The Products of Xylem Analytical Instrumentation

The demand for monitoring waterflow is increasing. Climate change and water scarcity issues have increased the demand to quantify increasingly smaller flows from a wider array of environments. Xylem Analytics Norway has a range of instruments from ADCP’s through to magflow meters, for continuous flow monitoring or instantaneous sampling.

Open Channel Flow Meter

SonTek-IQ Series

Ideal for monitoring flows in canals, culverts, pipes, and natural streams, the SonTek-IQ starts with a custom flow algorithm derived from hundreds of field measurements. Four velocity beams profile water velocity in 3-D – both vertically and horizontally – ensuring complete coverage of the velocity field. The built-in pressure sensor and vertical acoustic beam work in tandem to measure the water level. Simply input the channel geometry using the intuitive SonTek-IQ software and you are outputting flow data in minutes.

Capable of working both in man-made as well as natural channels, the SonTek-IQ can collect flow (area-velocity) and volume data in as little as 8 cm (3 in) of water. Its five-beam pulsed Doppler design is Modbus, SDI-12, RS232, and Analog ready. Even better news – the SonTek-IQ installs with limited or no earthworks. With the SonTek-IQ, expect to get quality data for quality decision-making.

  • Self-contained all-in-one design
  • Proprietary flow algorithms for irrigation canals, natural streams, and pipes
  • Uses SonTek’s exclusive SmartPulseHD adaptive sampling
  • Self-calibrating water level using vertical acoustic beam and pressure
  • The standard package includes the SonTek-IQ, IQ software, easy mounting hardware, cable, adaptor, and power supply

The SonTek-IQ Standard, the SonTek-IQ Plus, and SonTek-IQ Pipe all operate at 3 MHz. The Standard model works in depths up to 1.5 m (5 ft), while the Plus and Pipe model are ideal for water depths up to 5m (16 ft). The SonTek-IQ Plus/Pipe also incorporates advanced post-processing functions, providing deeper insight into your flow and volume data. All models use SonTek’s proprietary algorithm SmartPulseHD.

SonTek-SL Series

NEW SL1500/3000 3G MODELS! The SonTek-SL has two new (3G) models turbo-charged by our proprietary SmartPulseHD®, the featured accessories, mounting options, software, and a variety of integration formats ensure it fits your application.

Designed specifically for side mounting on bridges, canal walls, or riverbanks, the SL’s SLEEK, low-profile housing makes installation easy. With three models to choose from, the SL can be used in channels as small as you can jump across to rivers as wide as the Amazon. Ultra narrow beam widths combined with unmatched side lobe suppression provide the SUPERIOR acoustic directivity necessary for achieving maximum horizontal range free of interference from surface or bottom boundaries.

First-time users can collect test data within minutes of receiving the SonTek-SL. Deployments require only a few minutes to configure the SL and start collecting data. This system provides the highest quality Doppler velocity data without requiring the user to become an expert on Doppler technology.


  • Water Velocity and Level: Water velocity, level, flow, and total volume-multiple parameters from one easy-to-use instrument. The acoustic Doppler profile of velocity data and acoustic water level offer the most accurate, reliable measurements.
  • SmartPulseHD®*: An intelligent algorithm that looks at water depth, profiling range, velocity, and turbulence, and then acoustically adapts to those conditions using pulse-coherent, broadband, and incoherent techniques.  Best data possible under any condition.  High-def cell sizes down to 4 cm.
  • Compact, Hydrodynamic Design: Incredibly lightweight and easy to transport and mount.  Slim shape is easy to maintain, stays clean, increases available sample area, and fits into more places.
  • Water Velocity Profiling: Customizeable, flexible setup options to suit a variety of applications. 3G models offer 128 cells for high-resolution and detailed profiles.
  • Acoustic-Pressure “Duo” Water Level (3G models only): Not only redundant sources of water level, the acoustic vertical beam and pressure sensor continually self-check, and pressure data are auto-corrected to keep atmospheric offset negligible.
  • Versatile, Easy Mounting:  Easy-access side mounting reduces concerns over personnel safety, lowers operational costs by avoiding divers and boats, avoids interruption in facility operations, and avoids interruption in data and water delivery to clients and stakeholders.
  • Wave Spectra Option: Integrated pressure sensor calculates and outputs wave height and period, in real-time.

MJK 713 Open Channel Flowmeter

MJK 713 Open Channel Flow Measurement and Registration of water Flow is a converter adaptable to many types of weirs and open channels. The built-in ISO 1438 formulas for flow calculations are preprogrammed with the most common flumes and weirs such as Parshall, Venturi, Palmer-Bowles flumes, and V-notch and rectangular weirs.

Also to be used with non-standard channels and weirs, often installed at wastewater plants and stormflow locations. 713 Open Channel Flowmeter is primarily used for measuring flow outlets from wastewater treatment plants. The flow is calculated upon the water level, provided by either an ultrasonic or hydrostatic level transmitter.

  • Built-in ISO 1438 formulas will provide the most common formulas, but it is possible to calculate flow from simple formulas and level/flow linearization as well.
  • Built-in totalizer with non-resettable counter, and short-term flow overview.
  • Easy to use and set up due to symbolic navigation buttons and multiple display languages.

Electromagnetic Flow Meter
