Hi,

Is it possible to use flow sensor with open collector PNP/NPN output with Keithley model 2701.

Possibly. Can you post a data sheet for the flow sensor?

Pg 10 and 11 in the Operating Manual has the wiring diagrams.

Looks like you will use the 2701 freq measure function with your flow meter pulse signal.
You will also need a power supply.

A pulse counter is probably better suited to the rather low frequencies from a flow meter.
