Sensor Manifolds

Supplier: Ambit Instruments playlist_addCompare

AMBIT is sole Australian distributor for Universal Flow Monitors Inc. who produce a wide range of sensor manifolds. Sensor manifolds distribute flow (through one common inlet and up to four outlets of choice) and monitor the flow rate to each branch. Temperature and/or pressure can be monitored as well. The readings are then transmitted to a remote panel (or the UFM OCTOPUS 8-CHANNEL RECEIVER CONTROLLER.) for control or monitoring functions.

Price Guide (Inc GST): POA


Flow enters the manifold at the inlet, and is distributed to each sensor and outlet port (up to 4),. The flow sensor is a spring loaded swinging vane: flow moves each vane, creating a variable area. Each vane shaft rotates, turning the potentiometers. Each potentiometer provides a non-linear precess signal to a remote linearizing transmitter. The 4-20 mA transmitter output can be used for visual readouts, control flow alarms, or computer input.


  • The OCTOPUS 8-channel multifunction receiver/controller is for use in systems where accurate flow totalizing and rate indication are required. It accepts and displays such inputs as flow rate, pressure and temperature, rpm etc. Features include:
  • 8 alarms (high low or comparative)
  • Alarms may be configured to operate any combination of relays.
  • Conditions signals with 12 point linearization
  • Provides a configurable digital input filter
  • Provides batching capabilities
  • Provides eight user-configurable Form C alarm relays
  • And many more
