Precipitation Measurement with GPRS Transmission

Channel Networks - Fix Installation Measurements


  • Determination of precipitation volumes for billing purposes within a water association consisting of several communities
  • Setup of 7 precipitation measurement spots to detect stormwater volumes
  • Transmission of detected data to central access point via GPRS desired

Definition of tasks

  • Recording the flow rate to the sewage treatment plant
  • Despite changing flow conditions and thus a changing flow profile, the aim is to achieve the most accurate measurement possible


  • Three new rain gauges were addtionally installed. Then each of the 7 measurement stations was equipped with a NivuLog Easy unit for data storage and GPRS transmission.
  • The power supply for the data loggers comes directly from the power supply units for heating the precipitation gauges.
  • The "Device-to-Web" data portal independently creates all required statistics as daily and monthly values and gathers the data in a common spreadsheet. This significantly facilitates overall evaluation.
  • The communities connected additionally get separate access to their readings so that the previously required manual data exchange is no longer necessary.
