SM43JR20 flow meter project

Recommended Posts

I am using the example project provided in Unilogic for flow totalizing and everything proves out except the low end of my Linear conversion is still passing data.  20 mA (1023) passes 200gpm, and half signal, 12 mA passes 100gpm with no issues. 


4 mA should pass 0; but I am still getting data to my "Total gallons per minute", when I put 1-4mA through with my Fluke signal generator. This seems to defy logic as 0-4mA should not be passed!

Any ideas on this?

And Van, welcome.  FYI, the program you are using is Visilogic, not Unilogic.  Just letting you know, as incorrect referencing could cause confusion because it is a totally different system from Unitronics.

Kratmel's answer is the solution, but the reason as such is that Linearisation will continue to do it's instructed outputs if input parameters go outside the supposed maximum or minimum.  this is especially confusing if using 4-20ma inputs.
