Title: DEVICE FOR MONITORING WATER SUPPLY EQUIPMENT, WATER PURIFICATION EQUIPMENT AND SOLAR WATER HEATER
Abstract:
A device for monitoring water supply equipment, water purification equipment and a solar water heater. The device for monitoring water supply equipment comprises a detecting module and a monitoring module, the detecting module and the monitoring module being coupled with each other via wireless connection. The detecting module of the device is disposed on the water supply equipment, and the detecting module comprises a sensing unit for detecting the water condition in the water supply equipment. The detecting module further comprises a signal processing unit electrically connected to the sensing unit for processing the water condition provided by the sensing unit. The detecting module further comprises a first wireless communication unit electrically connected to the signal processing unit for transmitting the processed water condition result. The monitoring module of the device is disposed outside the water supply equipment for receiving the processed water condition result from the detecting module and displaying the same. By using the device, a user far away from the water supply equipment can still have access to the water condition information and determine the running state of the water supply equipment.
