Remote water leakage detection utilising GPRS and 3G communications

Phocus3m is an acoustic logger that automatically detects leaks on water distribution networks. Deployed underground it utilises low cost GPRS/3G communications without the need for costly above ground technology.



  • Remote leakage identification to reduce leak run-time and improve efficiency
  • PrimeWeb map based data available
  • Audio files available for remote listening to confirm presence of leak noise
  • Phocus noise algorithm reduces incidence of undetected leaks
  • Three sample periods to separate usage from leakage thus reducing false alarms
  • No infrastructure above ground required
  • One, small, low cost logger per installation
  • Embedded roaming SIM for optimum communications
