Sensus, a specialist in water metering solutions and a precursor to smart water networks in the Middle East, has unveiled its new ultrasound static water meter, Cordonel, that has been designed to help achieve a smarter utility network. An extremely versatile metering system, Cordonel helps users manage distribution networks more efficiently, thereby contributing to better water resource management, through accurate and reliable data.
Sensus is showcasing Cordonel, along with its suite of innovative solutions, at WETEX 2019, taking place from October 21 to 23 in Dubai. Ideal for any commercial and industrial application – from water distribution supply to irrigation management – the innovative new technology offered by Cordonel will help support the key pillar of the UAE’s Vision 2021 agenda – to be the best in the world at preserving water resources.
Cordonel is an intelligent response to two of the major challenges that network managers face including lack of hyper-accurate metrology to detect the smallest leaks, and the lack of a connected meter that communicates critical network data in real-time. By addressing these, it will not only help address leakage and save costs, but also enable managers to optimise daily maintenance to increase the uptime of the network.
Francois Frigaux, Regional Director, Middle East and North Africa, Sensus, said: “Here in the Middle East, water is one of the most critical resources to be preserved. As a Xylem brand, Sensus has a strong footprint in the region, enabling our customers to achieve higher levels of operational efficiency and productivity for their assets. Cordonel is a revolutionary innovation that will enable water utility networks to draw on rich real-time data for unprecedented insights on water usage. This will help users to achieve higher savings through the close monitoring of consumption patterns as well as the various patterns in the distribution network. Cordonel will support the UAE’s focus on sustainable development, especially in the management of water resources, through both supply and demand side insights.”
Sensus has already achieved strong results through its static meter for residential applications, including iPERL, which is deployed extensively in the region. With Cordonel, the commercial and industrial static water meter, Sensus is expanding its smart offering, set to benefit potential customers ranging from irrigation and landscape firms to water utilities, via building services, large commercial properties and industries. Any water network manager interested in the smarter management of water resource stands to benefit from Cordonel.
