An adaptable area velocity flow meter that can be connected to any data logger or integrate into an established SCADA system.
Installed within the open channel, the sensor simultaneously uses ultrasound waves to measure the velocity of the liquid flow and pressure sensing technology to establish depth.
Pre-configured dimensions of the pipe or channel are used to determine the overall volume of flow.
The Q-Flow interface converts the raw data received from the sensor into recognised languages including MODBUS, SDI12 and frequency outputs are all optional.
The Q-Flow 25 interface can be connected to a data logger or integrated directly into a SCADA System via a PLC, giving the user full control.
Works in rectangular, circular or trapezoidal pipes. Pulse output can be used for flow proportional sampling.
A built-in temperature sensor provides greater accuracy of measurement.
Uses velocity and depth to calculate the overall flow.
Where required, the Q-Flow interface can be connected directly to the customers data management system negating the need for additional data loggers, transmitters and controllers.
