This guidance applies to water meters multi rate MTVS-1 / 2, corresponding to the specifications XXXX (hereinafter - the instruments).

Before installing and using the instrument to read the manual.

Due to continuing improvements in device design and its software are subject to change.

Security measures

May install, installation, calibration, maintenance and operation of devices available to individuals who possess the necessary skills and familiar with its operational documentation.

A source of danger for the installation and operation of the device is the electrical network, coolant, pressurized to 1.0 MPa and a temperature of 90 C.

Erection and dismantling of flow transducers and temperature must be made at all is no excess pressure in the pipe and disconnecting the device from the mains.

At installation, maintenance and calibration device must be respected "Rules of the operation of electrical consumers," the "Safety rules for the operation of electrical consumers."

Purpose of the device

The devices are designed for measurement and metering of volume and temperature of hot water and the amount of cold water.

Applications: water supply facilities and community purpose.

Principle of operation

The algorithm of the device is receiving, processing and storing information received from the following external devices:

  • Flow meter in the pipeline with hot water;

  • flow meter in the pipeline of cold water;

  • Temperature sensor on hot water pipes.

Channel Flow Measurement of cold water produces a measurement of the volume and writes it to the archive memory, accompanying the consumed amount of time consumption. Archive appliance daily, with a capacity for one year.

In the channel the hot water unit not only measures the flow of hot water, and measure its temperature, recording the data in the backup memory. This approach allows to take into account not only the quality of the service, but also pay for the consumed water in accordance with its temperature. (See Resolution of the Government of the Russian Federation of May 6, 2011 N 354 "On the provision of public services to owners and users of facilities in apartment buildings and houses ").

In accordance with the above decision of providing hot water temperature at the point of parsing at least 60 C for open systems and district heating to 50 C for closed systems. The temperature at the point of parsing should not exceed 75 C. Allowable deviation of the temperature of hot water at random in the daytime between 06:00 and 23:00 should not exceed 3 C, and at night from

23:00 to 06:00 5 C. The device measures the flow rate, time consumption and hot water in the following temperature

Temperature ranges:

For day to <40 40-42 42-45 45-48 48-51 51-54 54-57 57-60> 60> 75 NoT

For night mode <40 40 40-45 45-50 50-55 55-60> 60> 75 NoT

Thus, the archive device is formed by a kind of table that stores the values of consumption

and time consumption of hot water in accordance with their temperature range. When an abnormal situation in the channel temperature measuring the flow rate will be recorded in section NoT.

Composition and device unit

The device consists of the following components:

  • system unit (SB);

tective cover.

RS-232 interface is standard PC case. The remaining interfaces are implemented by plug-ins.

Display-panel keyboard (the CSA) has a keyboard (9 keys), 4 LEDs for operation modes

and back lit LCD display. The display has 2 lines of 20 characters.

Measurement modules

The unit comes with one to two AT connected to Sat pairs of wires and a temperature measurement module.

AT can be arbitrary, having a pulse output such as "dry contact" with a pulse repetition frequency of 100 Hz and a pulse duration of 20 ms to mene.

Filling the block

Unit is provided with seals to prevent the possibility of disassembly, alteration or reconfiguration without apparent damage.

Configuration parameters are protected from change a jumper is installed on board the system unit.

The outer cover is sealed through the holes that do not allow to remove it without damaging the seal.

Sealing of the measuring modules

Sealing test modules implemented after verification. The method of sealing depends on the design of the measuring unit.

After installing the measuring unit, he sealed the connector on your.

Filling the system unit

Filling the system unit by a representative power supply organization. Protective jumper block is located on the motherboard settings, the system unit. After all the settings for the acceptance of its operation, to protect against changes in these

parameters representative of the power supply organization must:

  • jumper in position "B";

  • seal the front panel mounted Sat filling, using for this purpose the holes on the base unit and DCT.

Error of the instrument should not go beyond the above values when operated under the conditions specified in section 4.2.

Algorithm for the accumulation of integrators and calculation of the average temperature

Accumulation (integration) of the amount of cold and hot water is produced by adding a period of time proportional to the price momentum established by AT and instantaneous flow rate as


V n = V n1 + ∆V n ; V n = V n-1 + ΔV n;

V n values of the integrators at time n;

V n1 the values of the integrators in the previous point in time (n-1);

ΔV n = Gv n / l/imp-volume of water passed through the pipeline in the interval

between two pulses of the meter.

In calculating the average temperature (for the time of consumption) are used, the temperature values measured between the two pulses of the meter. Т.е. That is, if the meter has a price momentum 1l/imp, the first temperature measurement will be made at the time of receipt of the first pulse (passing through a pipe of 1 liter of water) and the second after receiving the second pulse. The average value of temperature, thus, will be formed on the water consumption of 2-m liters. The next measurement temperature occur on the arrival of the next pulse from the AT, but the average will be calculated between the temperature of the previous measurements and measured after the arrival of the last pulse. Accordingly, the decomposition rate on temperature will be produced at an amount equal to twice the price momentum in the.
