LG Sonic is working on the development of a new solution to monitor water quality at different depths in a water body, called MPC-Lab. The system will communicate with MPC-View, a user-friendly cloud software that stores and analyses all received water quality data.
Innovation as strategy
The development of the MPC-Lab highlights LG Sonic’s approach to the water industry market, offering innovative solutions that use water quality data and environmentally friendly technologies to provide a complete solution. In 2014, LG Sonic introduced the MPC-Buoy, a unique solution for controlling algae in large water reservoirs in an environmentally friendly way by combining water quality data and LG Sonic ultrasound technology.
Measuring water quality at different depths
LG Sonic MPC-Lab will combine the most innovate methods to monitor water quality. MPC-Lab can be pre-set to take samples from different depths in a water body and measure any parameters on the platform. For data transmission with the MPC-View water quality software, the system will use GPRS, 3G, or satellite. MPC-View water quality software allows to generate a complete overview of the water quality of one or multiple water bodies.
From Chlorophyll a to PO4 (Phosphate)
To offer a complete overview of the water quality, MPC-lab will monitor the following parameters, PO4 (Phosphate), NO3 (Nitrate), NH4 (Ammonium), Chlorophyll a, and COD (Chemical oxygen demand) etc. The water quality sensors are equipped with a wiper mechanism for automatic cleaning of the sensors after each reading, keeping the maintenance to a minimum and the readings accurate.
