DIVES - monitoring of the water network backbone

The new chambers with water flow measurement equipment measurements were installed in place at two pilot sites, Rödsö and Oivu. The installation of LoRAWAN meters enables accurate measurement of water flow in the post-meter network, and thus possible leaks in the backbone network, for example, can be detected.
For the time being, water flow consumption is measured every hour and transmissions are measured every 8 hours to avoid premature battery depletion. The project intends to investigate whether the battery capacity of the LoRa radio section can be increased, and then program the device to measure more frequently.
