The high performance of Audiwei water flow sensor is mainly reflected in:

01-Fast peak value, high sensitivity, easy signal processing

As can be seen from the comparative analysis of the echoes of Audiwei US0078 and similar sensors in Figure 2, the Audiwei water meter flow sensor only needs 8 waves to reach the peak value to complete the start-up. Compared with other products whose 12 waves reach the peak value, there are 4 less echo signals. time, shorter time and higher sensitivity.

From the waveform point of view, the difference between the peaks of the echo received by Audiwei US0078 is obvious, the difference between adjacent signal waves is larger than that of similar sensors, and it is easy to distinguish the first, second, third or more recovered signal waves. Reducing the difficulty of signal processing at the perception level is conducive to simplifying the algorithm of water meter measurement, and laying a core hardware foundation for water meter R&D and manufacturing enterprises to reduce costs and increase efficiency.

02-Electrical performance is more stable with zero flow drift value at high and low temperature

Table 1 is a comparison of the zero flow drift value of the electrical performance of Audiwei US0078 and similar sensors in low temperature and high temperature environments. In the case of zero flow, the receiving amplitude of Audiwei US0078 is 432mV in the low temperature environment of 10℃; in the high temperature environment of 60℃, the receiving amplitude is 369mV, and the amplitude change ratio is 14.64%. The value change ratios are 19.32% and 24.66% respectively, and the amplitude change is significantly lower than that of similar products in the market, indicating that its electrical performance is highly stable at high and low temperature with zero flow drift value, which is higher than the industry level.

03-The maximum pressure resistance can reach 4.8MPa, and the reliability is strong

A static water pressure test was carried out on the Audiwei water meter flow sensor US0078. The test condition was to maintain a water pressure of 4.8Mpa for 15 minutes. By comparing the test parameters before and after the test, it was found that the product performance has always remained stable and met the specification requirements. In addition, Audiwei US0078 can work continuously in the environment of 2.5MPa for a long time, meeting the needs of buildings with long water usage time, high water pressure during peak periods, and high pressure requirements.
