Paragon Robotics expanded their broad array of measurement capabilities with the addition of a pulse-counter expansion module for the N device series platform. The updated DB14 expansion module is capable of sensing pulse outputs from any type of meter or instrument using Form A or Form C pulse outputs. In addition to pulse-counting capabilities, the DB14 hardware has 4 channels of general digital inputs available for use with 0-5V signals. The new pulse-counter capability is able to sense pulses up to 50Hz (minimum edge width of 10ms) on channel 1 using hardware acceleration to minimize battery usage. It can be used in conjunction with multiple pulse-counter software packages which are able to scale, translate and adjust the output data to perfectly match manual readings or captured data using other equipment. Utilize the DB14 for monitoring gas and water usage (flow meters), digital outputs from industrial or HVAC controllers, and true power with Wattnode meters.
Pulse output is used widely within the metering industry, as it precisely measures totalized or aggregate usage. Traditionally, older meters have used a mechanical switch to provide a "pulse" output from a rotating meter dial. Most modern meters generate the pulse output digitally, however most sensors can read either type of generated pulse. Pulse output is further categorized into "Form A" output utilizing a 2 wire connection, and a "Form C" (also called "KYZ") output using 3 wires. Our DB14 module is compatible with both, however Form C outputs will only need to connect 2 of the wires to the DB14.

Paragon Robotics, a leading engineering solutions provider, is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a prestigious contract by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to design and build a groundbreaking Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) test system. This system, developed in collaboration with a Virginia-based robotics company, addresses the critical need identified by the National Institute for Occupational Safety & Health (NIOSH) for an industry-standardized validation test for PPE.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) plays a pivotal role in safeguarding healthcare personnel (HCP) from potential contamination during interactions with patients. Particularly in critical trauma care scenarios, the breach of PPE can expose Health Care Professionals (HCPs) to life-threatening infectious diseases. Recognizing this, NIOSH emphasized the necessity for an industry-standardized validation test to ensure the effectiveness of PPE and contribute to the development of new, advanced protective gear.
