CLXC-P Plastic Totalizing Water Meter with Pulse/Reed Switch Output for Potable Water
Use with INSTEON EZFlora, I/OLinc or other low voltage module to send water usage information in one or ten gallon increments to a suitable automation controller like HomeRunner RBI. Use this information to accurately monitor and control water usage for drinking, irrigation, humidification, hydroponic gardening, or other applications. Contact us if you have any questions concerning water meter or automation controller configuration.
These plastic meters have NSF/WQA approval for potable water. We recommend CLXC-C1 meters for use with non-potable water.
Water meters are special order items. Shipping usually takes about 1 week.
Single-jet dry type totalizing water meters. They are an ideal choice for a range of automated water use monitoring applications.
A pulse output of one pulse per gallon or 10 gallons is available. A 1.5 meter (59") length of 2-conductor wire 3.5 mm diameter is standard. One conductor has red insulation and one has black.Max Voltage: 24V AC/DC, Max Current: 0.01 A, Output Bounce Time: 0.01 second. Front panel readout indicates total water usage.
Meters are produced in an ISO9001 certified production facility and conform to International Standard ISO4064.

Registration Accuracy, with water <80oF (27oC):
Normal Test Flow Range (Table 1): ±1.5% (The meter will register 98.5% to 101.5% of the water that passes through it)
At Minimum Flow (Table 1): -5%,+1.0% (The meter will register 95% to 101.0% of the water that passes through it)
Pressure Drop:15 PSI Max, see pressure drop curves
Installation: Horizontal orientation recommended
Casing Spud Connections: External straight threads according to ANSI/ASME B1.20.1.See Dimensions,
Connections and Weights (Table 2) for details.
Standard Accessories: Each meter is supplied with meter coupling (tailpiece) sets; includes 2 couplings and 2 gaskets.
The pulse emitter consists of a plastic housing with a reed switch that is closed when a magnet mounted on one of the meters register gears comes into its activation proximity.
