General Description

TDC-GP22 is a 2-channel TDC with additional analog elements like extended fire-pulse generator, zero-cross detection and analog switches for simplifying the use in ultrasonic flow meter applications. The addition first-hit detection makes TDC-GP22 suitable for high dynamic applications as ultrasonic water meters. An optimized power managements of the various units brings down the operating current to a few µA at 2Hz measuring rate.

This product suits for the following applications:

  • Ultrasonic water meters
  • Ultrasonic heat meters
  • Ultrasonic gas meters
  • Ultrasonic flow indicators
  • Laser rangefinders
  • Magnetostrictive sensors
