The OMEGA™ FTB600B Series flow meters feature an infrared, electro-optical transmitter and receiver molded into the flow meter’s body, along with two miniature circuit boards to provide voltage stabilization and automatic IR output level control. The FTB600B automatically compensates IR light intensity for varying fluid opacity levels to insure a strong square wave output signal. The flowmeter is suitable for clear, transparent and translucent fluids which must transmit infrared light. (Note: Not suitable for use with red liquids).
The design of the FTB600B inherently bleeds off entrained gas, thereby improving overall accuracy. This flowmeter can be easily mounted into any position for greater system design flexibility, also saving time and installation costs. A strainer is included in models FTB602B through FT606B.

Omega FTB600B Faulty Labelling Added CostI installed this unit according to the proper direction of flow indicated on the label. Along with the integration of the Omega DPF701 display, I spent many hours trying to get the assembly to indicate the proper flow rate. I finally realized that the direction-of-flow label may be affixed incorrectly. I checked the picture in the manual and, sure enough, the label was upside-down. I reversed the flow and the assembly functioned properly. For $600, I expect a better quality product that does not cost me valuable time to implement. Photo attached.

Compact, easy to install and set upThis sensor is relatively small. After calling tech support for some assistance, it was easy to correctly connect it with the meter. The meter was simple and quick to configure, too.
