- General Details
AutoFlow gate is specially designed for combined flow Control and metering application. AutoFlow gate has integrated accurate gate control system, high accuracy flow measurement system, solar based power supply system, communication system integrated Autoflow has inbuilt flow measurement device, level measurement, accurate gate measurement. Autoflow can be operated and monitored on field as a standalone gate or operated remotely from Master Control centre when connected to SCADA network. It is a smart device and uses M2M communication to connect to any TCP IP/SCADA/Internet of things network. The Autoflow gate controls the water discharge by gate operation based on desired set-points, or demand based. SCADA system Autoflow gates are part of the Integrated solution by Mechatronics, designed to improve the irrigation network efficiency, with following objectives
• Timely & equitable delivery to water users
• Efficient water conveyance
• Reduction in operating costs
• Monitoring and control or irrigation network
Control Panel: The Control panel has a LCD display indicating local parameters. Operator can program or operate using this mimic panel suitable for both Local / Remote operation.
- Flow Measurement Technology : The gate has facility to interface with any flow measurement devices.
- The Smart Flow measurement Technology is used for flow measurement. Flow is calculated using upstream level, downstream level & Gate position.
