Advantech understand the vital importance of water industry and offers comprehensive water solutions, aims to provide network platforms to implement remote monitoring, control and management over waterborne transport, water supply, sewage treatment, etc, to optimize operations of facilities and conserve resources. Water facilities such as tap water treatment and supply systems, urban sewage treatment systems or hydrologic information systems, are closely related to people’s life quality and security. The crafts and procedures in volved in these systems are really complicate—for example, the purification of tap water usually requires three to four filtration processes in order to transform raw sewage into safe drinking water. Advantech solutions enable computerized parameter settings and networked remote monitoring control and data analyses, which will help to ensure the quality and efficiency of tap water treatment and supply.
The water industry covers an extensive range from water resource distribution systems, raw water collection and distribution systems, water supply pumping systems, tap water monitoring control systems, booster pump stations monitoring control systems, urban pipeline monitoring control systems, sewage pump station monitoring control systems to sewage treatment monitoring control systems, and more. Targeting these applications, Advantech provides solutions for constructing control and communication platforms with soft-and-hardware products including programmable automation controllers (PAC), Ethernet switches and HMI/SCADA.
Typical Water Application Scenarios
Take sewage treatment as an example, Advantech provides PAC controllers to enable automatic execution of sewage treatment processes, as well as data acquisition and transmission equipment to forward data acquired form sensors and controllers to the control center. The HMI/SCADA software installed in the host at the control center, with a B/S (Browser/Server) networking structure, not only can implement centralized data treatment and applications but also allow client users at remote sites to browse and operate the system—for example, to start or stop the operation of pumps, which will help to greatly increase the efficiency of sewage treatment.
