With the steady growth in global population and the worldwide impact of climate change, there is a rise in demand for the essential and vital natural resource, water. To meet this demand, it is critical that water is treated immediately after use so that it can be available for safe use again. This requires more sophisticated, more effective processes that must be implemented and carried out simultaneously – as economically as possible.
To overcome these challenges, ifm offers reliable and innovative automation solutions. While always considering current trends and requirements, it searches for the best possible solutions for tomorrow, ensuring that security and future viability are guaranteed in equal measure.
The advantage of automation solutions
Due to the increasing scarcity and value of freshwater resources, it is important to operate plants as effectively as possible along the entire cycle. ifm solutions, comprise hardware and software, ensuring plants operate at Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE).
The benefit from the added value of digital data communication with IO-Link. Hardware components from the sensor to the IT level, monitors the health status and maintenance requirements of the plant process system at all times, resulting in minimum downtime due to unexpected shutdowns.
The more precise the plant data, the more efficiently can water be treated to the required quality. This requires precise sensor technology, the structures for loss-free digital data transmission via IO-Link and software for a simple, transparent dialogue with the treatment plant.
Even the slightest error in water treatment corresponds to the loss of a precious resource. With ifm solutions for continuous quality analysis and for a transparent overview and control of all automation components involved in the process, water quality can be reliably safeguarded over the long term.
