Omron Digital Display
The Omron is a battery powered unit (7-year life) and has a small reset button on the bottom right corner. The digital display will display the number of pulses put out by the water meter reed switch and is often installed where access to the meter is difficult or unsafe such as overhead pipework or in a basement. If the meter has a pulse output of 1 pulse per litre, the Omron is going to display actual litres and can be reset to zero.
Whats the Pulse Output for?
If you wish to digitally or remotely monitor and record your usage you will require a meter with a pulse output. These can be directly connected to a digital display or you can connect to data acquisition equipment.
What size do I require?
Australian domestic pipes are either 1/2" or 3/4" - Please ask your plumber.
Do the meters come with both brass unions?
Yes! All our meters come with suitable 1/2" or 3/4" brass unions (male).
Do I need to install the filter?
We recommend you install a filter to protect the meter from debris. The filters we sell are easily cleaned by unscrewing the nut as shown below and then removing the cylindrical mesh filter and washing with clean water to remove debris...
