Water Monitoring Systems - Monitor Water Levels, Water Usage, and Flow Meters for Ground Water Resources Management
- How much water are you, your organization, or your clients using?
- What's the fluid and water levels in the distant reservoirs, tanks, and water wells?
- How fast are your fluids and water flowing? What are the gallons per minute rates on the remote flow meters?
- It's hard, but necessary to monitor water for effective water resources management
These are critical remote monitoring and Industrial IoT challenges that are solved by this Valarm Industrial IoT package! You can easily answer these with the hardware in this kit and Tools.Valarm.net.
Have a look at this water dashboard where you and your teams can view the following information on any device with a web browser, historically and in real-time:
Do you, your teams, or your organization need remote water monitoring systems?
Please don't hesitate to contact us at Info@Valarm.net if you've got any questions.
This Industrial IoT kit has just what you need for telemetry to remotely monitor water levels, volumes, flowmeters, and depths.
All telemetry data is sent to Tools.Valarm.net using a Sensor Hub, which is a WiFi sensor hub in this kit. However, you can easily use a 3G, GPRS, GSM or Ethernet sensor hub and make your own custom water monitoring system kits.
Here's the list of items you get with this kit that will let you monitor your remote water assets in real-time with Tools.Valarm.net:
- WiFi Sensor Hub for Industrial IoT
- Enclosure - snap-together box for WiFi Sensor Hub
- 4-20 mA sensor adapter
- PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) sensor adapter
- 2x Enclosure for 4-20mA & PWM sensor adapters
- 2x USB OTG Micro B to Micro B Cable
- Micro USB to Full Size USB Cable
Note: You'll need to get a wall charger, lead acid or lithium ion battery, or another power source (e.g., solar power) to provide 5V power via Micro USB to your Sensor Hub. A standard phone or tablet charger works fine for setting this up.
Have a look at this write-up for details on how to wire up this water monitoring kit to add telemetry to your fluid or water assets.
For each water asset, e.g., water well, reservoir, pond, or tank, a 4-20mA sensor adapter connects to your pressure transducer / water depth level sensor. For example, a 4-20mA pressure transducer made by In-Situ or Flowline.
A PWM sensor adapter connects to each of your flow meters and counts the pulses / ticks that are counted by the Valarm Tools Cloud totalizer. Connect the PWM sensor adapter to your flow meters that output pulses / ticks. Your flowmeters can be from your favorite sensor manufacturers like McCrometer, Foxboro, or EKM Metering.
Again, please see this write-up for details on how to wire up this kit to monitor your water.
Deploy the Valarm unit as is or put it in a box/housing of your choice. That's it! Easy enough?
The video above shows you how to integrate your Sensor Hub with Tools.Valarm.net to map, graph, analyze, download, and forward your sensor data in real-time.
Note that Valarm compatible GPRS sensor hubs, 3G GSM sensor hubs, and Ethernet sensor hubs are available. One of those may be a better fit for your scenario, depending on what your easiest internet connectivity is at each of your deployment locations!
