Water treatment company views critical assets data in real-time
03 February 2020
MAC Solutions has supplied its Fetch Data Collector software to Nordikeau, a water and wastewater treatment company based in Quebec province, Canada. The software enables Nordikeau to log data from critical assets and equipment in real-time (every 10 seconds), providing data for alarms and early notifications of any equipment or process issues.
Fetch Data Collector is a software package designed specifically for Ewon remote access VPN routers that makes data collection easier, faster and more secure than ever. The software collects historical data from the data storage memory within the Ewon Flexy remote access VPN router. The software can be configured in an easy three-step process with minimum technical knowledge required and minimal configuration within each Ewon device.
With more than 100 sites across Canada, Nordikeau specialises in drinking and waste water treatment. Martin Fafard, Director Smart City at Nordikeau comments: “We wanted to view asset data in real-time so that we could react more quickly to issues and to provide our staff and clients with live data and dashboards via mobile phones and laptops using alarms and notifications. We therefore installed the Fetch Data Collector and an Ewon Flexy remote access router in September 2019 at one of our water treatment plants.”
Whilst maintaining the highest levels of data security using HTTPS encryption, Fetch Data Collector can connect to any number of remote machines via the Ewon device and Talk2M Remote-Connectivity Cloud. Alternatively, Fetch Data Collector can be configured to collect data on a local basis, from locally connected Ewon devices. This is designed for end-users, who wish to store production data in local machines and then archive the data into a centralised data storage, for real-time analytics. Data collected can be stored to either ODBC-compliant databases or a series of CSV files, with fully customisable file formats and naming conventions. This ensures maximum compatibility with third party software, such as historians, analytical tools and IoT (Internet of Things) connectivity environments.
