Remote Leak Detection using 3G & GPRS Communications

Remote Leak Detection using 3G & GPRS Communications

By John Watermeyer June 23, 2016


Phocus3m is an acoustic logger that automatically detects leaks on water distribution networks. Deployed underground it utilises low cost GPRS/3G communications without the need for costly above ground technology.

Phocus3m® automatically identifies the presence of a leak. It gives visual indication of leak noise strength and provides confidence factor and also provides rapid leak alarm to a mobile phone or PC.
