Lamentablemente hasta ahora la implementación de soluciones de telemetría ha sido limitada a pocas organizaciones de usuarios, y en éstos generalmente a sólo unos pocos puntos de medición, limitando el valor creado y el retorno sobre la inversión de estos proyectos.
Las razones que hemos identificado son:
Complete automation solution for pre-existing canal gates.
Capta Canal Flow Control
The implementation for the automatization of canal gates has similar challenges to that of telemetry of water flow, therefore it has also been limited to few irrigation networks, and of these few, just a handfull of them have total control in the network, this way limiting the value created and the return on investment.
For this reasons, Capta Hydro we have developed an automatization solution:
With the integration of Capta CFC automatic gates and AMARU software, it is possible to determine the flows that are delivered accurately and automatically.
Design characteristics equivalent to a safe box, installation witth expansion screws and enabled with anti theft alerts and resistance against damaging threats.
Remote and quick regulation of gates
With just a click the mobile or web app, users can control gate operation without lengthy personnel travel times, greatly improving reaction times against emergecies.
Lower cost compared to alternatives
Using pre-existing infrastructure reduces total implementation cost, allowing for quicker modernization of a river or irrigation canal with less capital and time investment
Automation system for pre-existing gates
The automation of canal gates is a key tool to improve operational efficiency in river management, irrigation canals and hydroelectric generation.
In rivers and networks of irrigation channels, an increase in the number of automated gates translates into reductions in operational costs and improvements in efficiency and effectiveness in water delivery. This allows to free up time of the operating personnel and ensures that water flows are always at the desired level.
For hydroelectric plants, it improves security by being able to face emergencies - such as floods - instantly.
