Hemet, CA—March 9, 2017—With its breakthrough ExactRead™ technology, the new all-in-one FlowConnect™ from McCrometer automates data collection for the Mc Propeller and Water Specialties meters to provide accurate, reliable information for irrigation and water resource management.
Featuring a streamlined design, FlowConnect includes powerful next-generation built-in communications for transmitting accurate, reliable irrigation flow data. This innovative design eliminates cables, pole mounting, solar panel (optional), and other components – removing unnecessary costs and improving data quality by reducing opportunities for noise interference or cable damage.
FlowConnect’s intelligent ExactRead technology – available with the digital register option – ensures the flow reading on the meter’s register in the field and the data remotely viewed on the web are always the same. Flow data is generated and transmitted directly from the meter register—so there’s no communication of raw pulse data that can lead to confusion or guesswork.
Growers, irrigators and regulators will find that FlowConnect transforms the agricultural industry’s most popular flow meters into wireless data collection tools for sustainable agriculture. They can help reduce water consumption, optimize irrigation applications, ensure water billing accuracy, meet regulatory allocations and more.
Manual irrigation data collection is expensive, time consuming and prone to errors that can affect operational costs and profitability. Automatic meter reading with FlowConnect provides dependable, affordable remote wireless access to flow data, including flow rates, totalizer readings, and daily, weekly, or seasonal water use records.
The economical FlowConnect comes pre-installed when ordered with new Mc Propeller and Water Specialties flow meters. Existing meters can be retrofit with FlowConnect in less than 30 minutes. Set-up is simple, fast and requires no special tools.
The FlowConnect system is housed in a rugged IP67 enclosure for operation in extreme environments from -22 to 158°F (-30 to 70°C). It supports growers from the frigid plains of North Dakota to the frying heat of the Coachella Valley in Southern California.
