Smart Water Intelligent networking for future-oriented water management

New constantly emerging requirements due to climate change, drinking water shortages, and an aging water infrastructure place even greater pressure on operators responsible for water supply, wastewater disposal, and drinking water treatment. There is also the growing demand for network technologies and Smart Water applications to contend with, as the future of water management is going digital.

Benefit from our digital technology and open systems for safer and more efficient processes in water management. With our global team and collaboration projects with industry partners, we develop intelligent solutions that enable the networking of components, system parts, and people with the environment and water cycle.

With increasing awareness of climate change and sustainability in society, the focus is turning to water management. Challenges such as falling water table levels, increasing pollution, microplastics, and more frequent storms are causing an increase in requirements. Smart Water solutions from Phoenix Contact offer a new level of transparency, efficiency, and protection for this valuable resource.

 Digitalization of water and wastewater treatment

IoT-based water technology Solutions for the digitalization of the water cycle

It is not just water that flows in modern treatment plants; there is also a stream of large volumes of data. The challenge lies in presenting the digital information in a meaningful format and linking the resulting complexity of the various volumes of data together logically.

Internet of Things structures open up the opportunity for storing and processing information in an external computer network. A wide range of data, such as rainfall levels, can be incorporated as a basis for making decisions. A real-time overview can be obtained from anywhere, at any time, and on any device.

With our industry and technological experience, you can rely on Phoenix Contact to assist you as you navigate the demanding and growing Smart Water market. Benefit from IoT structures, the associated processing power, and services in order to create more transparent and resource-conserving processes and applications in future for the entire water cycle.
