Flow Meter using Arduino

In this tutorial we are designing flow meter using arduino, basically we use arduino boot loader controller on our custom made PCB.

A flow meter is a device used to measure the flow rate or quantity of a gas or liquid moving through a pipe. Flow measurement applications are very diverse and each situation has its own constraints and engineering requirements. Flow meters are referred to by many names, such as flow gauge, flow indicator, liquid meter, etc. depending on the particular industry; however the function, to measure flow, remains the same.

LED Bar-graph Display


LED bar-graph displays are much popular in battery level indication, water level indicator applications. Most of the inverter units have LED bar-graph display on its front panel. As we have seen in previous application we used only one LED to indicate battery level. With reference to above application we are showing voltage level on LED bar-graph display.

Water Level Measurement Using Arduino

Water Level Measurement

Here we discuss on low cost continuous liquid level monitoring system based on MPX5010DP differential pressure sensor. Most of the traditional measuring systems were designed and implemented by complicated hardware circuitry. It made the product expensive, with low functionality and with limited precision. With virtual measurement technology, more of the instrument can be substituted by software. Using this approach the cheaper and more versatile measurement system can be developed. The method for obtaining liquid level with one differential pressure sensors MPX5010DP Continue reading Water Level Measurement Using Arduino

Distance Measurement using Ultrasonic Sensor HC-SR04 and Arduino

The HC-SR04 Ultrasonic Sensor is a very affordable proximity/distance sensor that has been used mainly for object avoidance in various robotics projects. It essentially gives your Arduino eyes / special awareness and can prevent your robot from crashing or falling off a table. It has also been used in blind stick applications, water level sensing, and even as a parking sensor. Continue reading Distance Measurement using Ultrasonic Sensor HC-SR04 and Arduino

Water flow measurement with Arduino

The flow sensor used here works on the principle of “Hall Effect”. According to which, a voltage difference is induced in a conductor transverse to the electric current and the magnetic field perpendicular to it. Here, Hall Effect is utilized in the flow meter using a small fan/propeller shaped rotor which is placed in the path of the liquid flowing. Continue reading Water flow measurement with Arduino
