The following list provides the new and exciting features in the latest release of InfoWater Pro in version 3.5.

InfoWater Pro 3.5 - Update 3 (April 16, 2021)

  • The new Control Center Overview feature in InfoWater Pro 3.5, Update 3 allows you to view a summary of rule-based controls, simple controls, initial status, remote valve controls, and variable speed pump controls in one dialog box. See the InfoWater Pro online help for more details on Model Control Center Overview feature. 
  • You can select HL/1000 statistics as output within the Map Display and joined to the Pipe Table when executing the Join All Layer tables command.
  • The critical node search algorithm in the Fireflow module was improved to address the circumstance of multiple hydrant node specific constraints.
  • InfoWater Pro WQ Calibrator ran with the false message of “fatal error” under some circumstances. This compatibility issue was fixed, so it will not result in a failed run.
  • Using the Digitize Network tool would sometimes let you start a pipe at a location not a start node, or a connecting link would not appear. This proved to be confusing, and the functionality of this feature has been addressed to click once to digitize new node in space, double click to append to existing node or digitize next junction. Use the hot key Esc or right-click Stop to end the digitize network session.

InfoWater Pro 3.5 - Update 2 (March 26, 2021)

  • InfoWater Pro 3.5, Update 2 provides support for ArcGIS Pro 2.6 through ArcGIS Pro 2.7.2. Please upgrade to at least ArcGIS Pro 2.6 before installation.

  • You can now use the value for tank %Full because it is available as a sensor type in this update.

  • You can resize your Change ID window to fit longer element IDs in this update.

  • You will no longer experience inconsistencies when creating the PZM hydraulic Profile and the PZM Summary table. This issue has been fixed so that the results per pressure zone match in the two locations.

  • You will no longer experience crashes caused by external GIS layer definition as valve data source in CAM because this issue has been fixed in this update.

  • When you check on the ‘Show Pipe, Pump and Valve Initial Status’ option through Preferences → Display Settings, the initially closed symbol does not apply to those inactive pipes/pumps/valves with initially closed status.

  • You were not able to use the Close/Open buttons within the Flush Sequence Manager to record selected valve in the sequence, where the UDF valve layer was not highlighted in the ArcGIS Pro Table of Contents. This limitation has been addressed in this update.

  • The issue with the option ‘Apply to Selection Only’ within the Specify Emitter Coefficient for Hydrant tool being grayed out has been addressed. Now when you select hydrants within ArcGIS Pro, the option is bolded, and emitter coefficient is applied to hydrants within the selection.

  • In some instances when you created a new sequence while another sequence is highlighted within InfoWater Pro UDF Flush Sequence Manager, you may have lost input data on the selected sequence. This issue has been fixed in this update.

  • InfoWater UDF sequence run might show special characters in the results. The issue has been fixed in this update to InfoWater Pro.

  • Under some circumstances, your Polygon Intersection allocation method of Demand Allocator was not able to allocate demand. This issue has been fixed in this update to InfoWater Pro.

  • When you ran the Protector’s Notify feature, pipes outside of the affected facilities were being selected, as a result customer points outside of the isolated area were being included for notification. This issue has been addressed in this update.

InfoWater Pro 3.5 - Update 1 (February 23rd, 2021)

  • With the integration with Windows Minidump in InfoWater Pro 3.5, Update 1, you can produce the memory dump file upon crash. You may request the minidump file for crash dump analysis in this software release. 

  • You may have experienced a crash when you used InfoWater Pro UDF Set Hydrant/Valve Symbol command with either hydrant or valve layer when you used symbology other than single symbol. The issue is now fixed.

  • InfoWater Pro 3.5 had a compatibility issue with a third-party library, which had an impact on a few functions such as Network Review tools and Demand Allocation-Closest Pipe. You can restore the impacted functions in InfoWater Pro 3.5, Update 1.

  • You may have experienced an error with the Model Explorer in the previous release. It may have not displayed design fireflow after you ran a fireflow analysis. The issue is now fixed.

InfoWater Pro 3.5 - (February 10th, 2021)

  • With the newest InfoWater Pro Live Data Adapter (LDA) feature in this software release, you are now able to connect to Info360.com telemetry database and pull in the historical and aggregated SCADA data for the purpose of updating your InfoWater Pro model’s boundary conditions to compare the results between measured and modeled parameters.
  • In this release of InfoWater Pro, you can securely upload a calibrated hydraulic model with a list of user-selected asset layers to Info360.com. The model file is stored in the cloud and the asset layers are ingested into a highly available and highly scalable asset database. With the model upload tool, you can select the desired asset layers, and you can also configure some attributes for a given asset layer.
  • For InfoWater Pro 3.5, you can enable the SCADA Run of Run Manager to fetch SCADA data such as tank level, pump status, and control valve setting through LDA; you can run a simulation with the boundary conditions updated with the pulled SCADA data; and you can compare the modeled and measured hydraulic parameters.
  • InfoWater Pro 3.5 is compatible with ArcGIS Pro 2.6, 2.7, and 2.7.1.
  • The Demand Analyst of InfoWater Pro 3.5 allows you to select either a table or a table view for analysis.
  • InfoWater Pro provides you with the option to interpolate elevation when inserting a new node on a pipe. Elevation is interpolated for new node based on the elevation values of upstream and downstream junctions. You can also disable the option, when necessary.
  • InfoWater Pro Criticality Assessment Manager (CAM) is improved with a more robust and intelligent resource use management for the model-element-based mode, which is highly necessary for the large models. Along with CAM run results, a log file is also produced for troubleshooting purposes.
  • When you use InfoWater Pro tools to edit or digitize model elements (e.g., Move Node), you will find that ArcGIS Pro ‘Snapping’ function is automatically enabled.
  • When you ran a UDF sequence with junctions as UDF valves in the previous release, you may have experienced a crash as those junctions have some demand. This issue is now fixed.
  • The Clear Domain button, located in the InfoWater Pro ribbon, is enabled when some elements are added to domain through the DB Editor.
