The Sondar5000 is a high-end ultrasonic flow & level measurement system which provides non-contact flow measurement of various weirs and flumes. It measures water level, calculates flow and displays accurate instant/total flow rate, based on the principle that the water level is specifically related to flow rate in the standardized flumes and weirs.
With a built-in data logging system, the Sondar5000 enables the user to save data (level, flow rate, total flow, etc) for a maximum period of 6 months. The relays and analogue outputs may be preset or programmed to activate alarms and operate remote monitoring equipment and process control equipment.
