Automated systems in a water or wastewater treatment system typically rely on data in order to make the slight adjustments needed to keep those systems running at top efficiency. Syrinix has launched the next-generation version of its RADAR cloud-based water and wastewater network data analysis platform that analyzes data collected from installed PIPEMINDER monitoring devices and displays and notifies utilities in a format that is not only customizable, but easy to absorb.

RADAR delivers network intelligence with a simple, fast interface. Featuring zone alarms that notify of a high- or low-pressure breach, elevation options for plotting total head pressures, automated triangulation of major events and pattern recognition so users can easily focus on key events, the platform provides deep network insights to save time, increase operational efficiency and build resilience by reducing disruptive pipeline leaks and bursts.

“Our utility partners around the world can access deeper network intelligence instantly with customized warnings and alerts in an easy, intuitive platform,” says James Dunning, Syrinix CEO. “Comprehensive remote monitoring that is easily accessible, even from home, prioritizes worker safety and data visibility that is more aligned than ever with today’s changing utility workforce and working environment. It’s pipeline monitoring for a new world.”

Multizone alarms alert the utility when a minimum network pressure level is breached, automatically switching to more frequent data updates so customers can address network issues in real time. While previous versions of RADAR identified that a transient had occurred, a new triangulation feature now automatically pinpoints the location of major transients so network events, like bursts, can be found more quickly. A pattern recognition feature compares and classifies transient waveforms against a standard set of reference transients specific to that network. By classifying similar shapes into actions, like a pump stop or pump start, RADAR determines which events are typical and those that are unusual or abnormal and need urgent attention. This advanced level of intelligence empowers users to focus on the uncommon network events, saving time and money.

“This new version of RADAR is a great evolution of the existing functionality provided by Syrinix,” says Richard Fielding, Smart Water Systems engineer, Anglian Water. “RADAR will enable our analysts to work more efficiently, improve insight generation and reduce operational maintenance requirements of our fleet of devices.” 844-279-7464;
