YZATEC Innovation: An intelligent meter for intelligent irrigation
The application of piezoelectric technology for flow sensors, developed by the company Yzatec opens up interesting market opportunities by creating a considerable reduction in the cost of flow sensors and water meters.
This concept was born from the encounter of various water sector stakeholders at HydroGaïa 2013 and aims to replace imprecise and unreliable mechanical raw water meters by ultrasonic flow meters developed by YZATEC.
This innovation was awarded at HydroGaïa 2014 for representing the basis for new connections for society.
The industrialisation phase was launched in early 2015 and will provide a range of meters in various diameters to cover irrigation needs, especially in areas where resources are scarce such as southern Europe and northern Africa.
