Flow Interface Makes Integration Easy

Description

WATERFLUX 3070C/F flow instrument is an optional add‐on feature that allows a KROHNE WATERFLUX instrument to easily integrate into an AMR/AMI (automatic meter reading/advanced metering infrastructure) network for secure data exchange of flow data based on the industry standard absolute encoder (UI‐1203) interface.

 

The optionally available UI‐1203 network interface module is installed within the converter electronics for compliance with a wide variety of vendor requirements based on this defacto North American AMR/AMI network standard. That means the WATERFLUX can be connected to most data collection network meter interface units based on this standardized output format. 

 

The WATERFLUX converter is also suitable for alternative communication options, including wide area communications based on available Modbus and GPRS modes. The standard pulse output can also easily interface to SCADA/RTU systems.

 

WATERFLUX is the new standard for water distribution flow metering. Available in 1 to 24-inch diameters with a battery-powered compact or remote converter, the WATERFLUX flow sensor requires no upstream or downstream straight runs for optimal measurement performance. It can be used to replace mechanical meters, including compound meters, without the need for strainers or filters. With no moving parts, there is no drift over time.

 

The robust WATERFLUX 3000 flow sensor comes standard with a stainless steel connection box, making it suitable for long‐duration immersion in flooded metering pits, for example in periods of heavy rainfall. Both the compact and remote version of the IFC 070 signal converter are IP68 rated for installation in measurement chambers with periodic immersion in water to more than 30 feet.
