Leak noise identification with added sound file listening and remote correlation modes
Milford, OH (September 27, 2016) – FCS introduces the next generation of its popular Permalog leak noise logger. The PCorr+ continues to enable water suppliers to quickly locate leaks in a water network, now with advanced features such as remote leak noise sampling and listening, and correlation between loggers.
PCorr+ loggers are installed magnetically on pipe fittings throughout a distribution system, and continuously monitor for leak noise. If leak noise is identified, the unit immediately enters an alarm state, transmitting a radio signal to indicate a leak condition.
Data from PCorr+ loggers is gathered via drive-by data collection with the new Patroller 3 USB radio receiver, designed to work with both PC and handheld devices. PCorr+ has improved surveying speed, enabling fast radio download of new data, including a sample of the leak noise for secondary validation. The loggers also feature a correlation mode that allows users to calculate the precise location of a leak without a separate leak noise correlator.
PCorr+ loggers are capable of permanent, semi-permanent, or “lift and shift” rapid deployment and collection. The unit features a 5-year battery life, and automatic download of up to one month of leak noise history.
