Liquid Flow Meter – YF-S401

$11.95

Availability: In Stock

This simple flow sensor is very similar to its big brother, the YF-S201, but has been optimized for lower flow rates and features a higher pulse per liter count. Inside the housing, a small pinwheel with an attached magnet is spun by passing water; as the magnet makes each revolution, a hall effect sensor inside the housing outputs a pulse on the yellow wire.
