HyQuest Solutions’ current meter counter CMC20A is an enhanced version of the proven model CMC20 which is used with the majority of propeller current meters. CMC20A is a self-contained instrument featuring
- microprocessor control circuitry,
- a quartz time base,
- a high temperature liquid crystal display (LCD), and
- a buzzer.
This simple counter displays the accumulated pulse count for a range of preset time periods. The display gives continuous indication of the pulse count during the course of the reading period. It indicates with a resolution of 1. The maximum number of counts is 9999.
An internal buzzer sounds at each contact closure to indicate correct operation. When used for integrating depth measurements with a ground-feeler weight, the buzzer sounds continuously while the contacts are closed and counting continues (inﬁnity mode) until interrupted manually by the stop switch.
HyQuest Solutions’ Range of Current Meter Counters
HyQuest Solutions offers various current meter counters from the simplest model to advanced versions with enhanced features. They provide waterproof enclosures, simple button controlled menus, embedded LCDs and beepers to make counts audible. The sampling period can be pre-set or manually stopped. Further options: calculation and direct display of velocity, signal conditioning for improved accuracy, data transmission via bluetooth interface to HydroTab Stream Gauging Computer or other external PCs for discharge calculation. We are happy to provide help in choosing the proper device for your application.
