Orbis Intelligent Systems has signed a multi-year distribution agreement with Aquip Systems, an Australia-based provider of measurement and data collection systems to the oil and gas, mining, marine, HVAC, water and chemical industries.
This three-year agreement will see the Orbis Prodigy and Prodigy UltraPipe intelligent monitoring devices being brought to the Australian market.
The non-invasive Prodigy product line gets easily affixed to the outside of pipes. It employs the latest IoT technology to send data through cellular connection to infrastructure managers.
A battery-powered bolt-on device, the UltraPipe measures the flow within existing hydrant standpipes.
It enables utilities to understand how much water is being taken from temporary standpipes, and when, where and by whom.
This feature is essential given that the industry is addressing non-revenue water and working to ensure a single drop of water is accounted for and billed.
Orbis president Danny Krywyj said: “We’re delighted to be working with Aquip Systems. As a well-established leader in the industry, there’s no better partner to bring the Prodigy line to the Australian market.”
Aquip managing director Jodie Draper said: “Smart technologies like the Prodigy are clearly the future of infrastructure management.
“We’re looking forward to bringing the newest asset management technologies to our customers, enabling them to work more efficiently and enhancing their decision-making processes.”
