The NexSens G2-FLOW is a complete flow monitoring solution with integrated data logger, cellular modem, and battery. The user selects either a FloWav Pipeline PSA-AV area velocity sensor or an APG PT-500 pressure transducer for flow monitoring. The FloWav Pipeline PSA-AV sensor is a fully integrated area velocity flow sensor that combines proven pressure depth and continuous wave Doppler velocity technologies with innovative sensor level signal processing for improved sensor accuracy and stability. The APG PT-500 is a rugged pressure transducer designed for highly accurate water level measurements. The PT-500 can be used to measure flow rate by utilizing a user entered lookup table.

G2-FLOW can be configured directly from any web browser without the need for costly site visits and complicated connections. The system wirelessly transmits flow data to WQData LIVE’s cloud-based data management platform at user-defined intervals. Paired with WQData LIVE’s configurable alerts, users can be automatically notified of elevated flow rates or other anomalies directly on a mobile device or computer. Historical data can be viewed, graphed, and downloaded from WQData LIVE for additional analysis.

The G2-FLOW was designed for simplicity. The integrated battery can last up to 5 months in a typical application with the option to double the life by installing a second battery pack. This removes the need for frequent site visits or complicated solar powered setups. The integrated cellular modem with bundled NexSens hosted service provides real-time communication without the complexities of setting up a cell account. 

*To ensure reliable data transmission, confirm the availability of Verizon 3G service at deployment location.

Questions & Answers

| Ask a Question
Can this product be used in a Flood Alert System?
Yes, this product's real-time updates and configurable alarms make it great for warning users of flood situations.
Can I provide my own cellular data service?
No, in order to simplify the setup process, the Verizon cellular account must be setup by NexSens.
Is a paid subscription to WQData LIVE required to use this product?
No, the required WQData LIVE subscription cost is bundled into the Verizon cellular data price, so a separate subscription is not required.
Are the batteries user replaceable?
Yes, the user can purchase replacement battery packs and install themselves.
Can this product be used in portable monitoring applications?
Yes, the simple design and modular nature of this product allow it to be used in permanent, semi-permanent, or portable monitoring applications.
Do I need to purchase an additional cellular antenna?
No, it comes with an antenna integrated into the top of the device.
Does the product come with a sensor?
No, in order to allow customers to choose between measurement methodologies, the sensor is not bundled into the product. Users may select from a PSA-AV Area Velocity Sensor or a PT-500 Pressure Transducer.
In what situations can a pressure transducer alone provide flow data?
In order to measure flow using only a pressure transducer's level measurement, the user must provide a rating curve table that gives typical flow values at various depths. This method of flow measurement typically requires a weir or periodic spot sampling in order to create an accurate table.

Underground Water Flow Prediction Models Improving

Researchers at Missouri University of Science and Technology are working to improve predictions of underground water flow , according to a release. Their efforts are aimed at making predictions better despite porous terrain or the existence of channels running through an area. The method is based on the flows of water and waterborne pollutants as they wash through rocks and soil and involves three main steps. Scientists first develop and analyze a mathematical model. From there, a numerical method helps to form a simulation. And then some help from the university’s engineers makes it possible to process porous flow. Work on the simulations is ongoing.

Upper Colorado River Gets Most Streamflow From Groundwater

The Colorado River is one of the most over-allocated rivers in the world, meaning that everyone living along or near its banks depends on its water. So figuring out how to safeguard this incredibly valuable resource for the future, wrought with more demand and perhaps less supply, is critical. Researchers with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) conduct a lot of work around the river, and have a special interest in tracking its flows. This is clear thanks to the number of stream gages the agency has deployed along the Colorado River’s banks. But those gages can only go so far, showing what is happening on the river at the moment, and USGS scientists have an eye toward the future health of the Colorado River.

FloWav Pipeline PSA-AV flow meter resists ragging

For professionals who use meters like the FloWav Pipeline PSA-AV to measure water flowing through mains or sewers, the job is often a dirty one. As a dirty job, there’s even a slang term for all the debris - organic or not - that gets stuck to cables and other devices during deployment: “ragging.†One feature on the new PSA-AV flow meter may help some professionals by cutting down on the sticky debris. “Our sensor cable is the smallest diameter cable manufactured on these sensors today,†said Kelly Abercrombie, director of sales and marketing at FloWav. The smaller cable also makes the PSA-AV easier to install.
