Unidata Starflow - Unidata 6526
A compact, easy to use system for measuring water flow in rivers, channels and pipes. It is also a cost effective way to measure water velocity, depth and derived flow in a wide range of water qualities ranging from sewerage and waste water to clean streams, potable water, and even sea water. Unidata Starflow - Unidata 6526 are designed to be placed at (or near) the bottom of the water channel for upstream measurement.
Details- Measures forward and reverse flows and may be programmed to compute flow rate and total flow in pipes and open channels.
- A single cable connects the instrument to a 12V DC power source.
- Water velocity is measured by the ultrasonic Doppler principle which relies on suspended particles or small air bubbles in the water to reflect the ultrasonic detector signal.
- Will not operate in very clean, degassed water.
- Water depth is gauged by a hydrostatic pressure sensor, referenced to atmospheric pressure through the vented power and signal cable.
