The water that runs through the environment carries the stories of the land. Each drop contributes to an ecosystem both vast and complex and to a watershed we all depend on.
Our reliance on this system connects us — the plants, the frogs, the fish and the people. But it’s easy to forget how closely we are connected, easy to ignore the way the water is affecting all life forms, and how much our own well-being depends on it.
Extreme pH or low DO values signal chemical spills due to sewage treatment plant or supply pipe problems.
The Smart Water wireless sensor platform is simplifying remote water quality monitoring. Equipped with multiple sensors that measure a dozen of the most relevant water quality parameters, the Smart Water platform is the first water quality-sensing platform to feature autonomous nodes that connect to the Cloud for real-time water control. Smart Water is suitable for potable water monitoring, chemical leakage detection in rivers, remote measurement of swimming pools and spas, and levels of seawater pollution. The water quality parameters measured include pH,dissolved oxygen (DO), oxidation-reduction potential (ORP), conductivity (salinity), turbidity, temperature and dissolved ions (F-, Ca2+, NO3-, Cl-, Pb2+, I-, Cu2+, Br-, Ag+/S2-, BF4-).
The Smart Water platform is an ultra low-power sensor node designed for use in rugged environments and deployment in Smart Cities in hard-to-access locations to detect changes and potential risk to public health in real time.
