AcowaCore and AcowaDash
AcowaCore and AcowaDash from ACOWA INSTRUMENTS is a data processing program as well as and visualization platform that collects and displays data about water management in a simple and userfriendly way.
What is AcowaCore and AcowaDash?
AcowaCore and AcowaDash, developed by ACOWA INSTRUMENTS, are powerful tools for data processing and visualization in the field of water management.
On one hand, AcowaCore serves as the core data processing program – that collects and manages data related to water monitoring.
On the other hand, AcowaDash acts as a visualization platform for AcowaCore, enabling seamless display of data in a clear and intuitive manner.
AcowaCore - powerful ability to collect and process data
AcowaCore offers a strong advantage in collecting and processing data from devices like FIREFLY and GEKKO. When data is collected it then transmits it to different systems, including AcowaDash, SCADA and 3rd-party programs.
Secondly, AcowaCore excels at handling event-based logs from the GEKKO. It presents this data in a SCADA-compatible format, particularly valuable for efficient recording and calculation of overflow events.
Thirdly, AcowaCore centralizes the processing of data about overflow structures, edge profiles, and conditions. This consolidation within the program enhances data management and consistency.
Visionary solutions with AcowaCore Pro
There is also a pro version of AcowaCore – which is the AcowaCore Pro. This version offers visionary solutions by enabling effortless adjustments to calculation methods as well as centralized set-point changes. An approach which saves time, while ensuring seamless updates.
At the same time, it can extract and convert data from the users’ own SCADA system. Subsequently facilitating accurate flow calculations across all pumping stations as well as overflow structures – both past and future.
Overall the platform provides valuable insights including capacity, inlet profiles, overflow predictions and anomaly detection. These insights empower users to optimize operations through well-informed decisions.
AcowaDash - an intuitive visualization platform
AcowaDash is a visualization platform for AcowaCore. With its an intuitive interface, AcowaDash seamlessly transforms complex data from pump wells into clear insights. In detail, AcowaDash can gather and present essential information from capacity calculations to overflow events, including inlet flow, precipitation data, as well as hydrogen sulfide data.
Moreover, AcowaDash simplifies comprehensive reporting, by including rapid identification of unauthorized water, while ensuring effortless data extraction via CSV files. All in all, by through using AcowaDash, you can elevate your understanding of pump well systems significantly.
