KROHNE Introduces WATERFLUX Electromagnetic Bulk Water Meter
Battery powered meter transmits flow rates to Internet or cellular telephones
KROHNE, Inc. introduces the WATERFLUX electromagnetic water meter that sets new standards with its high sampling rate and long battery life. This GSM-capable water meter can remotely transmit flow rate readings using the Internet or cellular telephone.
The WATERFLUX water meter delivers all the advantages of mechanical water meters while offering an elegant solution for traditionally problematic applications, such as water with suspended particles, bi-directional metering, or flow metering for pipe sizes larger than DN 300. Its unencumbered measuring path makes WATERFLUX superior to traditional water meters with respect to pressure drop and long-term stability, which are affected by the mechanics of conventional meters. The WATERFLUX is competitively priced and requires minimal maintenance as compared to standard mechanical meters, providing for a low cost of ownership.
The WATERFLUX water meter features a built-in compact module that includes a data logger and a GSM transmitter designed especially for use in remote pipes or shafts. The data logger stores all flow data, including peak values and low flow rates during nighttime operation. Data is transmitted via SMS or GPRS to the nearest transmission tower,and from there to an internet or cellular phone network server.
