Pulsar Process Measurement has launched MicroFlow, a microwave based non-contacting velocity sensor that mounts simply above a channel to provide maintenance-free, reliable, repeatable and accurate velocity measurement.
For flow volume measurement, velocity x area provides a cost-effective alternative to a channel restriction such as a flume, and a viable solution in situations where system hydraulics do not permit the installation of any primary measurement device.
Pulsar's MicroFlow offers cost-effective, low maintenance velocity and flow measurement.
MicroFlow can be used as a stand-alone device, outputting velocity data via RS485 Modbus with a measurement accuracy of ±0.033m/s or 0.5%. The industry-standard data can be used for datalogging or alarm purposes, or processed further in a PLC. MicroFlow can also integrate with Pulsar’s FlowCERT ultrasonic flow measurement controller and a transducer such as Pulsar’s flow-dedicated dBMACH3 to create a complete open channel flow measurement system.
MicroFlow is simply installed on a bracket above the flow at a 45º angle. Loop power and straightforward RS485 PC set up allows for a quick and simple connection.
