Products ATi MetriNet multi-parameter water quality monitor ● Smart digital sensor technology using 8 m-Node sensors ● measures residual chlorine, turbidity, ph, conductivity, dissolved oxygen and more ● runs at pressures up to 6 bar ● On-board data logging with long battery life Focus on…Sensors and instrumentation What it is: analytical Technology's new metriNet multi-parameter water quality monitor for networks is the latest addition to aTi's family of water quality monitors, which also includes NephNet and chlorNet. It represents a brand new modular approach to smart sensor technology, and provides a flexible method for delivering information from remote locations. What's so good about it: Designed specifically for applications in water distribution networks, the metriNet allows for continuous measurement of key water quality parameters such as residual chlorine, turbidity, ph, conductivity, dissolved oxygen, temperature and more. It uses industry-leading smart m-Node sensors, which are ultra low-powered and run autonomously for years at a time on small batteries; alternatively, they can be powered from a local plc or telemetry system. What they say: aTi General manager, Dr mike Strahand: "at aTi, we believe that the sensor is where everything starts. The difference between ATi's metriNet and other multi- parameter monitors is that we are sensor people adding data handling and not the other way around, hence our phrase 'no compromise'." Spectro Scientific Fluidscan Spectro Scientific has introduced Version 5 of its FluidScan portable infrared oil analyser technology, enabling users to determine when oil is no longer fit for use due to liquid contamination or other degradation. Version 5 includes a variety of new features that improve performance, including lower limits of detection (LODs) on total water measurement for turbine oils from 1000 ppm to 300 ppm, boosting analysis sensitivity and accuracy. measurement stability is reinforced by a new infrared background measurement function. HWM MultiLog LX asset monitoring specialist hWm has upgraded its multiLog LX with innovative added features. The new multiLog LX-2 is an advanced, low-power telemetry data logger designed with long asset life and harsh environments in mind. It can be programmed and its firmware upgraded remotely, removing the need for time- consuming site visits. Enhanced features, including fast logging to 25 hz and accelerated logging during target windows, give increased asset visibility when monitoring potentially- critical events such as network bursts, improving network conditions and customer satisfaction. VEGA MCERTS Radar VEGa's radar- based system has gained mcErTS approval from the Environment agency for open channel flow measurement. The benefits of radar measurement include a precise level measurement and the fact that the system remains robust when faced with changes in temperature, condensation, dirt or build up on transducers, wind or surface conditions. a radar-based system can deliver reliable and accurate flow measurement despite these challenges.
