Remote locations and large networks of water quality measurement points, can make water quality monitoring an expensive task. Traditionally, engineers would visit a site and manually monitor the water quality instrumentation.
Unless you’re lucky or have immediate customers complaints (and unlucky), the traditional approach isn’t capable of alerting you to water quality issues as they happen. In some cases it can take weeks and months for the issues to be highlighted, and longer before an engineer is available to rectify them.
We work with the people who make water quality sensors and instrumentation
By working with manufacturers of water quality sensors and instrumentation, we can provide real time water quality data from existing, trusted water quality sensors and instrumentation.
What we actually do is provide M2M Remote Terminal Units that integrate with existing sensors and instrumentation (See EXAMPLE 1). Using the mobile phone network these units seamlessly transfer data from the point of measurement to secure servers. Water quality data is then accessible via the CDLSmartHub, a Software as a Service (SaaS) platform for data management, visualisation, and reporting, or we can deliver the data in real time to existing data management systems through an API (See EXAMPLE 2).
EXAMPLE 1: Working with a leading manufacturer of sensing equipment we integrated GSM based remote telemetry to their existing Portable Turbidity Monitoring equipment which introduced a truly innovative Remote Turbidity Monitoring System, which is now being used by virtually all of the major UK water companies.
EXAMPLE 2: Working with Yorkshire Water’s Real Time Data Specialists, we were able to leverage their existing data management system, providing real time water quality data direct from our servers through an API.

CASE STUDY – real time data integration with Yorkshire Water’s Pi System
Since 2008 Caption Data Limited have been working with ATi UK to provide telemetry for a range of instrumentation. The latest application sees Caption Data’s RDL//nano integrated onboard ATi’s disruptive Turbidity monitoring technology.
Working with YW’s Real-Time Data Development Specialist, Caption Data were able to provide instant access to data as soon as it’s available, through a simple but secure connection between YW servers and their own.
Steve McGuin, YW’s Real Time Data Specialist says “Ease of integration is what we’re about. We were able to implement data from the CDLSmartHub against our standard structure by connecting our servers with Caption Data servers.”Read more
