In the fast-evolving landscape of wastewater management, innovation is not just a buzzword; it’s a necessity. As industry professionals, we understand the challenges of ensuring compliance, optimising efficiency, and mitigating risks in an increasingly complex regulatory environment. That’s why we’re excited to introduce a groundbreaking solution that promises to revolutionise event duration monitoring (EDM) and fill a crucial gap in the market.

Detectronic, a leading provider of wastewater monitoring solutions, has unveiled the UK’s first battery-powered level device to meet the rigorous standards of the MCERTS EDM certification. This achievement marks a significant milestone in the industry, representing two years of intensive testing, research, and refinements to ensure compliance with the strict requirements of the standard.

What sets this solution apart is its remarkable precision and reliability. The sensor boasts an impressive 1mm accuracy, coupled with a rapid 2-minute logging rate, providing real-time insights into wastewater levels with unparalleled granularity. This level of precision is essential for detecting even the slightest fluctuations in flow, enabling proactive management and timely intervention to prevent potential issues.

But the innovation doesn’t stop there. Unlike existing mains-powered solutions that often require expensive civil works for installation, Detectronic’s battery-powered device offers a cost-effective alternative, especially for remote locations where access to power infrastructure may be limited. This opens up new possibilities for monitoring in areas previously deemed impractical or economically unviable, empowering utilities to expand their monitoring capabilities and enhance coverage across their networks.

One of the key advantages of this solution is its low maintenance requirements. The LIDoTT MCERTS EDM monitor is designed for hassle-free operation, requiring minimal upkeep to ensure optimal performance. Moreover, its long-lasting battery can power the device for over five years, providing uninterrupted monitoring without the need for frequent battery replacements or maintenance visits.

At Detectronic, we recognise the importance of innovation in driving positive change and advancing the sustainability of wastewater management practices. Our battery-powered EDM monitor represents a significant leap forward in the quest for smarter, more efficient monitoring solutions that deliver tangible benefits to utilities, regulators, and communities alike.

As industry experts, we have a responsibility to embrace innovation and leverage technology to address the complex challenges facing the wastewater sector. Detectronic’s pioneering solution exemplifies this commitment, offering a glimpse into the future of wastewater monitoring and paving the way for a more resilient, sustainable future.

The introduction of Detectronic’s battery-powered MCERTS EDM monitor marks a pivotal moment in the evolution of wastewater monitoring technology. With its unparalleled precision, affordability, and reliability, this innovative solution promises to transform the way we monitor and manage wastewater, ensuring compliance, optimising performance, and protecting our environment for the times ahead.
