Is het niet eindelijk tijd om Get Smart OVER DRUKTESTEN?

Introducing the new SVI SMARTester — highly accurate Bluetooth pressure sensor.
Wales & 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, Wales & West Utilities collaborated with Steve Vick International (ALL), as part of a NIA project to develop the SMARTester.


De SVI SMARTester is een zeer nauwkeurige Bluetooth druksensor die gegevens overdraagt ​​naar een smartphone, tablet of laptop. Het toestaan ​​van bewijs traceerbaarheid, het biedt een eenvoudige, nauwkeurige manier om live drukproeven weer melden bij een kantoor databank.

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

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

Custom built App

De app

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.

Een on-board kalibratiecertificaat uniek zijn voor elk apparaat zorgt dat proef authenticiteit. Elke keer als de SMARTester is aangesloten op de telefoon of tablet, het certificaat wordt geverifieerd.

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. GPS-positie, drukmetingen, datum en tijd, samen met de ijking gegevens worden allemaal opgeslagen in het afdrukbare testrecord.
At the control centre, results arrive from the job site in seconds and reports may be exported as PDF files.
De database kan worden aangesloten op de bestaande enterprise resource programma's waarmee planning en taakbeheer volledig geïntegreerd te zijn. Test regimes zijn gemakkelijk om dat te bewerken dat de nieuwste industriële normen worden uitgerold naadloos, waardoor u tot op de minuut conformiteit.

Wales & 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.”
