Rate/Totalizer/Batch Controller Features
RATE DISPLAY
INDICATION
LED labeled R on right illuminates when meter is
displaying rate input.
LOW-FLOW
CUTOFF
Any input below the low-flow cutoff value will result
in a display of zero. May be set from 1 count to
100% F.S., user selectable. To disable low-flow
cutoff, program cutoff value to zero.
In multi-point calibration/scaling, the total is based
on the rate display; so, inputs below the low-flow
cutoff value will not affect the totalizer.
In K-factor scaling, the totalizer ignores the low-flow
cutoff; the totalizer counts every incoming pulse
regardless of the rate display.
ALTERNATING
DISPLAY
Display may be programmed to alternate between
rate and total every 10 seconds.
TOTAL DISPLAY
0 to 999,999; automatic lead zero blanking
TOTAL DECIMAL

TOTAL
CONVERSION
FACTOR
Programmable from 0.00001 to 59999.
This is a multiplier applied to the rate display to
obtain the total in any engineering units.
TOTALIZER
In multi-point calibration/scaling, the meter
calculates the total based on rate display and field
programmable total conversion factor to display total
in engineering units. Time base must be selected
according to time units in which rate is displayed.
In K-factor scaling, the meter calculates the total
based on the input pulses, K-factor value, and total
conversion factor.
TOTALIZER
ROLLOVER
Totalizer rolls over when display exceeds 999,999.
Relay status reflects the display.
TOTALIZER
PRESETS
Up to four, user selectable under setup menu Setup.
Any set point can be assigned to total and may be
programmed anywhere in the range of the meter.

Programming
Overview
The meter is programmed using the ENTER button, three jumper
arrays, and switch S1. The ENTER button is used to calibrate the meter,
program various totalizer functions, and to set alarm trip and reset
points. The jumper arrays are used for programming the input signal,
lockout, relay acknowledge enable, and relay fail-safe operation. This
section of the manual deals with programming the following aspects of
the meter:
•
Basic Meter Programming
•
Rate Meter Setup
•
Totalizer Programming
•
Set Point Setup and Programming
•

•
Lockout and Display Selection Programming
General Programming Description
All programming is performed using the ENTER button. To set up a
function there are sequential steps that have to be performed. As each
step progresses, either a single digit or the entire display will flash. The
flashing digit, or flashing display, will be looking for acknowledgement if
it is the desired digit or display. Pressing the ENTER button will accept
the value. If the flashing display or digit is not the one desired, wait and
the value will change.
Each digit will flash for 3 seconds before it starts to change, when it is
accepted the next digit will flash for 3 seconds. This procedure will
continue until the ENTER button is pressed while the desired option is
flashing. As the programming progresses there will be times when a
decision has to be made, an example is yes or no ( y or n ).
ENTER and ACK Functionality
The ENTER button is used to program the meter for various functions.
The ACK button is used to acknowledge the relays during operation and
to quit main menu scroll during programming, diagnostic menu, and
calibration.

Basic Meter Programming
Overview
The meter is programmed using the ENTER button, three jumper
arrays, and switch S1. The ENTER button is used to calibrate the meter,
program various totalizer functions, and to set alarm trip and reset
points. The jumper arrays are used for programming the input signal,
lockout, relay acknowledge enable, and relay fail-safe operation.
There are three steps for programming the basic meter functions:
1. Select Input Signal
2. Select K-Factor, Calibration, or Scaling Method
3. Program K-Factor, Calibrate or Scale the Meter
To disable the relays’ fail-safe operation it is necessary to remove the
snap-off cover from the enclosure and remove the fail-safe jumper JP6
on the Display Board, see Figure 2 on page 20.
Note
To simplify programming, write down the desired programming
settings prior to attempting to program the meter. The
Programmed Parameter Settings form located on page 84
provides a convenient method to record the user settings; it
also provides the factory settings for most of the
programmable parameters.
Quit Menu Scroll, Diagnostic, and Calibration
To quit main menu scroll, diagnostic menu, calibration, or scaling
press ACK while displaying menu item or while display is flashing
input n or display n, where n is the input or display number.
Minimum Input Span (Error Message)
The calibration input signals must be within the range of the meter
and input 2 must be greater than input 1. However, the display for
input 2 does not have to be greater than the desired display for
input 1.
If input 1 signal and input 2 signal are within 3 Hz, an Error message
will appear and the display will return to the current input to be
calibrated. To terminate calibration process press ACK button.

Gate Function (Gate)
The gate function is used for displaying slow pulse rates. In the previous version
of this meter, the minimum rate that could be displayed was 0.33 pulse/sec.
Using the programmable gate, the meter is able to display pulse rates as slow as
1 pulse every 99 seconds (0.0101 pulse/sec). The gate function can also be used
to obtain a steady display reading with a fluctuating input signal.
The gate function (Gate) has been added to t bASE menu. After time base is
selected, Gate will appear. If there is no need to change gate setting, let it time
out without pressing ENTER. There are two settings for the Gate, low gate (LO)
and high gate (HI).
Low Gate (LO)
For most applications, low gate setting should be left at 1.0 second. Increase low
gate setting to obtain a steadier rate display. The rate display will update in
accordance with the low gate setting, for example if low gate is set at 10.0, the
display will update every 10 seconds; changes in rate between updates will not
be reflected until next display update.
High Gate (HI)
Set the high gate value to correspond to the highest expected pulse width (lowest
pulse rate). For instance if the meter must display a rate when there is 1 pulse
coming into the meter every 10 seconds, set the high gate to 11.0 seconds.
When the signal is removed from the meter, the display will show the last reading
for 11 seconds; then it will read zero.

any input below the cutoff point is always displayed as zero on the rate
display.
In multi-point calibration/scaling, the total is based on the rate display;
so, inputs below the low-flow cutoff value will not affect the totalizer.
In K-factor scaling, the totalizer ignores the low-flow cutoff; the totalizer
counts every incoming pulse regardless of the rate display.
To set the low-flow cutoff point Cutoff
Press ENTER, then press it again when
Cutoff (low-flow cutoff) appears.

The entire display will flash for three seconds.

Set Totalizer Conversion Factor (tot CF)
The totalizer conversion factor is a number that is multiplied by the rate
to compute the total. For example, if the rate display is gallons per hour
and total is desired in barrels, (1 gallon = .02381 barrels) a total
conversion factor of .02381 should be used. If the rate display is gallons
per hour and total is desired in gallons, a factor of 1 should be used.
The factor has a selectable decimal point. Because the decimal point is
mathematically significant, values such as 1.0000, 1.0, and 1 produce
identical results. However, values such as 1.1111, 1.1, and 1 produce
different results. The decimal point should be set so as to produce the
best resolution for the application. The maximum value for the totalizer
conversion factor depends upon the decimal point selection.

Set Point Setup and Programming
Overview
The meter is available with 4 alarm points and corresponding front panel
status LEDs as a standard feature. The front panel LEDs are useful for
alarm applications that require visual notification only. For applications
that require relay contacts, such as driving external alarm devices or
batch controlling, the meter can be equipped with either two or four
relays. Any of these relays may be assigned to rate or total.
Programming the relays involves four steps:
1. Setting the relay manual reset (ACK enable) jumpers:
These jumpers (JP3) are located on the Display Board and
determine if a relay can be reset manually.
2. Setting the fail-safe jumper (JP6):
Fail-safe mode (default): In the alarm condition, the normally closed
(NC) contacts are connected to the common (C) contacts of the
relays. The fail-safe operation can be disabled, by removing jumper
JP6 located on the Display Board.
3. Setting set point functions using setup (SETUP) menu:
a. Selecting set points for rate or total.
b. Selecting latching or non-latching relay action for rate set points.
c. Selecting preset offset for total set points.
d. Selecting internal or external (I or E) total reset for batch control
applications.
e. Programming delay on release between 1 and 999 seconds if
internal total reset (I) has been selected.
f. Selecting pump alternation control feature for non-latching
relays.
4. Programming set, reset, preset, offset, and delay values using the
set points (SEtPtS) menu:
a. Set and reset points for alarms (set points) assigned to rate (thus
determining high or low alarm status and deadband).
b. Preset values for set points assigned to total.
c. Preset offset values for set points assigned to total with offset
selected.

normal operation. During an alarm condition the relay coils are
de-energized and the Normally Closed (NC) contacts are connected to
the Common (C) contacts. During a power failure the relay contacts
reflect an alarm condition.
Removing jumper JP6 disables the fail-safe operation. Jumper JP6 is
located on the Display Board, see Figure 2 on page 20. If fail-safe
mode is disabled, the operation of the relay contacts is opposite to
the one described in the previous paragraph.

Instruction Manual
Assigning Set Points to Rate or Total (setup)
The optional relays can be assigned to respond to the rate or the
accumulated total using the setup function. Rate relays may be set for
latching or non-latching operation. Total relays may be programmed for
manual or automatic reset after a programmable delay on release of
between 1 and 999 seconds has elapsed. Delay on release is available
when internal total reset is selected. The internal total reset function is
applied to the highest programmed preset value.
The Setup menu is used to program the following:
1. Selecting a set point for rate or total
Any set point can be set up so it responds to the rate or total display.
2. Latching or non-latching relay action for rate set points
Any rate set point can be set up so it functions as a latching or nonlatching relay. In latching mode, the relay must be reset via the front
panel ACK button or an external switch wired across terminals AK and
CM at connector on the Main Board.
3. Internal or external total reset effect on total relays
If internal total reset is selected, the total resets to zero when the
highest preset value is reached. All relays assigned to total will
automatically reset after the delay on release elapses, allowing a new
batch to begin.
If external total reset is selected, relays must be reset manually. total
relays also reset when total is reset to zero.
4. Preset offset for total set points
Relays assigned to total can be programmed to trip at any point below
the next relay’s preset value. If preset offset mode is selected the
corresponding relay will always trip at a programmed offset value before
the next relay trips. When an offset value is being programmed, the
corresponding status LED flashes.
Example: Set point 1 and 2 are set up for total, with offset selected
(under set point 2). If the preset offset is set at 10, (during Set points
programming for set point 1), then relay 1 will trip 10 counts before
relay 2.

Program delay on release between 1 and 999 seconds if internal
total reset has been selected.
If internal total reset is selected, the total is automatically reset to zero
when the highest preset is reached, then a delay will occur before all
total relays reset automatically. The delay can be programmed
anywhere between 1 and 999 seconds. Once the delay has started, the
ACK button becomes inoperative for all total relays until the delay has
elapsed.

Programming Alarm Points and Presets (SEtPtS)
Overview
The set points (SEtPtS) menu is used to program the following
functions:
1. Set and reset points for alarms assigned to rate, thus determining
high or low alarm status and deadband.
2. Preset values for set points assigned to total.
3. Preset offset values for set points assigned to total with OFFSET
selected
Set and Reset Points for Rate Alarms
The meter can be programmed so any alarm point that is assigned to
rate can be set for a high or low alarm. In addition, any rate alarm point
can be programmed for 0-100% deadband. A rate alarm is programmed
for a high alarm, by programming the set point at a higher value than
the reset point. Conversely, a rate alarm is programmed for a low alarm,
by programming the set point at a lower value than the reset point.
Example: To program an alarm for a high alarm at 500, with 100 counts
of deadband program set and reset points as follows:
Set point:
500
Reset point: 400
Preset Values for Total Set Points
When a set point is assigned to total, a preset value at which the relay
will trip must be programmed. Unlike set points assigned to rate, which
require a set and reset point, set points assigned to total require only a
preset value. When the preset value is reached, the relay transfers. The
relay can be programmed to reset automatically or manually.
Preset Offset Values for Total Set Points (OFFSET)
A preset offset value can be assigned when two adjacent set points are
assigned to total and the second one has been assigned to OFFSET
during Setup above. The first relay of a pair will trip at a programmed
preset offset value below the second relay’s preset value.
Example: If the preset offset value is set at 10 then the first relay will trip
at 10 counts before the second relay trips.
In the above example the relay pair combination could be 1 & 2, 2 & 3,
or 3 & 4.
57
Series FIP Frequency/Pulse Meter
Instruction Manual
Programming Alarm and Preset Values (SEtPtS)
Alarm, preset, and preset offset values are programmed under the
SEtPtS menu, one at a time, starting with set point 1. The set points are
programmed according to whether they were assigned to rate or total
during the setup program. For set points assigned to rate, it is necessary
to program both a set and reset points. For set points assigned to total,
either a reset value or preset offset value needs to be programmed.
The 4 discrete LEDs labeled 1-4, on the display indicate which set point
is being programmed.
For set points assigned to rate, there are two LEDs labeled S and R that
indicate whether a set or reset point is being programmed.
When programming set points assigned to total, only one of the 4
discrete LEDs on the display will be illuminated at a time. A flashing
LED indicates that a preset offset value is being programmed, a steadyon LED indicates that a preset value is being programmed.

Lockout and Display Selection Programming
Overview
The meter provides the user with the ability to restrict modification of
programming values and to exclude menu titles from appearing during
the menu scroll. Restricting modification of the programming values is
accomplished by installing the lockout jumper (JP2). Excluding menu
titles from the menu scroll is performed with the dSPLAy menu.
Lockout
The lockout jumper is used to restrict modification of calibration and
programming values. It is labeled JP2, and it is located at the rear of the
Main Board. When ENTER is pressed with the lockout jumper in place,
SCale, CalIb, Cutoff, Tbase, Tot Cf, and dECPt do not appear during the
menu scroll, and thus cannot be modified.

Display Selection (dSPLAy)
The display (dSPLAy) menu is used to remove menu titles from
appearing during the menu scroll. This feature is useful for eliminating
unused menu titles from the menu scroll, making it impossible to
perform certain functions, and making the display automatically toggle
between rate and total.
For instance, the user may want to eliminate certain unused menu titles
from the scroll that do not relate to a particular application such as those
relating to flow totalization. The dSPLAy menu could be used to
eliminate the rSEt t (reset total) and the dSPy t (display total) and thus
streamline the menu.
A supervisor may want to make it impossible for an operator to perform
certain functions, but still allow himself to do them without having to
remember passwords or remove a hard-to-get-at jumper. For instance,
a supervisor could program the meter with the batch presets he wants
and disable the SEtPtS menu, thus making it impossible for a user to
change the batch presets by using the dSPLAy menu. When the
supervisor wants to change the batch presets, he can re-activate the
SEtPtS menu and make his changes. Or a supervisor may want to make
it impossible for an operator to reset the total via the front panel, but still
allow himself to do it easily. This can be accomplished by removing the
rSEt t (reset total) menu title from the menu scroll, thus making it
impossible to reset the total via the front panel and then re-activating it
when he wants to reset the total.
The user may want to make the display automatically toggle between
rate and total. This can be accomplished by setting the dspy r (display
rate) and dspy t (display total) menus to n (no), as described below.
With the lockout jumper in place, the menu titles dspy r, dspy t, rset t,
dspy p, setpts, dsplay, and, output can still be accessed. The 4-20 mA
output calibration points can be viewed, but cannot be modified.

OPERATION
Overview
This instrument is a frequency/pulse input meter with flow rate, totalizer,
and batch control capabilities housed in a 1/8 DIN high-impact plastic
enclosure with a NEMA 4X front. It accepts pulse (±125 mV to ±12 V),
square wave (0-5 V, 0-12 V, or 0-24 V), open collector (NPN or PNP),
TTL, or switch contact closure signals; and displays these signals in
engineering units on a 0.56" high 4_ digit LED display. The meter also
provides one isolated 12 VDC or 24 VDC power supply to drive either
the input or output loops. Options include up to 2 relays for alarms or
batch controlling as well as an isolated 4-20 mA transmitter output.
The front panel of the meter consists of six 0.56" high seven-segment
LEDs as well as nine programming/operational LEDs. The
programming/operational LEDs provide the following indication:

The four alarm status LEDs indicate alarm condition only and do not
represent relay status when set points are set up for non-latching relay
mode. For instance, if alarm 1 is programmed for a high alarm at 500
with manual reset of the relays and the operator resets the relays when
the display reads 650, the #1 LED will stay on until the display falls
below 500.
Set points set up for latching relay mode will reflect the status of the
LEDs, regardless of the status of the alarm condition. For instance,
when a latching relay is acknowledged the corresponding status LED
will extinguish.

Two Types of Display: Rate and Total
The meter has the capability to display both rate and total. The operator
may toggle back and forth between flow rate and total automatically or
manually. When the meter is displaying rate, an LED labeled R on the
right side of the front panel, illuminates to indicate this. There is no loss
of data while performing any of the programming or calibration
operations; the meter continues working in the background even when
values are being reprogrammed.

Basic Meter Operation
Overview
In its most basic form, the meter provides a digital display in engineering
units of any frequency input signal. As a standard feature, the AC
powered meters provide the power to drive either the input or the
4-20 mA output transmitter option.
ENTER and ACK Button Operation
In addition to programming the meter, the ENTER button is also used to
operate the meter.
The ACK button is used to acknowledge the relays during operation and
to quit main menu scroll during programming, diagnostic menu, and
calibration.
The ENTER button performs the following operations with lockout
jumper installed:

Note:
While in the DSPy P (display peak) mode, the meter continues
capturing new peaks; but it does not respond to signals below the
last peak value captured; it remains “locked” on the peak display
reading. For instance, if while the meter is displaying a peak of 100,
the input increases to 150, the new peak of 150 will be displayed. If
the input falls down to 125 before the peak display is reset, the
meter will continue displaying 150 as the peak reading.

Low-Flow Cutoff (CutoFF)
The low-flow cutoff feature allows the meter to be programmed so that
any input below the cutoff point is always displayed as zero on the rate
display.
In multi-point calibration/scaling, the total is based on the rate display;
so, inputs below the low-flow cutoff value will not affect the totalizer.
In K-factor scaling, the totalizer ignores the low-flow cutoff; the totalizer
counts every incoming pulse regardless of the rate display.

Totalizer Operation
Overview
The total is displayed on a six-digit display that is capable of reading to
999,999. When the total exceeds 999,999, the display rolls over and
begins counting from zero again without loosing counts. The total can
be reset at any time via the front panel, via an external switch closure,
or when the meter reaches the highest preset value.
In multi-point calibration/scaling, the meter calculates the total based on
rate display and field programmable total conversion factor to display
total in engineering units. Time base must be selected according to time
units in which rate is displayed.
In K-factor scaling, the meter calculates the total based on the input
pulses, K-factor value, and total conversion factor.

Relays Operation
Overview
The relay capabilities of the meter expand its usefulness beyond simple
indication to provide users with alarm and control functions. These
capabilities include front panel alarm status LEDs as well as either 2
optional relays. There are four basic ways the relays can be used:
1. High or Low Alarms
2. Simple On/Off Control with 100% Adjustable Deadband
3. Automatic Batch Control
4. Manual Batch Control
Relays Auto Initialization
When power is applied to the meter, the front panel LEDs and alarm
relays will reflect the state of the input to the meter. For instance, when
meter is powered up, the following table indicates how the alarm LEDs
and relays will react based on the various set and reset points:

The meter is supplied with four alarm points that include front panel
LEDs to indicate alarm conditions. This standard feature is particularly
useful for alarm applications that require visual-only indication. The front
panel LEDs are controlled by the set and reset points programmed by
the user. When the display passes a set point for a particular alarm, that
alarm’s LED will light up. When the meter passes back through that
alarm’s reset point the LED will go off. The front panel LEDs respond
differently for latching and non-latching relays.
For non-latching relays, the LED is always off during normal condition
and always on during alarm condition, regardless of the state of the
relay.
For latching relays, the alarm LEDs reflect the status of the relays,
regardless of the alarm condition. The following tables illustrate how the
alarm LEDs function in relation to the relays and the acknowledge
button:

Instruction Manual
Acknowledging Relays
There are two ways to acknowledge relays programmed for manual
reset: via the front panel ACK button and remotely via a switch wired
across AK and CM terminals on the Main Board. When the ACK button
or a switch wired across the AK and CM terminals is closed, all relays
programmed for manual reset will reset.
The total display is not affected by this action and therefore pressing the
ACK button or closing the acknowledge switch will not reset the total.
Delay on Release (delay)
The meter can be programmed so that when the highest preset value is
reached the total automatically resets to zero (Automatic Batch Control).
A delay on release can be programmed to reset the total relays after the
delay has elapsed. The delay can be programmed between 1 and 999
seconds.
Example: Under the setup menu, relay 1 and 2 are assigned to total,
OFFSET is not selected, internal total reset (I) is selected and a delay of
60 second is programmed. Under SEtPtS menu, the preset values are
programmed as follows:
Set 1 (preset 1): 1000
Set 2 (preset 2): 2000
When the total reaches 1000, relay 1 transfers. The total keeps
increasing until it reaches 2000; at that moment, relay 2 transfers, the
total resets to zero automatically, delay on released starts. Then 60
seconds later relays 1 and 2 reset automatically and are ready to start a
new batch.
Priority Batch Programming or Quick Presets
For some batch control applications it may be necessary to change the
presets frequently. The meter has a Quick Preset change feature that
allows all presets to be changed without entering the programming
routine.
To change presets without entering the programming routine press and
hold the ENTER button for more than 3 seconds. The meter will go
immediately to the first preset; the user can now program all presets.
After the last preset has been programmed the meter returns to reading
the rate or total.
It is recommended to disable the process while changing presets.

Switching Inductive Loads
The meter has the ability to suppress electrical noise generated by
switching inductive loads. However installing resistor-capacitor (RC)
networks improves performance and prolongs the life of the meter’s
relay contacts. This suppression can be obtained with RC networks
assembled by the user or purchased as complete assemblies. Refer to
the following circuits for RC network assembly and installation:
Switching AC and DC Loads
Figure 20. AC and DC Loads Protection
Choose R and C as follows
R: 0.5 to 1 for each volt across the contacts
C: 0.5 to 1 F for each amp through closed contacts
Notes:

Use capacitors rated for 240 VAC.
RC networks may affect load release time of solenoid loads, check to
confirm proper operation.
Install the RC network at the meter's relay screw terminals. An RC network
may also be installed across the load. Experiment for best results.
Switching Low Voltage DC Loads
Use a diode with a reverse
breakdown voltage two to
three times the circuit
voltage and forward current
at least as large as the load
current.

Lockout and Display Selection Operation
Overview
The meter provides the user with the ability to restrict modification of
programming values and to exclude menu titles from appearing during
the menu scroll. Restricting modification of the programming values is
accomplished by installing the lockout jumper JP2. Excluding menu
titles from the menu scroll is performed with the display menu.
Low Voltage Detector
The meter has a circuit, which monitors the line voltage. To protect
against data loss the meter will shut down, after saving the total, when
the voltage falls below specifications.
At power up the display normally flashes a test display of 188888 for a
few seconds. If the line voltage is below specifications the meter will
flash 18888L until the problem is corrected.
Diagnostic (dIA9) Feature
Overview
The diagnostic menu in the meter provides an easy way to view and
write down the parameter settings. The information gathered through
the diagnostic menu will be helpful to determine if a wrong setting is
causing the operation of the meter to be undesirable.

NOTES
MAINTENANCE
Upon final installation of the Series FIP Pulse Input Flow Indicator, no routine maintenance is
required. A periodic check of the system calibration is recommended. The Series FIP is not field
serviceable and should be returned if repair is needed (field repair should not be attempted and
may void warranty). Be sure to include a brief description of the problem plus any relevant
application notes. Contact customer service to receive a return goods authorization number
before shipping.
