The 9900 Transmitter is compatible with all GF Signet flow sensors (515, 525, 2000, 2100, 2507, 2536,

2537, 2540, 2551, and 2552).

Signet flow sensors 515, 525, 2000, 2100, 2507, 2536 and 2540 provide a frequency output. (Flow sensors 2551 and 2552 can be configured with either Digital (S 3 L) or Frequency outputs). Depending on the sensor configuration, the 9900 Transmitter can be configured for a frequency or S 3 L signal.

515, 525 and 2536 can be run on Loop Power. All other flow sensors require DC power.

Upgrading from an 8550 panel mount installation to the 9900 requires no mechanical changes to the sensors. There are, however, wiring differences. Please refer to the 9900 manual at www.gfsignet.com for sensor wiring instructions for your application.
