Water Quality Monitoring: the importance of tank-side control

In aquaculture facilities, centralized water quality monitoring systems have many benefits.  However, there are also drawbacks to having everything controlled at one location; namely, it is a major vulnerability if the system fails.  Long-time field service engineer, Kurt Lang, has seen a range of these types of system failures and they often lead to catastrophic losses. This is the primary reason InWater Technologies has adopted the Point4 Remote Interface Unit (RIU) which stores the critical set-points locally so that in the event of a system failure, the water quality in each tank continues to be maintained.  Multiple RIUs can also be easily incorporated into a larger InWater monitoring system or the facility’s SCADA system.
