Abstract: The Principle of the twin-wire resistance probe rotameter is developed in this paper. The main feature of the design is a low-cost flowmeter with an electrical output capability. From performance tests conducted on both a simulated rotameter and an actual rotameter constructed based on this principle, good agreement was observed between experimental and analytical results. It was found that the output voltage from this flowmeter depends mainly upon the material and the size of the float used, and the angle of the taper of the surface of the meter.
