SWIMM is the only pressure transient and water quality monitoring technology that can provide a 24-7 live continuous cellular connection to a remote server from a battery powered portable telemetry system.

Next Generation High Performance Multi-parameter Remote Monitoring and Control for Drinking Water Networks

SWIMM-Nex.Gen is the latest advancement in remote monitoring, control, and protection of our nation’s public water infrastructure. Connected to hydrants or installed as a standalone monitoring stations, now you can more effectively detect pressure transients and reduce pipe breaks, optimize pumping and tank operation, optimize chlorine residuals, proactively manage nitrification, detect turbidity events, and reduce water waste from leaks and over flushing at remote points in the distribution network.

The core strength and what sets SWIMM-Nex.Gen apart is its high performance, reliability, and interoperability. The central data acquisition system is by U.S. manufacturer Campbell Scientific, world leader and gold standard in remote telemetry monitoring in harsh environments, with over 300,000 deployments across the globe over their 40 year history.

The SWIMM-Nex.Gen patent pending design accepts virtually any water quality sonde including trusted U.S. manufactures such as ATI, In-Situ, Xylem/YSI, etc. for monitoring pressure, pressure transients, free, combined, or total chlorine, pH, temperature, conductivity, ORP, dissolved oxygen, turbidity, and other parameters. The design also incorporates an innovative sampling valve internal to the hydrant to monitor the main line more quickly for real time operational and security response and optimized flushing of the water distribution network.

SWIMM-Nex.Gen includes a robust solar power design and a myriad of communication options to upload data to the central server. Most commonly used is the Sierra Wireless RV50 ultra-low power industrial cellular gateway which works with all major North American carriers (Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile USA, US Cellular, Rogers, Bell, or Telus networks). RF spread spectrum radios, multi-drop or short haul modems, Ethernet and Wifi interfaces, or Satellite communication options are available.

SWIMM-Nex.Gen can directly communicate with your office PC or your existing SCADA system, or you can utilize our SWIMM-Connect software-as-a-service (SaaS) web-site application for rapid turn-key deployments, or integrate with SWIMM-Watch (SaaS or autonomous configurations).

Web-based Monitoring of Pressure Transients, Water Quality, Flow, or Leak Noise

SWIMM-Monitor is a combination multi-sensor, data logger and wireless telemetry unit specifically designed for deployment in “hard to reach” places in water distribution networks. The SWIMM-Connect web application is used to view the SWIMM-Monitor sensor data, alarms and system diagnostics, GPS location, and manage settings remotely. Optionally, the SWIMM-Monitor can be integrated with the water utilities existing SCADA system.

Sensor Options:
Pressure and pressure transients (typical)
Free and/or combined chlorine, pH, temperature (typical)
Turbidity (typical)
Additional Modbus RTU sensors available
2 DI (pulse) for flow meter integration (typical)
2 AI (4-20mA, 1-10V) for 3rd party analyzers

Pressure or water quality customer complaint and response
Pipeline break event detection and notification
Chlorine residual and THM compliance management
District metered area (DMA) active leak detection
Real-time network model calibration and integration using Innovyze SCADAWatch and InfoWater software

The SWIMM-Monitor can be provided on a panel or in a tamper-proof aluminum enclosure (optional bullet-proof solar panel for live 24-7 continuous cellular communication), including tamper-proof cellular and GPS antennas, hydrant nozzle connection with locking clasp, and adjustable support leg/lock bar. All components (sensors, battery pack and RTU) are IP68 waterproof making an additional enclosure unnecessary for below ground installations.

Multiple communication protocols are available including: CDMA or GSM cellular, Wifi, Ethernet or Satellite. Sprint and Verizon CDMA cellular comes standard. Utilizing the built-in GPS, users can track the SWIMM-Monitor location automatically in the SWIMM-Connect web application to communicate more effectively with operators on the ground.

swimm controller

Web-based Monitoring and Control of Pressure and Water Quality

SWIMM-Controller is a powerful multi-sensor, data logger, controller, and wireless telemetry unit specifically designed to control pressure and water quality (using auxiliary equipment) at “hard to reach” places in water distribution networks, all managed from the SWIMM-Connect web application or integrated with the water utilities existing SCADA system.

SWIMM-Controller has all the features of the SWIMM-Monitor but with the advantage of being able to control auxiliary equipment such as tank mixers, chemical feed pumps, flushing systems, and pressure control valves using local or remote sensor feedback or peer-to-peer I/O exchange at the server application (e.g. optimize pressure or water quality at one point based on measurement at a remote downstream site).

Remote Monitoring, Control, and Data Visualization
Website Application (SaaS) or Autonomous SCADA Integration

SWIMM-Connect is a combination communication server, database, and web application (SaaS) that provides instant access to SWIMM-Nex.Gen telemetry, simplifying the deployment and management of complex monitoring and optimization systems in your water supply and drinking water network. SWIMM-Connect is powered by technology and offered as a Software-as-a-Service which includes: cellular provider fees, cloud database management, and website application. SWIMM-Connect provides your water utility a simple turn-key solution for monitoring, controlling, and managing your SWIMM-Nex.Gen telemetry deployments.

If your water utility desires autonomy, Smart Water Services can facilitate integration of SWIMM-Nex.Gen telemetry with your existing SCADA system utilizing various communication protocols (cellular radio, spread spectrum radios, multi-drop or short haul modems, Ethernet and Wifi interfaces, or Satellite communication), and using Campbell Scientific LoggerNet and OPC server software. Alternatively, Smart Water Services can assist your water utility in the creation of a custom website using the Campbell Scientific RTMC Pro software.

Real-time SCADA, GIS, Model, and SWIMM Technology Integration

The era of Smart Water Networks has arrived.

SCADAWatch is the latest advancement in Smart Water Network technology developed by Innovyze. SCADAWatch is a powerful data visualization, analytics, and operational decision support (ODS) platform that integrates real-time SCADA data, ESRI ArcGIS Server, InfoWater model, and smart sensor data (AMI, pressure, flow, and water quality sensors) to revolutionize the way we monitor and analyze water distribution networks.

Now network models can sit anywhere (the consultant’s office, plant control room, or the water utility’s engineering office) with a live connection to operational data for continuous model calibration and real-time model simulations of events in the distribution system network.

SWIMM-Watch is the integration of the Innovyze SCADAWatch front end with the SWIMM-Nex.Gen telemetry system including Campbell Scientific backend to provide the most powerful combination of remote monitoring and control technologies to optimize virtually any point in your water supply and drinking water network.
