Designed for long-term water billing applications, the FTB4600 series of flowmeters are highly accurate and feature a high frequency pulse output suitable for remote flowrate indication or flow totalization. For economy, they have no local indication of the flowrate or total. The pulse output is compatible with OMEGA’s DPF400 and DPF700 series ratemeter/totalizers. All meters include built-in strainers, locking nuts, gaskets, coupling pieces, and 1.5 m (5') of 3-conductor copper wire.
SPECIFICATIONS Accuracy: ≥10% of cont. to max. flow: ±1.5% of rate <10% of continuous flow: 2% of rate Fluid Temperature Range: 0 to 88°C (32 to 190°F) Wetted Parts: Nickle Plated Brass body, stainless steel, polyimide (fiberglass), polypropylene, EPDM O-ring Pressure Drop (at cont. flow rate): 2.9 psid Max. Pressure: 150 psig Pulse Output: Requires 6 to 16 Vdc @ 10 mA max. power; output requires pull-up to positive dc voltage. Includes 1.5 m (5') of cable. Duty Cycle: 50-50

Reliable, usuallyI've used these meters for years with generally good results. However, in the last year I have had to return two of them because the solid-state pulse module was bad; one after 2 weeks and one right out of the box. The pulse module snaps off the meter easily, but unfortunately Omega does not sell the module separately so you have to replace the whole meter.

Bad SensorAbout 30% failure rate with quality decreasing every time I purchase. My suggestion is to buy extra or find an alternative. The problem is the sensor. The rest of the flow meter is solid. Having an affordable replenishment cap (sensor housing) would be great.
