Power flow and cycle option empower flowmeters for remote water measurement applications
Jul 20 2021
Nivus has now upgraded their NivuFlow Series of flowmeters to include an optional cycle or interval operation. This enables a significant reduction in energy consumption in comparison to operating continuously. This is hugely beneficial to users of flowmeters that are in permanent operation with no mains power available because the self-sufficient power supply will allow them to run the device with considerably less power. The compact power unit is simple to install and operate and with measurements made at 15 minute intervals uses only 10% of the energy compared to continuous use. The NivuFlow can therefore be powered via solar cell, wind generation or compact, buffer batteries to take flow measurements anywhere across Europe and the need for visits to re-power the device are reduced by approximately 90%.
Thanks to integrated Nivus Connectivity, users can simply call for measurement data from their workplaces or remotely at any time. This further reduces the need to visit the measuring point to a bare minimum.
In cases of significant events, such as when a pre-determined level is exceeded, the measurement system switches to event operation. This gives operators the choice of shorter, individually adjustable measurement cycles or continuous operation. The user can therefore generate high-resolution measurement data when critical events happen, thus providing a dependable database for measurement data analysis.
For older NivuFlow devices, Nivus offers interval operation via a firmware update. They recently launched their NivuParQ 850 measurement system for TSS-equivalent which comes with the option of future cycle operation.
The updated flowmeters are ideal for use in rainwater overflows, transfer measuring points in sewer networks and measurements in rivers and irrigation systems.
