Data monitoring specialist, Syrinix has introduced its latest smart network monitoring tool, the PIPEMINDER-ONE Acoustic, which combines high-resolution pressure monitoring and leak detection.
This new version of the company’s PIPEMINDER-ONE adds to the existing pressure monitoring capabilities with acoustic monitoring to locate leaks and bursts.
Combined with RADAR, Syrinix’s Cloud analysis platform, the PIPEMINDER-ONE Acoustic locates leaks by triangulating pressure events and sending intelligent alarms to that users can identify and fix potential problems on their network. All data is recorded by a precise time-stamped management information system synced to reliable 4G, 3G, and 2G mobile networks. Units are widely spaced along the distribution network, so fewer PIPEMINDER-ONE Acoustic units are needed to obtain valuable high-resolution data than is required by traditional leak detectors.
PIPEMINDER-ONE Acoustic records pressure at 128 samples per second, generating both transient and summary data, which can be used for triangulation, clustering, classification, and export via an API. The addition of acoustic data from a new, improved hydrophone is used in combination with pressure monitoring to identify a leak position.
