Electronic flow meters are industrial digital flow meters for fluid flow rate measurement. In more cases, people will default that Electronic flow meters are electromagnetic flowmeters.
Electronic flow meters types like Magnetic, Vortex, and Ultrasonic flow meters. Electronic flow meters are suitable for Industrial liquid, water, natural gas, petrol, fuel, air, and more fluid flow. Electronic flow meters convert the monitored fluid flow into electronic signals. Including pulse signal, 4-20mA standard signal, etc.
Sino-Inst offers a variety of Electronic flow meters for flow measurement. If you have any questions, please contact our sales engineers.
Sino-Inst, the manufacturer of Electronic flow meters. We will answer your various questions about Electronic flow meters.
What is electronic flow meter?
A flow meter is a device used to measure the volume or mass of a gas or liquid. Flow meters are referred to by many names, such as flow gauge, flow indicator, liquid meter, flow rate sensor, flow rate meter, etc. depending on the particular industry.
While magnetic, vortex, and ultrasonic–are neither exclusively nor exhaustively electronic in nature. They do represent a logical grouping of flow measurement technologies.
All electronic flow meters have no moving parts, are non-intrusive, and are made by electronics technology.
Magnetic flowmeters are the most directly electrical in nature, deriving their first principles of operation from Faraday’s law. Vortex meters depend on piezoelectric sensors to detect vortices shed from a stationary shedder bar. And today’s ultrasonic flowmeters owe their successful application to sophisticated digital signal processing.

Electronic flow meter working principle
Simply put, the working principle of Electronic Flow Meters is to convert the flow rate of the measured fluid into an electronic signal through the flow sensor component. And can carry out flow rate display and signal output. For example, display instantaneous flow rate, cumulative flow, etc.
As you can see. There are many types of Electronic Flow Meters. Therefore, their accurate measurement principles are different.
Perhaps you are not clear about the principle of Electronic Flow Meters. Don’t want to know more about it. Just want to find the applicable Electronic Flow Meters. Then you can start from your measuring medium.
Electronic flow meter for water
A Digital Water flow meter is a flow meter that can display the water flow rate, and have the output for the flow rate. Like 4-20mA output, HART, RS 485, and so on. Digital Water Flow Meter is also called Electronic Water Flow Meter. Digital Water Flow Meter is widely used in industrial water and household water measurement. Most of the Sino-Inst flow meters are digital water flow meters. Like the electromagnetic flowmeter, Portable ultrasonic flow meter, Turbine flow meter…..

Electronic flow meter for oil
Industrial oil flow meters measure the volume or mass of oil. Can realize the mutual conversion of volume and mass.
The main industrial oils are hydraulic oil. Gear Oil. Turbine oil. Compressor oil. Refrigeration oil. Transformer oil. Cylinder oil, heat treatment oil, heat transfer oil, etc. Of course, edible oil can also be produced in the industry. In addition, there are greases with lubricating oil as base oil and thickening agent.
Therefore, whether it is a company that uses, trades, or produces oil, it needs to accurately measure the oil flow.
There are many common oil flow meters, such as turbine flow meters, positive displacement flow meters, gear flow meters, mass flow meters, etc.
Then, we need to choose a suitable flow meter that meets the measurement and budget according to different working conditions.
