A solution for remote monitoring

Technews Industry Guide - Wireless 2015 Industrial Wireless

Access to a reliable source of water is an essential requirement for companies operating in remote areas. Sometimes the infrastructure and management systems provided by companies are also used to supply local communities and rural industries. Therefore measurement of water flows is an essential pre-requisite to monitoring and gaining better understanding of water consumption in networks. As mechanical water meters require a high level of maintenance and have inaccuracies e.g. when measuring large variations in flow rates, electromagnetic water meters are on the rise in water metering applications.

A dedicated solution for remote applications: Waterflux 3070 C is a battery powered, maintenance free electromagnetic water meter that features a unique flow sensor design with rectangular cross-section allowing for a significant reduction of magnetic field excitation. As the coils are arranged so that a strong, homogeneous magnetic field is formed, the measurement is therefore independent of the flow profile and very stable.

This results in a very good low flow performance and allows the operation without inlet and outlet runs. Further, the Rilsan liner of the flow sensor is highly resistant to pressure or vacuum conditions, to corrosion and ageing. An optional data logger and GSM module allows for remote meter reading and wireless transmission of measurement data and status information.
