Waterscan Chooses COMLog Wireless Data Loggers from HWM for Commercial Water Management

Waterscan works with companies such as Whitbread, Tesco, Sainsbury’s, BT and New Look to monitor and manage their water consumption – preserving a valuable natural resource, minimising wastage and improving cost efficiencies. With nearly 20 years of experience in water management, the company has tried many different data loggers and logging technologies, and has concluded that the COMLog is the best choice currently available.

Market-leading functionality, features and performance helped the product stand out, with reliable wireless communication a major factor: even where other loggers failed due to poor GSM coverage, COMLog continued to perform with its choice of external antennae and roaming SIM cards noted as especially useful.

In addition to the product’s qualities, Waterscan’s Technical Manager John Larder also noted how impressed the company had been with HWM’s Technical Support services, describing them as: “Excellent, the training session on COMLog last year was great – we were really impressed with HWM’s enthusiasm and professionalism.”

HWM Welcomes Acquisition of ASL Holdings Ltd

HWM-Water Ltd is pleased to welcome ASL Holdings Ltd (ASL) to its group of companies following the acquisition of ASL by Halma plc. HWM-Water Limited, is a global leader in the manufacture of data loggers and leak detection products for the water industry, within Halma’s Environmental & Analysis sector. Existing management will remain in place with Bill Berry continuing in his role as Managing Director of ASL. Bill will join the board of HWM-Water Ltd, led by Rob Fish, to grow the combined operation of HWM and ASL for remotely monitored assets via the mobile telephone network.

ASL, based in Northampton, UK, designs and manufactures machine-to-machine (M2M) communication products which are incorporated into SMART electricity and solar power meters for remote data monitoring and a range of other applications in the utility, transport and retail sectors. ASL currently manages over 200,000 SIM connections.

HWM-Water Ltd, based in Cwmbran, South Wales, produces cost saving water and energy management solutions for a wide range of customers which include the majority of water customers in the UK and around the world. The Radcom data logger within HWM’s product portfolio provides 24 hour flow monitoring via the GPRS mobile telephone network. HWM has recently secured a number of high volume remote telemetry unit framework projects with UK water companies and now has over 30,000 SIM connections sending data up to 96 times per day.

Rob Fish, Divisional Managing Director of HWM-Water Ltd, says “This is a great acquisition for Halma and a good fit with HWM-Water Ltd.

HWM Adds New Alarm Response and Remote Access Features to Wireless Dataloggers

HWM has recently introduced innovative improvements to its MultiLog and LX telemetry data loggers that offer new benefits to users, particularly with regard to remote maintenance, programming and alarm response. Once installed, the devices do not need to be physically accessed again for up to 5 years, but can still have settings changed and software updated through their integrated telemetry.

The two-way communication feature enables customers to update and upgrade their dataloggers remotely. This removes the requirement for expensive and time consuming site visits, and effectively makes the loggers “future proof” by ensuring that customers receive the immediate benefit of any new functionality.

In addition to remote upgrading, users can now reprogram the settings on their HWM loggers from any internet enabled device, again removing the need to physically extract the logger from the ground to do so. Alarm trigger points and reporting intervals can now be changed from the comfort of the home or office, which enables the user to always have the most appropriate settings without spending time or money visiting the installation.

HWM has also introduced an innovative accelerated dial-in feature that responds to an alarm condition. When an alarm is triggered, the logger automatically begins to transmit data more frequently to enable a more detailed analysis of the situation. Alerts can be sent to up 16 specified telephone numbers, which enables prompt and effective action to be taken. This intelligent alarm response can be particularly useful when, for example, the logger is connected to a SonicSens ultrasonic level measurement device over an open channel or sewer overflow. As levels rise above the alarm threshold, the increased data transmission rate will assist the response team in monitoring the rate of increase and potential flood risk during the incident. When the level falls below the alarm trigger threshold, the logger automatically returns to its normal dial-in parameters, as set by the user.

HWM data loggers already play an important role in monitoring the environment and identifying wastage in order to minimise negative environmental impact. By enabling users to upgrade firmware and change settings “over the air” instead of having to drive to the site, and by providing accelerated monitoring in response to alarms, the equipment is now more environmentally friendly than ever before.
