Looking for a way to log a dry contact pulse.

Post by Guest » Sat Jun 16, 2007 4:52 pm

I've looked through the Pico devices, and have tried searching the forums, but can not find the info I'm seeking.

So I'm hoping one of you pico guru's could take a second to answer a quick question.

I need to log some data come from a water flow meter. This piece of equipment opens/closes a dry contact when a gallon of water flow through it.

Would it be possible using pico software/hardware to log these pulses and display the data? If possible, which piece of software?

Thank you for your time.

Hi and thank you for your post.

Our loggers are test and measurement equipment, our software does not do pulse counting, however you can achieve this if you wish to write your own software. We provide the description of the function calls and some programming examples to get you started.

Hope this helps.
