Case Study

EXTENDED IoT FEATURE FOR FLOW METER

One of the largest manufacturer of electromagnetic flow meters, water quality sensors and irrigation controllers in Australia and New Zealand.

The customer wanted to nullify the dependency on monopolistic source for supply and engineering, reduce field operations cost in sites where the device was to be deployed and reduce engineering support cost.

Solution Methodology

The NeST Digital team analyzed the existing product and extended support for coming up with new product model with IoT feature. The team developed a low power operation electromagnetic flow meter and wireless communications module to transfer remote field data through cloud network, and the final product had the following features:

  • Enhanced on-board storage to reduce field data collection intervals
  • Enhanced file system on existing controller to support high capacity storage
  • Simplified field diagnostics and configurability to support customer specific parameters
  • Simplified field diagnostics and configurability to support customer specific parameters
  • Field utility for use by field technicians
  • Windows based easy to use configuration
  • Secure role based access
  • Low power operation (Solar)
  • Diagnostic data and alarms
  • User configurable data logging
  • User configurable on/ off times

Impact

Our solution and extended support is helping the customer to get the optimal benefit towards developing their flow meters.
