MTEK6000 SERIES USER'S MANUAL
CHAPTER 1: OVERVIEW
NOTE: The MTEK6000 is similar in
many respects to the Metretek AE6000
but there are also differences.
The
information in this manual applies only to
the MTEK6000.
The MTEK6000 series products are lowcost microprocessor-controlled, electronic
devices for measuring gas flow and volumes
or monitoring pressure and temperature for a
system.
With integral pressure and
temperature transducers, the MTEK6000 is
designed for accuracy, reliability, and ease
of maintenance. It can mount directly on a
meter's index plate, on a wall or pipe.
Low-power CMOS design and sophisticated
power conservation circuitry allow the
MTEK6000 to operate one to two years on
battery power.
Two pulse inputs, two status inputs, two
pulse outputs, two external analog inputs
(4-20 mA or 1-5V) and a tamper input are
standard. A large 13-digit LCD display,
with a magnetic scroll switch located on the
enclosure exterior, permits data viewing
without opening the enclosure. Station
parameter display and alarm display can be
performed with only external device. The
standard internal 2400/1200/300 baud
modem provides remote configuration,
calibration, and retrieval of data.
The operator can also use an industrystandard portable computer running
Metretek software to configure parameters.
See Chapter 5 for information on these
packages.
The MTEK6000 calculates
corrected volume using AGA-7, AGA-3,
AGA-5 and NX-9 or AGA-8 reports.
Optional equipment includes an external
keypad and display for configuration and
calibration, analog output modules, two
additional pulse outputs, serial port modules,
and various security options.

2. Carefully unpack the MTEK6000 from
the shipping container. Verify that the
box contains every item listed on the
shipping order.
INITIAL CHECK OUT
!!! CAUTION !!!
This unit contains certain electronic
components that are sensitive to
electrostatic discharge (ESD); therefore,
proper precautions should be taken
during maintenance operations to avoid
ESD.
It is recommended that the
operator first touch the shell of the MS
connector (RS-232C port) on the left side
of the unit to dissipate any accumulated
static charge. Additional precautions
may be taken in order to minimize the
possibility of ESD, including the use of a
grounding wrist strap (i.e., 3M part
number 2214).
3. Examine the label on the left side of the
enclosure. It indicates the serial number
and pressure range for your unit. Verify
that these parameters match your
requirements. If they do not, please
contact your sales representative.
4. Open the front door by loosening the
upper and lower right hand corner screws
or quick release latches of the enclosure
and swinging the door out. See Fig. 1-1.

MTEK6000 SERIES USER'S MANUAL
NOTE
The flashing LCD display indicates an
alarm condition (e.g. First Time Power).
See Chapter 3 for information on alarms.
8. You can now view selected parameter
values on the display by using the scroll
switch. The scroll switch is activated by
the use of a magnet (one is shipped with
the unit). See Display Mode, in Chapter
3, for information about this function.
B. MTEK6000 UPS power supply - an uninterruptible 12 VDC power supply with
battery back up.
C. SPS 50 solar system - 10 to 64 W systems
available with battery backup; while
selected system size depends on
geographic location, degree of sun
exposure, equipment power consumption,
and site obstructions, most MTEK6000
applications only require a 10W system.
POWER FOR THE MTEK6000
Two 4.5V alkaline battery packs (part #
1011-0035C-001) supply operating power to
the device for approximately two years of
typical operation. Recommended operating
temperature range for the MTEK6000 when
powered with these packs is –4 F (-20 C) to
130 F (54 C). If this supply should fail, an
on-board back-up battery will maintain the
unit's memory and real time clock. Backup
power can maintain history data for up to
seven years. When back-up power is used,
the unit discontinues normal operation until
the main battery pack is replaced.
Note that only one power source powers
the MTEK6000; connection of battery
packs to a unit configured for external
power does not provide an additional
source of backup power for the unit.
MOUNTING THE INSTRUMENT ON
THE METER
1. Check the meter's rotation direction.
Standard setup is clockwise rotation of the
meter output shaft, as viewed from the top.
The rotation of the unit can be changed to
counterclockwise. Also, the input drive
value for the unit can be changed.
2. Align the instrument's index base plate
holes with the corresponding holes in the
meter's index base plate. Secure the unit
by bolting it to the meter. Ensure that the
drive dogs are correctly aligned and not
binding.
3. Plug all unused holes in the index base
plate with the caps provided in the
accessory package.
Optional Power Supplies
Several optional supplies are available:
A. Two Single-D Lithium battery packs (part # 1011-0039B-001) provides an
approximate life expectancy of two years
over the temperature range -220 F (-300 C)
to 1580 F (70 0 C). Each 3.6V, 13.0 AH
battery pack can be used individually (~
1yr life) or as a pair.

When changing a MTEK6000 in the field
from a 10, 100, 1,000 or 10,000 ft3/rev drive
meter with a 5 ft3/rev drive, the CF per Pulse
In or Meter Drive parameter, must be
changed to a value of 10 using software or the
optional, external keypad / display.
NOTE
Electronic parameter CF per Pulse In or
Meter Drive should always equal the meter
drive value EXCEPT for 5 ft3/rev meters
which should be set at 10. When switching to
5 ft3/rev, the gear ratio is adjusted so that two
revolutions of the input drive gear result in
one revolution of the magnet and hub
assembly, which sends a pulse signal to the
instrument that equals 10 ft3/rev. The value
can be changed using software or the
optional, external keypad / display (see
Appendix A for addressing).

UNIT AND INDEX ROTATION
In general, the label side of the index base
plate (front) should face the front of the meter.
This allows the MTEK6000 EFC to also face
the front of the meter. In certain applications,
the MTEK6000 EFC and index can be
installed 1800 from the standard position so
that viewing of the MTEK6000 EFC is
acceptable. To rotate the unit and index, refer
to Fig. 2-3 and do the following:
1. Remove the 4 bolts at location A.
2. Rotate the base plate 1800 clockwise so
that the front label side is now facing the
rear of the unit.
3. Insert the 4 bolts into location B with the
two lockwashers as shown. Fig. 2-3
shows the index orientation after the
rotation is completed.

January 2002
MTEK6000 SERIES USER'S MANUAL
PULSE INPUT TO THE MTEK6000
Magnetically operated reed switches inside
the meter drive assembly send electronic
pulses as the drive turns. These pulses
represent uncorrected meter volume to the
instrument.
To eliminate false counts that can result from
the reed switch "bounce”, the MTEK6000
uses
a
set/reset,
dual-reed
switch
configuration. An input pulse is generated
only when the opening and closing of the
first switch is followed by the opening and
closing of the second switch. The main
counter input is also monitored for fault
conditions. When enabled, if any of the dualreed switches should be defective, the input
pulses will automatically switch to the
working counter input and the MTEK6000
will generate a Faulty Counter alarm. This
function is enabled if the Counter Fault
Monitoring parameter is set to 1 and
disabled if set to 0. The default value is 0 for
disable. See Appendix A for addressing.
Software is used to configure the pulse input.
The optional, external keypad / display can
also be used to configure the pulse input and
other parameters. See Appendix A for
addressing.
WALL AND PIPE MOUNTING
The MTEK6000 can also mount directly on a
wall or on a pipe. Mounting feet are provided
for wall mounting. See Figure 2-5.
For pipe mounting, approximately 10 feet of
2-inch rigid iron pipe or conduit is required.
The pipe should be installed 18 to 24 inches in
the ground in 6 inches wide concrete. The
length of the 2-inch mounting pipe or conduit
will vary according to the site, but typical
installations place the MTEK6000 at about
eye level for ease of operation. Mounting
plates are provided for pipe mounting. Secure
the MTEK6000 to the pipe with the provided
U-bolts, washers and hex nuts. See
Figure 2-6.
For units supplied with indexes, the main
counter input is terminated at the UNIT
(BLK) MTA connector and the uncorrected
pulse wiring at the FIELD (WHT) MTA
connector at the lower right hand corner of
the corrector printed circuit assembly.
Metretek, Inc. can supply a remote index
similar to the main index or a sandwich
pulser for wall or pipe mount installations.
When the sandwich or external pulser option
(1, 10, 20, or 50 pulse per revolution) is
supplied, connect the N.O., COM, and N.C.
wiring to terminals 32 (SET1), 33 (GND) and
34 (RST1) respectively.
The pulse input is software selectable for
Form C (three-wire) or Form A (two-wire)
connection.

TRANSDUCERS IN THE MTEK6000
The MTEK6000 uses a precision strain gauge
pressure transducer mounted inside the unit,
combining maximum accuracy with low
power consumption.
To sense gas
temperature, the MTEK6000 employs a
highly linear and stable device, a platinum
resistive temperature detector (RTD). Case
temperature sensing is accomplished with an
on-board precision reference integrated
circuit (IC).
CONNECTING THE PRESSURE
TUBING
WARNING
You must DEPRESSURIZE THE METER
and its associated piping before you make
pressure piping connections. FAILURE to
do so may result in EXPLOSION and FIRE,
causing SERIOUS PERSONAL INJURY
and PROPERTY DAMAGE.
Do NOT attempt to connect any piping or
fittings to a meter or pipe under pressure.
Do NOT SMOKE while connecting gas or
test pressure to the meter.
Note
Federal Standard 192.02 requires a shut-off
valve between the pressure source and the
instrument. A needle valve is supplied with
the optional pressure piping kit for this
purpose. Its rating is 1,500 PSIG MAOP.
January 2002
Figure 2- 5 Pressure Connections
As a minimum requirement, connect the
pressure tubing as shown in Fig. 2-7. An
optional pressure tubing connection kit (part #
2019-0009B-001) can be shipped with each
instrument. Fig. 2-8 is the recommended
pressure installation for ease of operation.
Additional piping and valve are required for
the installation and are not supplied. Use
Teflon tape or pipe seal compound on all
threaded connections. The tubing supplied in
the kit may be longer than you need for your
installation. You can cut or coil the tubing,
but do not make any sharp bends in it
(minimum radius is 3/4"). Tighten all the
connections and perform a leak test once the
meter and instrument are pressurized.

INSTALLING THE THERMAL PROBE
A thermal (temperature) probe is connected
to the MTEK6000 by a 6-foot (2-meter)
cable. You should coil excess cable to
prevent possible damage. The probe is
designed to fit into standard Metretek, Inc.
thermowells. Optional 15-foot (4.5 meter)
and 30-foot (9-meter) cables are available.
See Fig 2-10.
To install the thermal probe, use the supplied
temperature probe adapter. Refer to Table
2-1. Insert the probe into the thermowell and
tighten the securing nut FINGER TIGHT
only. The standard adapter is a ½” fitting.
Users retrofitting instruments requiring the
5
/8” adapter can order the adapter from
Metretek, Inc.
Oil or ethylene glycol (antifreeze) should be
used to improve heat transfer from the
thermowell to the thermal probe. Be aware,
however, that it is possible to cause hydraulic
crushing of the probe. This can happen when
there is little or no air in the thermowell
above the probe. When the probe is fastened
by tightening the securing nut, the space in
the well decreases as the probe enters. As a
result, hydraulic pressure may rise high
enough to cause damage. If you use oil or
antifreeze, make sure there is enough air
in the thermowell above the fluid to
prevent crushing the probe.
It is recommended that the thermowell be
installed in the meter outlet pipe one or two
diameters from the meter outlet.
The
insertion length of the thermowell must be
sufficient to extend at least to the pipe center,
but no further than 75% of the pipe’s
diameter. Thermowells should not be situated
where they will be exposed to direct sunlight.
A sunshield should be used for installations
where this cannot be avoided.

MTEK6000 SERIES USER'S MANUAL
INSTALLING THE PULSE OUTPUT
WIRING
The MTEK6000 comes standard with a
board installed that provides two optically
isolated pulse outputs. These outputs are
configurable as either Form C or Form A
type outputs. An alternative version of the
board is available that provides four pulse
outputs. Both versions of the board also
provide terminal block positions to access the
uncorrected mechanical volume switch
output of the index. See Fig. 2-11 for pulse
output wiring. The option boards optical
coupling and physical arrangement of
circuitry provide a minimum of 1,500 volts
of isolation.
Wiring connections for the pulse outputs are
made from terminals 19 to 17 for Pulse
output #1, terminals 16 to 14 for Pulse output
#2, terminals 13 to 11 for Pulse output #3 and
terminals 10 to 8 for Pulse output #4. See
Fig. 2-11 for pulse output wiring location and
Form C vs. Form A jumpering. Note that
proper operation of the Form C pulse output
configuration requires that a constant wetting
current be available at both the normally open
and normally closed terminals by the device
attached to that pulse output.
The corrected volume pulse output generated
can be scaled to any desired volume value.
Typical values are 10, 100, 1,000, or 10,000
cubic feet per pulse, or the metric equivalents.
The scaling factor is selected by the Pulse
Out CF Per Pulse parameters. The pulse
duration (width) is also configurable up to
5,000 ms. The Pulse Output On-Time and
Off-Time parameters determine the pulse
time for corrected volume, uncorrected
volume and pressure corrected volume pulses.
The Alarm Pulse Time (ms) parameter
determines the pulse time for alarm outputs.
See Appendix C in this manual or Meter
Reader Help screen for description of this
parameter.

Maximum switching voltage up to 30V.
Maximum switching current up to 200mA.
Maximum continuous current @ 500 mA.
NOTE
All pulse outputs are disabled in the standard
unit to conserve power. The Alarm pulse
output is a one time pulse output signal. No
other alarm pulse will be generated until the
alarm is cleared and becomes active again.
The uncorrected mechanical pulse output is
derived from the Form C reed switch in the
index assembly. As the magnet in the drive's
assembly rotates past the Form C switch, a
single uncorrected volume pulse output is
generated. Volume per pulse is determined
by the drive rate. Each uncorrected volume
pulse is equal to the gas flow for one shaft
revolution.
The pulse output can be wired as a Form A or
Form C switch output. Use terminals 25
(normally open), 24 (common) and 23
(normally closed) for Form C output. To
wire as Form A, use terminals 25 (normally
open) and 24 (common) and make no
connection to terminal 23 (normally closed).
The duration (width) of each pulse is equal to
the length of time the reed switch is in its
closed position (depends on the rate of the
meter). No configuration is necessary to
enable the uncorrected mechanical pulse
output.

MTEK6000 SERIES USER'S MANUAL
COMMUNICATIONS
Modem Communications (2400 Baud)
To communicate with the MTEK6000, the
Site ID (RUID) in the device must be the
same as the Site ID entered in the software
package.
The Site ID is a unique
identification number (1 to 65,535) that
allows the Metretek, Inc. software packages
to communicate with the MTEK6000. The
default Site ID number is 1. Software can be
used to enter a number other than the default.
Refer to the respective software User’s
Manual for additional information on these
and other functions. The optional external
display and keypad can also be used to
change the Site ID from its default value.
NOTE
This modem complies with Part 68 of the
FCC Rules. See Appendix E for details.
RS-232C Serial (Direct) Communications
(9600 Baud)
In its standard configuration, the MTEK6000
is equipped with one RS-232C serial port.
An optional RS-232C serial cable (Part #
1002-0235C-001) is required for direct
communications. The serial port allows an
operator to configure and collect data with an
industry-standard (IBM, Compaq, etc.)
portable computer (software is required for
this
function).
The
MTEK6000
communicates at 9600 baud with portable or
host computers connected directly to the
serial port. When communicating with the
MTEK6000, Busy will be displayed on the
display. Table 2-2 shows the diagnostic
features of the Activity indicator when the
cable is connected.
WARNING
The MTEK6000 will not go to sleep if the
RS-232C serial cable is left connected and
battery life will be affected drastically.
2-12
The internal Hayes compatible modem offers
automatic answering and dialing. The modem
communicates at 2400/1200/300 baud. The
modem by itself can only be used in areas
classified as non-hazardous or Class I,
Division 2. To maintain the MTEK6000’s
intrinsic safety classification in more
hazardous areas such as Class I, Division 1, an
optional Phone Line Interface (PLI) must be
used. This device removes the high voltage
ring-detect circuitry from the device and
brings low-level signals into the hazardous
area through intrinsic safety barriers.
Connecting the Telephone Line
If the MTEK6000 is situated in a nonhazardous or Class I, Division 2 area, connect
the tip and ring wires from the telephone
company's terminal box to the TIP and RING
terminals (1 and 2 respectively).
If it is installed in a Class I, Division 1, Group
D area, install the unit per the reference
drawing shown Appendix E.
Also see
Appendix D for proper jumper settings.
Installation of the phone line surge protection
device provided with the MTEK6000 is
strongly recommended when the MTEK6000s
internal modem is connected to a telephone
line. The device is a separate gas tube type
phone line surge suppressor and is housed in
its own enclosure suitable for mounting
directly to a telephone pole or other structure.

GROUNDING
The information presented here is merely a
guideline to help customers avoid surge damage
to the MTEK6000. None of these guidelines are
to be construed as replacing or superseding
rules and practices defined by the National
Electrical Code (NEC), or the Classification of
Gas Utility Areas for Electrical Installations
guidelines, as published by the American Gas
Association (AGA) or other regulatory agency.
A sound understanding of Federal, State and
Local laws is fundamental to proper and legal
installation work.
The MTEK6000 is configured so that the
majority of the internal metal components
within the device are connected (common) to
the gas pipeline / meter to which the
instrument is attached. Additionally, a large
surge bypass MOV device has been provided
inside the MTEK6000 that provides an
alternate path (rather than through the
correctors electronics!) for surge current to
flow. One side of this device connects to the
pipe through the index & meter. The other
side is brought out through the enclosure to
an external copper grounding lug. The
separation of these two points allows for the
existence of cathodic protection voltage
levels on the pipe (typically about 1 volt
below the surrounding soil) while still
providing a path for surge current to safely
bridge these points, find earth ground, and
not damage the instrument.
If the MTEK6000 is to be connected to a
telephone line (either on-board or through a
PLI mounted in a safe area) or connected to a
UPS (AC power supply), then the external
ground lug provided on the MTEK6000
should be connected to earth ground. If the
unit is not making connection to the phone
co. lines, power co. lines, or other external
equipment, then connecting the unit to an
earth ground simply introduces a path for
surges that otherwise would not exist. In this
January 2002
case it is of no benefit to earth ground the
MTEK6000’s external lug.
When the external ground lug of the
MTEK6000 is to be used, it should be
connected to a common ground rod (or "bed"
of grounding equipment) to which is securely
tied all other equipment chassis, metal
cabinets, and intrinsic ground brackets. Solid
copper ground wire or ground strapping of an
approved size and type must be used to tie this
equipment to the rod. If possible, it is far
preferable that all external equipment be tied
to a single site ground, that the distance
between the MTEK6000 and external
equipment is kept at a minimum (less than 20
feet is best), and the ground rod be located no
farther than halfway between the MTEK6000
and the other equipment.
If separate site grounds must be used, as when
the MTEK6000 and UPS are separated by a
distance greater than 20 feet, Metretek can
provide an optional device, the SPM (Surge
Protection Module). A pair of SPMs can
properly protect both devices in this
circumstance. Control drawings detailing
proper wiring of SPMs (including hazardous
areas) are included with the SPM.

January 2002
MTEK6000 SERIES USER'S MANUAL
For transport or interruptible customers, this
parameter can be used to alarm when an
account has exceeded a predetermined daily
volume allocation.
Faulty Counter Alarm (EFC)
This alarm is only valid for EFC units with a
Form C switch. If any of the dual-reed
switches in the index assembly fail, pulses
to the unit would automatically switch to a
working counter input. When this happens,
the unit generates a Faulty Counter alarm
(see the section on Pulse Input to the
MTEK6000 in chapter 2 for more details).
First Time Power Alarm
First Time Power alarm is defined as the reapplication of power after interruption of the
power source. For example, whenever the
battery
is
disconnected
and
then
subsequently reconnected, the unit records
the First Time Power event.

setpoints are user configurable with default
values of -100 and -80 respectively (see
Appendix A for parameter addressing for
your device).
Lost Differential Pressure Alarm (EFM)
A Lost Differential Pressure alarm is
generated when the differential pressure
circuitry is over-ranged. This can occur if
the differential pressure transmitter is
defective, or disconnected from the analog
board causing differential pressure readings
to be above or below the range of the
transducer.
3-4
Lost Pressure Alarm
A Lost Pressure alarm is generated when
the pressure circuitry is over-ranged. This
can occur if the pressure transducer is
defective, or disconnected from the analog
board causing pressure readings to be above
or below the range of the transducer.
Lost Temperature Alarm
A Lost Temperature alarm is generated
when the temperature circuitry is overranged. This can occur if the thermal
(temperature) probe is defective, or
disconnected from the analog board causing
temperature readings to be above or below
the range of the probe.
LowVolt Shutdown
On battery powered units, if the battery
voltage decreases to approximately 2.8
volts, an interrupt will be triggered and the
unit will enter Low Voltage (Critical)
Shutdown mode.
Low batt will be
displayed on the display.
This is an
indication that the supply voltage is
absolutely too low to operate the unit
properly. The battery must be changed at
this point or adequate supply voltage
applied.
For units that are externally
powered, this point will occur when the
input voltage drops to approximately 6.0
volts. In this mode, all operations cease, and
the unit operates in a protective mode. The
on-board battery will continue to protect the
unit's memory; therefore data prior to
entering this mode will be maintained. The
supply voltage is monitored constantly and
the unit will reset itself should the supply
voltage become greater than 6.0 volts. If the
unit is left alone without applying adequate
supply voltage, the battery will continue to
drain and the outside display will eventually
go blank.
When sufficient supply voltage is applied
and the unit powers-up, a LowVolt
Shutdown alarm will be recorded.

Open Door Alarm (optional)
The Open Door (tamper) alarm is initiated
when the door of the MTEK6000 opens.
When this occurs, a full wake-up is
triggered and the MTEK6000 executes its
processes. The alarm is inactive when the
door is closed.
Software Error Alarm
If there is a fault in the software, the
Software Error alarm will initiate.
MEMORY (HISTORY LOGGING)
The MTEK6000 has a total of 96K (Main
64K bank and Auxiliary 32K bank) of RAM
for database, audit trail, and history logging.
With the large memory capacity, over
81,000 bytes of non-volatile memory is
reserved for storing historical meter data.
The non-editable history file provides the
user with time-related data logged in any
variation of selectable intervals: minute,
daily, weekly, and monthly. An eventdriven history mode allows data logging
when an event occurs (e.g., alarms). An
experienced user with software can define
the type of data and collection period. Since
history data elements are stored in a memory
block, the size has to be assigned at the time
the history process is created in the device,
typically when the database is downloaded
at the factory.

Audit Trail
The MTEK6000 maintains an electronic
audit trail file that records all parameter
changes and calibrations performed on the
unit. Each entry is identified with the date
and time the event occurred. The contents
of this file cannot be changed, providing a
secure, non-editable audit trail.
In the standard MTEK6000 configuration,
the audit trail is disabled. You can enable
audit trail logging using Metretek, Inc.
software or editing the Audit Trail
Enable/Disable parameter to 250 using the
keypad and display.
NOTE
Once the audit trail is enabled, it cannot be
disabled without downloading a new
database with this feature disabled.
Once enabled, the device maintains the audit
trail file with a maximum of 250 records.
You can upload the information from the
unit to a portable or host computer using
3-8
Metretek software. Once the audit trail is
full, the device will not allow any other
changes to parameters; the audit trail must
first be uploaded and reset by the host
software.
Wake-Up on Pulse (Event Driven)
The MTEK6000 EFC employs a wake-up on
pulse (event driven wake-up) mode in which
the unit can be configured to wake-up on a
specified number of pulses (meter
revolutions). During wake-up, pressure,
temperature, and the rest of the analog
channels are sampled, and the unit executes
the processes and run calculations.
In this mode, the EFC should be configured
to wake-up on the number of specified
pulses along with an hourly wake-up to
record history data. See Appendix A for the
address of the Wake Up On Pulse (event
driven) and Wake Up Interval (Seconds)
parameters.
Analog Sampling
The MTEK6000 has the ability to sample
the dynamic analog input variable channels
at intervals from 1-99 seconds.
Once
enabled, the unit samples pressure,
temperature, case temperature, and the
external 1-5 volts or 4-20 ma channels once
for each selected interval.
NOTE
Battery voltage is NOT sampled at this rate.
The sample’s minimum and maximum
values are then checked against their
corresponding High and Low Setpoints. If
the device determines these conditions were
exceeded, it “wakes up” and finds the
average of all samples accumulated since
the last process execution, displays this
analog mean, and applies it to any necessary
calculations.
To enable, set Analog
Sampling Rate parameter to 1-99 seconds.
January 2002
MTEK6000 SERIES USER'S MANUAL
Example: A value of 1 will produce a 1 Hz
(once per second) and a value of 10 a .10 Hz
(once every 10 seconds) sampling rate. Set
to 0 to disable.
NOTE
Analog sampling will impact battery life in
battery-operated systems.
It is only
recommended for AC or properly sized
Solar power systems.

CALIBRATION MODE
Calibration mode allows the user to calibrate
any of the analog signals, such as the
pressure transducer or the temperature
probe. While operating in the calibration
mode, the MTEK6000 continues to store
pulses and periodically updates volume,
pressure, and temperature data using the
values measured when calibration mode was
initially entered. Once in calibration mode,
the user can perform the following
operations:
1. Calibrate zero only.
2. Calibrate span only.
3. Calibrate both zero and span.
Of course, the option to change the
calibration reference points is available at all
times. Several other features make the
software calibration routine attractive and
more intuitive. In the MTEK6000, unit
calibration is software-based; there is no
need for laborious operator adjustments.
Software calibration does away with the
need
for
repetitive
potentiometer
adjustments, thereby simplifying field
calibration procedures.
In order to perform calibration, you will
need a pressure source, temperature source,
and accurate reference indicators. You will
also need the Metretek, Inc. Virtual keypad

CHAPTER 4: OPTIONAL EQUIPMENT
ANALOG OUTPUT (AO) OPTION
The Analog Output Module (part # 10210001B-001) and connecting cable (part #
1002-0245B-001) provides a two-wire,
loop-powered, optically isolated, precision
4-20mA output. This module interfaces
with the MTEK6000 series product line to
provide a 4-20mA output for flow rate,
pressure, or numerous other control and
monitoring applications. Up to two modules
can be installed in the MTEK6000 in place
of the batteries by using the AO module
adapter plate, (Metretek stk #1008-0011B001).
Power for the digital interface section of the
AO is selectable by using the DIPswitches,
and can be supplied by Vcc of the
MTEK6000 or from the main supply
voltage. The AO module interfaces to an
MTEK6000 series product via the standard
I2C serial interface bus. The MTEK6000
unit requests the desired mA output from the
AO module using this bus. An I2C digital
I/O chip is used to send the information to
the analog output section of the AO board.
The analog output section of the board
derives its power from the current loop, and
is optically isolated from the digital control
interface section. The analog output section
receives commands from the digital I/O chip
through opto-isolators. Commands are in
the form of a serial data stream. The AO
module provides 4-20mA output signals
with a resolution of 1 part in 65536 (16 bit).
The D/A also allows for over-ranging of the
output to a minimum of 3.5mA and a
maximum of 24mA. The field interface to
the D/A is a simple two-wire connection.
Reverse polarity protection is provided.

Installing the Analog Output Loop
A ribbon cable connects the AO module to
the display / analog board. Commands are
sent to the module via the cable by the
MTEK6000 device. The 4-20mA current
loop is a simple two-wire connection. +24
volts DC nominal is connected to the “+”
terminal (pos. 1) and the “-”, or return
terminal (pos. 2), is connected to the field
instrument to which the 4-20mA signal is
being sent.

Chapter 5 : MAINTENANCE and
SOFTWARE PACKAGES
Changing the Battery
To replace the battery in the unit:
As with any device based on solid-state
electronics, actual maintenance of the
MTEK6000 should be minimal. However,
there are certain guidelines that, if followed,
will minimize device failure and increase
the product’s service life.
1. Open the front door by loosening the
upper and lower right hand corner
screws of the device enclosure and
swinging the door out (see Fig 1-1 and
1-2 in Chapter 1).
Enclosure Maintenance
2. Attach the new battery to connector J-6
or J-7 (see Fig. 2-1 in Chapter 2).
Enclosure maintenance is a program of
routine inspections to insure the integrity of
the lid's seal and the various ports in the
box's exterior. Excess moisture can ruin an
MTEK6000 if allowed to accumulate within
the enclosure. Although the circuit boards
themselves are conformal coated to protect
against
humidity,
the
wiring
interconnections and various exposed metal
surfaces are susceptible to corrosion in
extreme cases of interior humidity. Here are
some checks you should periodically make
of the enclosure:
1. Ensure the unit’s mounting arrangement
is secure and provides a stable platform
for termination of the pressure tubing.
3. Disconnect the old battery from the
other connector in the unit.
4. Press any key to wake-up the unit and
verify that it is fully operational.
Calibration
Calibration is a crucial element of any
scheduled maintenance program. However,
because of the unit’s design, software
calibration does away with the need for
laborious adjustments, simplifying field
calibration. See the section on Calibration
for more details.
2. Verify the integrity of the enclosure lid
seal.
Check the lid gasket for
deterioration, chemical damage, tears, or
compression.
3. Check for damaged cord grips and
missing or damaged RS-232C port caps.
Liquid must not be allowed to
accumulate within the interior of the
enclosure.
4. Examine the RS-232C port. Ensure the
port's mounting screws are secure and
provide firm support when attaching a
serial cable.

MTEK6000 SERIES USER'S MANUAL
APPENDIX B: CALCULATIONS
AGA-7 Volume Calculations
The MTEK6000 EFC performs volume
calculations based on the Ideal Gas Law.
Boyle’s Law is used for pressure and
Charles’s Law for temperature. These laws
state that the volume of any definite weight of
a perfect gas varies inversely with change in
absolute pressure and directly with change in
absolute temperature. The unit can perform
such calculations for turbine, rotary, and
diaphragm displacement meters.
AGA-8 Supercompressibility Gross Method 1
The EFC is configured with values for BTU
content, specific gravity and mol percent of
CO2.
AGA-8 Supercompressibility Gross Method 2
The EFC is configured with values for
specific gravity and mol percent of N2 and
CO2.
Vc = Vu x (Pm + Pa) x Tb + 459.67 x (Fpv)2
Pb
Tm + 459.67
Where:
Vc = Volume corrected to base conditions
Vu = Uncorrected line volume
Pm = Measured line pressure (psig)
Pa = Atmospheric pressure
Pb = Base pressure
Tb = Base temperature (0F)
Tm = Measured line temperature (0F)
Fpv = Supercompressibility factor
The unit makes continuous correction for the
specified gas composition based on actual
sensed pressure and temperature.
NOTE
All of the AGA factors can be based on either
flowing or constant values.
The supercompressibility factor can be
calculated from either NX-19 or AGA-8
Gross Methods 1 and 2 reports and applied to
the volume equation.
NX19 Supercompressibility Report
The EFC is configured with values for
specific gravity, mol percent of N2 and CO2.

APPENDIX C:
PARAMETER DESCRIPTION
The parameters relative to the operation and
configuration of the MTEK6000 are listed
below (See Appendix A for the addresses of
these parameters).
Alarm Pulse Output Enable/Disable
The EFC can generate a generic pulse output
on any alarm condition. This parameter
enables the pulse output through Relay #2.
Enter 35.7 to enable or 0.0 to disable. The
Default value is 0.
Alarm Pulse Time (ms)
This parameter sets the output band width in
milliseconds (ms) for pulse outputs generated
by an alarm condition. The user should take
care in assigning a value for this parameter.
The value should always be less than the
Wakeup Interval Parameter; else the unit will
stay awake for the duration of the pulse.
Range 0 to 32,000 ms. The Default value is
70.
Analog Sampling Rate (seconds)
This parameter sets the rate at which the unit
will sample its dynamic analog input variable
channels. When enabled, the unit samples
pressure, flow temperature, case temperature
and the external analog transmitters values
once for each selected interval.
The sample’s minimum and maximum values
are then checked against their corresponding
High and Low Setpoints.
If the unit
determines that these conditions were
exceeded, it “wakes up” and finds the average
of all samples accumulated since the last
process execution, displays this analog mean,
and applies it to any necessary subsequent
calculation.
January 2002
To enable analog sampling, set this parameter
to 1-99 seconds. Set to 0 to disable analog
sampling.
Atmospheric Pressure
If the station is configured for ABSOLUTE
pressure, enter 0.
Enter the actual
atmospheric pressure for GAUGE pressure.
The default value is 14.4 PSI for gauge and 0
for absolute.
Audit Trail Logging Enable
This parameter enables Audit Trail logging in
the MTEK6000. Examples of audit trail
events include editing any item at the device,
and logging the time it enters calibration
mode. After the maximum number of events
(250) has been logged, no more parameters
can be changed in the unit until the audit trail
is uploaded and reset by the software. This
parameter is disabled at the factory. The user
may enable Audit Trail logging by entering
250. Default value is 0 for disable.
NOTE
Once the audit trail is enabled, the user cannot
disable it without reloading the database.
Base Pressure
The Base Pressure parameter appears as a
factor in the Corrected Volume calculation. It
is one of the factors used to correct the
flowing volume, as registered by the meter
itself, to the base volume used for calculating
“Standard Volume”. The normal pressure
ranges for this parameter are 11.000 to 16.000
PSI.
The standard value for this parameter is
14.730 PSIA, 101.560 kPa, or 1.114 kg/cm2,
depending upon the system of units chosen
for the particular device. Default value is
14.73.

Base Temperature
The Base Temperature parameter appears as a
factor in the Corrected Volume calculation. It
is one of the factors used to correct the
flowing volume, as registered by the meter
itself, to the base volume used for calculating
“Standard Volume”. The default value of this
parameter is 60.000 degrees F.
Calibrate Mode Time-out
The fractional portion of this parameter is the
Calibrate Mode Time-out. It controls how
long the unit will remain powered up in the
calibration mode if no key is being pressed.
For example, a calibration time-out of 30
minutes would be entered as XX.30. The
default value is 60.30.
Calibration Password
A password can be entered to prevent
unauthorized users from accessing calibration
mode. The value may be up to six digits long
(including the decimal point and sign). The
Default value is 0.

six digits long (including the decimal point
and sign). The Default value is 0.
Corrected Pulse Output -Cubic Unit / Pulse
This parameter should reflect the value of the
corrected pulse output sent from the station to
an external device. For example, if each
output pulse represents 1000 cubic feet, then
this parameter should be set to 1000. The
Default value is 1000.
Corrected Pulse Out Enable/Disable
Corrected pulses can be sent to an external
device by enabling the Pulse Output Channel.
The rate at which pulses are generated is
determined by the Corrected Pulse Out - CF
per Pulse parameter. To enable Relay #1 for
pulse output, enter a value of 35.8. Enter -1
to disable. The Default value is -1.
C-2
Corrected Volume
The corrected volume is calculated based
upon AGA report #7 or #8 and reflects the
corrected volumetric flow taking the base
conditions into consideration. The Initial
value is 0.
Corrected Volume (Pressure Only)
The corrected volume is calculated based
upon AGA report #7 and reflects the
corrected volumetric flow taking only the
Pressure base conditions into consideration.
The temperature factors have no effect. The
Initial value is 0.
Corrected Volume and Flow Multiplier
This multiplier specifies the output value for
corrected volume and flow. For example, if
the device is to measure flow in thousands of
cubic feet (MCF), select Thousands (1000's)
of units from the pick list. The Default value
is 1000.
Ten Thousands (10,000's) of units

Counter Fault Monitoring (EFC Only)
This parameter can be used to enable or
disable fault monitoring on the main counter
#1. Form C (3-wire) input is required for this
function. In this mode, two working counters
are monitored for discrepancies. A “Delta”
value will be accumulated which reflects any
discrepancies between the counters. If any of
the dual-reed switches should be defective,
and the “Delta” exceeds the Counter Fault
Threshold parameter, the input pulses will
automatically switch to either working singleended counter. The EFC will generate a
Faulty Counter alarm. To enable, set this
parameter to 1 and to disable set to 0. The
default value is 0 for disable.

MTEK6000 SERIES USER'S MANUAL
Cubic Unit/Pulse In or Meter Drive
This parameter determines the volume unit
represented by one input pulse, and is
normally set to equal the drive (CF/Rev) of
the meter. Standard indexes produce one
pulse per revolution; therefore, the CF/Pulse
will equal the drive rate of the meter. The
Default value is 100.
For instruments utilizing remote pulsing
devices, this value can also be determined by
dividing the CF/Rev of the meter by the
number of pulses per revolution generated by
the remote pulser.
For example: Consider a 3GT meter with a
100 CF/Rev drive and a 50 Pulse/Rev Imac
Pulsamatic Transmitter. The CF/Pulse is
determined as follows:
CF/Pulse = 100 CF/Rev * 1 Rev/50 Pulses
= 2 CF/Pulse
NOTE FOR METERS WITH 5 CF/REV
DRIVE RATES:
Re-position the input compound gear to the
correct position, and set this parameter to a
value of 10. Refer to Section Two or contact
Metretek, Inc. for assistance in positioning the
compound gear.
Current Day High Volume Alarm Reset
After the Current Day's Total is exceeded, the
setpoint at which the unit exits this condition
is entered in this location. The Default value
is 99,990.
Current Day High Volume Alarm
Setpoint
This parameter specifies the setpoint at which
the unit determines whether the Current Day
Flow Total is in an alarm condition. For
transport or interruptible customers, this
parameter can be used to alarm when an
account has exceeded a predetermined daily
volume allocation. The Default value is
100,000.
January 2002
Date (Month, Day, Year)
This is the current Date in the unit
(MMDDYY). It is updated on each process
scan.
Flow Rate Update Interval (s)
This parameter determines how often the flow
rate gets updated in the EFC. However, it has
no control over Volume updates. Volume is
updated every time the unit wakes up from
the sleep mode or every 3-4 seconds if the
unit is always awake.
The Flow Rate Update Interval parameter is
of the form XXX.YY.M where the integer
portion (XXX) is the time interval in seconds
between Flow Rate updates. The digits after
the decimal point (YY.M) represent the zeroflow period (i.e. the amount of time to wait
without receiving pulses before generating a
zero flow rate). The first two digits are
minutes and the third digit (T) is a fraction of
a minute. Thus, a two-minute zero-flow
period would be entered as XXX.020, a ten
minute period as XXX.10. The maximum
allowed period is 27 minutes and the default
is one minute (XXX.010).
The user MUST specify a zero-flow period,
which is larger than or equal to the Flow Rate
Update Interval. Specifying a zero-flow
period smaller than the Flow Rate Update
Interval will result in a zero-flow rate being
displayed even when there is an apparent
flow. For example: A value of 600.11 would
update flow rate every 10 minutes and display
zero flow if 11 minutes passed without an
input pulse. A value of 600.01 will not work
properly. It would try to update flow rate
every 10 minutes, but would zero the flow
rate every minute, even if pulses come in
faster than one per minute.
