Platform Accurately Monitors Water Quality

Libelium improves the accuracy and robustness of its Smart Water Xtreme Monitoring Platform based on IoT technology. The enhanced device includes top market performance sensors from prestigious manufacturers for applications such as potable water monitoring, fish farms management, chemical leakage detection, remote measurement of swimming pools and spas, and seawater pollution.

 

The solution now features digital and optical sensors that provide high accuracy, more robustness, and immunity to environmental oscillations. Water quality parameters measured include dissolved oxygen, pH, redox (ORP), conductivity, salinity, TDS – Kcl (total dissolved solids), temperature, nephelometric turbidity, suspended solids and sludge blanket. Ion selective probes have also been added to detect ammonium, nitrate, chloride, sodium and calcium presence.

The probes work with RD-485, SDI-12 digital protocols that allow a sensor probe cable length of up to 50 meters and include robust IP68 sensors that work underwater at a pressure of up to 5 bar (50 meters). This feature allows the study of the water column, a concept used in oceanography to describe the physical and chemical characteristics of seawater at different depths. It is now possible to place the sensors at different depths for applications like dissolved oxygen control.

 

Additionally, each sensor includes a calibration report that assures that they have been tested and calibrated. An internal temperature sensor is even used in each probe to get a better accuracy of the specific parameter. For more details, visit the product page.
