MULTICAL® connects to most flow sensors with a pulse output or is supplied with flow meter ULTRAFLOW .

The difference in time between the two signals is proportional to the water flow. 3. The water flow is measured by means of ultrasound by sending a sound signal with the water flow and one against the water flow. 9. 2. C.

The electricity meters and Water metres shall be connected to the same calculator to produce a combined reading for each tenant to be transferred to the AMR software terminal 2. Features include: 1. The flow sensor for cooling metering and heat/cooling metering is an ultrasonic meter of the type ULTRAFLOW  65-1/T which is available from qp 0. Energy calculation comprises temperature measurement in flow and return flow pipes and correction for specific gravity and heat content based on the requirements in EN 1434. Meets the specifications of EN 1434 Ultrasonic measurement principple 0. The temperature range of the flow sensor is from 2-50°C. 7.6 m³/h and up to qp 1000 m³/h. This implies that the flow sensor must be mounted in the return flow pipe in bifunctional heating/cooling systems. Temperature sensors are delivered as matched pairs and are designed to provide extreme high accuracy and reliability. 4. Data output to a billing system and at the same time providing data to a BMS system.4 TEMPERATURE SENSORS A. Calculators used for for cooling meters and heat/cooling meters must always be wall-mounted or the like to protect against condensation from the cold flow sensor. The MULTICAL can be fitted with 2 individual communication modules. MULTICAL receives volume pulses from the connected flow sensors and calculates energy for each predetermined water volume. 2. F.
