Telog Instruments Inc., Victor, N.Y., the leading supplier of remote monitoring systems to the water markets, and Wallingford Software, Ltd., Oxfordshire, England, the leading developer of hydraulic modeling software for the water industry, have agreed to collaborate on the development of a real-time, networked water modeling application.
The application solution combines Telog’s Enterprise data acquisition system with Wallingford Software’s InfoWorks modeling software application to provide calibrated, real-time website hosted information on environment water events and forecast management. This will allow users and emergency response teams to more accurately deploy resources during storm events.
The development agreement, signed during WEFTEC ’07 in San Diego, will create an automatic data exchange interface between the companies’ application servers over a common data network, including the Internet. Telog’s Enterprise will source remote site information on collection system flows and overflows, rainfall and surface water levels to InfoWorks software to enable real-time calibration of the model. Users can then view the effects of a wet-weather event on river levels, wastewater collection and storm water systems as weather events occur with real time forecasting and warnings.
Tom Davies, president of Wallingford Software, Inc. said, “Real-time modeling and forecasting using remote data calibration available to users via the web is a key step toward achieving a more effective response to extreme weather events.”
Telog’s president, Barry Ceci, said, “This is a great example of two market leading products that when combined create an important new application solution that was not technically achievable independently.”
Davies said that the InfoWorks real-time model application with the integrated Telog remote data interface would be available for demonstration during the first quarter of next year.
