Device description

  • A smart diaphragm gas meter with volume conversion picoELCOR-2 is a compact device for measuring gas consumption for smaller objects (e.g. administrative and trade objects). It is intended for measuring natural gas consumption and data transmission via the built-in modem.

    The basic part of the device, ensuring the measurement of the operating gas volume, is the membrane gas meter METRIX UG G10, G16, or G25. The device is supplied with a membrane gas meter size G10, G16, or G25.

    Recalculation of the measured gas volume to standardized conditions, evaluation, and display of the operating quantity and recalculated gas volume is provided by the integrated picoELCOR-2 electronic counter with the display. The electronics of the smart gas meter also include a combined gas pressure and temperature sensor integrated directly into the body of the membrane gas meter. Remote reading of gas meter data is possible using the built-in modem.

    The electronic counter is designed and approved to EN 12405‑1:2005+A2:2010 / EN 12405-1:2018 as a type 1 converter (compact system) and can be supplied with PTZ or PT conversion.
