- Self Calibrating Remote Water Quality Monitoring Station

From

0

The AquaStation independent monitoring station is a breakthrough in remote water quality monitoring. The AquaStation is able to independently collect data, keep its sensors clear of fouling and calibrate its sensors remotely via its built in telemetry system.

Water quality monitoring in remote and isolated locations can be an expensive task. At its most basic form an engineer is required to visit the site and manually monitor the water using a multiparameter water monitoring probe such as the Aquaread AP-5000. This is a costly approach due to the frequent site visits and constant traveling required.

Reduce Site Visits

A more advanced option is to install a self contained water monitoring station that pumps water into a flowcell past a multiparameter probe in order to make readings automatically. Data is then sent via mobile networks to be viewed from your desk on a PC over the Internet. This approach does reduce the number of site visits required for taking measurements, but regular site visits are still required in order to clean and calibrate the water monitoring probes.

Next Generation Technology

The AquaStation takes a large step in further reducing the number of site visits required by utilising a self cleaning probe and, more importantly, by allowing users to command individual sensor calibration from their desk via the built in telemetry system.

  • Fully automatic remote water quality analysis
  • Self contained and self powered (solar / wind)
  • Self-calibrating
  • Self cleaning
  • User configurable sampling times, cleaning intensity and calibration frequency
  • Analysis results viewable 24/7 on line from any location
  • Low maintenance
  • Various sample pump options to suit all applications
  • Various telemetry options
  • Configurable alarms with user-specified set points generate Email or SMS alerts
  • Live data available on site with built-in Aquameter
  • Measurement of up to 16 individual parameters simultaneously
  • Secure, weatherproof, lockable enclosure

The water monitoring is taken care of by the self cleaning AP-7000 Aquaprobe. The probe can measure up to 16 parameters at once providing a staggering amount of information. The probe’s basic sensor layout offers optical dissolved oxygen, pH, ORP, conductivity, resistivity, salinity, TDS, SSG, and temperature as standard. The Aquaprobe then has 6 user configurable sensor ports that allow you to install any combination of our optical or ionic sensors, such as turbidity, chlorophyll, ammonium and nitrate to name a few.

Viewing the data is very straightforward. Data collected by the probe is sent via GPRS/3G to a secure server, it can then be accessed via Timeview online. This web-based application displays all of the data at a glance and allows you to drill down on each sensor’s trace with increasing control and detail.
