Title: Need help for Ultrasonic flow sensor
Post by: ickulathunga on May 21, 2019, 11:35 pm
hello, is there anyone who has tried to make a water flow sensor using Ultrasonic? if you have already done this share the steps.
thank you  :)

Sure.  Buy one of these:  https://www.omega.com/en-us/sensors-and-sensing-equipment/flow/ultrasonic-flow-meters/p/FDT7000 (https://www.omega.com/en-us/sensors-and-sensing-equipment/flow/ultrasonic-flow-meters/p/FDT7000)

and use the approach given by @wawa in post #4 of the following link to read the 4-20ma signal:https://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=561022.0 (https://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=561022.0)

If code for an ultrasonic flow sensor already existed then you'd not be designing one using the Arduino. Your code might be the first. Cool project. Keep us updated as you progress.
