• Reliable and accurate contactless flow measurement for outdoor waterways


Reliable and accurate contactless flow measurement for outdoor waterways

Dec 10 2020

NivuFlow Mobile 550, from Nivus, detects the flow rate in water by using CW-Doppler-Radar. The latest hydraulic models enable highly accurate flow measurements within the usual channel shapes. Due to its sophisticated power management and rechargeable, high-capacity batteries the system is ideal for long-term measurements as well as for continuous metering without the appropriate infrastructure. Intuitive operation via a smartphone or other mobile devices in connection with a start-up wizard enable very quick and easy commissioning of the measurement system.

NivuFlow Mobile is equipped with an integrated LTE modem with worldwide coverage. The manufacturer’s consistent IoT concept provides operators with automatic data transmission including options for visualisation and logging in connection with the Nivus WebPortal. Individual alerting as well as the indication of remaining operation time in days are the cornerstone for precisely scheduled maintenance measures and failure-free measurement operation.

Like the other devices in the NivuFlow Mobile series, the latest device is designed from the ground up for outdoor use. The measurement will not be interrupted, even if the transmitter is flooded permanently (IP68). Explosion protection for ATEX Zone 1 is optionally available. Typical applications for the NivuFlow Mobile 550 are flow metering in channel networks, in irrigation channels or in tributaries and any location where standard measurement system cannot be installed in the medium.
