Introducing the new SVI SMARTester — highly accurate Bluetooth pressure sensor.
Gales & West Utilities has built a first class reputation for safety within the industry. In seeking to improve on the conventional water gauge test used on new gas service supplies, Gales & West Utilities collaborated with Steve Vick International (ALL), as part of a NIA project to develop the SMARTester.


El SVI SMARTester es un sensor de alta precisión presión Bluetooth que transmite datos a un teléfono inteligente, tableta o portátil. Permitir que las pruebas de trazabilidad, que ofrece un sencillo, forma precisa para informar de las pruebas de presión en vivo de nuevo a una base de datos de oficina.

Built to withstand tough, wet and demanding environments, the SMARTester is extremely robust.
The digital stainless steel pressure sensor ensures accurate readings between 0 y 700 mbar, to accurate reading up to 1 bar and long distance connectivity allows the user to monitor pressure readings from up to 100 metros.

The device uses two standard AA batteries and offers a battery life in excess of a year.

Custom built App

La aplicación

The purpose built App displays live pressure data from the sensor and records test activity.
The App guides the user through the process, with a menu of industry specific test’s to choose from.
Live pressure data is recorded at the touch of a button and added to the test certificate.
A photograph of the meter location is included in the data to assist with asset management and precise positional information is recorded using the phone’s GPS.

Un certificado de calibración de a bordo única para cada dispositivo garantiza la autenticidad de prueba. Cada vez que el SMARTester está conectado al teléfono o tableta, el certificado se verifica.

The Cloud—back office Control Panel

The Dashboard

Data sent from the phone or tablet to the cloud is displayed in an easy to read dashboard where monthly statistics and real-time workforce analytics can be monitored. posición GPS, lecturas de la presión, fecha y hora junto con la información de calibración se almacenan en el registro de prueba para imprimir.
At the control centre, results arrive from the job site in seconds and reports may be exported as PDF files.
La base de datos se puede conectar a los programas de recursos empresariales existentes que permiten la programación y gestión de tareas para ser totalmente integrado. regímenes de prueba son fáciles de editar de manera que los últimos estándares de la industria se implanten sin problemas hasta asegurar la conformidad minutos.

Gales & West Utilities comments:

“Demanding safety always for customers and colleagues is a priority for us and since we started operations in 2005, we’ve built an award winning reputation based on keeping customers and colleagues safe and delivering outstanding service.

“Previously, pressure testing new gas supplies to homes and businesses was done by using water gauges.
Working alongside Steve Vick International, we have developed a tool and associated smartphone app that not only allows accurate pressure testing it also provides a digital record as evidence that a pressure test has been done – and its result.

“Using the SVI SMARTester will mean the 300,000 gas tightness readings we do every year will be even more accurate, allowing us to identify potential problems with gas supplies earlier on and making sure we can continue to keep the 7.5m people we serve safe and warm.”
