Detectronic Win Most Innovative Instrument Award at WWEM 2022

Nov 08 2022

At this year’s WWEM exhibition, Detectronic’s LIDoTT Smart Sensor received the award for Most Innovative Instrument, Product or Digital Solution. At International Environmental Technology, we wanted to hear some more about the sensor and find out why Detectronic were interested in exhibiting at WWEM, so we chatted with Sales Manager Oliver Harrison.

“The LIDoTT Smart Sensor uses dual-sensor technology connected to a logging device that communicates via Cat-M1, 2g, 4g – whatever it may be. It’s designed to be installed approximately fifty to a hundred millimetres above the crown of the pipe. It monitors your dry-weather flow using an ultrasonic sensor and also measures any surcharge conditions, so you get a full range of data, from the invert of the pipe right up to the cover-level. When the water-level rises to reach a certain point, the sensor automatically switches from an ultrasonic to a pressure sensor, giving you accurate level-measurement data. The unit is connected to an external battery pack for ease of replacing. For some of the water utilities that have our sensor installed, its logging a two-minute sample-rate and communicates on an hourly basis, but even on that regime we still expect to get three to five years battery life out of the system. It was designed for predictive analytics within sewer networks, enabling users to see any kind of trend-analysis or any deviations from a typical trend. These measurements are then fed into analytical platforms, which is helping preventing blockages and flooding events.”

When we asked about why Detectronic chose to exhibit at WWEM, Oliver was to-the-point: “We’ve come to WWEM because it’s the largest wastewater exhibition in the UK, and we like to showcase our products at the largest wastewater exhibition in the UK!”

In 2024, WWEM will return bigger and better, graduating to the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) in Birmingham. For information on exhibiting at WWEM 2024, click here.
