Vortex Flowsensor Standard (VFS QT)
The VFS is a 2in1 flow and temperature sensor using a 5V stable power supply which generally outputs a ratiometric signal from 0.5-3.5V from Flow min. to Flow max.
It has a composite body and insert which goes inside a stainless steel pipe. Fittings for connecting it, can be provided as well.
Enclosure class is IP44.
Viscosity needs to be lower than 2 CSt (either lower concentration of glycol at room temperatures or higher concentration of glycol at higher temperatures).
The VFS 1-12 QT sensor can go up to 4 cSt viscosity and is therefore recommended in systems where the percentage of glykol is higher than normal.
The Vortex Flowsensor Standard QT comes in 5 ranges:
- VFS 1-12 l/min | 0.2-3.2 gpm
- VFS 1-15 l/min | 0.2-4 gpm
- VFS 2-40 l/min | 0.4-10.7 gpm
- VFS 5-100 l/min | 1.5-26.5 gpm
- VFS 10-200 l/min | 2.6-53 gpm
All VFS sensors also measure temperature from 0-100 degrees Celsius (32 to 212 degrees Fahrenheit).
Burst pressure >16 bar (232 psi).
Models available with threads for different worldwide standards (BSPP, NPSM, etc.)
