Overview
The SonTek-IQ Series Acoustic Doppler Flow Meters are ideal for monitoring flows in canals, culverts, pipes, and natural streams. Four velocity beams profile water velocity along both the length and width of the channel, to ensure the best possible coverage and most accurate representation of the velocity field. The built-in pressure sensor and vertical acoustic beam work in tandem to measure water level. Simply input the channel geometry using the intuitive SonTek-IQ software and you are outputting flow data in minutes.

Mechanics
Capable of working both in man-made as well as natural channels, the SonTek-IQ can collect flow (area-velocity) and volume data in as little as 8 cm (3 in) of water. Its five-beam pulsed Doppler design is Modbus, SDI-12, RS232 and Analog ready. The SonTek-IQ installs with limited or no earthworks. With the SonTek-IQ, expect to get quality data for quality decision-making.

The SonTek-IQ Standard, the SonTek-IQ Plus and SonTek-IQ Pipe all operate at 3 MHz. The Standard model works in depths up to 1.5 m (5 ft), while the Plus and Pipe models are ideal for water depths up to 5m (16 ft). The SonTek-IQ Plus/Pipe also incorporates advanced post-processing functions, providing deeper insight into your flow and volume data. All models use SonTek's proprietary algorithm SmartPulseHD.

Benefits

  • Self-contained all-in-one design
  • Proprietary flow algorithms for irrigation canals, natural streams and pipes
  • Uses SonTek's exclusive SmartPulseHD adaptive sampling
  • Self-calibrating water level using vertical acoustic beam and pressure
  • Standard package includes the SonTek-IQ, IQ software, easy mounting hardware, cable, adaptor and power supply
Questions & Answers
Will the SonTek-IQ series acoustic doppler flow meter work in an underwater cave to measure total discharge? Are there minimum/maximum cave dimension limits?
This instrument is designed to measure level and velocity in man-made or natural channels, pipes or streams between 8 cm (3 inches) and 5 m (16 ft) deep. If the dimensional area is known and input in the software, then the instrument can also calculate and output volumetric flow.

Applied Research and Innovative Solutions: Creating CHNGES at Western Kentucky University

Long-standing environmental monitoring programs have the power to support a large number of research initiatives and policy changes—however, actually starting these networks can prove challenging. Not only is starting the program difficult, but keeping things operational for decades to come has also been challenging for environmental professionals hoping to make an impact with applied research. Jason Polk, Professor of Environmental Geoscience and Director of the Center for Human GeoEnvironmental Studies (CHNGES) at Western Kentucky University, is all too familiar with this process.

Combating Water Insecurity in Saskatchewan with Real-Time Data

The prairies of Saskatchewan can be described as one of the least water-secure parts of Canada, making water quality monitoring essential for informed resource management in a region already facing water insecurity. While natural physical properties worsen some of the poor water quality conditions in the region, others are connected to land use. Having grown up spending summers on the shores of Lake Huron, Helen Baulch, an associate professor at the School of Environment and Sustainability at the University of Saskatchewan , has always been dedicated to the protection of water resources. Looking back fondly at her childhood playing along the shore, Baulch also recalls the invasion of quagga mussels during her teenage years and watching the lake change as a result.

Seametrics Turbo Turbidity Logger: Boost your Turbidity Monitoring

The Seametrics Turbo Turbidity Logger is a self-cleaning turbidity sensor capable of internally logging over 260,000 data records. The sensor enables researchers, compliance officers, and contractors to monitor turbidity in various applications, from construction and dredging sites to wastewater effluent.  Due to its narrow width, this device can be deployed in a range of areas, from small well spaces to rivers and streams. The stainless steel housing and built-in wiper allow the sensor to withstand long-term deployments and reduce the need for maintenance trips.  The logger accurately records temperature and turbidity up to a depth of 50 meters.
