EM6422 pulse emitter is a leakproof pulse emitter designed to connect PD meters to flow computers. It has a special magnetic drive leakproof connection to permit a removal of the electronic card without any spill of product.


Pulses emitter EM6422 is used to convert the rotary motion of a Positive Displacement Flowmeter into electric pulses, thus allowing the meter to interface with ISOIL electronic counters (VEGA II, VEGA T, VEGA 3). Type A may be mounted directly on all recently built ISOIL PD meters while type B is for old versions of ISOIL meters since it is provided with an adapter. A version for meters of other brands is also available upon request.



EM6422 is made of an aluminum casing divided into two compartments separated by an aluminum wall. In one of the two compartments, a small shaft installed on a roller bearing is connected on one end to the output shaft of the pd meter and on the other end to a magnet. Inside the adjacent compartment, another magnet detects the rotation of the shaft and causes an electronic circuit to generate electric pulses. Therefore, there is no need for dynamic seals that can cause leaks due to wear over time. The housing is closed by a cover with O-ring and has a threaded female inlet for cable entrance by conduit or by cable gland. The electric wiring is made through a removable and easily accessible terminal block.


Pulses transmission

The shaft of the EM6422 is connected to the meter shaft. Each rotation of the rotor equals 64 or 256 pulses which are generated on two channels (A and B) with a phase shift of 90° electrical degrees. The coupling between the magnet and the sensor is continuously monitored by the electronic circuit. Any malfunctioning will result in a pulse transmission on a single channel only. The electronic counter receives a number of pulses proportional to the delivered volume enabling the user to check:

  • The correct transmission and operation of the EM6422 by simply comparing the count of both channels.
  • The flow direction by analyzing the pulse sequence.


CAN bus transmission

The encoder is provided with a micro-controller counting the pulses from a magnetic sensor (A, B and Index channels). The number of generated pulses (64 or 256 pulses per round) and the frequency are transmitted to the flow computer through a CAN bus connection by means of an ISOIL proprietary protocol. This protocol includes a key controller to avoid tampering of legally relevant data. The integrity of the electronic circuit can be checked by monitoring the sequence on A, B and index channels, and the coupling between magnet and sensor. Any malfunctioning can be immediately detected by monitoring the status of the CAN bus protocols. Electronic counter VEGAII/VEGAT/VEGA3 linked with EM6422 CAN bus require a specific firmware.
