Flow rate measurement

Postby birkettjs » Tue Nov 02, 2004 11:57 am

I'd like to be able to add flow rate measurement to my existing EL005 datalogger. Could anyone please suggest what sensors and converters I'd need to achieve this. I need to measure flow rates in the range of 2 to 20 litres per minute.

Hi,

Thank you for your request.

A possible solution would be to use a frequency to voltage converter, with the EL037, as most flow meters us frequency to give the flow rate.

However, the Enviormon System records a sample every minute so it probably, would not be suitable for fast changes is flow, but rather a steady flow.

You will need to source the frequency to voltage converter yourself, but these distributors may have something.
