Process Instruments (Pi) South Africa News.
The latest controllers from Pi are now complete and available for purchase from your local distributor. Pi has been working on the new CRONOS® and Version 3 CRIUS® for nearly three years and they bring a new level of functionality, flexibility and affordability to the analyser, controller market.
The two new controllers bring an extremely capable set of electronics to the water quality analyser market introducing a number of new features including;
- Mobile phone style intuitive navigation,
- Proactive maintenance warnings on all sensors,
- 20 individual security passwords with flexible permissions,
- State of the art “group” datalogs for ease of export and analysis in a spreadsheet.
When asked what new feature he was most proud of, Pi’s Development Director Dr. Craig Stracey referred to the underlying code structure, “The way we have written the code for this latest version of Pi’s analyser family means that it is extremely robust, upgrades easily, is very intuitive to use and looks great!”
When asked how his customers were receiving it, Pi’s territory manager for the Far East Dr. Rob Paramore commented “They love it! It’s very easy to use for them and the operators, yet it has a whole bunch of really great features. The PID control is superb and there are some great features like the downloadable service file which is a human readable file with every setting on the analyser recorded. It’s fabulous for help with service or setup issues and is great to have as a backup. They’ve been really well received.”
The new CRONOS® and CRIUS® have now been shipped all over the world and are fully equipped with extensive I/O, datalogging and PID controls. A world beating cloud based remote […]
A swimming pool controller from Pi has been installed by Link Automation at Owen J Roberts Middle School, Pennsylvania.
The CRIUS® AquaSense at the school’s 25 yard competition pool monitors for ORP, pH and Free Chlorine, with displays for all of these as well as temperature. Using the 4-20mA output, they are also displaying the pH and Chlorine levels on the pool deck, in real time on an external LED display.
The AquaSense controller is managing the High Capacity Feed (HCF) Chlorination System, and is maintaining within 0.02ppm and 0.01pH under almost all conditions using an eduction feed of both bleach and muriatic acid.
Bintech take Pi’s new controller to the Water Industry Operators Association of Australia (WIOA) Conference
Last year, Pi’s Australian partner Bintech attended the WIOA’s 78th Victorian Water Industry Operations Conference and Exhibition held in Bendigo, Victoria, and showed off Pi’s new controller as part of their stand.
The conference held on the 2nd and 3rd September, was attended by over 1300 water industry employees and gave them a chance to network and discuss ideas and issues while sharing their latest developments and technologies.
The WIOA conferences aim to provide the opportunity to meet with other water industry professionals to discuss the latest advances in the industry regarding technical equipment, products and services, by sharing knowledge and skills through interactions, presentations and company stands.
Bintech have started supplying Pi’s third generation CRONOS and CRIUS controllers across Australia, specialising in free and total chlorine analysers, ozone analysers, dissolved oxygen monitors, turbidity/suspended solids meters, pH meters and ORP meters.
Swimming Pool Controllers (AquaSense) from Pi have been chosen by Link Automation to be offered to their existing and new customers.
Link Automation, based in New Jersey, have now installed more than ten AquaSense across the North East of America and have been so pleased with the results that they are private labelling the instrument and making it their primary offering for the pool industry.
When asked why Link had chosen the AquaSense swimming pool controller from Pi, Chris Tedeschi of Link Automation said, “We have been looking for a great quality controller with the option of using ORP or chlorine sensors for the main pool control for a little while and having installed more than ten of Pi’s AquaSense we are convinced we’ve found it. The quality of the sensors is absolutely great and that leads to perfect pool control and happy customers. There are also some great features like full cloud based remote access.”
When asked about the expansion into the North America Swimming Pool Market Mike Riding, Pi’s Managing Director said “The American Pool Market provides particular challenges with some very established players. Pi is very happy to work directly with Link Automation in the North East of the US. Link are a very professional team with a reputation for quality and service, and we are confident that we will make significant inroads into the commercial pool market as we offer a number of benefits over our more established competitors, including Variable Frequency Drive control that can provide the user with significant energy cost savings!”
Pi is currently actively seeking Pool Supplier partnerships with companies who service the Pool Industry in other areas of […]
The Singapore Government run PUB purchased two CRONOS® HaloSense free chlorine analysers for use on their main site, and one CRONOS® HaloSense zero chlorine analyser for use on one of their smaller sites.
Pi’s HaloSense range of chlorine controllers can be used in many applications requiring chlorine control and measurement in, for example, potable water, seawater, process water, swimming pool water, waste water, food washing and a range of waters in the paper and pulp industry. They are stable and reliable, bufferless and reagentless with a reduced pH dependency, at a low purchase cost and low cost of ownership.
Singapore’s PUB manages all of Singapore’s water supply and is responsible for the collection, production, distribution and reclamation of water. Fifty years ago, Singapore struggled with water shortages due to lack of natural water resources and pollution in rivers. The Singapore Government have turned that around by investing and building a robust, sustainable water supply.
