Aquatoria® offers workstation software based on Mitsubishi Electric‘s MAPS SCADA which enables flexible adaptation to specific customer requirements. Customisation can be done by the end-user or System Integrator which helps cut system maintenance costs and reduces the reliance between the water utility and the solution provider.
Built on an interactive map, the Geo Module locates facilities, helping to manage and control them. Flexible settings provide maximum visibility and eliminate redundant information on the operator display. The module allows an operator to easily search pumping stations and check their process parameters should there be any customer complaints.
Pumping station configuration module
This allows users to add new or edit existing pumping stations in the configuration of installed pumping units, valves, VFDs, sensors and metering equipment. Its main purpose is to eliminate the need for SCADA programming when controlled objects are added or edited. Using a parameterisation approach, it significantly reduces reliance on qualified operating personnel.
Pumping selection module
The Pumping Selection Module allows users to evaluate the alignment of installed pumps with water supply modes and to select the best combination for power efficiency and extended service life. The module includes a pumps database containing more than 2,000 pumps from various manufacturers.
Analytic reports module
This performs automatic on-line running conditions analysis of pumping stations as well as the whole water supply process. It identifies abnormal process behaviour and deviations in the supply system, warning users as they occur. The module is designed to eliminate the need for continuous manual analysis by water utility staff.
Infrastructure diagnostics module
This allows users to evaluate the causes of poor quality in communication channels and identify problem locations. The module automatically backs up the pump controller PLC programming of the control program, drive parameters and electrical documentation for each station that can then be archived to simplify maintenance.
Adoptive control module
This comprises several software algorithms designed to optimise pressure in the water supply system and eliminate low efficient operation of VFD controlled pumps. The module contains sophisticated process forecasting and neural fuzzy algorithms to eliminate the need for manual adjustments and enable adaptiveness of control.
