Endress+Hauser has introduced Netilion Water Network Insights (NWNI), a system said to provide water and wastewater operators with all the critical data from their operations, from any location, any time of day and on any screen — a control room monitor, or a laptop, tablet, or smart phone.

The transparency created can generate operational improvements, the company says, even important cost savings. NWNI interfaces with all levels of a water system wherever they are, offering utilities and process water monitors tailor-made solutions from a single source.

These include everything from real-time monitoring of all field devices, providing components for data recording, transferring and archiving to performing data evaluation and one-of-a-kind forecasting functions.

From their screen of choice, users can view all measurement data, be it water volume, pressure, level or chemical quality parameters. In case of failures or if limit values are exceeded, an alarm is sent automatically via e‑mail or SMS to a smart device or the control room.

High level benefits of NWNI include complete transparency over all quantity- and quality-related parameters in drinking water, process water and wastewater networks, with the potential to identify opportunities to reduce operating and energy costs.

It even can help users identify and set countermeasures to employ in case of failures.
