The development and testing of a WITS certified product has often proved difficult and costly due to the non-availability of suitable master station test software. This has placed a barrier on innovation and has especially impacted smaller vendors in the industry who have smaller development budgets.
Servelec Systems has developed a cost-effective solution for the testing and self-certification of RTU products to the WITS standard. The Servelec WITS Master Station Test Software enables vendors to:
- develop and test against a standard WITS framework before submitting to the certification process
- address changes in the standards as they evolve
- more accurately control product development costs
The test system is based on the water industry proven Servelec SCOPE-X platform, runs on a standard Windows PC (in a VM) and includes the full WITS test instruction set. The solution package also includes an initial 10 hours of professional installation, training & support, which can be extended if needed. The system license is realistically priced and includes all version updates and WITS standard upgrades for the first year.
Neil Butler, Managing Director of Servelec Systems commented:
The Servelec WITS Master Station Test package represents a solid investment for any business with a need to self-certify their products to the WITS standard. We believe that enabling vendors to test their equipment against the WITS standard in their development environments will drive real innovation in RTUs. As a founder member of WITS we have a responsibility to encourage the development of new technologies in the water industry - I think our WITS test platform does exactly that.
