The Minitrol-PW is a single input counter/ratemeter intended for use
with low flow paddle or pelton wheel turbine flowmeters. Two scale
factors are used to describe the flowmeter calibration characteristics.
The two 5 AMP preset relay outputs can be programmed by the user
to apply to the "A" total counter or the "A" ratemeter. The user can
view the rate, total and grand total.

Dimensions: See MINItrol-S
The K-Factor is used to convert the input pulses to engineering
units. The two 5 digit scale factors, with decimal keyed into any
position, allow easy direct entry of any scaling factor from 0.0001
to 99999. Factor A is used to enter the linearized K-Factor and
Factor B is used to enter the offset frequency.
A low flow cutoff is provided to inhibit operation in low flow out of
range regions.
Accurate to 4 1/2 digits (±1 display digit). The rate meter can
be programmed to accept almost any number of pulses per
unit of measurement and auto-range up to 5 digits of significant
information. The display can be programmed to read in units
per Second (
), Minute (
), Hour (
), or Day (
The two 6-digit totalizers can count at 10kHz speed. They
share a 5-digit dividing scale factor. The totalizer performs as

Low flow, Pelton Wheel turbine flowmeters have a transfer
characteristic which can best be represented by the following
equation for frequencies above the minimum usable flowrate
for the device:
frequency =
) – Offset Frequency
Klinearized and offset frequency are scaling constants
determined during flow sensor calibration.
This transfer characteristic applies within the meter
manufacturers published range. Below some minimum flow
meter output frequency, the flow rate should be considered
as 0 and the totalization inhibited. This is called the "cutoff"

The DRT (Dual Rate Totalizer) is a dual 5 digit Ratemeter 6 digit
Totalizer in a 1/8 DIN package. User selects 1 of 6 displays to
show A, B or C rate and A, B or C total. Inputs A and B have
separate scaling to read in engineering units.
A 4-20mA (0-20mA) output of the C rate or total is optional.
The user can press the VIEW button to see 6 separate items
total A, total B, total C, rate A, rate B, rate C. Negative values
are displayed with a negative symbol ( ). For the C value,
the user can choose from the following combination of A&B
inputs: TOTAL; with a choice of A+B or A-B; RATIO with choice
of A÷B(x100) to show percent of A to B quantity or A÷[A+B(x100)]
to show percent of A to total quantity.
Two independent presets are standard. User selects whether
output A is activated by total or rate value of input A or selected
C. Output B can be activated by total or rate value of input B or
selected C. Outputs activated by A or B total can be set to latch
or autorecycle with an adjustable output duration from 00.1 to
99.9 sec. For rate, ratio, or C total outputs pull in when value is
equal or above the preset and drop out when value is below the
preset minus the selected 0 to 999 hysteresis.
EEPROM stores data for 10 years if power is lost.

Analog Output:
An optional 4-20mA (0-20mA) output is available for
the DRT. The output can be programmed
to track rate or total of the C display. This feature is available
by adding suffix A to the part number. Connections are
via a 2 terminal pluggable screw connector.
Programming is accomplished by using the front panel
in conjunction with rear dip switches.

The DRT has two separate K-Factors that are used to convert
the input pulses to engineering units. The 5 digit K-Factor
dividers, with decimal keyed into any position, allow easy direct
entry of any K-Factor from 0.0001 to 99999. Separate factors
may be entered for the 2 separate input channels.
