ITT Water & Wastewater supports new telemetry standards

Posted: Wednesday 10th March 2010

ITT Water & Wastewater has welcomed a new initiative which aims to bring standardisation to water industry telemetry communication.

The Water Industry Telemetry Standards (WITS), which will be launched on March 18th this year at Anglian Water Services offices, Henderson House, Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, aim to evolve current technologies to a point where any remote field device is able to communicate with any telemetry system. The standardisation will be achieved via a defined set of communication standards and protocol which will ensure that any approved field device will be able to communicate with any approved telemetry master system and vice versa.

ITT Water & Wastewater, the UK’s premier solutions provider for the transportation and treatment of water and wastewater, is a founder member of the WITS project working as part of the vendor team which created the WITS protocol, working alongside the user community.

Guy Fitzpatrick, Market Development Manager for Monitoring and Control, welcomed the new standards: “These new standards will ensure that users have much more freedom to select from a wide variety of field devices for use on their systems, ensuring the elimination of costly protocol emulations and, in turn, ensuring increased competition. We believe both vendors and users will benefit from these new standards and ITT Water & Wastewater is delighted to support this initiative.”
