A flow meter in the telemetry unit , monitors the volume of water passing through the filter.
In addition to the flow meter, the TDS is monitored too, to measure any changes in the particle content of the water.
This means that using these two parameters the telemetry can recommend when a water filter should be changed , based on volume and quality of the water passing through it.
The device will fit within the space currently provided for existing water filtration equipment.It is battery powered and uses 2G technology, so will be totally self-contained and require no interface with any equipment. A 4G variant is in testing and a further 5G model is under development.
Telemetry is monitored via a customer portal with exception based reporting highlighting 30 days, 7 days and expiration of a water filter, removing any need for staff on site to read or understand a digital head
Water filters will be changed exactly when they need to be, based on realtime information on water volume and quality, communicated via the telemetry attached to the filter.
