WATER APRIL 2013 166 Water Business NEW GIGABIT WAN/LAN INDUSTRIAL ROUTER Weidmuller, has created a new gigabit WAN/LAN industrial Ethernet router that delivers comprehensive security features. The WAN/LAN industrial Ethernet router translates addresses between different networks using protocols such as port forwarding, 1:1 NAT or masquerading to protect all the Ethernet devices of the hidden network and to ensure safe integration into the network. The router also enables access to infrastructure from around the world, supporting up to 10 VPN connections using OpenVPN as well as IPSec technologies to deliver high-level security with minimum effort. It boasts an inbuilt SPI rewall to prevent unwanted remote network access. Better still, the fully functional rewall can be con gured to meet individual rules for both Layer 2 (Ethernet) and Layer 3 (IP) transport to deliver top-level security. Highly intelligent, the rewall also has an auto-learning feature that adapts automatically to the network traf c it sees. This feature provides inexperienced network people with highly effective protection. Generated rules can be edited or deleted. Performance driven, the industrial security router is highly reliable and robust. It supports Modbus TCP commands and also features two digital inputs and outputs for functions and alarms. The gigabit WAN/LAN ports enable high- speed throughput of data in corporate networks. For peace of mind, the router uses the memory of a SIM card for external backup and for restoring the system's con guration. Operable in temperatures from --20ºC to +70ºC the router conveniently runs on minimal power from 7V to 36Vdc and can be battery- or solar-operated at xed installations or on vehicles. Housed in a rugged DIN rail mount case to withstand demanding environments, the router is suitable for use in mining, road and transport, water industries, and for remote access for automation companies during commissioning and warranty. Easy to set up and truly value-packed the security router is available with a three- year warranty.

Dean Massie, General Manager WA, said that the water recycling plant was a key part of the environmental sustainability of this world-famous resort. "Monkey Mia Dolphin Resort is the only accommodation in Monkey Mia and can accommodate up to 1,200 visitors. People from around the world come to see the famous wild dolphins, dugongs and other marine life set among spectacular landscapes, one of the true wonders of Australia. Stephen McConnell, Water Infrastructure Group Project Manager, said the MBR process was the ideal technology for this location. "Water Infrastructure Group has a lot of experience with MBR treatment plants. We not only design and build treatment plants, we also operate and maintain them. Our operational experience has really led us to focus on reliability for the whole life of the plants we deliver. "Our MBR plants are very robust and operate reliably to achieve regulatory and performance objectives. We focus on automation and remote monitoring and control through our Virtual Control Room to reduce the whole-of-life costs and ensure that our plants are easy to maintain and operate, particularly in remote locations like Monkey Mia. "An advantage of MBR technology for the Monkey Mia site is exibility. We've designed the plant so that it can be upgraded to 300kL/d to cater for future needs. And of course a major advantage is that MBR technology is energy ef cient and has a very small footprint. Both of these are signi cant pluses for reducing environmental impact," Stephen said. CONCRETE REMEDIATION Concrete is one of the most widely used construction materials, particularly in the water and wastewater industry. Reinforcing concrete with steel creates a composite material with high compressive and tensile strength. However, steel is vulnerable to corrosion attack from the surrounding environment, which can reduce the overall strength and integrity of the structure. Visit us at OZWATER 2013.
