Waterflux 3070 (photo) is said to be the first water meter with integrated pressure and temperature sensors. The meter features simplified installation, integrated diagnostics, a long battery lifetime, remote communication options and low overall maintenance requirements. The updated Waterflux 3070 now offers a mains power option with battery backup and a Modbus RTU communication option for transmission of readings, meter status and alarms. The polycarbonate converter housing with protection class IP68 rating is now standard for both compact and remote versions. The meter features IP68 waterproof plug-and-play connectors that do not require wiring on site, and a small installation footprint to fit into electrical cabinets. The meter can be used for pressure monitoring and maintaining water balance, as well as leak detection when comparison of pressure and flow values is used as the leak-detection method. — Krohne, Inc., Peabody, Mass.
