New ForeSITE™-UL Ultrasonic Monitoring is Fully Compatible with ADS PRISM™ Suite

New ForeSITE™-UL Ultrasonic Monitoring is Fully Compatible with ADS PRISM™ Suite

ADS Environmental Services® has announced release of its all-new ForeSITE™ ultrasonic level monitoring system (FS-UL) for surface and storm water applications. This low-cost system is designed for remote site monitoring in stormwater vaults and outfalls, rivers/streams, lakes, reservoirs, canals, and is especially effective for flood-prone locations.

The FS-UL is a fully integrated system with data logging, redundant cellular communications, non-volatile memory, and an integrated ultrasonic sensor. It is delivered with all necessary parts including a high gain antenna, battery pack, mounting bracket, maintenance kit, and accessories providing fast, easy set-up.

The FS-UL brings new innovation to communication reliability with its redundant, wireless capability. The system will automatically access one of two providers, selecting the most efficient connection when communicating. This gives assurance that during critical events, communication continues. The FS-UL has measurement frequencies that are user selectable. Additionally, it contains four user-definable alarms providing ongoing remote site data and alerts.

The FS-UL delivers data to the cloud-based ADS PRISM™ software. The software manages data storage and data management. As well, users have tools for graphical visualization and analysis.

The system is designed for ease of installation and very low ongoing maintenance. It has a high power-density, long-life battery pack. Settings dependent, it can operate for up to four years without battery pack changes. Its compact 3.5-inch height x 4.9-inch diameter (90 mm H x 125 mm D) size enables both secure and inconspicuous mounting in remote locations. Device activation takes seconds with a simple swipe of its magnet. Moreover, it has a status LED to provide activation feedback.

FS-UL is available through comprehensive services where ADS’ technical teams perform installation, activation, any necessary field service, data monitoring, and reports. This approach assures that storm or surface monitoring programs are consistent and always reliable.

ADS® Enhances SLiiCER™ Integration with PRISM™ Software Suite for Improved Insights into I/I

ADS® Enhances SLiiCER™ Integration with PRISM™ Software Suite for Improved Insights into I/I

The upcoming release of SLiiCER™ analytics software for managing inflow and infiltration (I/I) will be previewed at WEFTEC in Chicago, IL October 2-4, 2023. The new SLiiCER builds on two decades of industry-leading capabilities by deepening integration and interoperability within our PRISM™ end-to-end, cloud-based collection system management suite.

The new SLiiCER in PRISM™ puts the power and control of Infiltration and Inflow (I/I) studies directly in your hands, providing the industry’s most trusted and complete I/I evaluation solution. SLiiCER makes it easy to evaluate your entire collection system as a single, end-to-end, interrelated entity, tracking down I/I to guide rehabilitation programs, eliminate overflows, and validate results. The SLiiCER app, as a valuable addition to the ADS PRISM platform, leverages the power of seamless data integration, trusted analytics, and flexible reporting in a single, unified platform.

This enhanced integration between SLiiCER and PRISM provides greater flexibility for collection system engineers and managers to interactively see and evaluate relationships between various factors that impact I/I.  These include data on rainfall events, understanding wet or dry weather conditions, defining basin properties, and more.

SLiiCER automatically calculates wet and dry weather sewer flow parameters of interest, including both gross and net parameters, associated with rainfall events of interest, and allows the user to visualize them through a variety of graphical displays. Built in visualization tools include Dry Day Hydrographs, Storm Event Hydrographs, and Q-vs-i graphs, along with the ability to control settings and vary assumptions.

Designed with flexibility to serve the needs of both municipal engineers and consulting engineers, the new SLiiCER and PRISM integration can provide both quick answers for real-time sewer management and more detailed answers for rigorous analysis and planning studies.

Depending on your specific requirements and whether you are currently using SLiiCER and/or PRISM, the ADS engineering team can quickly map out an optimal path forward.  Or if you are starting from scratch, the combination of SLiiCER and PRISM can quickly open up a whole new range of insights into your collection system.

The INCLINOMETER sensor utilizes an integrated accelerometer in a sealed and intrinsically safe housing to accurately determine the state of a flood gate’s positioning in water control and management systems. It is easily installed and supports a variety of sensor orientations.

Accelerometer-based angle detection
The INCLINOMETER measures the angle opening (+/-) of a flood gate in harsh environments. The angle measurement of the gate is logged at synchronous intervals based on the ADS TRITON+® data recording rate. If the opening (angle) exceeds a user-defined threshold an alert will be sent to notify the end user of the event.
The INCLINOMETER sensor provides users with a rugged, precise measurement of movement for gates, hatches, valves or doors utilized in wastewater collection systems. It can be used in the following applications:
  • Real-Time Alarming of CSO Activations – The movement data is essential for real-time alarming of CSO activations, particularly in areas that experience tidal or river influenced overflows. In these situations where receiving water bodies influence discharges, operators do not have certainty that overflows are occurring without the Inclinometer showing gates as open or closed. The INCLINOMETER can also identify gates that are stuck open or leaky, contributing additional flow to the treatment process.
  • Bending Weir Overflow Volumes – Use to directly measure overflow volume in a Bending Weir application by measuring the angle of the weir and the weir manufacturer-provided discharge table.
  • Intrusion Alarm – Use to provide intrusion alerts when mounted on doors or hatches in the wastewater collection system.
