ProSense Thermal Flow Sensors from AutomationDirect
ProSense® FTS series thermal flow sensors offer a very cost-effective solution for monitoring water, glycol solutions, or air flow for applications where high accuracy is not required. With no moving parts, thermal flow sensors are a reliable alternative to mechanical flow switches and other flow sensing technologies.
Using the 4-digit, two color alphanumeric display with pushbutton setup, the FTS series can be easily configured to measure flow velocity in feet per second (fps), or by entering the internal pipe diameter, volumetric flow rate can be measured in gallons per minute (gpm) or cubic feet per minute (cfm). Available with probe lengths of either 100 mm or 200 mm, FTS series sensors can be used in pipes up to 16 inches in internal diameter.
The FTS-1001 series offers two separate outputs that can be used either as a flow or temperature limit switch or to monitor continuous flow rate or temperature. The FTS-1002 series offers two separate analog outputs that can be used monitor continuous flow rate and temperature.
FTS series flow sensors start at $235 and have a 5-year warranty.
