Here is a better pic of the flow meter deal. Aquabus wire I am using is called "Aquabus RPM signal Cable". USB is hooked up to my motherboard just as my Aquaero is.

Cables are new out of the box and the aquaero has been going for years now without any issues. Is there something here I am missing? I realize it isnt a high flow device, but it should at least show some sort of flow. I have 2 D5s in parallel and when changed (when the device was working) the reading was pretty low for this sort of fluid driving power.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

As Jakusonfire said, plus you should use a 4-pin cable for the aquabus connection. Never mind that it's also connected by USB to the mobo. Using a 4-pin cable for aquabus connection does no harm, and it may make problems if you don't.

Do you have any other MPS devices in the loop? (i.e.MPS pressure sensor or MPS D5 pumps)

It would also be useful if you could provide a screenshot of the "Sensor configuration" page.

It never came with a 4 pin cable, I thought also that this was needed for hook up.






It was working at one stage and was under "flow 12" which makes sense but now nothing appears. Under my MPS page my flow meter was recognized and it was displaying 777 as the active value for .6L/min. I guess im trying to figure out how to get this graph back after it disappeared.

This is the only MPS device in my loop and I have no pressure sensors either. I have 4 temp sensors that work fine and then this has caused me problems for some time now.

I just got my Farbwerk. I noticed I'm not supposed to let the board touch anything metal. Will the standoffs built into it be enough to prevent it from shorting out components?

Will the Poweradjust mounting plate fit a Farbwerk? It looks like I don't have any predrilled holes that'll fit all of the Farbwerk standoffs.

You have the sensor set as the wrong type of device. The Aquaero is also not detecting it through aquabus. That could possibly be because the configuration is wrong or you may just need to pull all the power for a full shutdown and restart of the Aquaero so it will detect the aquabus.

This is the only MPS device in my loop and I have no pressure sensors either. I have 4 temp sensors that work fine and then this has caused me problems for some time now.[

The 3-pin cable included in the delivery is intended for the alarm output from the MPS device's RPM port to the mobo CPU fan header. It generates a fan RPM signal that can be used to shut down the motherboard if the BIOS is setup for it. It is more for if the MPS unit is used as a stand-alone device, sans aquaero. The 4-pin cable is a separate purchase. Technically the 3-pin cable can be used if you maintain the USB connection, but I find it simpler to just recommend 4-pin cables for aquabus use. There is no down side.

EDIT: For clarification, the 4th pin on the aquabus provides power which is also provided by the USB connection if it is maintained.

Snippet from the product page:
Quote:
The mps flow sensors feature an integrated microcontroller with USB and aquabus interface, a programmable alarm output, an integrated water temperature sensor and an external temperature sensor input. For monitoring and configuration, the aquasuite software can be downloaded free of charge. In addition to the USB interface, the 4-pin aquabus interface can be used to directly connect the flow sensor to an aquaero 5 controller (not included in delivery). The alarm output can be configured to be used as a rpm signal to be connected to a fan connector with fault detection (for example motherboard fan headers) or to be used as a switched output for example to connect a LED. Flow signal, water temperature and external temperature sensor input can be configured to raise an alarm.

Scope of delivery:
One flow sensor
One internal USB cable
One aquabus/rpm signal cable (3 pins)

thanks for the awesome infomation! Upon a restart today there is a registration of flow in the MPS page, but nothing seems to come up in the auquacomputer sensor page. Like you said for now the device is connected via 3 pin to aquabus high port, and with USB power to the motherboard. Its weird that nothing pops up on the main page, but MPS is viewable and works

I believe that means the flow sensor is communicating via USB but it is not communicating with the aquaero via aquabus.
Not sure how important it is, but under the MPS flow sensor > System tab have you set Priority to aquabus?

post #5899 of 11094
Yes it is under Aquabus. Its weird that is just doesn't want to show up at all. It worked for a little bit yesterday but then just disappeared when I went to go rename it. MPS window seems accurate with a flow of 200 L/hr, topped out, but this is fine for the time being.

Is the MPS showing up under Windows Devices?
