Analytical Technology Inc.’s MetriNet system helps determine water quality for incoming water flows, with water quality measurements along the way.

MetriNet is a unified system for monitoring water quality at remote sites and then transmitting the data for web-based storage or directly to a customer site. Ideal for use in clean water distribution systems, the MetriNet system’s key feature is flexibility. Derived from network metrics, the system enables users to assemble monitoring units that fit their individual site requirements. The data is then stored in a standard .CSV file format for easy manipulation with Excel or other programs.

Individual smart sensors called M-Nodes take the measurements. These devices are a complete sensor and monitor in one miniaturized package. The M-Node sensors are available for a variety of water quality parameters such as free chlorine, total chlorine, turbidity, pH, conductivity and oxidation reduction potential (ORP).

MetriNet is a multi-parameter monitoring system for monitoring water quality at remote sites and then transmitting the data for web-based storage or directly to a customer site.

Each sensor is inserted in its own flow chamber and individual chambers clip together to form a flow system of the size required. Simple quick-release collars provide easy assembly and disassembly.

Integrated into the flow assembly is a device that controls the flow of water through the flow assembly at a constant 0.2 LPM. The flow system is normally operated with an inlet pressure of about 50 psi (3.3 bar) but is rated to 100 psi (6.6 bar). The fixed flow regulator will keep flow constant regardless of inlet pressure.

Since not all remote sites have the same power availability, the MetriNet system allows users to operate in either full-power or low-power modes. The MetriNet system is economic to purchase, flexible for your individual use and provides long-term accuracy and reliability for all your monitoring needs.
