Hidroconta, a manufacturer of water meters, hydraulic valves and remote control systems, is an internationally operating water management service provider. Its range of meters includes the Centinel water meter.
Centinel is a drinking water flow meter perfect for domestic water systems, designed to measure clean water up to 50°C. Its high precision, which eliminates possible deviations caused by foreign particles, and low starting flow rates (1 l/h), make it easy to detect water leaks, thus saving water.
In addition, the Centinel meter includes a high-resolution alphanumeric display and has an internal battery with a useful life of more than twelve years of operation.
Its installation allows the placement of elements at the inlet and outlet of the meter while maintaining its precision and readings at low flow rates, and its characteristics allow the flow meter to be placed in places with little space.
Centinel: technology at the service of water
The Centinel meter uses ultrasonic technology, so it works without internal moving parts. The equipment has a multi-line 9-digit LCD that is accurate at very low flow rates, down to 1 l/h.
Centinel includes a high-resolution alphanumeric display and has an internal battery life of more than twelve years of operation.
Thanks to Centinel, data is recorded hourly, daily, monthly and stored in the meter's internal memory and can be read remotely thanks to the its built-in communications technology, such as LoRa Wan, wMBus, NB-IoT compatible with data integration and visualization from the Demeter platform.
Drinking water approvals
The Centinel flow meter has all the relevant certificates for installation in water supply networks such as those in buildings and housing developments, and exceeds the metrological requirements of the regulations below, so they are normally used to totalise and control domestic water consumption:
- MID 2014/32/EU.
- OIML R49.
- Scope of the RoHS directive.
In addition, Hidroconta performs strict tests on the meters to ensure their quality and precision.
