When a pulse counter at the electric meter senses that a set point in peak demand is being approached, a communication is transmitted to each lighting panel to send a highfrequency signal along the power line to trigger the ballasts to step down output by 30 percent.
* Wi-Pulse--a dual-inputs pulse counter used to transmit values from electric, gas and water meters.
A Transistor Pulse Counter. Br J Anaesth 1955; 5:261-263.
The USBee DX provides a 2 analog and 16 digital channel Logic Analyzer/Oscilloscope, click and drag instant decode of embedded bus transactions (including I2C, SPI, ASYNC, CAN, USB low and full speed, I2S, SM-Bus, PS/2 and 1-Wire), digital voltmeter, data logger, digital signal generator, pulse width modulator, frequency counter, frequency generator, I2C Controller, and pulse counter. In addition, designers are able to create applications to control the USBee DX with the USBee Toolbuilder source code and library.
Spinwave Systems, a provider of wireless mesh sensor networks for the building automation market, introduced a wireless pulse counter for remote metering applications.
The DX builds on the company's USBee AX Pro Test Pod and offers two analog and 16 digital channels, click and drag instant decode of embedded bus transactions (including [I.sup.2]C, SPI, ASYNC, CAN, USB low and full speed, [I.sup.2]S, SM-Bus, PS/2 and 1-Wire), digital voltmeter, data logger, digital signal generator, pulse width modulator, frequency counter, frequency generator, [I.sup.2]C controller, and pulse counter. In addition, users are able to create applications to control the DX with the USBee Toolbuilder source code and library.
I then realised I had a pulse counter on my pedometer.
Featuring an internal modem and as many as seven additional scale inputs, eight analog outputs, and 16 pulse counter inputs, each of the systems is housed in a NEMA 4X stainless-steel enclosure suitable for harsh environments, the company reports.
The measuring setup consists of a loop antenna operating at a frequency of 100 kHz and a pulse counter with a set threshold for monitoring EME intensity per unit time.
