With accuracy levels of up to +/- 0.25% of reading and
repeatability of +/- 0.05%, the FlowSonic delivers the
quality data needed for precision measurement of fuel
(and other fluid) flows in industry or motorsport.
Up to 2.2k entirely independent flow measurements
per second – the fastest rate in the industry – ensure
accuracy under all operating conditions and provide
an unparalleled view of dynamic flow behaviour, even
recording individual injector pulses.
With a dry weight of just 330g and volume of 260cc,
the FlowSonic installs as easily on a vehicle as a test
bench. Yet it is strong enough to perform reliably in
the harsh environment of a Formula 1 or LMP1 race
car. The solid-state design minimises pressure drop
and eliminates the risk of engine damage.
The FlowSonic offers data communication options
to suit almost any test system, with CAN, digital TTL
pulse, and analog outputs all available.
The FlowSonic can be used with virtually any kind of
fuel, from pump petrol and diesel to racing blends and
ethanol, methanol, or bio-diesel alternative fuels. The
HF model is also compatible with water, other engine
coolants, and selected oil types.
The FlowSonic employs proven proprietary circuitry,
firmware, and software to convert raw data into key
measures including volume flow and mass flow, plus
a wide range of diagnostic and security functions.
With six different specification levels and price points, there is a FlowSonic model suited to every motor racing category and series, plus variants designed to meet the automotive industry’s demand for outstanding accuracy and consistency in testing across a wide range of flow rates.
The ultimate motorsport fuel flow sensor, the Elite is designed to satisfy the FIA’s strict requirements for use in F1 and LMP1. It is accurate to +/-0.25%, generates 2.2k completely separate flow measurements per second, and is fully immersible. The new HT version offers an extended temperature range of up to 120°C.
Our middle specification unit is suitable for a wide range of top-rank motor racing categories – particularly those relying on a single fuel – such as IMSA, IndyCar, NASCAR, DTM, Super GT, and Australian Supercars. The Super is accurate to +/-0.50% with a sample rate of 1.0k distinct flow measurements per second.
This accurate, robust, and affordable fuel flow monitoring solution is perfect for classes with lower budgets, including GT3, touring car, junior formula, and one-make championships. The Pro model features accuracy of +/-0.75% with the
same true 1.0 kHz measurement rate as the Super.
A breakthrough in fuel flow testing technology for the automotive sector, the next-generation LF offers unmatched precision and convenience in measuring the full range of flow rates (including transitory and ultra-low flows) found in today’s high-efficiency road car engines. Our lowest-noise, highest-accuracy sensor boasts an industry-leading 500:1 turndown rate and easy portability from bench to road.
For measurement of high-rate automotive water, coolant, and oil as well as fuel flows, look to our versatile new HF model. It delivers accuracy of +/- 0.50% at an update rate of 500 Hz for flows up to 360 l/min, and also features zero pressure drop in a package weighing just 950g.
