Flow meter reference design boosts accuracy

Flow meter reference design boosts accuracy
Energy and water metering can now be made more accurate by an order of magnitude says Maxim Integrated by using the MAXREFDES70# ultrasonic flow meter system. Its low power attributes mean it can operate for up to 20 years on a single “A”- size battery. It will see off the traditional mechanical flow meters prone to friction and contaminants, which causes inaccurate meter readings.
