Register Resolution (also called read resolution) determines where the decimal point goes in an encoder read. Getting the correct resolution–and recording it in BEACON–is essential for accurate customer billing. Read/Register Resolution is based on a combination of factors: meter model and size, encoder type, unit of measure (gallon, cubic foot or cubic meter) and the type of endpoint that is attached to the encoder.
For more information on determining the read resolution of ORION and GALAXY endpoints connected to Badger Meter Recordall® Series meters, Badger Meter ADE® encoders and Badger Meter E-Series® with High-Resolution Protocol encoders, see the following application briefs on BadgerMeter.com:
- Test Circle Codes HR-E Encoders (ENC-AS-00300-EN)
- Test Circle Codes HR-E LCD Encoder (LCD-AS-00462-EN)
- Test Circle Codes RTR (RDC-A-01)
To obtain the read resolution of encoders made by third parties, consult with their manufacturers.
