Simple, Reliable, Proven The compact and lightweight FloWav ShortBoard 1000 Portable 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 1000 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 wav 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 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 1000 has the capability to utilize either a second Pipeline PSA sensor or a downward looking ultrasonic sensor for even more capability and flexibility for metering in complex, hydraulic conditions common to open channel flow monitoring installations. Low Power Consumption The ShortBoard 1000 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 download frequency. An extended life battery option is available. Applications The ShortBoard 1000 is ideal for sewer flow metering, I/I studies, sanitary sewer evaluation surveys, combined sewer overflow (CSO) and NPDES storm water monitoring.
