Interfacing Totalizer Value from ABB Process Flow Meter FEP300 to AC800M
We have a requirement to interface the totalizer value of ABB flow meter to AC800M Controller.
The flow value is getting totalized and displayed in the flowmeter local display.
Customer want this totalizer value to be interfaced to AC800M.
Calculating Totalizer value in AC800M using flow value is not preferred option by customer.
Flowmeter Model: ABB FEP300
Please suggest on how this totalizer value can be interfaced to AC800M for the above.

If the flowmeter has a profibus or profinet interface it is quite easy. Download the flowmeter GSD file from the support site and consult the flowmeter manuals for details of how to read the flow total.
For high accuracy flow totals, reading the total value from the meter is normally the preferred option so your customers request is very common.
