Global Water FL16U Water Flow Logger

Battery-Powered Open Channel Flow Logging

Brand: Global Water | Part #: FL16U | Item #: ID510

The FL16U Water Flow Logger is ideal for partially filled stormwater or sewer pipes, flumes, weirs, inflow and infiltration, stream and river gauging, or many other open channel applications.

  • No confined space entry required for sensor deployment
  • Records depth, temperature, water flow and velocity readings
  • Works in depths as little as 0.5" up to 3 ft
  • Weather-resistant logging unit
  • Large 81,000 point data logger with USB communications
  • Heavy duty 25 ft of sensor cable

The FL16U Flow Logger will revolutionize the way you collect flow data. The FL16 will record over 81,000 depth, temperature, flow, and velocity readings for applications such as: in­flow and infiltration studies, storm and waste collection systems, open channels (including sewer and drainage pipes, flumes, weirs, and square channels), and a host of other gravity-flow type systems. Not recommended for applications with solids, strings, undissolved waste products or coating materials.

The FL16’s specially engineered, non­fouling level sensor works in depths as low as 3/4" and allows for deployment in manholes and other difficult to ac­cess areas without the need to enter the confined space. With multiple FL16’s you can collect rain event or other flow event data from 5 or 6 sites simultane­ously– all for less than the price of one of the other flowmeters on the market.

The FL16’s user-friendly Windows­-based software is tailored specifically for calculating flows in partially filled sewer and drainage pipes using the Manning’s Equation. Pull-down menus for selecting and entering the neces­sary pipe or primary device information make programming quick and easy. A unique calibration feature allows users to view calculated water velocity, com­pare this to actual measured data, and adjust the flow parameters to calibrate the flow conditions of a specific ap­plication. Flow equations for over 40 standard flumes and weirs are provided, as well as user-definable custom lookup tables that can be used to convert wa­ter level to flow for virtually any appli­cation. Once configured, all setup and flow parameters are stored in the FL16’s memory and are uploaded to the soft­ware automatically upon connection. This information can also be saved to a file for later use, allowing the FL16 to be deployed in multiple locations without the need to re-enter the flow parameters each time it is moved.

The FL16 operates on two standard 9 volt batteries, which it monitors so you are never caught off guard with dead bat­teries. Our optional FLMNT protective housing includes hardware for mount­ing to a manhole step or other structure, which allows for easy installation and replacement in the field.

It comes with a USB interface and includes the weatherproof log­ger unit, the non-fouling sensor with 25 feet of heavy duty cable, and the FL16-ACM software package.
