Mechanical Current Meter
The small, lightweight mechanical current velocity meter is suitable for measurements in rivers, channels, sewage systems, pipes, and more. The set is complete with line attachment and case.
- Small and lightweight
- Corrosion proof
- Can be applied at great depths
- Balanced for dynamic stability
This mechanical current velocity meter has a measuring range of approximately 0.1 - 7.9 m/s. Suspended from a wire, the meter can be applied at great depth.
The meter is balanced in such a way that it will remain in a horizontal position even if it's pulled at speed by a line. The propeller is linked directly to a six digit counter, placed within the instrument, that registers and visualises every single rotation of the propeller, similar to the mileage counter in a car.
You can read the overall number of rotations of the propeller on the counter through a clear synthetic window. The meter can be mounted to a wire as well as to a telescopic rod (with an extended length of 2.4 metre). The telescopic rod is optional with this product. Delivered in a case.
