VFS Series Vortex Flow Sensors from AutomationDirect

November 5, 2019

ProSense VFS series vortex flow sensors offer a very cost-effective solution optimized for monitoring water and deionized water flow in industrial applications. Vortex flow sensors are a reliable alternative to other flow sensing technologies and are a simple, low cost, and proven method for measuring flow of water-based liquids that is independent of the liquid’s pressure or temperature fluctuations.

Using the pushbuttons and display, the VFS series can be easily set up to measure both flow rate and temperature. The VFS series is available with 1/2″ or 3/4″ NPT process connections. The VFS (-1001) series offers two separate outputs that can be used either as a flow or temperature limit switch or to monitor continuous flow rate or temperature. The VFS (-1002) series offers two analog flow/temperature monitoring outputs.

The TFT color display and switch point LEDs are used during configuration and operation to provide clear indication of both flow and temperature measured variables simultaneously.

ProSense VFS series vortex flow sensors from AutomationDirect start at $199.00 and are backed by a five-year warranty.
