McCROMETER FlowConnect

McCROMETER FlowConnect.v4.v4

FlowConnect™ is a built-in solution for collecting and transmitting flow data from McCrometer’s Mc Propeller® and Water Specialties Propeller meters, automating data collection to provide accurate and reliable information for water resource management.

FlowConnect features ExactRead™ Technology for exact match from meter to website. ExactRead samples the digital register directly for its totalizer value, so the numbers are guaranteed to match.

FlowConnect supports water management objectives, including:

  • Billing & Accounting
  • Conservation
  • Regulations & Allocation
  • Planning & Development
  • Operations & Metering
