NivuLog SunFlow Flow Meter

Part No. NLM0SUNFLOW

Solar-powered for full and partial filling

Self-sufficient measurement station with integrated data transmission via GPRS. For discontinuous flow measurement in slight to heavily polluted media

  • Solar-powered flow measurement station independent from mains power
  • Extremely robust and compact IP68 enclosure 
  • Solar panel protected by armoured glass 
  • Integrated rechargeable buffer battery and charging control 
  • Direct connection of sensors using encapsulated terminal housing 
  • Adjustable measurement and transmission cycles 
  • Storing, processing, indication and calculation of measurement data using D2W – Internet portal Device to Web

    The NivuLog SunFlow is a self-sufficient, solar-powered flow measurement station independent from mains power with integrated GPRS data transmission. The discontinuous flow measurement is suited for slight to heavy polluted media in open channels, flumes as well as in part filled and full pipes.

    The NivuLog SunFlow is designed for flow measurement, storage and transmission of data in locations without mains power supply. The very robust aluminium cast enclosure with IP68 protection is covered with armoured glass and contains all necessary components such as data logger, modem, charging control and rechargeable batteries. Thanks to the compact construction it is perfectly suited for use in free and rough terrain. A Doppler flow velocity sensor type KDS with optional integrated level measurement is connected directly to the system.

    Moreover there are 4 multifunctional inputs (analog/digital) available. These inputs allow to connect e.g. external level measurements or float switches for measurement release. Readings are saved in free adjustable cycles and are transmitted to the data recording system "Device to Web" via GPRS. The measurement place parameters can be set via D2W as well. This allows a quick start-up. The NivuLog Sun Flow represents an interesting and cost-efficient alternative to the conventional control cabinet with solar panel.

    Typical NivuLog SunFlow applications

    Flow measurement in stormwater tanks, channel networks, irrigation channels, mine water cleaning plants, natural streams etc.
