ChannelFlo™ UOCM, Flocorp-Ultrasonic Open Channel Flow Meter

ChannelFlo™ UOCM Ultrasonic Open Channel Flow Meter
ChannelFlo™ UOCM Ultrasonic Open Channel Flow Meter

The ChannelFlo™ Ultrasonic Open Channel Flow Meter is an all-in-one solution for open channel flow measurement. The UOCM can provide accurate measurements in a wide variety of applications such as small streams, sewers, large rivers, V-notch weirs, and flumes. Our technology allows precision continuous measurement that allows the user to monitor remotely at the convenience of a PC or locally at the display. All of our ChannelFlo™ systems are calibrated for your specific application before leaving our factory for easy setup and installation in the field. In an Open Channel application, it is very important to have a quality, durable, and accurate level measurement sensor. Our Ranger Plus™ Ultrasonic Level Transmitter measures up to 35 feet, has (3) Analog Outputs, and (2) Switches. The next component in the UOCM system is an intuitive, reliable monitoring device. Our DigaCom 2000™ Universal Process Monitor is a bright, 6-digit LED display with an internal DC power supply for transmitter power, 4-20 mA repeat output, and advanced communications. The DigaCom 2000™ is supplied with a remote monitoring software called DigaLink 3.0, which can remotely monitor, receive e-mail alerts, data log, and much more. If you
require a pump to control the eXmod™ Relay Expansion module is recommended. The eXmod connects to the DigaCom 2000 via RS-485 serial communication (4-wire) and provides a 10 AMP AC/DC rated relay to maximize the system’s capabilities.
