The Water Flow Sensor consists of a plastic valve body, a water rotor and a Hall Effect Sensor. When the water flows through the rotor, rotor rolls and the speed of it changes with a different rate of flow. The hall-effect sensor outputs the corresponding pulse signal.
This type of sensor can be found on different diameters, water pressure (MPa) and flow rate (L/m) ranges. Make sure to select one that will cover your needs. The sensor that I have it has 20mm diameter, <1.75Mpa water pressure and ~30 L/m flow rate range.
A Water Flow Meter Sensor is a device that measures the amount of water flowing through a pipe. There are several water flow meter technologies to choose from depending on the water measurement application, maintenance requirements, and budgetary terms. Each of these types of water flow meters has a unique principle of operation, specific application benefits, and overall cost-of-ownership. The question is: What water flow meter should you choose for your water flow measurement application? There are four primary types of water flow meters: mechanical water flow meters, vortex volumetric flow meters, ultrasonic flow meters or magnetic flow meters.
