Water measurement systems & sensors for flow measurement - Water and Wastewater - Water Monitoring and Testing

The recommended type of measurement system will depend on several site-specific factors such as :-

  • Measurement accuracy required – uncertainty, repeatability and temperature stability
  • Type of environment – e.g river, open-channel, irrigation channel, treatment works or urban culvert
  • Deployment details– in instrument hut, road-side cabinet and type of stilling well
  • Range of measurement e.g low-flow only or full range including floods
  • Data collection and maintenance frequency e.g clearance of debris from weirs
  • Remoteness and accessibility of site
  • Protection from vandalism e.g secure compound for rain-gauge and outstation
  • Services – i.e mains electricity and fixed-line comms.

The initial primary consideration is whether your application requires telemetry communications to the remote site and whether any of the following benefits can be derived for your organisation:-

  • Real-time information - automatic capture of the latest measurement plus recent trends
  • Reduced site visits - saving on the cost of data collection from remote sites, plus lower carbon footprint
  • Prioritising maintenance - maintenance visit call-outs with knowledge of current status or problems
  • Alerts of process or compliance failure - alerts of latest trends towards process or compliance failure
  • Automatic warning and call-outs - generating alarm messages to warn staff of key events

ISODAQ telemetry systems are low-cost and very easy to use and configure, enabling you to bring your field data to your desktop PC without needing to operate complex IT infrastructure.
