Water flow meter sensor is a sensor that can detect the speed of water flow.
One of a flow sensor that is often used is the production of seeedstudio. Water flow meter sensor works based on half-effect sensors that are inside.
Half-effect sensors work by rotation of the turbine that is rotated by the flow of water. Water flow meter sensor is wrapped with a plastic body which has two holes as input and output streams.
