Blue I’s "Smart LEATM", a self-powered water quality analysis station will be introduced at Singapore International Water Week (June 2-4, 2014) and Aquatech China (June 25-27, 2014)
Blue I Water Technologies, a global provider of online water analyzers and controllers, is unveiling a new water quality analyzer that has been specially designed for integration in Smart Water Networks. The company will be introducing the device in June 2014, at Singapore International Water Week (June 2-4) and at Aquatech China (June 25-27).
Smart LEATMis a self-powered, low energy and multi-parameter water quality analyzer, specially designed with sensors that collect and transmit data to be used in predictive analysis systems in smart water networks. The Smart LEATM is part of Blue I’s strategy to incorporate its quality analysis technologies into the growing world of the Internet of Things (IoT).
The new device has been developed with independent, built-in energy storage so that it does not rely on external power sources. This is a key feature that facilitates reliable monitoring for water quality at the most critical points along the water distribution network despite limited accessibility and power supply at those points, including underground pipes and multiple locations near homes, offices and public places.
Dr. Stela Diamant, CTO at Blue I explains: "Water networks generally do not have access to the power supply network at every given point and it is not economically or environmentally feasible to create such an infrastructure. As a result, installing water quality analyzers at what would be ideal points in the system might be abandoned and the competence of entire systems can be compromised due to the lack of power supply at those points in the network. So we see this device as a perfect solution to benefit water distribution networks with heavily branched delivery lines that want to ensure water quality close to the consumer."
Low energy consumption, reduced maintenance, high-precision analysis
Based on high-precision amperometric and colorimetric technologies, this analyzer performs free chlorine, turbidity, ORP, pH, temperature, conductivity, flow and pressure measurements. The system features fast response time to level changes in the parameters being monitored to elicit immediate response for continuous water safety.
Smart Water Networks revolve around gathering and analyzing data to improve its systems and resolve problems more effectively. The Smart LEATM’s sensors relay all data in real time to the network’s online management system and enables ongoing access to data, alerts and history. Data measurements and alarms are logged locally and are also transmitted through cellular data communication systems.
Besides operating on a built-in low energy consumption long-life battery, the analyzer also requires very little calibration, which is a valuable feature for reduced maintenance and site visits. The device and its cables are encased in waterproof enclosures (IP67) for reliable operation in damp environments.
"Water distribution networks are fast entering the age of smart data analysis and require devices that can gather and transmit data that supports efficient, conservational, cost-effective and safe systems," notes Blue I’s CEO, Jacob Azran. He emphasized that "a system that includes Smart LEA analyzers at critical points along the network, even where power supply is not available, is able to create a transformational smart network and secure safe water for its consumers. This device is an invaluable tool in today’s intelligent water distribution infrastructures."

The more electronics steer, accelerate and brake cars, the more important it is to protect them against cyber-attacks. That is why 15 partners from industry and academia will work together over the next three years on new approaches to IT security in self-driving cars. The joint project goes by the name Security For Connected, Autonomous Cars (SecForCARs) and has funding of €7.2 million from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Infineon is leading the project.

There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?
