A digital alternative
Today there are effective digital solutions to help organisations manage bacterial risk in water supply with much more insight and control such as DVS Inform temperature monitoring system box and digital platform.
The HTM-04-01 guidelines state that “More extensive use of automatic sensors and reporting systems should be considered for surveillance of systemic temperature profiling. Sensors should be located throughout the whole hot and cold water systems to ensure they give representative temperature values.”
DVS’ Inform real-time temperature monitoring is one such solution. It offers a digital way to maintain constant oversight of water system assets, by feeding accurate data 24-7 to a secure cloud-based platform.
Inform provides reports, alerts, and data through an intuitive dashboard, which can be accessed on a PC, mobile phone, or tablet.
How DVS Inform remote monitoring works
Remote Inform devices are installed across the water system. These communicate via Narrowband IoT Low Power Wide Area Technologies (LPWA) - to ensure increased building penetration. This provides reliably effective communication in dense urban settings and remote areas alike.
The data from all the system sensors are relayed to Inform’s cloud-based central management system, linking to the user through the solution’s dashboard. The system’s prime function is to ensure the safety of water supply around the clock to the highest standards.
Because Inform delivers real-time data which can be accessed and analysed instantly, reporting is easier to perform and far more detailed.
Inform makes it far easier to achieve and maintain compliance with regulations, for far less cost. It is also a very flexible solution – qualified installation teams can fit Inform to all kinds of systems, regardless of their design, complexity, or age.
Operating a system with Inform monitoring gives a level of information that can identify potential problems before they arise.
