Sonic Signal Quality: This is a measure of the meters signal health and ability to measure flow. Sonic Signal Quality, also known as Signal Quality, can be seen on the Sensor Details page in the Sensor Health section in the app.
Rescan Pipe: Assure the ultrasonic sensor Signal Quality is above 80%. Ideally, it will be in the high 90th percentile. If Signal Quality is Unknown [screen shot] or very low, press the Rescan Pipe , this will activate an active ultrasonic scan of the pipe to identify the best sensor position. You may even be able to hear the servo’s working inside bluebot.
Pipe Full and under Pressure: If Signal Quality is zero or “Unknown” check that bluebot has a snug tight fit against the pipe and the pipe is clean. The pipe must be full. If it has air in it or is a leg of an irrigation system that is off, Signal Quality will be poor, zero or unknown. Charge the irrigation system with water and Signal Quality should return.
Replacing Coupling Pads: If you have assured the pipe is full and clean of dust and dirt, check the sonic coupling pads inside the meter to assure no dirt or dust. If dirty, you will need to replace them. There are five extra Sonic Coupling Pads in the box bluebot was shipped in.
Adding Sonic Coupling Compound: If the Signal Quality is still Poor, zero or Unknown, you will need to add Sonic Coupling Compound on top of the pads pics. This will help assure there are no air gaps between the bluebot sensors and the pipe. This is critical for operation to make this a tight fit as bluebot clamps on.
