Current Meter Counters CMCsp

The Hyquest Solutions Current Meter Counter Signal Processor (CMCsp) is a small electronic device used to clean the signal from a mechanically rotating current meter such as a Price AA or Pygmy meter and directly reads the velocity on the LCD as well as interfacing to a PDA for computation of velocity and discharge. Meters using a cat whisker head and ball and wire contact to perform a mechanical switch closure can be used with the CMCsp to produce a clean, noise-free signal.


Main Features:
