Aquadata Fluvia RC3 Gold System portable electromagnetic water velocity meter FV10003

RM 0.00


The FLUVIA electromagnetic water velocity meter is a portable device that measures the velocity of water to determine its flow. The user interface for the FLUVIA has been designed to be as simple as possible enabling users to quickly and effectively take accurate velocity measurements. Includes meter, velocity probe, 6x 316 stainless steel rods, and carrying case.

The FLUVIA RC3 flow meter is a portable electromagnetic device that measures the velocity of water to determine its flow.    

Its hydrodynamic shape and small probe size permits measurements close to a fluid surface, channel bed or pipeline wall, and with no moving parts, it does not retain debris - guaranteeing accuracy and reliability.    

The FLUVIA RC3 can be tailored to the users ideal setup, meaning the units, date and time, language and data logging methods are easily changeable. An optional extra of GPS is also available which would auto set the time as well as provide accurate location information for each data point.    

The FLUVIA RC3 is also capable of generating a computed river flow profile, allowing more detailed analysis of a river.
