Radio data Networks #smartflood is a range of automated flood gate systems designed to be a viable cost effective alternative to traditional pen-stock valves in flood control schemes. Already adopted by the UK’s Environment Agency these flood gates/valves are perfect for inclusion in food defenses to implement partial or total closure of for example the outflow channel from a flood retention pond / lagoon in order to minimise the risk of downstream flooding. System can also be constructed to block off / restrict the flows in underground drains, sewers and culverts.
#smartflood systems can be created to control discharge pipes/outlets from from 10cm to 1m in diameter, and can be installed without the need for mains power saving in many cases tens of thousands of pounds and months of delay associated with obtaining mains power. Control can be local, fully automated or remote via radio telemetry, satellite telemetry or cellular.
