Solar Powered Ultrasonic Flow Meters

Solar Powered Ultrasonic Flow Meter An off-grid solar power system allows you to install and operate ultrasonic flow meters in locations where a traditional 120VAC wired power source may be impractical, expensive or not available. Solar power systems can be the perfect solution for saving money powering flow measurement equipment in remote locations.

A solar powered ultrasonic flow meter is a type of flow meter that measures the velocity of a fluid with ultrasound to calculate volume flow. Using ultrasonic transducers, the solar powered flow meter can measure the average velocity along the path of an emitted beam of ultrasound, by averaging the difference in measured transit time between the pulses of ultrasound propagating into and against the direction of the flow or by measuring the frequency shift from the Doppler effect. Solar powered ultrasonic flow meters are affected by the acoustic properties of the fluid and can be impacted by temperature, density, viscosity and suspended particulates depending on the exact flow meter.

Solar Powered Ultrasonic Flow Meter System

A solar power system for ultrasonic flow meter applications consists of a solar module, a solar charge controller, a rechargeable solar deep-cycle battery, power converter, regulator or inverter and a weather-proof outdoor enclosure. This system is used to collect solar energy and the store electrical power, and then convert the stored power into the correct voltage to operate the ultrasonic flow meter.

What Size Solar Power System For Ultrasonic Flow Meters?

Solar Flow Meter To select the correct size solar power system to power an ultrasonic flow meter there are a few things that must be known.

1. What is operating voltage and power consumption in amps, or watts of the ultrasonic flow meter?

2. How many hours each day will the ultrasonic flow meter be required to operate.

3. What is the geographical location the solar powered flow meter will be installed.

4. How many days of battery reserve power are desired for "no sun" days?
