The Aqua-Scope water pressure sensor allows you to monitor water pressure using one or two sensors connected by cable. The water pressure is queried 1000 times per second and after a configurable interval it is transmitted to a server by radio. Also configurable threshold values allow alarm messages in case of overpressure or underpressure.
For permanent monitoring, the sensor must be supplied with power via a power supply unit. For periodic monitoring, the device can also be powered by an optional battery block.
The pressure sensor measures the absolute water pressure in the water pipe. It must be installed via a 1/5 inch thread either directly in an inspection opening or via a T-connector to the 3/8 inch connection of an edge valve.
- Connection to Water Pipe: 1/4 inch (G1/4)
- Pressure Range: 0 ... 10 MPa (0 ... 10 bar)
- Acceptable Over Pressure: 20 MPa
- ADC Resolution: 16 bit
- Sample Frequency: 1000 Hz ( one sample every 1 ms)
- Temperature Range: -10 ... + 50 C Celsius
- Water Proof: IP 65
The pressure sensor can communicate with a server via LoRaWAN as a Class A device as well as via WIFI. For Z-Wave an additional option exists. Besides the pressure data, the ambient temperature is also transmitted.
