"We wanted to connect our products to the Internet of Things so that customers could monitor basin performance and operation, and tweak operation of our dosing systems (IFOD's). This would largely eliminate the need to send workers onsite to obtain readings and manually treat water. After exploring several approaches, it became clear that Xively Cloud Services provided the power, flexibility and simplicity we needed," said
"We're excited that Turbid is using the Xively IoT cloud to power its next-generation water treatment products," said
By connecting its stormwater treatment solutions to Xively Cloud Services, Turbid is able to offer a highly competitive, differentiated solution that helps mining and construction customers: * Monitor and remotely manage performance of sediment basins 24 hours a day.
* Access real-time water quality data that can be reported on and shared with subcontractors and regulators.
* Avoid the hassles, cost and inaccuracies of manual data collection processes.
"We are delighted to see an Australian business embracing the opportunity to develop innovative products for its customers using Xively," said
Xively provides the first public cloud purpose-built for the commercial Internet of Things (IoT). Xively's Platform as a Service (PaaS) helps companies simplify and accelerate development of a new generation of IoT-connected products by allowing businesses of all sizes to focus on their innovation, instead of infrastructure, and bring compelling connected offerings to market at significant cost savings. Through the power of Xively's Connected Object Cloud(tm), solutions can securely and selectively interconnect, creating an exponential effect. A subsidiary of
Turbid has developed a system to replace the standard sediment basin used on landfills, quarries, mines and construction sites to treat sediment-laden water. Compared to the industry standard, the Turbid solution occupies a smaller footprint (up to 75% less), removes up to five times as much sediment (up to 99% load removal), and can be operated almost completely on a passive basis at a lower total cost than standard sediment basins.
