This European Standard specifies the requirements and tests for the construction, performance, safety and conformity of gas-volume electronic conversion devices associated to gas meters, used to measure volumes of fuel gases of the 1st and 2nd families according to EN 437.
Only three kinds of conversion are treated in this standard:
- conversion as a function of temperature only (called T conversion);
- conversion as a function of the pressure and of the temperature with constant compressibility factor (called PT conversion);
- conversion as a function of the pressure, the temperature and taking into account the compressibility factor (called PTZ conversion).
These gas-volume conversion devices consist of a calculator and a temperature transducer or a calculator, a temperature transducer and a pressure transducer locally installed.
Any conversion device can provide an error curve correction for a gas meter.
NOTE When rendering an account to an end user the readings from the conversion device can be used in conjunction with the readings from a gas meter conforming to EN 1359, prEN 12480, or prEN 12261, as appropriate, or to any other appropriate and relevant international or national standard for gas meters, without prejudice of national regulations.
This standard is intended for type testing only.
Annex A is normative and annex B is informative.
