NE0XY Thanks for the answers,
I'll probably get the non-USB version. And I'll probably use the RPM cable from my current flowmeter, I guess that would work.

skupples you have two models.


Model A uses the BIG 3 pin which connects via RPM header on the Aquaero, no temp sensor. (this is the one I said you could



Model B (newer model) uses Auqabus (PWM 4 pin header) + a 2 pin fem/fem temp probe line (probably includes ones) to the aquaero temp probe section.

Actually, the Flow Sensor High Flow USB does NOT have the 3-pin port/cable.
The aquasuite gets the flow rate over the USB and/or aquabus connection.

Edit: since the aquabus cable is essentially a 4-pin PWM fan cable, you can get various lengths or extensions as needed.

I see, thanks. I don't need that many so I'll stick with the regular one. Thanks
Now I'll just need to find a longer 3pin cable from EU shop since I don't think the 30cm one will be enough

So in this USB version, I'm not sure I understand when I compare your comment and the product description. Does it include a temp sensor or no? And I still have to connect a 3pin (for rpm) and USB to my Aquaero?

Thanks

a glob of hot glue in each hole fixes this issue, and makes it drip-proof (I've also fried one getting drips into the 3 pin)



the newer model includes a temp sensor and more interface options.

TLDR: Is this flow indicator compatible with the Aquaero 6XT? And is there anything else I should consider?

Since I have Aquaeros, I went for the non-USB variants.
Ah, not needed for me then, since I have an Aquaero.
Thanks for the assist
