The FDH-1A series has been discontinued. Please contact our Technical Sales department for an alternative.
Doppler technology is used to
measure the flow rate of liquids
with particulate and/or bubbles
suspended in it. Transit time
technology is used for clean liquids
OMEGA’s FDH-1A Series hybrid
ultrasonic flowmeter allows
customers to select between
doppler and transit time technology
with a single instrument. Isolated
analog output, frequency output and
the ability to data-log to standard
SD cards are standard included
features. The FDH-1 is programmed
via a menu driven QVGA LCD
display with a 5 button interface
panel. Optional control functions
with relay outputs are optional (-R3).
The communications option
package (-COMM) gives user’s
RS232, RS485, USB and Ethernet
for interfacing to a PC

Rate display in feet or meters per second. Display Time Units: Seconds, minutes, hours, days Display/Output Response Time: Selectable; 0.25, 0.50, 1.0 (default), 2.5, 5.0 seconds Flow Rate Display Averaging: Selectable; 0.50, 1.0, 2.5, 5.0 (default), 10.0 sec Data Outputs: Isolated 4 to 20 mA output fully configurable, invertible; 0 to 1000 Hz pulse output fully configurable, invertible Data Logging: Date/time stamped flow rate and flow total data in FAT32 file format, easily imported into Excel. Configurable to trigger on time interval (1-999,999 sec), rate and/or total set-point values. Over 500,000 log events possible with included 32 MB SD card. Process Control (-R3 option): Three independently configurable 10 amp Form C, NO/NC relays. Configure to flow rate for high/low/ range rate alarm. Programmable release values enable auto release or manual latching operation. Configure to flow total for manual trigger batch operations or automatically triggered, timed batch operations External Communications (-COMM Option): Computer connection via RS232, RS485, USB, Ethernet. Includes user communication and configuration software. Permits remote internet access through local network set-up. Remotely access and upload data logging files Clamp-On Transducers Housing: NEMA 6P (IP67), Plastic transducers (PVDF base housing with Polypropylene cover), SS clamps and hardware Dimensions: 79 H x 75 W x 41 mm D Weight (Excluding Cable): 0.8 lb each Cable: Shielded coaxial RG/U Type; 59. PVC jacket, black. RoHS Compliant Standard length: 3 m Optional Lengths Available: 15 m, 30 m Pipe Surface Temperature: -34 to 121°C Shipping Specifications Carton Dimensions: 533 H x 432 W x 241 mm D Carton Weight: 10.9 kg Note: For fluid, flow stream, minimum straight pipe and mounting requirements see the FDH-1 operator’s manual
Any FDH-1can be equipped with a communications
package (-COMM) that includes Ethernet, USB,
RS232, and RS485 connections, and proprietar
user PC Software. When connected to a PC running
the software, the user can access the configuration
menu for program editing and data logging downloads
directly into a PC.
The software user interface mimics the 5-button touch
pad so learning to use the software application is
simple. Simply clicking on the buttons is the same as
pressing the buttons on the FDH-1 touch pad. Pressing
and holding shift while clicking on a button simulates
pressing and holding a button on the touch pad
Process Control Options
Any FDH-1 model can be equipped with a process
control relay package (-R3) that includes three
independently programmable 10 A relays. Each relay
can be configured to respond to changes in either the
measured rate of flow or the accumulated total flow
value. When assigned to monitor flow rate, high/low/
range rate alarms are possible. When assigned to
monitor accumulated total, manual trigger batch
operations or automatically triggered, timed batch
(proportional feed) operations are possible.

Standard sensor cable length is 3 m, with liquid-tight, non-removable cable gland
For a 5-point NIST calibration, add suffix "-NIST" to the part number, add one week to the lead time; and contact sales for additional cost.
