MainLine™ Electronic Drive
The Sparling FM-104/184 MainLine™ electronic propeller flow meter features fewer moving parts and a rugged Sparling design for longer life and reduced maintenance costs.'
The battery powered electronic rate/totalizer, senses the propeller rotation via a magnetic pickup sensor located in the gearbox and translates these pulses to rate and total flow. The electronics within the FM-104/184 MainLine™ electronic flow meter are completely isolated from the flow stream in a NEMA-4X enclosure. A photoelectric cell activates the display when the cover is opened. The display goes into “sleep mode” when the cover is closed. The lithium battery is rated for 8 years.
All meter parameters are held in non-volatile EEPROM memory. Full scale, span, K, engineering units, dampening parameters can be modified to suit your changing needs in the field with an optional programming unit.
The Sparling FM-104/184 MainLine™ Electronic Propeller Flow Meter is available with optional 4-20 mA and pulse output when the totalizer is connected to an outside power source. It is available with integral or remote totalization at a distance of up to 50 feet. Available in sizes from 2″ to 72″, accuracy is +/-0.5% of rate.
