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."

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.
The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
