Licensed Telemetry Radios are commonly used as the communications medium for municipalities, water corporations water management systems. The systems, available from RF Innovations , require real time control of pumps and valves to be installed within the trunk main networks to achieve an efficient water supply and to manage waste water, drainage systems and fluctuations in performance and usage.
A broad network of points throughout the metropolitan system must be monitored and managed within an area of a few hundred square kilometers. These points include reservoirs, valves, pump stations, pressure monitors and flow detectors. Narrow band licensed telemetry radio systems are used to provide communications to the necessary locations while coordination of the water system is achieved through
