Details

Proven Technology with Innovations
The PSA-AV sensor is a fully integrated area velocity flow sensor, and combines proven pressure depth and continuous wave Doppler velocity technologies with innovative sensor level signal processing for improved sensor accuracy and stability.

Velocity Sensor
The sensor utilizes continuous wave Doppler velocity technology, which has been proven in open channel flow metering applications for over 25 years. The sensor utilizes Progressive Spectral Analyzer (PSA) technology, which improves the quality of the signal, accuracy of the readings, and reduces the power consumption on the batteries.

Level Sensor

The pressure level sensor utilizes a 100% piesoresisitive ceramic pressure sensor, which has been utilized for the first time in the sewer flow metering industry. This technology offers improvements over the previously used pressure depth measurement technologies through a reinforced structure. This enhancement provides more durability in the hostile and corrosive sewer environment. The ceramic sensor ensures high linearity across the entire range of measurement and reduces the effect of Hysteresis (sensor drift). The sensor-to-water interface is a unique Teflon protected membrane that will not puncture or foul from debris in the water.

Signal Processing in the Sensor

The sensor is uniquely designed to process the primary sensor signals within inches of the signal source. This means that all signal processing power is applied to producing the best measurement possible and not utilized to separate “good” signal from electric noise introduced by the sensor cable. The sensor delivers the processed measurements to the data logger over industry standard RS-485 serial communication using Modbus Communication Protocol.

Fit for Duty

The sensor cable is the smallest diameter cable available in the market today. This is important because a smaller cable minimizes the potential to obstruct flow in the pipe. Additionally, thinner cable is easier to manage during installation and maintenance. The cable is terminated with an industry proven connector to ensure no moisture interferes with the transmission of data.

Benthic Macroinvertebrates: Nature's Water Quality Detectives Assisting Scientists

Teeming communities of life inhabit the bottoms of nearly all waterways everywhere. Hidden from most observers, whether by lack of access or lack of awareness, these benthic macroinvertebrates form much of the foundation of any aquatic food web and ecosystem. However, these tiny denizens of the nation's waterways are also a mostly captive audience when it comes to poor water quality; they spend most of their lives in water, and unlike fish, cannot flee pollution or disruption. For this reason, scientists see benthic macroinvertebrates as indicators, nature's water quality detectives.

Citizen Scientists Helping Protect Water Quality and Measure Impact of Climate Change

Researchers today are turning to the community more often in their work to make use of citizen scientists, dedicated volunteers in the community who want to get involved in scientific research. Two recent examples from Michigan, the Oakland County Healthy Lake Initiative and a study concerning botulism deaths of waterfowl on Lake Michigan, prove how effective these collaborations can be. The Oakland County Lake monitoring project Dr. Paul Steen, a watershed ecologist with the Huron River Watershed Council , administers the Oakland County Healthy Lake Initiative as program manager of the Michigan Clean Water Corps (MiCorps) .

Marine Food Webs At Risk Thanks to Climate Change

Both the concept of the food web and the ecosystem are founded on the idea that all species inhabiting a region rely upon each other for survival. Every individual species lives an intimately interconnected existence. An insult to one species typically affects at least those species that rely upon it—and sometimes affects many, many other species in an attenuated ripple outward. Food webs in particular are masses of connected food chains. Each chain represents the direct transfer of energy from one species to another. The tiny autotrophs that harvest energy from things like carbon dioxide and minerals require sunlight energy to function, and these species make up the foundation of the food web.
