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.

Acidification May Ease Struggle to Survive for Herring Larvae

Survival in the ocean is no easy task, especially for ichthyoplankton, the eggs and larvae of fish. For most, including herring larvae, once they're released into the water, they're on their own, with survival as their sole goal. Climate change is making that goal more difficult to obtain for many species, but the changes to the marine atmosphere that come along with a warming climate are complex, and they affect various species in different ways. Scientists are still trying to research what some of those differences might look like. Struggle for survival Ichthyoplankton are vulnerable to predators, of course, but they are also highly sensitive to their environment. This means changes in dissolved oxygen levels, temperature, and pH can all be dangerous to fish eggs and larvae.

New Technique for Removing Toxic Heavy Metals from Water

Toxic heavy metals in water are a serious problem all over the world. The World Health Organization (WHO) lists 10 chemicals of major Public Health concern , and four of them are metal or metalloid: mercury , lead, cadmium, and arsenic . WHO also indicates that 2.1 billion people cannot access clean drinking water in their homes, while nearly 1 billion people lack access to clean drinking water at all—and of course those figures will grow more dire as climate change alters the environment and reduces access. However, heavy metals find their way into water in multiple ways. Industrial concerns cause metals to leach into the water supply, either accidentally or by actively dumping waste .

Rising Atmospheric CO2 Levels Affecting Cephalopod Behaviors

Carbon dioxide, CO2, is a waste product for animals, including humans. That means that too much of it can be dangerous. In humans, excessive exposure to CO2 can kill, but in lesser amounts it can also affect the blood's pH level, causing acidemia. Acidemia can cause nerve damage , including hallucinations, delirium, and seizures. Far less is known about the subtler effects of CO2 on cephalopods, but this is in large part because far less is known about cephalopods, generally. However, new research from scientists at James Cook University (JCU) in Australia reveals that rising levels of atmospheric CO2 may cause strange behavioral effects in cephalopods—effects that are likely to be dangerous to them.
