Title (EN) APPARATUS, SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR MONITORING FLUID FLOW IN BEVERAGE DISPENSING SYSTEMS
(FR) APPAREILS, SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS POUR LE CONTRÔLE DE DÉBIT DE FLUIDE DANS DES SYSTÈMES DE DISTRIBUTION DE BOISSONS
Abstract:
(EN) A monitoring system for a beverage dispensing system having at least one fluid conduit. The monitoring system includes at least one monitoring apparatus configured to be coupled to at least one fluid conduit, each monitoring apparatus having at least one sensor and being configured to determine when liquid is flowing through the conduit, at least one hub configured to receive information from the at least one monitoring apparatus about when liquid is flowing through the at least one conduit, and at least one processor configured to determine a volume of liquid flowing through the fluid conduit based on the information received from the at least one monitoring apparatus.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un système de contrôle pour un système de distribution de boissons comprenant au moins un conduit de fluide. Le système de contrôle comporte au moins un appareil de contrôle configuré pour être couplé avec au moins un conduit de fluide, chaque appareil de contrôle comprenant au moins un capteur et étant configuré pour déterminer l'instant où le fluide circule dans le conduit, au moins un concentrateur pour recevoir une information provenant dudit un appareil de contrôle concernant l'instant où le liquide circule dans ledit un conduit, et au moins un processeur configuré pour déterminer un volume de liquide circulant dans le conduit de fluide sur la base de l'information reçue depuis ledit un appareil de contrôle.
