Which flow meter accuracy specification is better:


% of full scale, or % of rate, and why?

Wireless I/O Mesh and Gateway

Elpro's 915U-2 combines multi I/O and/or gateway functionality with the reliability of secure, scalable, mesh distance communications. Featuring ELPRO WIBMesh™ technology, the 915U-2 IP based addressing provides mesh/self healing of network communications, multi-hop repeating and remote over the air re-configuration and diagnostics.

What does this mean?

Basically, the wireless I/O modules data automatically finds its way to the destination module. Should one of the repeater modules in the link fail, the data will automatically search for a new path to its destination.

The model 915U-2 module works with analog signals (current and voltage), discrete I/O, Modbus RTU and Modbus TCP.

Rugged Submersible Level Sensor

PBLT2 Submersible Level Sensor

The PBLT2 Submersible Level Transmitter is manufactured for years of trouble free service even in the harshest applications.  The PBLT2 measures the height of the liquid above its position via a piezoresistive sensing element encased in a very heavy duty 316 SS housing.  This unit is designed specifically for operation in wastewater and slurry applications.  This system is suitable in sludge pits, clarifiers, alum tanks, sumps, lime slurries, oil tanks and reservoirs.  The PBLT2 includes as standard superior lightning and surge protection utilizing dual arrestor technology - eliminating both power supply surges and lightning ground strike transients.  The unit features an extra large 316 SS diaphragm to prevent clogging and is resistant to damage from floating solids and debris.

The unit is equipped with a 270 pound tensile strength, shielded, vented cable. Various cable lengths are available depending on your application. The transmitter is a two wire loop powered (13-30 VDC) design for simple electrical installation.  An intrinsically safe design is available for installations in Class I, Div 1, Groups A, B, C, D; Class II, Div 1, Groups E, F, G; Class III, Div 1 hazardous locations.

Tech Quiz Answer

Answer: % of Rate


% of rate indicates that within the stated flow meter range, the accuracy will always be +/- % of the actual flow rate.  Example: a magmeter accuracy is 0.5% of flow rate, and full scale flow rate of 1,000 gpm.  Thus at 50 gpm (+/- .25 gpm), or 1,000 gpm (+/- 5.0 gpm).


% of Full Scale indicates that within the stated flow range, the accuracy will be +/- % of the flow meters full scale. Example: flowmeter with an accuracy of +/- 0.5 % F.S., and a full scale flow rate of 1,000 gpm. Accuracy will be +/- 5.0 gpm at high and low flows.
