Kamstrup AMI is an automated metering infrastructure that achieves a high reading performance with minimal hardware investment. The new system from Kamstrup supplies hourly consumption data and analytics to water utilities, enabling water professionals to work more proactively with data. With no external wires, the communication unit is housed inside the meter. This eliminates the risk of disconnected wires and unplanned maintenance costs down the road. With data, water professionals can make informed decisions about budget planning, ways to enhance customer service and take charge in proactively repairing mains and pipes in the distribution network before they become catastrophic incidents.
Innovyze has released version 4.5 of SCADAWatch, a network data management and business analytics and optimization solution for water distribution systems. The software turns traditional off-line analyses into real-time, actionable intelligence. SCADAWatch allows users to proactively view, share and analyze water operational information, key performance indicator (KPI) measures, and hydraulic and water quality data in motion on a real-time business dashboard. It automatically generates comprehensive, high-fidelity performance reports to help utilities develop the optimal course of action based on specific performance objectives. V4.5’s open API also allows third-party field applications to seamlessly communicate with SCADAWatch.
