In Brazil, the main product of WIKON is a service on water monitoring, the WaterBox. This IoT system is capable to generate alarms in case of leakage and broken pipelines by observing remotely the consumption behavior of the water supply network, even on areas where the GPRS or GSM systems are badly available. Moreover, the monitoring on water, the supervision of the distribution and the stock of dry and wet bulk materials has the potential on opening new segments. Those areas and others innovative projects summed around 50 thousand equipment connections to WIKON's Global Data Center.
The WaterBox is a complete solution for supervision on water systems, whatever if it is confined in a pipeline or exposed, for example in a dam. Its hardware is projected to be autonomous on extern energy sources, avowing infrastructure modifications or the use of unstable electricity grids. In a durable, compact box, the WaterBox operates with a long-term battery (at least 4 years’ duration) and a telecommunication SIM card. This makes the system the ideal choice for applications where infrastructure of energy and telecommunication are precarious or inexistent. The hardware can be easily installed via Plug & Play, almost dismisses the installation by a specialist and none local alteration of the infrastructure is needed for standard applications.
In the most recent partnership with a Brazilian company, the WaterBox System of WIKON monitors the water consumption of some special clients of SABESP in São Paulo. Supported by our partner NIVETEC, water hydrometers installed in areas of restrict access, like prisons, and at isolated points of the water supply chain, have their consumption remotely reported with the WaterBox. This complete application enable the clients to reduce operational costs on billing and on maintenance.
