A utility should be the first to know about the events on its water network. Syrinix lets you know where a problem has happened - a break, an unknown asset anomaly - when it happens. With customized alerts and cloud-based access, valuable network information is delivered with confidence.
Instant alarms feed a targeted operational response
At Evides Waterbedrijf, following the deployment of transient monitoring sensors within a district metered area (DMA), bursts of varying flow rates were simulated at multiple hydrant locations.
A pressure wave from a burst travels around the DMA and is detected by multiple PIPEMINDER devices which are time-synchronized (to within +/- 50 milliseconds) and transfer high sample rate data over the cellular network to RADAR, Syrinix’s cloud-based data analytics platform.
Collectively, the devices utilize the onset of the pressure waves and RADAR runs an automatic triangulation algorithm to calculate the location of the burst.
All this can happen in a five-minute time-span. The customer is alerted and knows immediately where to send field crews.
