How it Works

The LG Sonic Monitoring Buoy is a low cost solution for environmental monitoring in drinking water reservoirs, cooling reservoirs and (recreational) lakes

1. Monitor Water Quality

Monitoring Buoy provides a complete overview of the water quality by collecting the following parameters every 10 minutes: • Chlorophyll α (green algae) • Phycocyanin (blue-green algae) • pH • Turbidity • Dissolved Oxygen •Temperature

2. View Data in Software

The collected data is delivered in real-time via 3G to a user friendly web-based software. The software allows users to set up specific automatic alarms to inform about changing algae and/or water parameters, or maintenance activities

3. Predict Algal Blooms

The collected data is delivered in real-time via 3G to an algae management software called MPC-View. Based on the algorithm developed in cooperation with research institutes, the system can predict algal blooms between 3-10 days in advance.

Ultrasonic Algae Control Benefits

In-line water quality sensors

The LG Sonic Monitoring Buoy contains detailed monitoring equipment. The following sensors can be included: Chlorophyll α (green algae), Phycocyanin (blue-green algae), pH, Turbidity, Dissolved Oxygen, and Temperature.

Ultrasonic Algae Control Benefits

Low power consumption

LG Sonic Monitoring Buoy makes use of low power (5-20 Watts). The system is self-supporting of power by using solar energy.

Ultrasonic Algae Control Benefits

Smart communication system

GSM/Radio Antenne allows to delivering data in real-time to the customers.

Ultrasonic Algae Control Benefits

Hosted web-based software package

The hosted MPC-View software allows users to visually follow the water quality. The software allows users to set up specific alarms to inform about changing parameters.

Ultrasonic Algae Control Benefits

Reliable data acquisition system

Communication between the water quality sensors and the web-based server (MPC-View). It includes a 12v power pack for the data logger, telemetry and powering instruments.

Ultrasonic Algae Control Benefits

Easy to install and maintain

The LG Sonic Monitoring Buoy is a light weight, robust data buoy that is easy to handle during transport, deployment, maintenance and recovery.

Advanced water quality Software

The monitored data is delivered in real-time through radio, GPRS, or 3G to the web-based software.

Customers can log into the software, where they will find a personal dashboard displaying an overview of the water quality.  The software allows users to set up specific alarms to inform about changing parameters. An early detection of algae growth allows plant operators to take preventive measurements.
