VIDI Positioner is a battery-operated device that detects the open/close position of a S21/35 and 21/87 gate valves and transmits data wirelessly.

VIDI Positioner is a smart device for indicating the position of gate valves. It detects the open/close position of a gate valve and transmits the data wirelessly.

The VIDI Positioner is designed for direct mounting on AVK S21/35 gate valves. After installation and activation, the device transmits information about the position of the valve to the VIDI Cloud platform or to a third-party software (e.g., SCADA or GIS).

VIDI Positioner provides water utilities with valuable insights into the use of valves by remotely monitoring the position of the valve by indicating whether it is open, close, or any percentage in between. Based on the provided information, water utilities can optimise the operation of the water distribution network, extend the lifetime of assets, efficiently lower water loss.

Variant 3004/100-001
