Pulse tester

Before connecting the flukso to meters with pulse outputs, we use a Pulse Tester (image attached) to test that the meter and reed switch are delivering pulses.

The pulse tester was made from a calculator, and we attach it to the reed switch coming out of the meter. We keep track of the total pulse count on the Pulse Tester's display and compare with before and after meter readings to verify the pulse rate and meter/reed switch functionality.
