Water Flow Sensor from Emerson Climate Technologies enables direct cooling capacity measurement

Emerson water flow sensorTherm-O-Disc, Inc., a business of Emerson Electric Co., announced a new offering that enhances the comprehension and control of water chiller systems. Emerson’s Water Flow Sensor, model number 80FS, allows cooling units to measure and communicate system capacity by continually monitoring both temperature and flow velocity of water.

The Water Flow Sensor utilizes technology that enables consistent measurement close to elbows, as near as three pipe diameters. This allows compact system design and provides high confidence with in-flow disturbances. The electronic design offers ModBus communication to control set points and enhance diagnostics capability.
