Abstract

At present, water is increasingly scarce, so a constant infrastructure for the operation and distribution of the resource is required, however, the control of spending on water resources using measurements performed by different types of electrical, electromechanical and ultrasonic meters is also required. The objective of this study was to create a wireless data acquisition system that is accurate, friendly and much cheaper than the afore-mentioned relationship, with the possibility for its application to dams, canals and rivers, for the elimination of human error in its operation and the removal of any maintenance required from abroad. In order to achieve this, better measurement systems are required. This paper presents a data acquisition system and economic dynamic that allows the gauging of measurements wirelessly, processing the captured parameters that are needed to calculate a gauging, as well as the pulses that give us the velocity meter model price, and later get the speed and real time spending with the ability to store or print information.
