About MACE Doppler ultrasonics and MASP technology

True average velocity measurement with MASP Technology. MACE velocity sensors use continuous wave Doppler ultrasound to measure the speed of dirt, bubbles and other particles in the stream flow.

MACE Doppler ultrasonic velocity sensors utilizing MACE Advanced Signal Processing (MASP) technology “see” across the entire stream profile to give a true average velocity.


Doppler ultrasonic insert velocity sensor

For use in full pipes or partially full pipes when used in conjunction with an EchoFlo depth sensor. Insertion sensors measure velocity only and require access to the outside wall of the pipe in which the sensor is to be mounted. These sensors can be installed into existing pipework through a 2″ ball valve (recommended) or just through a 2 inch female thread fitting.

Doppler ultrasonic velocity sensor

Velocity sensor for use in full pipes or open channels when used in conjunction with a depth sensor. This sensor is used to measure velocity only in full pipes when access to the pipe is available and the pipe can be emptied when installation or maintenance is required. It can also be used in partially full pipes or open channels in situations where the user is measuring depth by a third party or ultrasonic depth sensor.

Doppler ultrasonic area/velocity sensor

Combined velocity and depth sensor for use in partially full pipes or open channels. This sensor is used in open channels or pipes that run partially full. This sensor is used to measure depth (using a capacitive pressure diaphragm) and velocity. Access to the monitoring point is required for installation and maintenance.

Electromagnetic insert sensor

The MACE Electromagnetic Insert Velocity sensor is a heavy duty, high performance sensor in an adjustable insertion configuration. This insertion style flow sensor has no moving parts and is constructed of corrosion-resistant materials to provide long-term reliability with minimal maintenance costs.

The MACE Electromagnetic Insert Velocity sensor is versatile and simple-to-install, delivering reliable flow measurement over a wide dynamic range in pipe sizes ranging from DN40 to DN1200.

The empty pipe detection features a zero flow output when the electrodes are not completely wetted.

Tech Specs:

Material type:

Stainless Steel and PVDF

Pipe Sizes:

DN40 to DN1200

Compatibility:

MACE Pulse I/O Card

Thread Type:

1″ BSP or 1″ NPT


EchoFlo ultrasonic depth sensor

The MACE EchoFlo features patented DSP technology that allows level measurement in a limited space. With a minimal 2″ (50mm) dead band and narrow beam-width, the EchoFlo can be deployed in a diverse range of applications. These include: wastewater flow measurement through flumes (coupled with a MACE FloPro XCi, AgriFlo XCi or HydroMace XCi); level measurement in small tanks and sumps; depth measurement in pipes; and any number of other control automation applications where non-contact level measurement is desirable or necessary.

The MACE EchoFlo is easy to configure using the free EchoCal software and is economical to purchase and install.
