Summator, 24 Metering Channels
The U1600 Summator processes pulse signals and is capable of recognizing digital states. This allows for the logging, visualization and optimization of all electrical and non-electrical energies and energy consumption, as well as cost center billing.
Up to 24 pulse signals can be connected, which originate, for example, from flow meters, energy meters and heat meters.
32 processing channels use these signals to calculate work, power or consumption. These values are summated over predefined time periods at a programmable interval, and are stored together with the respective maximum values.
4 relays (changeover contacts) are available for the control of external processes, and can be directly activated either with the user specific summator background program, or with a PC via the interface.
Data exchange with the PC or remote querying via modem is accomplished with the RS232 interface (19.2 kBit/s). An additional RS232 interface allows for the use of a radio controlled clock for system time synchronization, or a report printer.
Individual summators can be interconnected over great distances via the multi-master compatible ECS LAN with a freely selectable network topology, and are provided with unrestricted access to data from all of the network users.
Thanks to its high level of integrated intelligence and the ECL custom programming language, the U1600 summator is suited for customer specific calculations, evaluations, monitoring and optimizations as well - independent of the Energy Control System.
