MOBILTEX RELEASES GCRTECH PFL1 — PORTABLE PRESSURE/FLOW DATA LOGGER CERTIFIED FOR USE IN NORTH AMERICA AND ENGINEERED FOR EXTREME CONDITIONS

Multiple input pressure/flow data logger with cellular connectivity — waterproof and submersible with long-life battery power available in a variety of configurations — highly flexible and ready to satisfy the most challenging site conditions.

The PFM1 / PFM1-A data loggers have up to 8 data files for monitoring a range of analogue and digital signals and benefits from the latest advances in cellular communication.

These advanced devices utilize a unique data logging architecture that can detect pressure surges and measure minimum night flow more accurately using Pulse Interval Timing [PIT]. The loggers allow users to analyze data in greater detail than currently available with traditional loggers. These powerful features enable additional fast logging, such as step testing, without interfering with the main 15-minute recordings.

PFM1 / PFM1-A data loggers store data in non-volatile memory organized into data files. Each data file is an independent data logger with its own logging parameters. More than one data file can record different types of data for the same input channel. Different types of data include Average, Instantaneous, Minimum, Maximum, etc.

Communications via 4G/5G LTE CAT M1 and NBIoT cellular options deliver industry-leading backhaul connectivity while still offering 2G options for legacy systems.

GCRTECH GTRI APPLICATIONS:

  • DISTRICT AND ZONE MONITORING
  • NETWORK MODELLING
  • PRESSURE SURGE DETECTION
  • FLOW & PRESSURE MONITORING
  • PRV PERFORMANCE MONITORING
  • LOW PRESSURE ALARM – BURST DETECTION
  • RESERVOIR / BOREHOLE MONITORING
FEATURESBENEFITS
Customizable pressure & flow data loggerWith a variety of pressure & flow port configurations, the PFM1 can independently log pressure or flow data while further having the ability to log both parameters at the same time.
Adjustable data logging & sampling rate for enhanced data resolutionAdjustable pressure & flow data sampling rates to fit every job. Sampling rate: 1 second to 15 minutes; Standard Logging rate: 5 seconds [portable]/1 minute [cellular] to 24 hours
Comprehensive data-type loggingGives users the choice to simultaneously or independently log a wide selection of data types, including maximum, minimum and average pressure.
Digital data transfer via cellular communicationOperating on a variety of cellular bands (2G, 4G/5G LTE CAT M1 or ), the PFM1 can transmit data from virtually any location with cell coverage. This helps improve the quality & frequency of data collection while also reducing the need for field staff to undertake time consuming, potentially dangerous field trips.
Communication Versatility The PFM1 is available as either a non-communicating, portable unit or a fully telemetric cellular comms unit. Additionally, portable units can be field-upgraded to cellular on the fly.
Built-in digital displayCycles through logger parameters to provide at-a-glance information to users without the need to connect to a computer
Engineered for the fieldMeticulously designed to withstand the harshest environments (-20 to 70 degrees C, -5 to 160 degrees F)
IP68 waterproof ratingThe PFM1 will continue to operate even when completely submerged in water or when exposed to dusty/dirty/sandy environment
Robust battery lifeField-replaceable batteries with 5+ years of life under normal operating conditions
Internal memory bankThe addition of 8 separate data files ensures that any data transmitted from the field is further backed up on the internal PFM1 memory
