  • Wired or Wireless? Remote Tank Level Monitoring Nuts & Bolts

    When it comes to picking a level sensor for remote tank monitoring you have an important choice to make: do you get a level sensor that uses a wired Ethernet connection or one with a self-contained cellular connection? As everything seems to be headed towards wireless these days, the knee-jerk response would be to buy the cellular sensor. It may be a good choice if conditions are ideal, but it's ...

  • Building automation - smart Lufft-sensor on Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) in Athens - Case Study

    In Athens the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC), which was designed by Renzo Piano, is built. It will host the the National Library of Greece and the Greek National Opera. We are part of this actual largest buliding project in Greece in form of a WS601-UMB compact weather sensor: On the photovolatic roof the sensor measuring temperature, relative humidity, air pressure, wind ...

  • Is Your Traffic Management Future-Proof?

    What are the market trends in traffic management? Which technologies are available now and what should we expect in the future? How should we generate the data we need?

  • AQMesh used to measure local air quality at Surrey school

    Cleves School in Weybridge, Surrey (UK) has used AQMesh to measure pollution at the primary school’s entrance. The project, led by Dr. Edward Salter over the school’s summer term, aimed to understand exposure of the children (aged 7-11) to dangerous pollutant gases, with particular interest in the levels of nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and ozone (O3). Initial findings showed that levels of ...

  • Identification of indispensable components for a better drinking water quality management: Tunis case of study

    In order to reduce the number of operations for the assessment of potable water treatment, principal component analysis and hierarchical clustering are applied to large databases of raw and treated water of three treatment plants with various processes. It appears that the measurements can be divided into three clear groups, with a correlation higher than 0.8. The first contains salinity, ...

  • Big Data: It’s all about the strategy

    Big Data, a huge amount of data, is a challenge for researchers and analysts. Although the data sets can lead to many new insights after the evaluation, their complexity, fast rate of change, and simply their amount makes it almost impossible to process them with classic methods and without smart technical aids. Images, audios, videos, GPS satellite data, internal company information, social ...

  • Data Centre CRAC unit efficiency improvements

    One of the main types of project Munters look at is energy efficiency improvements within the thermal management side. One of the easiest changes that can be made is swapping out the old AC powered motors for EC powered impellors. the reductions in energy is considerable, with some older belt drive unit changes measuring a saving of over 60% this is due to the design of the new impellors and the ...

  • Synergistic benefits between stormwater management measures and a new pricing system for stormwater in the City of Hamburg

    Hamburg is a growing metropolitan city. The increase in sealed surfaces of about 0.36% per year and the subsequent increased runoff impacts on the city's wastewater infrastructure. Further potential risks to the drainage infrastructure arise also from effects of climate change, e.g. increased intensity and frequency of heavy rainfalls. These challenges were addressed in the Rain InfraStructure ...

  • Modelling spatio-temporal heterogeneities in groundwater quality in Ghana: a multivariate chemometric approach

    Chemometric techniques were applied to evaluate the spatial and temporal heterogeneities in groundwater quality data for approximately 740 goldmining and agriculture-intensive locations in Ghana. The strongest linear and monotonic relationships occurred between Mn and Fe. Sixty-nine per cent of total variance in the dataset was explained by four variance factors: physicochemical properties, ...
