Universal Pulse Transmitter

Issue/Rev. 0.2 (8/06) Bulletin SS01105

The Smith Meter Model Universal Pulse Transmitter
(UPT) is an infra-red, quad-channel, high-resolution pulse
generator driven by the output shaft of a positive displace-
ment meter. It provides high-integrity pulse transmission
and verification of signal and power for custody transfer
measurement applications.

Dual-Pulse (Quadrature) Output for signal integrity
checking and direction sensing.
Complementary Pulse Output for power check.
Verification Pulse (Pulse per Revolution) for inde-
pendently checking signal transmission. Universal Pulse Transmitter (UPT)

the comparator device will be actuated when used with

Complementary Pulse Output
The UPT Transmitter incorporates a state-of-the-art infra-
red emitter coupled through a rotating disk to a receiver The dual (A and B) complementary pulse output provides
array. This guarantees pulse tracking capability as the a check to compatible instrumentation for power off con-
infra-red emitter ages. The array detects the passage of ditions. With electrical power to the UPT Transmitter, the
slots on the disk, supplying the information to an applica- logic on voltage and frequency of A and B will be a
tion-specific integrated circuit board that converts them,
by means of the self-contained electronic circuitry, into
positive square wave output signals. Circuit design is such
that the high-resolution pulse signals generated are ap-
proximately 90 degrees electrically out of phase. The pulse
trains are compatible with all Smith MeterTM electronics. A Etc.
As a normal function of the array, a verification pulse
output is generated to provide one pulse per revolution of
the input shaft.
B Etc.
The Model UPT Transmitter provides a high-resolution
pulse output whose integrity can be checked for pulse
transmission errors resulting from induced noise, loss of A
transmitter power, malfunctioning transmitter, faulty trans-
mission cable, etc. This is accomplished by interfacing
the transmitted signals with a pulse sequence compara-
tor device. Flow direction can also be detected with the
appropriate instrumentation. B Etc.

With the transmitter shaft turning in the counter-clockwise

direction, the two pulse channels (A and B) are compared
for a constant pulse stream...ABABAB... Each time the
