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

TWO DATA LOGGERS IN ONE! CAPTURE PRESSURE AVERAGE AND SURGE DATA IN SEPARATE FILES — WATERPROOF AND SUBMERSIBLE WITH LONG-LIFE BATTERY POWER AND UNIQUE FEATURES THAT FIELD TECHNICIANS DEMAND.

The PFM1-T data logger uses a new data logging architecture that allows the user to monitor pressure input in terms of average values based on typical logging rates plus minimum/ maximum values based on fast sampling rates down to 10 samples/second. PFM1-T transient logger can also detect and log pressure surge data up to 1000 readings per second without interfering with the main recordings.

During threshold logging, the logger checks the pressure signal against the threshold settings 10 times per second and once triggered starts logging data at one of the configured log rate of 10Hz, 20Hz, 100Hz or 1KHz.

Pressure surges are logged and surge data plus the slow logged data is sent via cellular communication for the cellular enabled PRM1-T model or downloaded manually using the USB to IrDA communications cable for the non-cellular enabled model.

If external power is connected the logger can sample pressure at 1KHz continuously, detect and record data at 10Hz, 20Hz, 100Hz or 1KHz before during and after the surge event.

GCRTECH PFM1-T APPLICATIONS:

  • WATER HAMMER
  • PRESSURE MONITORING IN NETWORK
  • HYDRAULIC NETWORK ANALYSIS
  • MONITOR PRESSURE RELIEF VALVES
  • MONITOR PUMPS
  • PIPE FAILURE INVESTIGATIONS
  • PIPE CONDITION ASSESSMENT SURVEYS
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.
Industry-leading high-speed transient event/pressure surge detectionThe PFM1 is the highest-resolution pressure surge logger on the market, capable of taking up to 1,000 readings per second during a transient event.
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
