Permanent network delivers regular leak detection reports to office desktop PC
Milford, OH (February 10, 2010) – Fluid Conservation Systems (FCS) reduces water lost from leaks while saving time, money and labor with the PermaNet wireless network. The network allows immediate responses when leaks are detected, while eliminating the need for municipal water utility maintenance crews to perform site visits and drive-by patrols.
PermaNet works with FCS Permalog leak noise loggers; wireless devices that attach magnetically to pipes and “listen” for noises caused by water leakage. With the PermaNet network, leak reports generated by Permalogs can be sent directly to a customer’s PC or mobile phone. Customers can choose to receive monthly, weekly or daily updates. The system can also be configured to send a leak alert whenever a logger detects a potential leak, enabling a rapid response and minimizing water loss.
PermaNet uses either radio signals or SMS telemetry to transmit reports. The radio version collects data automatically with radio boosters mounted above ground, which then retransmit to the control data hub. SMS versions receive signals from Permalogs with a built in radio receiver, and then transmit the information to the monitoring station via SMS.
