The Flo-tech Quad Series Turbine Flow Sensors are Derived from the FSC Series, utilizing two flow transducers which are 90-degrees electrically out of phase from each other. With the addition of a second flow transducer, it is possible to monitor flow in both directions. The F2000 Quad is suitable for up-down counters that can discern the leading and trailing edges of the quadrature signals.
Current applications include using the F2000 as a speed-sensing device on mobile equipment. This bi-directional flow sensor can be used as a governor, sending frequency signals back to a PLC which enable it to make the necessary adjustments. Other functions of the flow sensor are in linear applications where accurate positioning is required.
