LTE-VF  Process Signal Totalizer DIN Rail Transmitter

MLTE-VF | Ethernet & 4-20 mA Output | Process Signal Totalizer | DIN Rail Transmitter

The Micron process signal input transmitter and totalizer accepts 0-1 mA, 4-20 mA or 0-10V signals from flow meters and other transducers, such as watt meters, to track rate or totalized rate.

  • With a Standard Main Board, the transmitter output can track rate (such as gallons per minute or watts) or totalized rate (such as gallons or kilowatt hours) whether the transducer output is linear or requires square root extraction (differential pressure flow transducers).
  • With an Extended Main Board, the transmitter can also perform custom curve linearization (provided by a curvilinear spline fit with up to 180 data points), display 1/ rate (such as the time it takes a conveyor to pass through an oven), and perform batch control for repetitive fill operations. Such applications typically make use of optional dual solid state relays, which are available as options. External reset of totals is provided by a special connector.
Signal Conditioner Board for Micron Analog Input Flow Rate Meter and Analog Flow Totalizer

A signal conditioner board converts the full-scale 0-1 mA, 4-20 mA or 0-10 V analog signal to a frequency of 10 kHz to 110 kHz. This frequency is determined by measuring period over a selected gate time (from 10 ms to 200 s) and taking the inverse of period. At the lowest frequency of 10 kHz and the minimum gate time of 10 ms, the transmitter is capable of 25 updates per second. Scaling is done mathematically. Totals are calculated as the product of rate and time in seconds regardless of the selected gate time. Totals are stored in nonvolatile memory in case of power loss.

Standard features of Micron MLTE transmitters include:

  • Ethernet I/O, isolated. Supported protocols are Modbus RTU and ASCII (tunneled via Modbus TCP) and Custom ASCII. The latter is simpler than the Modbus protocol and is recommended when all devices are Micron units. Note that RS232 or RS485 data I/O in lieu of Ethernet is provided by MLT Series transmitters.
  • 4-20 mA, 0-20 mA or 0-10V analog transmitter output, isolated, jumper-selectable and user scalable. All selections provide 16-bit (0.0015%) resolution of output span and 0.02% output accuracy of a reading from -99,999 to +99,999 counts that is also transmitted digitally. Output isolation from signal and power grounds eliminates potential ground loop problems. The supply can drive 20 mA into a 500 ohm (or lower) load for 10V compliance, or 10V into a 5K ohm (or higher) load for 2 mA compliance.
  • Dual solid state relays, isolated. Available for local alarm or control. Rated 120 mA at 130 Vac or 180 Vdc.
  • Universal 85-264 Vac power. Low-voltage 10-48 Vdc or 12-32 Vac power is optional.

Discovery and configuration of the Ethernet Nodes is easily achieved with the Node Manager Software, and the discovered transmitters can then be programmed using the Instrument Setup Software. Both software's run on a PC under MS Windows and can be downloaded from this website at no charge.
