Questions & Answers for the F601

Question – What are the advantages of using the F601?

Answer - The F601 is a dual-channel, dual mode clamp-on liquid ultrasonic flow meter capable of measuring liquid flow through two different pipes from ¼ inch to 256 inch in diameter, at the same time, in either Doppler or Transit Time modes. It is capable of storing 100,000 measurements, and making data available via RS232, analog (4 to 20 mA) and digital (binary) outputs.

Question - What type of pipes will the F601 measure ?

Answer - The F601 is capable of measuring the flow of most liquids through any type of rigid piping or tubing, including all stainless, carbon, Hastelloy, titanium, glass, fiberglass, PVC, PTFE and numerous others.

Question - What size pipes will the F601 measure ?

Answer - The F601 will measure liquid flow through pipes ranging in size from ¼  inch to 256 inches in diameter through 4 different transducer sizes. A single pair of “S” transducers will measure pipes from ¼ inch to 1½ inches in diameter, “Q” transducers will measure pipes from 1” to 16” in diameter; “M” transducers will measure pipes from 4” to 100 inches in diameter and a pair of “K” transducers will measure pipes from 4 inch to 256 inches in diameter.

Question - What are the Min/Max flow rates the F601 can measure ?

Answer – regardless of the Pipe or Transducer size, the F601 will measure flows from 0.4 in/sec to 65 ft/sec in all fluids.

Question - Can the F601 store data ?

Answer – The F601 is capable of storing 100,000 data sets in time stamped data. Various forms of raw and manipulated data can be stored and recovered with the EESiData software application that will accompany every F601.

Question – Can the F601 function as an Energy Meter ?

Answer -  When combined with the optional clamp-on temperature sensors, the F601 is capable of calculating generated or consumed energy in Watts or Jules.

Question - What type of outputs does the F601 have ?

Answer – The F601 is capable of outputting data via RS232 Serial Port, via two analog (4 to 20 mA) ports or two digital (binary) output portss. Each of these outputs can be uniquely configured by the end user to match the current application.

Question - What is included in the F601 Rental Kit ?

Answer – The Rental Kit for the F601 will contain the F601 Flow Computer, a pair of Transducers to match the pipe sizes you indicate in the Rental Agreement Form, a battery charger/wall adapter, acoustic coupling compound, Mounting Chains and Mounting Clips, Instruction Manuals, Quick Start Guides, EESiData software for Windows, communications (RS232) cabling.

Question - What will I need to know before installing the F601 ?

Answer – Before making measurements with the F601 you must know the Outside Diameter and Wall Thickness of the pipe you’re measuring, plus the approximate temperature of the fluid inside. Once you input these values into the F601 it will recommend a transducer mounting separation distance. A few more simple steps and you'll be gathering accurate data.

Question - Can I adjust the 4-20 mA outputs ?

Answer – The 4-20 mA outputs of the F601 can be user adjusted to any range of values you’d like.

Question – Where should I mount the transducers ?

Answer – A three page document shows you the optimal mounting location for securing transducers onto pipes. This document can be downloaded here.

Question – How do I charge the batteries in the F601 ?

Answer – Simply plugging the battery charger into any wall socket and into the top of the F601 will begin the charging process.

Question – How do I setup the 4 to 20 mA output in the F601 ?

Answer – A document detailing the procedures required to setup the 4 to 20 mA current output features of the F601 can be downloaded here.

Question – How do I setup the data logging feature of the F601 ?
