Series SX1 Ultrasonic Flowmeter Detector

Excellent Performance and Easy Operation

Series SX1 Ultrasonic Flowmeter Detectors are paired with Series UXF1 and UXF3 converters in order to utilize the transit-time measuring method. Two ultrasonic sensors are mounted on the pipe exterior, and each transmits an ultrasonic pulse to the opposite sensor. The difference in the transit times of the two waves is used to calculate the flow velocity.

This product is being phased out, see Series PUB or Series PUF for suggested replacements.
