NIVUS introduce battery-powered system for contactless metering in part-filled channels

The manufacturer’s NivuFlow Mobile 550 detects the flow rate in water by using CW-Doppler-Radar. Latest hydraulic models allow for highly accurate flow measurements within usual channel shapes. Due to sophisticated power management and rechargeable batteries with high capacities the system is perfectly suited for long-term measurements as well as for continuous metering without the appropriate infrastructure. Intuitive operation via 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 enables operators automatic data transmission including options for visualisation and logging in connection with the NIVUS WebPortal. Individual alerting as well as the indication of the remaining operation time in days are the basis 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 interrupt even if the transmitter is flooded permanently (IP68). Explosion protection for ATEX Zone 1 is optionally available. A typical application for the NivuFlow Mobile 550 is flow metering in channel networks, in irrigation channels or in tributaries and generally as soon as no measurement system can be installed in the medium.
