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.
A breakthrough in fuel flow testing technology for the OEM automotive sector, the FlowSonic LF offers unmatched precision and convenience in measuring the full range of fuel flow rates (including ultra-low and transitory reverese flows) found in today’s high-efficiency road car engines. Our highest-accuracy sensor boasts easy bench-to-vehicle portability, making it ideal for the RDE and WLTP emissions testing standards.
For measurement of high-volume water, coolant, and oil as well as fuel flows in heavy-duty commercial and industrial vehicle powerplants, look to our versatile HF model. It delivers accuracy of +/- 0.50% of reading at an update rate of 1.0 KHz for flows up to 500 litres/minute, and also features an industry-leading 500:1 turndown ratio and zero pressure drop in a package weighing just 650g.
The FlowSonic range of motorsport fuel flow sensors has been developed for both performance (fuel management) and regulatory (balance of performance and power limitation) applications. Three models are available to suit the full spectrum of racing categories, fuels, and budgets.
The ultimate motorsport fuel flow sensor, the Elite was designed to satisfy the FIA’s strict homologation requirements for use in Formula 1 and LMP1. It has been adopted for regulatory use in Formula 1 and IMSA, and was also fitted to the 2017 IndyCar and IMSA GTLM-class champions. It is accurate to +/-0.25% of reading, generates 2.2k separate flow measurements per second, and is fully immersible.
Our mid-specification unit is suitable for a wide range of headline motor racing series, particularly those relying on a single fuel such as NASCAR, DTM, Super GT, Super Formula, and Australian Supercars. The Super is accurate to +/-0.50% of reading with a sample rate of 1.0k distinct flow measurements per second.
This accurate, robust, and affordable fuel flow monitoring solution is ideal for classes with lower budgets, including GT3, touring car, junior formula, and even club racing competition. The Pro model features accuracy of +/-0.75% of reading with the same true 1.0 kHz measurement rate as the FlowSonic Super.
