above existing canal wall 

  • Water level is measured directly above ruler in gauging section for accurate flow measurement

  • Innovative equipment design allows for safe and secure installation above canal wall

  • Installation in under 2 hours, even with canal in full operation

Why is it important?

  • Well designed flow gauging structures can have reliable precision of around 5%  

  • Instalación más flexible, en cualquier época del año

  • Flexible installation, during any time of the year

  • Equipo puede cambiarse de lugar en caso de ser necesario

  • Equipments' position can be changed if necessary

  • Less installation time and costs 

  • Avoids problems with operation of stilling well or automatic gates with submerged sensors:​

    • Eliminates accuracy errors in submerged sensors because of sediment accumulation

    • Less maintenance costs  

 

Safety and durability

Quick and safe installation

above existing canal wall 

  • Water level is measured directly above ruler in gauging section for accurate flow measurement

  • Innovative equipment design allows for safe and secure installation above canal wall

  • Installation in under 2 hours, even with canal in full operation

Resistent Anti-Vandalism Design​

  • 3mm thick steel protection shell, with anti-corrosive paint

  • 4mm thick anti-abrasive steel for internal reinforcement, resistant to power tools.

  • Zamak and chrome nickel safe locks.

  • 2mm thick anti-impact polycarbonate cover
    for solar panel protection.

  • Stainless steel anchor bolts for secure installation, secure inside the protection shell

  • Shock detection alarm (in development)

Why is it important?

  • Equipment is generally installed in isolated rural areas, without the possibility of security personnel

  • Equipment is installed outdoors and must last at least 20 years without replacement

  • Vandalism risk is real, particularly in developing countries like Chile 

  • Padlocks, bars or conventional steel can be easily destroyed with portable power tools

precise and reliable data

Reliable and high accuracy sensors 

  • Last generation, high precision RS485 Ultrasonic Sensor. Approximately +-0.5mm accuracy in 2 meter range and 1mm in 4 meter range

  • Each data point is composed of 4 height measurements in 1 minute, which allows to compensate for natural variations

  • Sensors feature temperature compensation and equipment design allows for their operation at room temperature

Why is it important?

  • The value obtained from a telemetry solution investment is largely determined by its operational continuity

  • Being exposed to the elements and isolated increases the possibilities of equipment failure and makes constant online monitoring essential.

  • Capta Hydro's commitment is to offer the best service levels on the market.

adaptability to multiple conditions

CAPTA CFT-MICRO

For electrical power network availability

In certain installation spaces, solar energy may not be an option, which is why we have developed a version that can be connected to the power grid, to a system of solar panels or a set of batteries up  to 50 meters away from the system.

The Capta CFT-Micro version has the same characteristics as the standard Capta CFT equipment.

 

How could your water management improve with a telemetry solution that really works?

The ability to monitor flows remotely and in real time has the potential to be a fundamental tool to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the operation of irrigation canal networks.

 

The installation of multiple telemetry systems along a canal network allows to identify quickly and accurately critical situations such as choke points, water theft or losses, as well as more effective water distribution and data to prioritize investments for infrastructure improvement
