INSIGHT ULTIMATE Flowmeter and Pressure Indicators

Pressure gets water to the fire, but it's water flow that puts the fire out! Getting the right flow on the fire is critical. Forget using rule-of-thumb based on variables such as pressure readings, hose size, length, and friction loss. Flowmeters give an exact and immediate measure of the water being used.

The Insight Ultimate is a flowmeter and pressure indicator that displays the flow rate and the pressure at the discharge.

The INSIGHT ULTIMATE digital flowmeter and pressure indicator combines a digital LED flow display and a traditional style electronic pressure indicator into one practical display module. The digital flowmeter is a 4-digit LED display driven by a paddlewheel flow sensor. The pressure indicator is an electronically controlled analog display. A microprocessor controls the needle movement to provide an accurate and steady pressure display. Leakage and freeze-up problems common in mechanical pressure gauges are eliminated.

Backlighting Now available with backlighting! A new option for 2008.

The pressure/flow indicator is able to communicate with other display modules over a datalink. This technology allows for remote displays, the display of flow for multiple discharges (summing), and the totalization of flow for multiple discharges (accumulation). Pressure information is from a pressure sensor and flow rate is provided by a paddlewheel type flow sensor, both are mounted in the discharge. This information is processed and shown on the digital display.

PLUMBING THE FLOW SENSOR

The proper installation of the flow sensor is essential. The final accuracy of the digital flow display will be based on the plumbing choices made at installation. Refer to the Flow Sensor page for more details.
