Example code:

// Reading liquid flow rate using an Arduino 

// Code adapted by Charles Gantt from PC Fan RPM code written by Crenn@thebestcasescenario.com

// http:/themakersworkbench.com http://thebestcasescenario.com 


volatile int NbTopsFan;        ​//measuring the rising edges of the signal

int Calc; 

int hallsensor = 2;                ​//The pin location of the sensor


void rpm ()                        ​//This is the function that the interupt calls

{

  NbTopsFan++;                      ​//This function measures the rising and falling edge of signal

}                                  ​//The setup() method runs once, when the sketch starts


void setup() 


{

pinMode(hallsensor, INPUT);        ​//initializes digital pin 2 as an input

Serial.begin(9600);                ​//This is the setup function where the serial port is initialised

attachInterrupt(0, rpm, RISING);  ​//and the interrupt is attached

}

​// the loop() method runs over and over again

​// as long as the Arduino has power

void loop () 

{

NbTopsFan = 0;                    ​​//Set NbTops to 0 ready for calculations

sei();                            ​​ ​//Enables interrupts

delay (1000);                      ​​​//Wait 1 second

cli();                            ​//Disable interrupts

Calc = (NbTopsFan * 60 / 7.5);    ​​//(Pulse frequency x 60) / 7.5Q = flow rate in L/hour

Serial.print (Calc, DEC);        ​​//Prints the number calculated above

Serial.print (" L/hourrn");      ​//Prints "L/hour" and returns a new line
