SWITZERLAND — Swiss-based process and laboratory instrumentation and automation supplier Endress+Hauser has launched new software designed to enable companies to achieve comprehensive optimization and automation for water networks.

Known as Netilion Water Network Insights (NWNI), the new software provides users with complete system monitoring, and when limit values are exceeded, or in the event of failure, it delivers alarms to users via e-mail, SMS, or push notifications. 

The software system includes many evaluation tools, including time curves, diagrams, tables, and trends that help inform characteristics, like run-off during heavy rainfall, consumer water demand, and expected availability. 

Endress+Hauser assures that all communication is encrypted and secure, even in remote regions with a self-sufficient power supply, providing data reliability and integrity. 

With the new software, personnel can have access to systemwide views, reducing required rounds and verifying functional operation of remote spring taps, elevated reservoirs, pipelines, pumping and distribution stations, and more.  

This makes it possible to keep close tabs on a broad range of system values and quality parameters including and Comprehensive water quantity and quality monitoring around the clock and energy efficiency and optimization.

Monitoring of waste water treatment

Industrial, commercial, and municipal wastewater regulatory agencies mandate many water quality parameters to protect the environment, so facilities must treat wastewater in several stages prior to discharge.  

To maintain compliance, these facilities must carefully monitor water quality, substance concentrations, pollution loads, and other parameters. 

NWNI ensures wastewater treatment organizations meet or maintain these requirements at all times of the day, by assisting operations with reliable forecasts of in/outflows and water quality and optimal sizing of wastewater treatment. 

It also provides wastewater plants with precise flow and concentration measurements to ensure accurate billing of wastewater charges and 

NWNI also supports biological process risk mitigation in wastewater plants by monitoring influent substance concentrations 

It also provides systemwide visualization and recordkeeping, improving regulatory, reporting, and custody transfer accuracy. 

The system also help water agencies streamline operations, improve decision-making, and increase revenue streams. 

Earlier, Endress+Hauser reported consolidated sales of €2.9 billion ($3.8 billion), up 11 per cent over the previous year.  

In terms of net sales and profit, the family company not only grew compared to the prior year but also eclipsed the comparative numbers for 2019.  

With strong growth in 2021, Endress+Hauser has left the coronavirus pandemic behind economically, said a top official of the automation giant headquartered in Basel, Switzerland.
