Standard Pulse Outputs vs KYZ Pulse Outputs

Question #

What’s the difference between a standard pulse output and a KYZ pulse?

Answer #

Imagine a standard pulse as a light switch.  On/Off.  The light switch is turned On [pulse]. The light switch is turned Off [no pulse].  A pulse collector connects to these standard pulse outputs with only one port. 

A KYZ pulse is like a see-saw.  On/Off | Off/On.  The left side hits the ground and becomes On [pulse].  It then comes Off the ground [no pulse] while the right side hits the ground and becomes On [pulse].  With a KYZ pulse, a pulse collector needs to either:

  • have two ports to connect both pulse outputs
  • connect one port to one pulse output of the KYZ generator and have that reading doubled, or multiplied by 2.
