Product Spotlight - Wastewater: March 2021

As more processes in the wastewater treatment plant become automated, the ability to monitor those processes to maintain safe and effective treatment is of the utmost importance. Hawk Measurement Systems recently introduced an in-plant and cloud-based measurement and monitoring system, HawkEye365, designed to make that monitoring easy. 

The HawkEye365 online inventory asset and monitoring portal is a complete remote and in-plant measurement and monitoring system. The unique system offers communications capabilities and compatibility with Power over Ethernet level sensors. The advantages to Power over Ethernet connectivity are secure in-plant and remote monitoring as well as remote sensor setup, diagnostics and troubleshooting abilities. The portal not only monitors PoE transmitters, but is sensor agnostic and can monitor any type of field device such as level, flow, pressure, temperature and pH. The multiple communication methods include RS485, HART, Modbus, Ethernet TCP/IP, cellular, Bluetooth and PoE.

“HAWK has been providing innovative sensor technologies for over 30 years in some of the harshest environments,” says Jack Evans, president of HAWK. “We have provided remote service capabilities for many years now, and have developed remote monitoring of assets with the ability to provide remote service.”

HawkEye365 can monitor multiple tanks and applications worldwide in real time. The portal provides accessibility to critical data such as the ability to view volume, space, material height, historical trending, alarms and alerts, sensor setup and diagnostics. Plant level operator screens are customized to the company’s specifications to include control room level and operations level interface screens. The graphical user interface will be common throughout and permissions can be set for different tiers such as plant-level, finance or executive level. If any troubleshooting is required, the HawkEye365 will communicate to remote service technicians for off-site diagnostics, sensor health and reconfiguration, without the need to climb a tank or enter the facility.

Inventory asset management is becoming more critical throughout many process industries besides just water and wastewater, including in oil and gas, chemical and petrochemical, energy, mining and agriculture. Evans explained that the decision to design and develop the HawkEye365 monitoring technology was necessary based on their customer feedback and foreseeable direction of the market.

“The HawkEye365 is designed for expansion to uplink data to unlimited facilities and unlimited remote sites,” he says. “HAWK is committed to providing innovative technology and services to customers globally.” 888-429-5538;
