Question
What are the specifications of the Flo-Tote 3 sensor?
Summary
Flo-Tote 3 sensor specifications.
Answer
VELOCITY MEASUREMENT
Method: Electromagnetic (Faraday’s law)
Range: -1.5 to 6.1 m/s (-5 to +20 ft/s)
Accuracy: ±2% of reading
Zero Stability: .015 m/s (±0.05 ft/s) at 0 to 3 m/s (0 to 10 ft/s)
Resolution: .0003 m/s (0.01 ft/s)
 
DEPTH MEASUREMENT
Method: Submerged pressure transducer
Standard Operating Range: 10 mm to 3.5 m (0.4 to 138 in.)
Accuracy: ±1% of reading
Zero Stability: ±0.009 m (±0.03 ft.), for 0 to 3 m (0 to 10 ft.)
Includes non-linearity, hysteresis and velocity effects.
Resolution: 2.5 mm (0.1 in.)
Over Range Protection: 2X range
 
FLOW MEASUREMENT:
Method: Conversion of water depth and pipe size to fluid area.
Conversion of local velocity reading to mean velocity.
Multiplication of fluid area by mean velocity to equal flow rate.
Conversion Accuracy: ±5.0% of reading.
Assumes appropriate site calibration coefficient, pipe flowing 10% to 90% full with a level greater
than 5.08 cm (2 in.).

TEMPERATURE MEASUREMENT:
Method: 1 wire digital thermometer
Range: –10 to 85°C (14 to 185°F)
Accuracy: ±2°C (±3.5°F).
