What is the AVK Smart Water solution?

Inside the distribution network there are multiple measuring points, but because the assets such as fittings and valves are buried deep in the ground, it is difficult to know exactly how these assets are positioned, where they are and whether they are intact or damaged. The AVK Smart Water solution is a way for utility companies to monitor the condition and specific assets in the water distribution network.

The AVK Smart Water solution is a combined solution of both hardware and software. It consists of battery driven IoT sensors, a device hub that collects and decodes the data, and a software platform that visualises complex data and turns it into understandable insights. The IoT sensors are designed to fit AVK core products such as gate valves, fire hydrants and AVK fittings. When installed, the IoT sensors provide data directly from applications in the water distribution network and send the data to the dedicated software platform.

AVK Smart Water IoT sensors

The sensors are battery driven, thus flexible and easy to install. In addition, the sensors use wireless communication technology that enable them to send packages of data to the cloud and into a software platform.

The IoT sensors from AVK Smart Water include:

  • Pressure sensor
  • Flow sensor
  • Temperature sensor
  • Open/close sensor
  • Level sensor
  • Fire hydrant cap sensor
  • Valve position indicator

Learn more about each sensor in the IoT sensor brochure below.

 

AVK Smart Water software solution

AVK Smart Water offers a digital solution including a device hub that collects and decodes data from VIDI devices and converts it into understandable values. With this solution you can integrate data directly into your preferred IT-system or visualise it in AVK Smart Water’s own platform VIDI Cloud.

With sensors from the AVK smart Water solution installed across the water network, utilities are provided with more detailed insight about points in the network that were difficult to monitor before.

Furthermore, the software solution offers different subscriptions accommodating to every need. Read more about AVK Smart Water's software packages in the above flyer.

Case

From man-driven to system-based management: Operating with an open system

In the past, Herning Vand has been dependent on individuals knowing everything worth knowing about the utility’s water distribution system. For example, how the system is built; why it is built this way; where valves are placed and whether they are opened or closed.

Digitalisation ensures safe and clean drinking water

Skanderborg Forsyning has a vast supply area in which they need to ensure safe and clean drinking water for the consumers. But it can be challenging to get a general overview of the fire hydrants’ status because they are placed around the supply area.
