About this product

The Hach FH 950 is lightweight, battery powered flow meter is designed to provide accurate velocity measurements in rugged field environments. Multiple user-friendly features designed into the FH950 allow you to quickly and easily determine stream velocities for required discharge measurements, calibrate area velocity flow meters, or verify primary devices such as weirs and flumes. The FH 950's ability to store and download velocity and entered depth information with the meter, minimizes field time. Discharge calculations are automatically calculated by the meter and collected data are downloaded to a PC via the USB connection, eliminating the need for labor intensive manual data transfer. The electromagnetic sensor has no moving parts and never requires maintenance. Turbulent, noisy and low velocities are easily metered. When the sensor is placed in flowing water, it's magnetic field creates a voltage that is sensed by electrodes embedded in the sensor. The signal is electronically processed by the smart sensor’s microprocessor and is digitally transmitted to the portable meter display. A 6.1m sensor cable is also included.
