Flow X3 Flow Monitoring
flow x3 flow monitoring
The FlowX3 System includes a complete range of paddle
wheel flow sensors, instruments and sensor installation
fittings. Also included are insertion type electromagnetic
flow transmitters. FlowX3 products provide high quality
and state-of-the-art technology. All products are
manufactured under ISO 9001:2000 and conform to the
highest CE standrds.
High Accuracy
± 0.75% of full scale with standard K factor
± 1% of reading value with field calibration
Excellent Low Flow Measurement
Accurately measures flow velocities down to 0.15m/s
(0.5ft./sec.)
Instruments
New design - More Outputs
Flow X3 instruments are supplied standard with a large
offering of control outputs, including 4 to 20mA, open
collector (pulse) and relay outputs. All have 3 line LCD
displays and LED status indication for the control outputs.
Modular Design - 1/4 DIN Size
Only with Flow X3 can the same instrument be mounted in
3 different ways: directly to the flow sensor, or remotely in
a panel or wall mounted.
Large Flow Velocity Range
The frequency output is linearly proportional to flow rate
from 0.15 to 8 m/s (0.5 to 25 ft./sec.).
Approximately 45 Hz/m/s.
Easily Installed into all types and sizes of piping
Sensor installation fittings are available in a large selection
of types, materials and pipe sizes up to 24”/630mm.

Sensors
Designed for Corrosive and “Dirty” Services
Flow X3 paddle wheel flow meters are of corrosion
resistant solid plastic construction. They are recommended
for services with up to 10% solids*. Bearings and sensor
body near the rotor are designed to be self-cleaning and
small magnets in the rotor blade lessen the chance of
fouling due to accumulation of magnetic particules in the
process.
Low Cost Blind Transmitters Available
Blind Transmitters are available with module directly
mounted to the flow sensor. These are less expensive than
the standard direct mount instrument/sensor packages.
Submersible Sensors Available
NEMA 6, 6P (IP68) models are available for outdoor or
submersible installations.

type F3.00 and F3.01 flow sensors
The Type F3.00/F3.01 Paddle Wheel Flow Sensors are
designed for use with solid-free liquids. A square wave
output signal is generated with frequency proportional to
rate of rotor rotation and flow velocity. This pulse output is
normally fed to a FlowX3 flow monitor/transmitter, blind
transmitter, batch controller or adjustable flow switch. For
simple flow indication the output can be fed directly to a
computer.
Two types of sensors are available, Hall Effect which
requires a 5 to 24 VDC power supply and Coil Effect which
operates with less power, 3 to 5 VDC. Coil is required with
the battery powered flow monitor. Hall Effect signals may
be transmitted up to 300m without the need for
conditioning whereas Coil Effect signals may be
transmitted up to 16m without conditioning.

● The flow sensor is available with Hall effect transducer
(standard) and Coil effect transducer (battery operated)
● The Hall sensor operates with a power supply from
5 to 24 VDC @ <30 mA
● The Coil sensor operates with a power supply from
3 to 5 VDC @ <10 µA
● The standard output is a square wave with a frequency
of 45 Hz per m/s (13.7 Hz per ft/s) nominal
● The output signal is provided directly via electric cable
or via a cable plug according to DIN 43650-B/ISO 6952.
Supplied cable is standard 8m (26.4 ft) long, with a
maximum length of 300 m (990 ft) for Hall sensor and
16 m (52.8 ft) for Coil sensor
● In the versions with 4-20 mA or MIN alarm output, an
additional IP65 housing is plugged onto the sensor.
Output signals are available on a terminal strip inside
via a PG11 cable gland.
● The sensor F3.30 with 4-20 mA output and the sensor
F3.15 with MIN alarm output require a power supply
from 12 to 24 VDC.
● The nominal measuring range is from 0.15 to 8 m/s
(0.5 to 25 ft/s).

Hall Effect flow sensors. The instruments supply voltage to
the flow sensor. All units are supplied standard with a large
offering of control outputs, including 4 to 20mA, open
collector (pulse) and relay outputs. All have 3 line LCD
displays and LED status indication for the control outputs.
