Open Channel Flow Meters
Ultrasonic USI

The USI provides flexible and reliable non-contacting ultrasonic level and volume measurement in a wide range of applications.

The USI Flow is an advanced data logger for monitoring flow and water quality. With the capability to monitor flow alongside water quality measurements, and an integrated input specifically for pH. The USI can replace a number of individual instruments or avoid having to build a custom PLC in a wide range of clean water and waster water applications.

The USI Flow is optimised for use with Smart Storm non-contact Ultrasonic Sensors which are renowned for their high accuracy and durability in open channel flow measurement. Smart Storm Water Quality Sensors can be connected directly to the USI Flow for the monitoring of up to four water quality parameters.

USI Flow sets itself apart from traditional instrumentation by using an intuitive touch screen interface, and displaying real time data and graphs on its 7 inch high resolution screen. This provides the user with unrivaled accessibility and clarity of information, and allows field users to access information instantly. The USI software is as intuitive and simple to operate as a home computer, which makes both programming and operation simple and efficient for engineers and operators.

Intuitive Programming

Programming options are instantly available through tab menus and give clear and precise options. Graphics are used to give clear choices when appropriate and parameter selection is simplicity itself.

Programming pages are separated on the graphics display and once programmed the user can simply and easily review his programme choices on a single display screen.

TFT Full Colour Display

The USI uses a 7” TFT full colour 840×480 display to give sharp images and clear programming screens. In level applications tank shapes are selected from a pictorial map which does away with complicated programme selection as used by other manufacturers.

Relays can be chosen from drop down menus and a graphical simulator is available to enable the user to simulate filling and emptying a tank in order to check his process control choice.
