Usually this value is only indirectly recorded via the pump speed on the control side - but what this has for real effects can not be deduced from this. In order to check the actual water flow, separate measuring instruments are available in the cooling circuit. These also offer the advantage that faults (such as blockages) are detected quickly and reliably.
Aqua computer presents suitable solutions for the aquero 5 series, ie XT, PRO and LT control, which has a particularly low flow resistance and is therefore also suitable for high-flow systems. In addition, the sensor was incorporated into a high-quality housing and therefore convinces with high quality and good optics.
This flow sensor from Aqua Computer meets the requirements of high flow systems with a very low flow resistance. By manufacturing the case made of Delrin and stainless steel, the sensor is also aesthetically convincing and stands out from the mass of often optically inadequate sensors. The symmetrical design with two identical nozzles makes it possible to integrate the sensor into the system without regard to the flow direction.
The connection threads are manufactured in G1 / 4 and thus enable operation with a wide range of hose systems. For mounting the sensor, four M3 threads are integrated in the underside. This flow sensor is integrated into the cooling circuit and enables continuous flow measurement. The sensor delivers reliable measured values from approx. 40 l / h and is thus ideally suited for systems with aquastream pumps.
The USB version of the high flow sensor has integrated evaluation electronics with USB and aquabus interface, configurable alarm output and an external temperature sensor input. For monitoring and configuration, the software aquasuite is available for free download. The four-pin aquabus interface also allows direct connection to an aquaero 5 controller (not included).
The alarm output can optionally be configured as an artificial tacho signal for connection to a fan output with tacho signal evaluation (eg of the mainboard) or as a switching output, for example for switching an LED in the event of an alarm. For alarm monitoring, in addition to the measured flow, the ambient temperature and the external temperature sensor input are also available. The external temperature sensor input is compatible with all temperature sensors offered by Aqua Computer.
