flowIQ®

Residential water meter

The ideal ultrasonic smart water meter for residential use

Pinpoint accuracy
The flowIQ® is a smart water meter based on the latest ultrasonic technology. The meter has no moving parts and maintains pinpoint accuracy throughout its entire lifetime, which is warrantied for 20 years. 
 
The meter has industry-leading low flow accuracy to ensure that even low flows are measured down to the last drop. This secures fair and correct billing, improves the quality of your data and helps you reduce Non-Revenue Water.
 
Optimize operations and improve customer service
The flowIQ® comes with integrated communication that allows for safe and easy remote reading without any add-on devices. 
 
This means that you can say goodbye to manual meter readings and estimated calculations. You can significantly decrease your data collection time and avoid time-consuming follow-ups on missing or incorrect readings, which only disturbs your end-users. Instead, you can spend your resources on more value-creating customer services.
With the data from the flowIQ®, you are well prepared to handle customer inquiries, and you can give end-users access to detailed information about their own consumption. 
 
More than consumption metering
Intelligent alarms from the meter let you detect leaks and bursts or other irregularities such as tampering attempts or reverse flows quickly and effectively. This limits water loss as well as any collateral damage. 
 
At the same time, flowIQ® enables you to monitor both the ambient temperature as well as the temperature of the water. This forewarns of any risks of bursts due to frost damages or changes in the water quality.
 
Intelligent design and automated production
The flowIQ® is made from 100% eco-friendly and durable composite. The meter is fully watertight and can be installed without any risk of water ingress or condensation in the display. Our fully automated production process ensures consistent quality and hygienic, accurately calibrated meters.

How does an ultrasonic smart water meter work?

flowIQ® is an ultrasonic smart water meter designed for residential installations based on Kamstrup's 25 years of experience with developing and producing static ultrasonic meters.

Connect your meters to the Internet of Things

With a new version of the flowIQ® 2100, Kamstrup presents the first smart meter available in Europe to combine the pin-point accuracy of ultrasonic metering technology with state of the art Sigfox-based communication. 
 
The new meter will be of interest to the many utilities who are looking to base their smart metering strategy on an IoT infrastructure – either because of their business needs or as a part of an overall Smart City strategy. The new flowIQ® 2100 represents a new and innovative but tried and tested solution that takes IoT within smart water metering from theory to concrete reality.

Impressive superior technology

The decision-making process to choose Kamstrup was unique for the City of Dyer, as they had already chosen a competitor’s system. However, once they learned about the superior accuracy of Kamstrup’s ultrasonic meters, the intuitive nature of the remote reading system and the competitive price, “I was obligated to bring Kamstrup’s system to the board for consideration,” said Reed.

Approvals Approvals

flowIQ® 2100 has been subjected to comprehensive type tests with a view to securing a long-term stable, accurate and reliable water meter for household consumption:
 
NSF/ANSI Standard 61 ● AWWA C700 and C708 ● IP68 approved ● FCC Part 15 ●  Approved for drinking water

Production Production

Water meters from Kamstrup are engineered to last with strict production, calibration and testing processes to secure a consistently high quality and an error margin close to 0% in the entire dynamic range. 
 
We do this through:
- A robust construction
- A highly automated production 
- Strict component tolerance management
- Database calibration and adjustment
- Tests of meters in three flow rates across the dynamic range

Hygiene Hygiene

Water quality and the cleanliness of water distribution systems have received increasing attention in recent years as a means of preventing disease caused by water-borne bacteria. 
 
Minimizing the risk of bacterial contamination of the water supply through the water meters requires securing the entire chain from production to installation. Therefore, we consider security and hygiene to be high priorities in both the development and production of our smart water meters. Our meters are approved for use with drinking water and are disinfected, dried and packed in airtight packaging. Moreover, we continuously test for disinfection effectiveness. 

All these steps are carried out to ensure that meters can be installed safely when they leave our production facilities and are not subject to environmental influences before their application.

Design & construction Design & construction

All Kamstrup water meters are static meters based on ultrasonic technology. They have no moving parts and are resistant to both wear and tear as well as minerals or other impurities in the water. 
 
Smaller meters are made from eco-friendly and durable composite while the larger meters are made from eco-friendly stainless steel. Meter houses are vacuum-sealed and fully watertight. The meters are suitable for installations both indoors or outdoors and in meter pits. They can be installed both horizontally and vertically, independent of piping and installation conditions.
