Analog Output Sensor Cable for 0-10 V Voltage Output
SCC1-Analog
Configurable analog voltage output of the flow
rate measurement
Switch output with configurable threshold
Volume integration by counting pulses
Applicable to digital SLQ, SLI, SLS and SLG
liquid flow meters
Product Summary
The Analog Sensor Cable SCC1-Analog allows simple and quick readout of Sensirion’s liquid flow meters by
converting the digital sensor reading into an analog voltage output, configurable to any range within 0-10 V.
Additionally, a digital (high/low) open drain output with two modes of operation is available (Flow Switch / Volume
Counter).
In Flow Switch mode, the output is high or low depending on the momentary flow rate and two configurable
threshold values.
In Volume Counter mode, a voltage pulse is generated every time a defined volume has flown through the flow
meter.

1 Modes of Operation
The SCC1-Analog sensor cable provides analog 0-10 V voltage output for Sensirion’s Liquid Flow meters of the SLG,
SLI, SLS and digital SLQ series. The cable’s internal electronics read the I2C output of the sensor and converts it to the
analog voltage signal and an optional digital open drain output.
The SCC1-Analog sensor cable is marked with a red sleeve next to the M8 sensor connector and with an imprint
0-10V 24V/xxxx on the cable, where xxxx denotes a lot code.
The cable is available in two variants with a total length of 2 meters or 10 meters, respectively.
1.1 Analog Voltage Output (Vout)
The voltage output provides a voltage which corresponds to the measured flow rate. The flow rate is linearly mapped to
the voltage across a user-specified range, see Figure 1, and can be calculated by the following formula:
       
   
The parameters Vmax, Vmin, FlowatVmax and FlowatVmin can be configured by the user (see section 1.4 Configuration).
They can be freely chosen in the range of the sensor’s specifications.
By default, the SCC1-Analog sensor cable is set with 5 V output at no-flow, 0 V for negative maximum flow (sensor
output limit), and 10 V for positive maximum flow (sensor output limit). The default calibration field accessed by
SCC1-Analog can also be configured.
The sensor cable output voltage is capped at the voltage output limits VhighLimit and VlowLimit. By default, VhighLimit is set to
10.5 V and VlowLimit is set to 0 V. See Figure 1 below for an illustration of the different parameters.
Figure 1: Scaling of the analog voltage output and definition of parameters.
Example:
The SLS-1500 has a maximum flow range (output limits) of +/-65 ml/min. If the whole flow range is to be covered by the
analog voltage output, the parameters FlowatVmin and FlowatVmax are set to -65 ml/min and +65 ml/min, respectively, with
Vmax being 10 V and Vmin being 0 V. (this is the default setting for this sensor). A measured voltage of 6.5 V at the
voltage output is then converted to the actual flow rate as follows:

www.sensirion.com Version 5.0 October 2017 4/12
1.2 Digital Open Drain Output
The digital output has only two logic states, high and low. Since the digital output is realized as an open drain (open
collector) circuit, a pull-up resistor has to be connected between digital output and an external voltage Vhigh, which serves
as the high-level voltage (see block diagram in Figure 6). The value of this high-level voltage may be chosen
independently or identical to the supply voltage in order to match the logic levels of the system.
The different modes of operation for the digital output are described below. By default, the digital output is disabled, i. e.
it is always low.
The mode of operation is configured using the configuration software. (See section 1.4 Configuration).
Flow Switch
In this mode, the digital output is low when the measured flow is outside a specified flow range, and high when inside.
This flow range is specified by two threshold values. Additionally, a hysteresis may be specified for each threshold value
(see Figure 2).
Figure 2: Flow Switch thresholds and definition of parameters.
When the flow switch mode is first enabled in the configurator, a lower threshold at 25% of the sensor’s maximum flow
rate with a hysteresis of +-5% of the set point is suggested and the upper threshold is set above the maximum flow rate.
Setting the upper threshold above the maximum flow rate is equivalent to disabling the upper threshold altogether.
Volume Counter
In this mode, the SCC1-Analog cable’s internal electronics calculates the accumulated volume based on the flow rate
and every time a defined volume flows through the meter, a pulse is generated on the digital output. The total amount of
liquid which has flown through the meter can be determined by simply counting the pulses and multiplying by the defined
volume.
The liquid volume per output pulse and the duration of the output pulse can be configured.
The volume counter can be configured to ignore negative flow rates (flow in backward direction). If negative flow rates
are not ignored, these are subtracted from the internally calculated volume. In this case, no output pulses are generated
until the internal totalizer has again reached a positive value.
In order to reset the internal totalizer, the SCC1-Analog cable should be switched off for 1000 ms by interrupting the
supply voltage.
When the Volume Counter is first enabled in the configurator, the suggested setting generates 0.5 ms long output pulses
with a frequency of approx. 250 Hz at the maximum flow rate of the attached sensor.

1.3 Output Filter (for lot codes 1448 and higher)
Sensirion Liquid Flow sensors have a very fast response time and therefore react very quickly to changes in the flow
rate. In some application a low-pass filtering of the sensor output may be desired e.g. to ignore short excursions of the
flow rate above or below the switch thresholds. For this purpose, a moving average filter is available in the SCC1-Analog
sensor cable. The filter is realized as moving average with a configurable time constant (2 milliseconds to 1 minute). The
moving average can be applied to the analog voltage output, to the digital open drain output signal, to both outputs or to
none of them. Figure 3, Figure 4, and Figure 5 show some examples of possible combinations and the resulting outputs
on an oscillating flow rate with some interruptions of the flow. Such noisy flow rates are typical for certain pump types.
The filter time constant and signal selection (filtered/unfiltered) for each output may be configured using the configuration
software. (See section 1.4 Configuration).
Example 1:
Filtered signal for the analog voltage output, unfiltered signal for the digital (switch) output.
Figure 3: Cable output with moving average filter on flow rate (green solid line) and switch output on unfiltered flow rate (green dashed line). The
black line shows the underlying unfiltered flow rate.
Example 2:
Filtered signal for both, analog voltage output and digital (switch output). Note the difference in the switching behavior
between Figure 3 and Figure 4: In Figure 3 (unfiltered signal) the switch output follows the short dips in the flow rate
immediately. In contrast, the switch output on the filtered signal (in Figure 4) is tolerant to such short excursions below
the switch level.
Figure 4: Cable output with moving average filter on flow rate (green solid line) and switch output on filtered flow rate (green dashed line). The
black line shows the underlying unfiltered flow rate.

Example 3:
Unfiltered signal for the analog voltage output, filtered signal for the digital (switch) output. The analog voltage output
follows the flow rate immediately, including the high-frequency oscillations of the pump and the short drops in the flow
rate. On the other hand, the switch output on the filtered signal is tolerant to these short excursions below the switch
threshold.
Figure 5: Cable output with unfiltered flow rate (green solid line) and switch output on filtered flow rate (green dashed line). The black dashed line
shows the underlying filtered flow rate.
1.4 Configuration
The output configuration settings for the SCC1-Analog sensor cable are stored in the memory of the flow meter, not in
the SCC1-Analog sensor cable. The configuration is written to the flow meter’s memory using an SCC1-USB sensor
cable and the configurator software which is available on the Sensirion webpage. Once the flow meter is configured,
any SCC1-Analog cable can be connected to the flow meter. The internal electronics in the cable will then read the
settings from the flow meter’s memory and start operation on power-up.
The necessary steps are summarized below:
1) Connect the flow meter to a PC using the SCC1-USB sensor cable.
2) Open the Analog Sensor Cable Configurator software. Write your settings. Note that the same configurator
software is also used for the SCC1-Current 0-20 mA current output cable.
3) Disconnect the flow meter from the SCC1-USB sensor cable and reconnect with the SCC1-Analog sensor cable.
The SCC1-Analog sensor cable will now read the output configuration from the flow meter and continuously
update the output as soon as it is powered up.
1.5 Parameter Versions and Backwards Compatibility
Some parameters and features have been added since the introduction of the SCC1-Analog sensor cable. If the
corresponding settings are present on a given sensor, these are ignored by old cables. If these settings are not
programmed on a given sensor, a new cable will override the missing setting by the corresponding default value.

2.4 Connection Diagram
A load resistor Rload should be placed between the voltage output (Vout) and GND. Typically, this load resistor is
already incorporated into the voltage readout device. The load resistor (or input impedance) of the voltage
measurement input must be at least 1 kOhm, while 10 kOhm or larger is typical.
The voltage of the digital output (VDOut) should be measured with respect to GND, as indicated in the connection
diagram of Figure 6. Make sure that the ground of the power supply is connected to the reference voltage of the
readout device.
In order to use the digital open drain output, the Dout wire needs to be connected to the high voltage Vhigh by an
external pull-up resistor Rpull-up. The value of the pull-up resistor has to be chosen in accordance with the input
characteristics of the readout device. For a high-resistance device such as a volt meter a 10 kOhm pull-up resistor is
typically suitable. On some programmable logic controllers (PLCs) the digital inputs may have a low input resistance
and in such a case e.g. a 2.2 kOhm pull-up resistor should be used.
Figure 6: Internal block diagram of the SCC1-Analog Sensor Cable and measurement setup.
2.5 Notes on Operation
The cable is in general not short-circuit proof and does not have inverse polarity protection. Incorrectly connecting the
cable may therefore cause damage to the cable.
Strong electrical interference on the short distance between the flow meter and the cable electronics may disturb the
digital communication between the cable and the sensor. Such interference should therefore be avoided.
