AS4747 Pattern Approved Meters

The National Measurement Institute of Australia checks non-urban water meters for compliance with the Australian Standard for Non-Urban water meters (AS4747). If the meter passes testing, it is pattern approved as compliant with the requirements for closed conduit meters (NMI-M10); or with the requirements for open channel meters (NMI-M11); or with the requirements of equivalent overseas standards. A pattern approved meter complies with these requirements within the operating ranges specified by the meter manufacturer.

The DQP Portal is maintained and supported by WaterNSW.

Telemetry & Data Logging (LIDs)

Under NSW’s metering rules, all surface water works, except for pumps below 200mm, need to be fitted with an accurate meter and a compatible local intelligence device (LID). A LID is a device, such as a telemetry-enabled data logger or other telemetry-capable field solution that is able to connect to a water meter and transmit metering data to government via telemetry. Is it worth noting that all other works that are captured by the metering rules need to be fitted with a compatible telemetry-capable data logger (a Local Intelligence Device or ‘LID’). Although all LIDs need to be equipped with the capability to transmit data, via telemetry to the DAS, only water users with surface water works, except pumps less than 200mm, need to utilise this capability. Other water users can choose not to utilise this capability and instead operate the LID as a data logger only.
