Brisbane, Australia (PRWEB) September 2, 2009
MultiTrode, the specialist in technology for water and wastewater utilities, is pleased to announce the release of firmware version 2.2.1 for its MultiSmart product family.
V2.2.1 further extends the impressive pump station management capabilities of the MultiSmart to enable greater efficiencies, provide additional security and new environmental related enhancements.
"This latest increment of the MultiSmart system allows our partners and end-users to further enhance or adapt the capability of MultiSmart," said Wayne Patterson, MultiTrode Group CEO. "The existing functionality set in the product is already very extensive, but there are always customers and applications that push the envelope."
Patterson continued, "We are very excited to be able to continue to deliver on our commitment to making the MultiSmart as intuitive, efficient and open as we possibly can; whilst still allowing full end-to-end management of pumping stations through a powerful and comprehensive set of functionality".
Firmware version 2.2.1 includes more intuitive support for integrating third-party drive systems; support for the Dallas iButton security key; extended mixer control functionality; extensions to efficiency alarming, support for further I/O - including rain-gauges; additional alternation modes; improved 'time-to-spill' calculations; updated run-time and flow statistics as well as a host of smaller feature enhancements and stabilisation improvements.
Scott Martin, Software Architect for MultiSmart said, "This release was aimed towards Reducing Carbon Footprint and Improving Efficiency. We believe the new features in v.2.2.1 not only achieve those aims within the MultiSmart itself - for example, through improved and extended pump efficiency and class-leading flow and volume calculations; but go beyond that with even easier and open integration with third-party hardware allowing benefits across the broader network too."
