August 18, 2021 – Mouser Electronics, a distributor of Electronic components focused on introducing new products and offering massive inventory, is now stocking ScioSense’s AS6040 ultrasonic flowmeter. This is an ultra-low power flow meter designed for industrial and residential gas meters, as well as water meters.
Distributed by Mouser, the ScioSense AS6040 integrates four system modules: a monitor, analog front end, post-processing, and interface to form a single-chip solution for measuring flow. Among them, the monitor module integrates an ultra-low-power 32-bit CPU to manage all tasks, enabling the AS6040 to achieve autonomy; the front-end module integrates high-voltage drivers, programmable gain amplifiers, and bias-stabilized comparators in the receive path, and also With accurate time-of-flight measurement, amplitude measurement and temperature measurement. The flowmeter uses a Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) bus, which is compatible with a variety of host microcontrollers, simplifying integration.
In addition, Mouser also stocks the AS6031 Ultrasonic Flow Meter. The product combines precise measurement and sophisticated flow calculations to simplify the design of next-generation ultrasonic water and heat meters. Based on the TDC-GP30 platform, the AS6031 uses the same high-performance front-end to drive the sensors and process the received signals to extract time-of-flight information from them. The AS6031 is also equipped with an additional programmable amplifier so it can handle weaker receive amplitudes.
AS6040 and AS6031 flowmeters have supporting AS6040 development tools and AS6031 development tools respectively. These kits support the various functions required for standard water and heat meters, and offer user-friendly configurations that enable faster and easier development and evaluation.
