A dedicated water and wastewater system
based on your needs

The foundation of Cactus Eye is an ultramodern supervisory system, SCADA/ DCS. It provides excellent opportunities for increased integration and coordination between the departments in your organization. And it also offers tools for gaining an overview of the water and wastewater operations.

Scalable and flexible

Cactus Eye is powerful enough to cope with the largest plants, large municipalities and beyond. But it is also scalable enough to suit the very smallest plants. Cactus Eye is available in three versions: Lite, Focus and Premium. The best version for you depends on the required functionality and the size of your plant: the number of connected control systems and signals, workplaces and servers. Cactus Eye and our substations jointly provide a single distributed control system, DCS. The substations are integrated in our system solutions and offer outstandingly simple maintenance and remote support.

 

Needless to say, Cactus Eye can also be run as a SCADA system for other brands of substations and PLC/RTUs. Authorized personnel can run Cactus Eye on whichever device they choose: workstation, on-call work computer, smartphone, tablet, Linux or Mac computer. Cactus Eye is also available as an app for Android phones. Ideal for distributing and acknowledging alarms or for sending messages between operating personnel.

New interface based on research

The interface in Cactus Eye is based on the latest research in the field of HMI (HumanMachine Interface), on the guidelines for High Performance HMI and on many detailed user tests. Process images from CSX and Uni-View can be transferred to Cactus Eye using the existing layout.

 

Alarms and events

Cactus Eye stores all the events that take place in your plant – for several years – under an alarm and event management function. There are great possibilities here for sorting and searching current information by alarm type, plant section, intensity, control system and so on. It is easy to reach the current process image, graph or response texts from each alarm, and to combine views of them.

 

Distributing alarms

Alarms are distributed quickly and efficiently from the alarm system. The time at which alarms are to be distributed, alarm types, and the people or groups receiving them can all be configured. The alarms can be distributed via text message or an app, so a wide variety of devices can be used to receive the alarm. The alarm app can also be used to view measurement values, register important events in reality in the form of text, photo, film, and to send messages to colleagues.

 

Alarm analysis tool measures the status of your plant

Cactus Eye includes an advanced tool for analyzing alarms, events and indications in the system. This is a parallel tool that complements the conventional alarm and event lists.

 

Map views with information in different layers

The introductory view shows the municipality and plants geographically. Map markers show the location of the plants on the map and whether their status is normal or deviating. This view can also show the subdivision of the pipe network.

 

Graph presentation

The graph presentation in Cactus Eye quickly shows data from the history stored in the system, either as a graph or bar chart. The presentation is particularly flexible in terms of choosing variables, presentation colour, line types and so on. Time axes and value axes can be shifted on each axis for maximum flexibility.

 

Leakage detection

The actual distribution is perhaps the part where leakage occurs the most in Sweden’s water and wastewater sector. Old pipes drain resources. Heavy precipitation puts severe strain on pipe networks and water and wastewater plants. Cactus Eye is excellent in this area, with built-in functions for leakage detection and rain measurement.

 

Precipitation measurement

There are three reasons why measuring precipitation is an important part of the daily information gathering for a water and wastewater operation: 1) To be able to plan measures regarding local heavy rains, 2) To dimension surface water systems, and 3) To be able to resolve disputes when it comes to liability compensation after flooding. Cactus Eye has a function for rain measurement together with the measurement tool Logger.
