    Angle Transmitter  - Overview

    This angle transmitter contains an internal pendulum encoder that uses gravity. This converts the inclination into an output signal to deliver high precision angle measurements. Applications include:

    • Determining the sliding gate position of radial, tainter, crest, weir, slide, roller, sluice, lock gates, etc.
    • Determining the valve position of flap valves, ball valves, shut-off valves, etc.
    • Monitoring the orientation of sliding gates
    • Determining slewing crane positions, drawbridge angles, etc.

    Angle Transmitter  - Features

    • High precision angle measurements
    • Optimal water supply regulation without additional gear or linkage
    • Suitable for harsh environments
    • Absolute position available immediately after power on
    • Maximum investment protection
    • Can easily migrate to new generation
    • Various encoders and interfaces available

    Dam Level Measurement - Overview

    This system is used for high precision level measurement, volume calculation, and hydrostatic or pneumatic pressure measurement.

    This can be installed pneumatically or hydrostatically. Pneumatically, the sensors measure the counter-pressure produced by an air compressor, thus having no direct contact with the water. Hydrostatically the sensor comes into direct contact with the water.

    This cost-saving system optimises the water balance measurement. It does multi-point measurement with one controller.  It is also highly durable and maintenance-free (no recalibration required). A normal web browser is used to connect to the instrument.

    Thermal compensation with a quartz crystal temperature signal is used to counteract sensor performance when the sensor efficiency is affected by temperature fluctuations.

    Dam Level Measurement - Features

    • Up to four measurement sections per Controller
    • Transmitters for hydrostatic or pneumatic pressure measurement
    • 100% thermal compensation with quartz crystal Temperature signal
    • Very accurate calculation of storage water volume: resolution < 1 mm H2O
    • Excellent accuracy of typical < 0.01% FS (quartz crystal sensing element)
    • Superior stability - near-zero drift of sensing technology
    • IEC 60870-5-104 and Modbus communication
    • Fits to all standard PLC’s
    • Controller with built-in web server for easy configuration
  • Rotary Transmitter | RIPOS

    Rotary Transmitter - Overview

    Using an absolute multi turn transmitter (shaft), this system converts each rotation of the shaft to measure position, distance and level. Applications include:

    • Monitoring the orientation of sliding gates
    • Determining the sliding gate position of radial, weir, slide, roller, tainter, crest,  sluice, lock gates etc.
    • Determining the valve position of flap valves, shut-off valves, ball valves, etc.
    • Managing water volume and level
    • Determining slewing crane positions, drawbridge positions, etc.

    Rotary Transmitter - Features

    • Absolute position is available immediately after power-on
    • Rotary encoders allow for optimal water management regulation
    • Vibration-resistant
    • Suitable for harsh environmental conditions
    • Maximum investment protection
    • Various encoders and communication interfaces available
