AQS-SYS - Automated Water-Leak Monitoring Software
AQS-SYS is a complete and comprehensive continuous monitoring leak detection system that has changed the leak detection industry and asset management. By doing continuous correlation the system informs you with certainty when a leak is starting to develop, giving you its exact position, long before the collateral damage erupts. AQS is based on correlating sensors that integrate 3G/4G cellular communication, GPS synchronization and cloud-based automatic signal processing. One can observe his water system through the AQS-SYS web interface at any time and make one’s own analysis of the leak map/GIS. In addition, Aquarius Spectrum’s water engineers are available every day for advice and consultancy
AQS-SYS is an effective system for maintaining urban water distribution assets. Its acoustic sensors are installed on existing water supply infrastructure and so it monitors the entire water system of a town or city 365 days a year. Leaks are detected automatically by acoustic correlating sensors and located the moment they start (holes from 1.5 mm) while data is transmit via 3G/4G cellular communication. Automatic notifications are issued to the facility engineers, indicating the location of the fault on a GIS map while the system continues to monitor the pipe for further deterioration.
- Continuous and automatic 365 days monitoring
- Early detection of leaks, creating prioritization of work orders
- Leak progression monitoring
- Ability to provide pipe condition assessment optimizing the best pipe section to be replaced enhancing budget allocation
- Support all types and diameter pipes
Advanced Acoustic Sensor Technology
The AQS acoustic vibration sensors are the backbone of the system. They incorporate a unique highly sensitive thin-film sensor technology and can be configured to respond to frequencies appropriate to different types of piping such as metal, Asbestos Cement, plastic and others.
All communication is handled by built-in broadband 3G/4G GSM technology. Every sensor contains a 3G/4G SIM card that enables cellular transmission of large quantities of data and easy rapid deployment requiring no external aerials.
Web-Browser-Based Graphic Dashboard
The graphic dashboard integrated with municipal maps is the water engineer’s decision center. The results of all the signals received and processed are presented in a clear visual manner with actionable advice and they constitute an online decision support platform for the handling of water leaks in the network.
