The FTB300 Series of digital paddle wheels
are an economical choice for low flow rate
applications. They use Infra-red light beam
technology. Available connections include
1/8 FNPT, 1/4 FNPT and 3/8" OD tube fittings. Six
available flow ranges as low as 30ml/min to
7000 ml/min. No display models have a 5 Vdc current
sinking pulse output. Units with displays have a 6-digit
LCD, with up to 4 decimal positions that display both
flow rate and total. All units include an open collector
User selectable scale factors include: flow units,
gallons, liters, ounces, and milliliters. Time units
include: minutes, hours, days. Users can also
program custom units. Programming values and total
are stored in the non-volitile memory. The total reset
function can also be disabled. Standard units have a
clear PVC viewing lens, PVDF chemical resistant lens
are available as an option. The enclosure is a weather
resistant Valox PBT and rated NEMA 4X (IP56).
