1. Multichannel metering system for metering preselected fluid flows, comprising:

  • a plurality of individual fluid flow sources;

    a plurality of discharge lines, each line of said discharge lines being connected to a corresponding one of said fluid flow sources;

    adjusting means associated with said fluid flow sources for acting on said fluid flow sources to influence fluid flow of said fluid flow sources;

    programmable control means coupled with said adjusting means for controlling said adjusting means, said programmable control means having data fields describing metering properties of individual fluid flows;

    an operating surface connected to said control means;

    data input means for input of data into said control means, said data input means being at least partially connected to said operating surface;

    data output means for output of data from said control means, said data output means being connected to said operating surface;

    selector switch means forming a part of said data input means, said selector switch means including a plurality of selector switches, each selector switch being associated with a set of said fluid flow sources for representing segments of data fields belonging to a corresponding set of fluid flow sources on said operating surface, said each selector switch functionally connecting said data input means with said data fields belonging to said associated set of fluid flow sources.
