Gas meters - Conversion devices - Part 1: Volume conversion

This document 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.
This document is intended for type testing, the detailed relevant provisions of which are given in Annex A.
Only three kinds of conversion are treated in this document:
-   conversion as a function of temperature only (called T conversion);
-   conversion as a function of the pressure and of the temperature with constant compression factor (called PT conversion);
-   conversion as a function of the pressure, the temperature and taking into account the compression factor (called PTZ conversion).
This document is not relevant to temperature conversion integrated into gas meters which only indicate the converted volume.
EN 12405-2 applies for energy conversion.
Gas-volume conversion devices consist of a calculator and a temperature transducer or a calculator, a temperature transducer and a pressure transducer locally installed.
For application of this document, a conversion device may be, as a choice of the manufacturer, considered as a complete instrument (Type 1) or made of separate elements (Type 2), according to the definitions given in 3.1.18.1 and 3.1.18.2.
In this last case, the provisions concerning pressure transducers, temperature sensors and temperature transducers are given in Annexes B, C and D respectively.
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, EN 12480, or EN 12261, as appropriate, or to any other appropriate and relevant international or national standard for gas meters, without prejudice of national regulations.

Gaszähler - Umwerter - Teil 1: Volumenumwertung

Dieses Dokument legt die Anforderungen an Herstellung, Leistungsumfang, Sicherheit und Konformität elektronischer, am Gaszähler angeschlossener Zustands-Mengenumwerter, die für die Mengenmessung von Brenngasen der ersten und zweiten Gasfamilie nach EN 437 eingesetzt werden, sowie deren Prüfung fest.
Dieses Dokument ist für die Bauartprüfung vorgesehen, deren relevante Bestimmungen im Einzelnen in Anhang A angegeben sind.
In diesem Dokument werden nur drei Arten der Umwertung behandelt:
- die Umwertung als reine Temperaturfunktion (T-Umwertung);
- die Umwertung als Funktion von Druck und Temperatur mit einem konstanten Realgasfaktor (PT-Umwertung);
- die Umwertung als Funktion von Druck, Temperatur und Realgasfaktor (PTZ-Umwertung).
Dieses Dokument gilt nicht für eine in einen Gaszähler integrierte Temperaturumwertung, wenn der Gaszähler lediglich das umgewertete Volumen anzeigt.
Zustands-Mengenumwerter bestehen aus einem Rechner und einem Temperaturaufnehmer oder aus einem Rechner, einem Temperaturaufnehmer und einem Druckaufnehmer, die in der Messanlage installiert sind.
Für die Anwendung dieses Dokuments kann ein Umwerter in Übereinstimmung mit den Definitionen 3.1.20.1 und 3.1.20.2 und je nach Hersteller ein Kompaktzustands-Mengenumwerter (vollständiges Gerät, Typ 1) sein oder aus getrennten Elementen bestehen (Typ 2).
Im letztgenannten Fall sind die Bestimmungen zu Druckaufnehmern, Temperaturmessfühlern und Temperaturaufnehmern in den Anhängen B, C bzw. D enthalten.
Alle Umwerter können auch Einrichtungen zur Korrektur der Fehlerkurve des Gaszählers enthalten.
ANMERKUNG   Unbeschadet nationaler Regelungen können die Zählerstandsablesungen vom Umwerter in Verbindung mit den Zählerstandsablesungen von Gaszählern, die EN 1359, EN 12480 bzw. EN 12261, wie jeweils zutreffend, oder anderen zutreffenden und relevanten internationalen oder nationalen Normen für Gaszähler entsprechen, für die Rechnungsstellung an Endverbraucher genutzt werden.

Compteurs de gaz - Dispositifs de conversion - Partie 1 : Conversion de volume

Le présent document définit des exigences et des essais pour la fabrication, les performances, la sécurité et la conformité des dispositifs électroniques de conversion de volume de gaz, associés à des compteurs de gaz et utilisés pour mesurer des volumes de gaz combustibles de première et deuxième famille, telles que définies dans l’EN 437.
Le présent document est destiné aux essais de type, pour lesquels les détails sont fournis à l’Annexe A.
Le présent document traite uniquement des trois types de conversion suivants :
-   conversion en fonction de la température seule (appelée « conversion T ») ;
-   conversion en fonction de la pression et de la température avec un facteur de compressibilité constant (appelée « conversion PT ») ;
-   conversion en fonction de la pression, de la température et avec prise en compte du facteur de compressibilité (appelée « conversion PTZ »).
Le présent document ne s’applique pas à la conversion en fonction de la température intégrée aux compteurs à gaz qui n’affichent que le volume converti.
L’EN 12405 2 s’applique pour la conversion d’énergie.
Les dispositifs de conversion de volume de gaz sont constitués d’un calculateur et d’un transducteur de température, ou bien d’un calculateur, d’un transducteur de température et d’un transducteur de pression installé localement.
Pour l’application du présent document, le fabricant a le choix de considérer un dispositif de conversion en tant qu’instrument complet (Type 1) ou en tant qu’assemblage d’éléments séparés (Type 2), conformément aux définitions données en 3.1.20.1 et 3.1.20.2.
Dans le dernier cas, les données concernant les transducteurs de pression, les capteurs de température et les transducteurs de température sont respectivement fournies aux Annexes B, C et D.
Tout dispositif de conversion peut comporter une correction de la courbe d’erreur du compteur de gaz.
NOTE   Lors de la présentation des relevés à l’utilisateur final, les mesurages issus du dispositif de conversion peuvent être utilisés conjointement avec les mesurages issus d’un compteur de gaz conforme à l’EN 1359, l’EN 12480 ou l’EN 12261 suivant le cas, ou à toute autre norme nationale ou internationale appropriée et applicable aux compteurs de gaz, dans le respect des réglementations nationales.

Plinomeri - Korektorji - 1. del: Volumska korekcija

Ta dokument določa zahteve in preskuse za konstrukcijo, delovanje, varnost ter skladnost elektronskih korektorjev prostornine plina, povezanih s plinomeri, ki se uporabljajo za merjenje prostornine gorivnih plinov iz 1. in 2. skupine v skladu s standardom EN 437.
Ta dokument je namenjen za tipsko preskušanje, katerega podrobne ustrezne določbe so podane v dodatku A.
V tem dokumentu so obravnavane samo tri vrste pretvorbe:
–   pretvorba kot funkcija samo temperature (imenovana T-pretvorba);
–   pretvorba kot funkcija tlaka in temperature s konstantnim kompresijskim faktorjem (imenovana PT-pretvorba);
–   pretvorba kot funkcija tlaka, temperature in ob upoštevanju faktorja kompresije (imenovana PTZ-pretvorba).
Ta dokument ni pomemben za korekcijo temperature, integrirano v plinomere, ki prikazujejo samo pretvorjen volumen.
EN 12405-2 se uporablja za pretvorbo energije.
Naprave za volumsko korekcijo plina so sestavljene iz kalkulatorja in temperaturnega pretvornika ali kalkulatorja, temperaturnega pretvornika in tlačnega pretvornika, ki so nameščeni lokalno.
Za namen uporabe tega dokumenta se lahko korektor, po izbiri proizvajalca, obravnava kot celoten instrument (tip 1) ali izdelan iz ločenih elementov (tip 2), v skladu z opredelitvami v točkah 3.1.18.1 in 3.1.18.2.
V tem zadnjem primeru so določbe glede tlačnih pretvornikov, temperaturnih senzorjev in temperaturnih pretvornikov podane v dodatkih B, C in D.
Vsak korektor omogoča popravek krivulje napake za plinomer.
OPOMBA:   Pri pripravi računa končnemu uporabniku je mogoče odčitke iz korektorja uporabiti v povezavi z odčitki plinomera v skladu s standardi EN 1359, EN 12480 ali EN 12261, kot je primerno, ali s katerim koli drugim ustreznim in veljavnim mednarodnim oz. nacionalnim standardom za plinomere, brez poseganja v nacionalne predpise.
