Sight Flow Indicator/Transmitter
Low Cost, Optional Output for Flow Rate and Totalization, UV Stabilized Polycarbonate Model

Low Cost, Optional Output for Flow Rate and Totalization, UV Stabilized Polycarbonate Model

The SERIES SFI-800 Sight Flow Indicators & Transmitters are a low cost, durable rotor style flow indicator with optional Hall Effect magnetic output packages to combine visual confirmation of flow with optional remote flow monitoring. There are three output sensors available, the A-711 offering two pulsed voltage signals proportional to flow rate, the A-712 which outputs a linear 1 to 10 VDC signal proportional to flow rate, and the A-713 which offers two programmable open collector switch outputs.
The Model A-711 is a unique and patent pending sensor that outputs two pulsed voltage signals with one providing a 5 VDC pulse and the other a pulse of the input supply voltage used, ranging from 8 to 18 VDC.
The Model A-712 is a sensor that outputs a linear 1 to 10 VDC signal proportional to flow rate.
The Model A-713 is a sensor with two programmable open collector switch outputs with one output closed above the set point and the other output closed below the set point ideal for low flow or high flow indication.
