Defective Flow Meter?

by 3vilpenguin on Wed Jan 30, 2013 11:01 pm

I ordered the arduino capable flow meter, and it doesn't work. I spent a few days troubleshooting it, no luck!

I've successfully had the seeed version a while ago, so I'm sure it's not a bad schematic.

The code is the sample code from
The schematic: arduino Digital 2 to the yellow pin (sensor), 5v (via the arduino 5v pin) to the red input (5v), and grounded to the arduino ground. It picks up 0 for all it's readings.

Is this the plastic or brass-bodied meter? The wiring & code are the same for both & if the Seeed version works in the same circuit, there must be a problem with that unit.

If you contact with a link to this thread we can replace that for you.
