PPC-2 Portable Pulse Counter

PPC-2 Portable Pulse Counter

Solid State Instruments’ PPC-2 Portable Pulse Counter is a new low-cost field tool for testing a meter’s KYZ pulse outputs. The PPC-2 supplies its own wetting (sense) voltage to the meter’s Y and Z dry-contact outputs. The PPC-2 counts the closures or “pulses” of either one or both sides of the KYZ output. As such, it can be used to test either Form A (2-wire) or Form C (3-wire) pulse output devices.

The PPC-2 is compatible with either electromechanical or solid-state relay outputs. It is powered by a rechargeable battery with 40-hour operating life, and fully recharges in approximately 5 hours.

Designed for the rigors of the field, the PPC-2 is packaged in a nearly indestructible ABS handheld enclosure with a rubber protection boot. Three banana jack inputs (K, Y and Z) are provided with standard Red, Yellow and Black test probes for connecting to wires or terminals of the meter’s KYZ output. Upon each transition of the KYZ switch, the counter will register a count and update the display. The 8-digit display allows a maximum count of 99,999,999 and can be manually reset by the user at any time. Thus, the PPC-2 can be used to ensure that the pulse output is operating correctly.
