LectroCount® family of Electronic Registers

LectroCount® is Liquid Controls' series of electronic registers that replaces the mechanical register, calibration gears and/ or adjuster mechanism traditionally used on many flow meters. The LectroCount® series are Weights & Measures (custody transfer) approved advanced microprocessor based electronic register, presetting and printing control systems. LectroCount® is designed to meet - even adapt to - your flow meter and process control instrumentation requirements. Units are design to NEMA-4x non-incendive Class 1, Division 2, Group C & D. LectroCount® accepts pulse input from most flow meters and includes RS232/485 communications capability. The LCR-II is also available in a design for Class 1, Division 1 environments.

Two models of LectroCount® registers are available, the LCR-II and LCR 600. The LCR-II has been a standard in electronic registrations since its first appearance as the LCR-I in 1997. The LCR 600 is the next generation of electronic registration, incorporating a large display for displaying more information during a delivery as well as incorporating a keypad to eliminate the need for external devices to configure the unit. The LCR 600 also has a Point-of-Sale option that provides the ability to flexibly set prices, discounts and taxes for 100 products.


LectroCount™ LCR 600

The LectroCount™ LCR 600, the latest edition of Liquid Controls' popular LectroCount™ line of electronic registers, is loaded with advanced functionalities that can produce real savings for your bottom line. New features—such as the large 5.7" QVGA display and the alphanumeric keyboard—enable valuable new functionalities like the full-featured point-of-sale (or POS, an optional upgrade), instant diagnostic messaging, and customized delivery screens. The LCR 600 is a standalone unit; no extraneous lap top or a lap pad is required. All configurations—including calibration, system setup, and point-of-sale (POS)—can be entered using the alphanumeric keypad.

SPECIFICATIONS

  • REPEATABLILITY: Capable of .03% of reading over entire range.
  • LINEARITY: Capable of ±0.10% or better over a 5:1 range from maximum nominal meter capacity.
  • LINEARITY: Capable of ±0.10% or better over a 10:1 range from maximum nominal meter capacity.
  • LINEARITY: Capable of ±0.15% or better over a 40:1 range from maximum nominal meter capacity.

Due to the capabilities of multi-point calibration for meters equipped with LectroCount™ Electronic Registration, superior accuracy (linearity) can be provided as indicated above.

NOTE: Accuracy obtainable when all variables remain constant. Reading/ measurements must be equal to a minimum of one minute of flow at selected rate(s). All accuracy statements based on metering Stoddard Solvent, approximate viscosity 1 CPS. On higher viscosity products, the average deviation in accuracy will be even less.

LectroCount™ LCR-II

Liquid Controls produces among the most reliable and accurate metering systems available, worldwide. For truck-mounted or fixed-site custody transfer applications requiring Weights & Measures-approved accuracy, LC products deliver consistent, error-free, dependable service. Liquid Controls family of LectroCount electronic registers provide:

  • Improved efficiency relative to mechanical systems
  • Electronic temperature compensation
  • Weights & Measures approvals
  • Ruggedness and reliability
  • Simplicity of operation
  • Compatible with mobile computing solutions such as the DMS i1000

Features and Benefits of Electronic Registration:

  • Muti-point calibration to improve the accuracy over a wide flow range
  • Electronic Temperature Volume Compensation (ETVC) to reduce lost volume
  • Increased security
  • Future expansion and modulatirity with RS232/485 communication
  • Greater control and accuracy of the delivery system through use of two stage vales, optical air eliminators and the LectroCount system as a central control unit
  • Lower total cost of over ship through fewer moving parts, solid state electronics and longer MTBF (Mean Time between Failure).
