Re: Tutorial: Reading Water Flow rate with Water Flow Sensor

No problem Eric. I enjoyed writing it. I am working on the next write up, where I will show the user how to display that flow rate on an LCD. Eventually I want to set it up so the user can log the data using the Seeeduino Stalker.

Tutorial: Reading Water Flow rate with Water Flow Sensor

This is part of a project I have been working on and I thought I would share it here since there have been a few threads on how to read water flow rate in liters per hour using the Water Flow Sensor found in the Seeed Studio Depo. It uses a simple rotating wheel that pulses a hall effect sensor. By ...

Re: flow mesurement

The flow meter Seeed already carries can do this quite easy. I will post the arduino sketch for this tonight.

Re: Arduino Controlled PC Water Cooling System info center.

Just wanted to add a quick update to this. I have also added PWM PC fan control and have finished my standalone board design.

Re: Arduino Controlled PC Water Cooling System info center.

I am still working on refining the board but thought I would post my latest revision to the schematic. This was created in Eagle. I will get a new fritzing schematic up soon.

Re: Arduino Controlled PC Water Cooling System info center.

I am getting close to wrapping this project up. I am just waiting on my flow sensors to arrive and some multiplexers. As soon as everything gets here and I confirm that things work like I planned I will be using Seeed's PCB service to make some arduino shield style boards.

Re: Arduino Controlled PC Water Cooling System info center.

Hey Karen, Yes as the polling time decreases so does the accuracy. Having it poll for 1 second is acceptable for this project but I may move down to .5 seconds as I will have a total of 4 hall effect sensors to poll data from. The RPMs we see from PC fans and water pumps are pretty high. Fans are ar...
