This flow rate sensor can be integrated into the cooling loop and permits continous flow monitoring. The sensor can be connected to an aquaero 4.00 fan controller or the pump controller poweradjust USB via a separately available connection cable.
This new version with a 5.6mm diameter greatly reduces the flow resistance compared to the previous version with a 3.3mm inner diameter whilst the precision of the sensor remains virtually unaffected.
Please note the different calibration values of the different nozzle diameters:
Nozzle diameter 5,6 mm: 256 impulses per liter
Nozzle diameter 3,3 mm: 509 impulses per liter
The nozzle diameter is documented on the type label of the sensor.
Compatibility list (amongst others):
aquaero 4.00 USB fan controller in all display versions
aquaero LT 4.00 USB fan controller
aquaero 3.07 USB fan controller in all display versions
aquaero LT 3.07 USB fan controller
poweradjust USB Version LT
Extent of delivery:
One flow rate sensor
Connection thread G 1/4, fittings not included!
For monitoring of the data additonal components (see compatibility list) as well as a suitable connection cable (Item No. 71044) is needed, both are not included!
Note regarding sensor compatibility:
Flow rate sensors are only suitable for connection to a compatible controller and can NOT be connected directly to e.g. the fan socket on a Mainboard or fan controller, as the impulses from the sensor are no enough to work with a fan channel. The only possibility is the use of the Pulsmatik (Item No. 71000) which can be connected between the sensor and e.g. the Mainboard. We do not recommend this solution though, as it is not very practical or cost efficient. We recommend ordering a compatible fan controller when wanting to use a flow rate sensor.
