1. A fluid monitoring module comprising:
a flow sensing device including:
a body including an inlet port, an outlet port, an upstream sensor port, a downstream sensor port, and a flow restricting passage disposed between the inlet port and the outlet port, and between the upstream sensor port and the downstream sensor port;
a first fluid sensor assembled with the upstream sensor port; and
a second fluid sensor assembled with the downstream sensor port;
an enclosure; and
a controller disposed within the enclosure and in circuit communication with the first and second fluid sensors for receiving at least one of pressure indicating signals and temperature indicating signals from each of the first and second fluid sensors, and for measuring fluid data based on the received signals;
wherein the flow sensing device body includes a first body member defining the inlet port and the upstream sensor port, a second body member defining the outlet port and the downstream sensor port, and a flow restricting element defining the flow restricting passage and including a first end connection coupled to a first connecting port of the first body member and a second end connection coupled to a second connecting port of the second body member.
