A water flow sensor is a plastic valve body with rotor that provides a hall-effect sensing when water flows through the motor. The motor will roll and the speed will change on a different rate flow. The hall-effect sensor will read the corresponding voltage pulse signal and send the signal to the micro controller and provide liquid flow rate as data.


How it works?


As liquid passes through the valve and the magnetic rotor spins at a rate proportional to flow, a series of magnetic field to stimulate the hall effect sensor and producing a series of voltage pulses. The output voltage pulses are the same voltage level as the input with a frequency proportional flow rate. The output signal can be digital rate totalizes or other electronic controller.
