SAFEgroup Automation's Top Five Blog Posts of 2020

Updated: Jan 27, 2021

Faced with bushfires, floods and a global pandemic, 2020 was definitely a challenging year for everyone. We have, however, made to the other side and are well and truly into the new year. At SAFEgroup Automation (SGA) we have decided to recap the highlights of the year that was and go over our top five most-read blog posts of 2020.

So, let's take a look:

The addition of the Clamnet® to our suite of Smart Utilities solutions has taken out our number one spot for the most read post during 2020.

​The Clamnet® is an integrated water quality system designed for portable water distribution monitoring, with logging water quality measurements being its primary function.

There are also interface options available to retrieve data from the unit via a Bluetooth interface. The CAT M1 NB IoT Modem transmits data to the Clamnet® Portal for data visualisation.

Coming in second place is the announcement of our partnership with the progressive water monitoring technology, Syrinix, another Smart Utilities solution that was added to our suite in 2020.

Syrinix has been leading the industry in intelligent pipeline monitoring for over 16 years. Its innovative PIPEMINDER technology offers serviced solutions, covering clean water and wastewater networks and pipelines. These innovative solutions enable water companies to detect, and then mitigate issues on the water pipe network before they become more serious failures.

Coming in at number three is our blog post that compares the differences between traditional SCADA reporting (such as XLDirect or Crystal Reports) and WaterOutlook reports.

This post goes over the most common questions we get from a lot of SCADA end-users who are considering the WaterOutlook system.
