Flow Rate Sensor
Recommended for College and High School. Interface and software sold separately.
The Flow Rate Sensor measures the velocity of water in studying the discharge, flow patterns, and sediment transport of a stream or river.
The Flow Rate Sensor can be used for environmental or Earth science studies. Flow rate data can be used to calculate the discharge value for a stream or determine the sediment transport of a stream. The Flow Rate Sensor includes 3 riser rods, which enable the impeller to be placed at fixed depths, and is equipped with a 5 m cable so your data-collection equipment can stay on shore. The Flow Rate Sensor also separates into four sections for easy transport and convenient storage.
- Range: 0 to 4.0 m/s (0 to 13 ft/s)
- Accuracy: ±1% of full-scale reading
- Resolution: 0.0012 m/s
(LabQuest 2, LabQuest, LabQuest Mini, Go!Link, LabPro)
