Model result forecasting

Bring Autodesk Water model results into Info360 Plant workspaces, facilitating access to historical, current, and forecast model scenarios. Manage multiple model runs, analyse and compare different scenarios at individual or default workspace levels, enhancing flexibility in data analysis.


Base forecast scenarios

Administrators can now set default scenarios in workspaces for global changes, offering flexibility for users to set a default model forecast scenario. Enable scenario comparisons, consistent chart conceptualisation, and enhanced predictive results for future Autodesk model integrations. (video: 29 secs)


Streamlined form creation

Design forms without administrator-level permissions or configuring virtual data entry fields. Prefill sensor configurations in form designs or add new virtual sensors as needed, simplifying the creation of various forms for field measurements and observations.


Contextual help with analytics

Get contextual help directly within the analytic builder, providing in-app assistance and a detailed function menu for crafting analytic expressions. This simplifies the deployment of calculations without special characters in output naming, enhances analysis, and aids in discovering and applying relevant analytic functions to data sets.


Report archive manager

Organise unused exports and reports with improved management. The new report archive manager provides effective version control, simplifies data retrieval, declutters old entries, helps prevent accidental duplication and hides unnecessary reports.


Historical chart expansion

Easily scroll through multiple years of data to facilitate the monitoring and operation of your water and wastewater network and treatment plant assets. This significant chart enhancement saves time and improves data visualisation across extended time periods. (video: 8 secs)


Multiple data set view

Identify anomalies and time gaps and validate your data by viewing multiple overlays of time sample intervals using the sampling engine. For a given sensor with the charting overlay, view multiple resolutions, including raw data, 15 and 30 minutes, hourly, daily, weekly and monthly. (video: 13 secs)


On/off pump toggle switch

The on/off toggle switch simplifies pump performance data viewing in scenarios with limited sensors. It filters and presents data only when the pump is on, enabling efficient comparisons and independent analysis of each pump’s performance and usage against its design curves. (video: 12 secs)


GE Proficy Historian integration

Get Object Linking and Embedding, Database (OLEDB) integration support for easier onboarding and deployment for users accessing multiple data sources. View raw data at any time and resolution, paving the way for additional OLEDB connections for users to get the most out of the data they collect.


Sensor health

Monitor sensor status and visualise a 7-day sensor health trend. Promptly identify sensors that may need recalibration and replacement.


Heatmaps for sensor visualisation

Make faster decisions in disruption scenarios by displaying a heatmap of the latest sensor values, with dynamic colour coding and symbol sizing for intuitive interpretation of geospatial sensor data.


Workspace templates

Reuse previously built workspaces, complete with all configurations and settings. Select the desired sensors to map onto a prebuilt workspace, facilitate previous work, and apply expertise faster across various water and wastewater treatment facilities. (video: 22 secs)


GIS data import via shapefiles

Improve the speed of your onboarding in Info360 Plant by importing your GIS assets with the new direct import method. Simply drag and drop your shapefile into Info360 Plant’s import function to utilise relevant geospatial files.


Workspace quick access links

Enhance shareability and ease of access with quick links to frequently used analytics, forms, and other workspace components. These internal links within workspaces include images, incident reports, and sensor data exports open in a new tab for convenient workspace navigation.


Analytics creation without sensor data

Get analytics for calculations that are not based on sensor data. Transform constant value input nodes into time series data streams, resulting in calculated time series data for both constant value and the output node. Save the output node as a virtual sensor for use in other analytics or charts.


Data resampling for specific sensors

Resample for a specific time range and selected group of specified sensors. Navigate to the Admin Sensor Configuration, select sensors, choose the time period for resampling, and initiate the resample without manually resampling every sensor.


Notifications for system connections

Get information about calculations, processes, and connection statuses in the new notification hub. View notifications about disruptions in communication between Info360 Plant and your database, as well as completion notifications for calculations and processes.
