USGS Pygmy Meters


USGS Pygmy Meter Model 6205

The Pygmy Meter is scaled two-fifths as large as the standard Type AA current meter. It does not have a tailfin assembly and is used only for measuring shallow streams with the wading rod. Its range of operation is 0.1 to 4.9 feet per second (0.03 to 1.5 meters per second). The 2-inch (5.1 cm) diameter bucket wheel contains six cups; a single contact closure is made each revolution of the bucket wheel. Each pygmy meter is shipped with a carrying case, USGS standard rating table (English or metric), spare parts, screwdriver, instrument oil and cleaning cloth.

USGS Pygmy-MH Meter-Model 6225

The USGS Pygmy-MH meter is a magnetic head current meter with the same basic design as the standard Pygmy meter with the exception of shaft and binding post contact. The Pygmy-MH has a miniature reed switch and magnetic shaft which allows for reduced friction for better low velocity response and produces a cleaner signal for the AquaCalc 5000 and AquaCount. The meter uses the standard Pygmy rating table.
