FloPro Series 3

If you cannot find the part number in the documentation please provide detail. Specific to this item, it could include part number or application detail, (ex. 20 meters of cable, or 20 litres of volume)

The MACE Series 3 FloPro features MACE field proven Doppler velocity and level measurement sensors. Advanced spectrum signal processing allows the FloPro velocity sensors to produce superior results under a wide range of hydraulic operating conditions. Even when the pipe slope is unknown or under full pipe, in surcharge, or reverse flow conditions, the FloPro produces accurate, repeatable results every time. With the new Series 3 FloPro, up to five Doppler flow sensors can be monitored by the same instrument, making flow measurements even more flexible and affordable.

The MACE Series3 FloPro is the total monitoring solution for both water quantity and water quality!

The Series 3 FloPro also comes equipped with a powerful array of standard sensor inputs and outputs, making monitoring of other water quality parameters a simple process. Whether you need to measure flow as well as conductivity, pH and rainfall or simply utilize a downward looking ultrasonic depth sensor, the FloPro is fully expandable to your needs. The MACE Series 3 FloPro can also be fitted with one of several different telemetry interface options, to get your data back in the office when you need it.

Measure water quantity and quality, your total monitoring solution
• Measures flow practically anywhere
• Flexible monitoring and control
• High accuracy with NO moving parts
• Low cost of ownership

Doppler Ultrasonics
MACE Doppler instruments transmit an ultrasonic (sound) wave into the flow. This sound wave is reflected by acoustically reflective particles (e.g. air bubbles, suspended solids) and the instrument detects the reflected frequencies. The difference between the transmitted frequency and the received frequencies is directly proportional to the velocity of the stream flow.

• FloPro Series 3 supports seven sensor inputs and four control outputs per I/O card (standard configuration).
• FloPro Series 3 is expandable to a maximum of four I/O cards.
• Single full-pipe sensor can be used in pipes from 100mm (4") to 2.5 metres (100") in diameter
• Optional combined depth/velocity sensor can be used in open channel or non-full pipe applications
• Weatherproof, polycarbonate case that can be padlocked for added security
• Real time display of flow rate and total flow in user selectable units
• AgriFlo can "look" upstream or downstream
• Dual password interrogation for data access by irrigators and authorities
• Calibration function for use where less than ideal straight pipe lengths are available
• Built-in data logger
• Minimal pipe and flow obstruction
• Easy to install, easy to use and virtually maintenance free
• Accuracy better than 2 %
• Choice of either solar panel or mains powered charger

In full or partially full pipes, the velocity of the stream flow varies markedly across the cross-section of the pipe. Typically, velocity is zero along the wall of the pipe and increases to a maximum at or about the centre of the pipe. MACE Doppler instruments receive reflected frequencies from particles moving at these different velocities. The greater the area of flow moving at a particular velocity, the greater the number of reflections with the respective frequency shift. The average velocity of the stream is therefore calculated by averaging those frequency reflections received across the whole stream profile.
