Flow Monitoring Systems
The unique MACE XCi smart monitoring systems provide flexible and expandable site monitoring housed in rugged lockable enclosures. Battery, solar panels, and multiple card interface enable the user to control and log multiple sensors remotely from a single XCi device.
Measures flow as well as conductivity, pH and rainfall, and can utilize a downward looking ultrasonic depth sensor to measure pond levels.
Monitors inputs as diverse as irrigation flows, farm wastewater flows, water quality, dam levels, soil moisture, and pump/engine management systems.
Monitors inputs ranging from flumes and weirs, water quality sensors and rainfall gauges, drinking water flows (leak detection), and weather stations.
FloSeries3 Cards for XCi Devices
The XCi (multiple-card interface), developed by MACE for the FloPro, AgriFlo, HydroMace, and HVFlo devices, allows the user to connect a vast array of environmental sensors. Users can install any combination of the MACE FloSeries3 cards in the five card slots available in an XCi device. This allows tailoring the device to your exact monitoring requirements.
Provides the input for connecting MACE Doppler ultrasonic velocity sensors.
I/O (input/output) Card
Supports seven sensor inputs and four control outputs including 4-20mA, voltage and digital.
Pulse I/O Card
Powers (+5VDC or + 12VDC) a single pulsing flow sensor and provides a pulse output.
MACE Doppler ultrasonic sensors for XCi devices transmit an ultrasonic (sound) wave into the flow. This sound wave is reflected by acoustically reflective particles (e.g. air bubbles, suspended solids), and the instrument detects these reflected frequencies. The difference between the transmitted frequency and the received frequencies is directly proportional to the velocity of the stream flow.
Doppler Ultrasonic Insert Velocity Sensor
Measures velocity and requires access to the outside wall of the pipe in which the sensor is to be mounted.
Doppler Ultrasonic Velocity Sensor
Measures velocity in full pipes when access to the pipe is available and the pipe can be emptied when installation/maintenance is required.
Doppler Ultrasonic Area/Velocity Sensor
Measures depth (using a capacitive pressure diaphragm) and velocity. Access to the monitoring point is required for installation and maintenance.
