These new sensors use innovative, low-power, Long-Range (LoRa technology) wireless communications to remotely measure and monitor water, wastewater and groundwater systems including water pressures, flows, levels and rainfall volumes.
LoRa for Smart Water IoT Applications
The Telog 41 Series sensors leverage LoRa technology to operate on LoRaWAN wireless networks which enables seamless interoperability among IoT sensors without the need for complex local installations to enable the rollout of IoT applications such as the monitoring of water pressures, water levels, rainfall and metered flow volumes.
The Telog 41 Series include:
● Pressure Monitoring: The Telog PR-41 Pressure Recorder provides utilities with visibility of their water system pressures ensuring that they can operate the network to meet customer needs, regulatory requirements and manage NRW.
● Level Monitoring: The Telog WL-41 Level Recorder allows utilities to monitor water levels of underground aquifers, reservoirs and water towers, ensuring that they have a real-time view of the water resources available and stored within their network.
● Flow Monitoring: The Telog MTU-41 Meter Telemetry Unit enables utilities to monitor water flows in their system by collecting the values from a flow meter register and reporting the computed interval flow volume. The Telog MTU-41 ensures that the utility has an up to date view of flows, while improving efficiencies with the elimination of manual reads.
● Pulse/Event Monitoring: The Telog PE-41 Pulse Event Recorder enables the monitoring of meter devices such as flow meters within the network. By retrofitting the Telog PE-41 to existing mechanical meters (e.g. flow meters) in the network, the utility can gain near real-time data on parameters such as flow that were not previously possible, while driving efficiencies by removing the need for manual reads.
● Rainfall Monitoring: The Telog RG-41 Rain Gauge allows utilities to continuously gather data on rainfall within their service area. The Telog RG-41 monitors the output of a tipping bucket rain gauge and reports the rainfall intensity so utilities can understand the intensity and distribution of rainfall and its potential impact on their network.
