The LevelWizard Open Channel Flowmeter is non-contacting and operates on the principle of timing the echo received from a pulse of sound in air, this provides a highly accurate calculation of flow from the measured head preceding the primary element.
Flow calculations to the British Standard BS3680 are available within the software together with calculations for a wide variety of othern primary elements. Also available within the unit is a customised 32 point calibration routine which also permits the flow measurement of non – standard flumes and weirs.
For channels without primary elements the LevelWizard even offers the facility of connecting a Doppler Velocity Sensor (available from iSOLV) and performing the calculations of Flow Q = Velocity x area for a wide variety of channel shapes.
- The LevelWizard Open Channel Flowmeter can show level, space, distance, head
or flow on the display.
- The relays can be programmed to activate alarms, pump starters, or other control
equipment. There is an isolated 4-20 mA output that can be connected to a chart
recorder or PLC, to monitor level space or distance, independently from that shown
on the display.
- There is an RS232 port, so that the LevelWizard Open Channel Flowmeter can be
operated remotely by a PC or other equipment.
- The LevelWizard Open Channel Flowmeter can be programmed either by the built-in
keypad or byusing the Remote Communicator (optional) or by PC via the RS 232 Serial
- One Communicator can program many iSOLV units.
- All the parameters are stored in non-volatile memory, so are retained in the event of
power interruption. A second backup copy of all parameters can also be retained in the
LevelWizard Open Channel Flowmeter, in case a previous set of parameters needs to be
