Paddlewheel flow sensor

October 1, 2008




Omega’s FPB100 paddlewheel flow sensor has various output options, including flow switch, multi-functional pulse divider and a 4 to 20mA signal; it has an input frequency range of 1 to 1,000Hz. Polypropylene models have a titanium rotor pin and black PVDF rotor. PVDF models have a PVDF rotor pin and a rotor of natural PVDF material. All models offer a built-in user interface that can be used to configure low-flow, low-power and high-resolution options. CE-compliant, the sensor can be used for water and wastewater monitoring and scrubber control.
