SCHELL SWS Water Management System.
Today, hygiene is digital.

As installations grow more complex, so too do the requirements for legally compliant operation of drinking water systems. With the SCHELL SWS Water Management System, operation of the drinking water installation to the highest hygiene standards is possible over the long term, and at all important sampling points in the public, semi-public and commercial usage segments. Fittings and maintenance work can be planned efficiently and economically. The system can be integrated into any industry-standard building automation and control system (BACS). Flexible wired and wireless networking options make it ideal for new developments and existing properties alike.

for drinking water installation planning, construction and operation.

Simple to install – easy to operate: SCHELL’s SWS Water Management System helps to maintain drinking water quality with standards-compliant water changes achieved by automated stagnation flushing. Water safety is ensured by analysis, end-to-end documentation, reporting – and more. Options to generate room plans, create groups and use wired or wireless networking offer greater planning flexibility both for new buildings and renovations. Full compatibility with industry-standard BAC systems is also assured.

Economical:
Efficient operation of real estate – long-term value retention

A drinking water installation offering long-term hygiene that protects user health is an absolute must. It is no accident that regulations here are especially strict, and non-compliance here can have serious consequences. The SCHELL SWS Water Management System gives property owners and facility managers peace of mind here, while also offering a set of concrete economic advantages throughout the building’s entire life cycle. An investment in SCHELL SWS pays for itself over a time frame of just a few years.

System components

SWS Water Management System server

At the heart of the system is the SWS server and its intelligent software. This software handles the centralised adjustment of fitting parameters, stagnation flushes, performance of thermal disinfection, and all analysis and documentation work. Data from up to 64 subscribers is transferred wirelessly or via a wired bus network. The SWS server can be controlled from a master facility management system via SWS gateways. Integration with the existing automation system is completed by a system integrator. In larger buildings, multiple SWS water management systems can be operated in parallel.

SWS FM WIRELESS MANAGER

The wireless manager is used to bridge longer wireless distances: it functions as a repeater and is powered by a mains adapter.

SWS 30 V BUS MAINS ADAPTER

The bus mains adapter provides power to all of the wired bus extenders and their networked fittings as well as the SWS server.

SWS GATEWAYS

The gateways enable the integration of the SWS water management system with the building automation system. A gateway translates the SWS protocol into the target standard bus protocol. Various models are available, depending on the protocols and data points that you require. One SWS gateway is required for each integrated SWS server.

SWS TEMPERATURE SENSOR

The SWS temperature sensors record the water temperature: this data is used to control hygiene flushes and document system temperatures. To transfer the temperature data, the temperature sensors are integrated with the SWS network either by using the fitting’s bus extender or by using a dedicated bus extender.

SWS LEAKAGE PROTECTION VALVES

The SWS leakage protection valve prevents water damage outside the building’s hours of use while also protecting drinking water hygiene. The valve shuts off the water supply centrally or in certain sections at times when the building is unused – such as at night, at the weekend or during holidays. The valve opens and closes automatically for stagnation flushes. Usage times and closing times can be easily programmed using a calendar function.

SMART.SWS

With SMART.SWS, the innovative add-on to the SWS water management system, users get online access to analysis data plus key status messages and reports for any building – and whatever their current location.

SWS BE-K wired bus extender

The SWS wired bus extender transfers data between the fitting and the SWS server along a cable up to 350 m in length (total length of all cables must not exceed 1,000 m). The same cable provides a supply voltage to the BE-K and fitting.


SWS BE-F wireless bus extender

The wireless bus extender enables wireless data transfer between the SWS server and the electronic fitting. The supply voltage can be provided either via the battery compartment of the fitting or via a power adapter. When supplied with mains voltage, the wireless bus extender also functions as repeater (mesh wireless network).
