A Digital Twin is a virtual replica of a physical asset that is updated in real-time via a two-way data connection and, as such, representative of its live characteristics.
It took some time for computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to find its way to the water industry, but now that it has, a primer is warranted to understand its application.
The journey toward intelligent water can be expedited with eight key steps — a guideline for gliding through the Digital Water Adoption Curve.
Denver Water serves 1.4 million people in the city of Denver and the surrounding suburbs. It is the largest — and oldest — water utility in the state of Colorado and its service area covers more than 335 square miles.
As digitalization continues to grow in the water and wastewater industry, cybersecurity becomes an increasingly important responsibility.
The first SWAN Digital Twin Workshop brought together key voices from around the world representing water utilities, academia, and technology vendors to help build consensus on the foundational definitions and guiding values needed to underpin digital twin concepts and architectural framework.
Water scarcity. Aging infrastructure. Uncertainty due to climate change. Experts from across the water sector agree that water challenges are intensifying, and that action and public awareness is a necessity. Now we have the need — and the opportunity — for those same voices to raise the volume on one of the most powerful ways to address increasing water threats: digital innovation.
Digital transformation of the water sector is continuing to grow in 2019. Climate change, urban population growth, tightening regulations, aging infrastructure, and water scarcity are some of the many global challenges water utilities will be forced to address in creative and cost-effective ways. To meet these needs, utilities are deploying an array of technologies that significantly alter operations and customer engagement.
Water industry professionals are experiencing a data deluge. There’s a lot of data out there, gathered from sensors monitoring everything from water quality to pipe bursts — but altogether, it’s too much data divided among too many silos to make sense of what it all means.
When it comes to the Internet of Things (IoT), especially in the sometimes conservative water industry, there may be considerable hand-wringing over incorporating IoT into your pump process. Some of the most oft-asked questions — from implementation trends through start-up and ownership — are assembled and answered here.
Within the Mi.Net System--Mueller Systems' fixed 2-way AMI system--the Mi.Host server collects data from and controls all Mi.Hub fixed-location, data collectors.
VTScadaLIGHT brings superior monitoring and control capabilities to a vast array of automation projects. Perfect for small industrial and personal applications up to 50 I/O.
Siemens offers to our customers the ability to both make process measurements and to remotely monitor the activity and health of that instrumentation without the need for SCADA systems or other expensive process control room products. By utilizing Siemens’ ability to offer unparalleled flow, level, pressure, temperature, and weight measurement as well as valve control, we can provide a broad range of process measurements and offer unequaled monitoring of the health and performance of those products.
Standard VTScada Component - Share your SCADA information across your whole orginization using integrated ODBC, OPC, and Web Services.
How can your water utility protect present investments in technology while building onto those investments as you need, at your own pace?
