Hello, I need help about configuring HSC to work with flowmeter. Which type of counting (counting, frequency), operating phase (single, two...), count direction and other parameters, need to use to work properly??? The specification said: The circulation of fluid within the pipe causes the paddle wheel of the sensor to rotate. The flowmeter detects the rotation of the paddlewheel and generates a signal which frequency f is proportional to the flow rate Q, using the formula f = KxQ. f = frequency in Hertz (Hz) K = K factor of the S020 or S030 fitting used, in pulse/litre Q = flow rate in litre/second how to know K factor? How to calculate litres?

Counting of frequency is the only variable in your formula, f = K x Q. Since you want Q, simple algebra says Q = f / K I do not know where K is found, but I would probably start with the specification documentation for the S020 or S030 fitting, whichever you are using.
