The FDH-1A series has been discontinued. Please contact our Technical Sales department for an alternative.

Doppler technology is used to measure the flow rate of liquids with particulate and/or bubbles suspended in it. Transit time technology is used for clean liquids OMEGA’s FDH-1A Series hybrid ultrasonic flowmeter allows customers to select between doppler and transit time technology with a single instrument. Isolated analog output, frequency output and the ability to data-log to standard SD cards are standard included features. The FDH-1 is programmed via a menu driven QVGA LCD display with a 5 button interface panel. Optional control functions with relay outputs are optional (-R3). The communications option package (-COMM) gives user’s RS232, RS485, USB and Ethernet for interfacing to a PC

Carton Weight: 10.9 kg
Note: For fluid, flow stream, minimum straight pipe and mounting requirements see the FDH-1 operator’s manual

Communications Options Any FDH-1can be equipped with a communications package (-COMM) that includes Ethernet, USB, RS232, and RS485 connections, and proprietar user PC Software. When connected to a PC running the software, the user can access the configuration menu for program editing and data logging downloads directly into a PC. The software user interface mimics the 5-button touch pad so learning to use the software application is simple. Simply clicking on the buttons is the same as pressing the buttons on the FDH-1 touch pad. Pressing and holding shift while clicking on a button simulates pressing and holding a button on the touch pad
Process Control Options Any FDH-1 model can be equipped with a process control relay package (-R3) that includes three independently programmable 10 A relays. Each relay can be configured to respond to changes in either the measured rate of flow or the accumulated total flow value. When assigned to monitor flow rate, high/low/ range rate alarms are possible. When assigned to monitor accumulated total, manual trigger batch operations or automatically triggered, timed batch (proportional feed) operations are possible.
