Water Distribution System Pressure Monitoring and Impulse Event Capture Capability

Telog’s LPR-31i line pressure impulse recorder monitors water pressure throughout a water distribution system and captures the waveform of water hammer and negative pressure transient events. In addition to performing the measurement and recording functions of the standard Telog LPR-31, the Telog LPR-31i stores the waveform of captured transients. The Telog LPR-31i can store up to 450 events of variable duration that may occur over many months of on-site monitoring.

The LPR-31i measures water pressure at user programmable rates up to 20 samples per second with internal pressure transducers. The recorder then computes any combination of the minimum, average and maximum values according to your selection of statistics and recording intervals. For example you can measure and store the maximum, minimum and average pressure at 5 minute intervals for more than 90 days.

In addition to trend data recording, the waveform of transient events ranging in duration from a few seconds to many minutes is stored in memory. The waveform of each transient may be viewed on Telog's host application software, Telogers for Windows. Data may be collected from the LPR-31i in the field by a portable PC or Telog's data transfer unit.
