Pipers™

Free flowing smart sensors

Designed to go with the flow of any given liquid and capture sensing data along the way, Pipers™ are robust, miniaturized mobile sensor systems perfectly suited to measure the actual flow behavior of liquids in e.g. pipelines, industrial installations, wave flumes and even in open water.

  • Golf ball size (1.5 inch in diameter).
  • Equipped with a triaxial accelerometer, gyroscope, and magnetometer to record and combine the sensor system’s acceleration, rotation, and gravitational forces.
  • Capability to match the specific weight of the material of interest.
  • Chemically inert and high pressure resistant.
  • Data is initially stored on-board, enabling continuous measurements for over three hour.
  • Multiple Pipers™ can be synchronized to perform a combined measurement.

Go with the flow

Pipers™ are designed to perform measurements such as movement, temperature, magnetic field, within a liquid. This solution is ideal for performing in-situ measurements of flow patterns combined with additional physical and chemical parameters.

  • Sensing beyond the reach of state-of-the-art technologies.
  • Follows fluid dynamics and senses the environment around them.
  • Autonomous micro sensor systems can be mixed or combined with your product to perform measurements (e.g. movement, temperature, magnetic field) from inside and during the full distribution processes.
  • Local, onboard data storage allows you to access information previously believed inaccessible

Better Understand Your Transportation or Distribution Process

Pipers™ can be mixed or combined with your product to perform internal measurements (e.g. movement, temperature, magnetic field) to better understand the transportation and full distribution process. Data captured can reveal essential information about the conditions to which your product or resource material is exposed.
