Flow Rate Sensor
Robust design and accurate flow sensing
This paddle wheel style sensor is suitable for a wide range of liquid flow measurement, monitoring and batching applications. With only one moving part and limited intrusion into the pipe combined with its flow-through design, the flow meter allows accurate measurement of liquid flows with virtually no head losses. Each of the 4 blades of the rotor (paddlewheel) extends approximately one centimetre into the flowing liquid. The sensor generates a square wave pulse with the frequency output proportional to flow velocity and proportional to pipe diameter. The sensor is specially constructed with a metal shielding jacket making it immune to electrical interference. Typically used to measure water flow volume during pumping.
