Product Description

ShortBoard 2000 (Wireless Modem)

FloWav’s Wireless Portable Area Velocity Flow Meter

The ShortBoard 2000 utilizes the Pipeline Model PSA-AV sensor technology and wireless communications for permanent or portable meter applications. The data from this meter is transmitted wirelessly to a server, without the need to be manually downloaded in the field. The options for this flow meter include the use of single or multiple pipeline sensors, ultrasonic down looking depth sensor and extended battery capability.

Simple, Reliable, Proven

The compact and lightweight FloWav ShortBoard 2000 Area Velocity Flow Meter combines proven area velocity measurement technology with proven RTU (Recording Telemetry Unit) technology to provide a cost-effective, accurate and reliable way to measure flow in even the harshest open channel flow applications.

Advanced Measurement Technology

The ShortBoard 2000 comes with the Pipeline PSA-AV sensor, a fully integrated, state-of-the-art area velocity sensor.

The Pipeline PSA-AV sensor combines proven continuous wave Doppler measurement technology with the signal processed utilizing state-of-the-art Progressive Spectral Analyzer * technology to provide an accurate, reliable and low power consumption way to measure velocity for most open channel flow applications.

The Pipeline PSA-AV utilizes a proven ceramic pressure depth sensor, which will not deteriorate in the hostile and corrosive sewer environment.

The ShortBoard 2000 has the capability to utilize either a second Pipeline PSA-AV sensor or a downward looking ultrasonic sensor for improved capability and flexibility when metering in the complex, real world conditions frequently encountered when installing equipment for sewer flow metering.

Wireless Communication

Wireless communication is supported via packet switched cellular (e.g. 1xRTT or GPRS). Multiple antenna options are available, including a burial antenna that may be embedded in the street pavement producing a complete underground wireless monitoring solution.

Communicate Via:

  • Local connection
  • Cellular
  • Land-line telephone
  • Burial antenna option

Low Power Consumption 

The ShortBoard 2000 is powered from a single 6-volt lantern battery providing an operating life of six months to three years, depending on sensor configuration, data sampling and call frequency. An extended life battery option is available.

*PSA – patent pending Progressive Spectral Analyzer technology
