Long battery life
OPTIBRIDGE 3880 is the perfect companion for the battery-powered water meter WATERFLUX 3070: the “OPTIBRIDGE 3880 Setup” app for iOS & Android for on-site commissioning and configuration via Bluetooth features configuration templates for Basic IO & Modbus of the water meter. The system is also ideal for installation in flood-prone areas like manholes as it comes in a rugged IP68 rated polycarbonate housing with an integrated battery offering 6 years operating time in typical applications. Typical applications for OPTIBRIDGE 3880 include data logging and transfer of flow, pressure and temperature measurement values from water abstraction wells or water transportation pipelines, wireless communication for water meters in installation areas without power supply, and remote flow monitoring and process control in district metering applications.
