IP100/200 Series Impeller Flow Sensors
The IP100/200 series impeller flow sensors are adjustable depth insertion paddle-wheels that come in brass or 316 stainless models to fit 3 to 48 pipe. Installation fittings are standard 1-1/2 (101/201) NPT. Fittings such as saddles and weldolets may be purchased either locally or from AquaMetrix.
Ruby bearings and a non-drag Hall-effect sensor give these meters the widest flow range of any of the paddle-wheel types. A sensor detects the passage of miniature magnets in the six rotor blades. The resulting square-wave signal can be sent for hundreds of feet over unshielded cable without a transmitter and connected directly to many PLCs and other controls without any additional electronics.
