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 Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.
The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".
Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
