Algae Lab Systems contacted B-Scada when a customer of theirs was looking for a way to aggregate data from several hundred AlgaeConnect™ systems, each with several photobioreactors/ponds, in a single system. The AlgaeConnect™ system allows for monitoring and controlling of the equipment in clusters of reactors, as well as logging and graphing data, along with some other functions, but still lacked the ability to integrate the data from multiple AlgaeConnect™ deployments through a single interface with the custom graphics they desired. Therefore, the customer wanted a centralized interface through which to access their data, and they wanted it to be composed of graphics they chose.
Algae Lab Systems provides Monitoring and Control systems for two industries: the commercial algae growing industry and the aquaculture industry. Their systems enable customers to optimize their productivity, and save them time by automating their quality control processes.

They provide a turnkey Photobioreactor Monitoring and Control system designed to help optimize algae yield. Their AlgaeConnect™ platform integrates the data from sensors: pH, temperature, DO, density, flow rate, water level, and many others into a cohesive software/hardware platform.

The system monitors, stores, and displays all status parameters of the photobioreactors, and also automates their behavior with controlled CO2 or nutrient dosing, and activation of other devices like harvesting pumps and valves.
B-Scada's product suite comprising an IoT platform, wireless sensors and SCADA software were employed in various means to come up with solutions to address the aforementioned challenge.
Mature (technology has been on the market for > 5 years)
Using B-Scada’s Status software, Algae Lab Systems was able to develop a solution that employed custom graphics and allowed their customer to aggregate data from multiple AlgaeConnect™ deployments. B-Scada was involved to help provide some custom functionality and support. In the end, all of the customer’s needs and expectations were met and Algae Lab systems is now poised to cater to larger contracts in the future with their added capabilities.
Because they started with the Status platform, Algae Lab Systems developed the system they needed in a fraction of the time it would take to develop their own.
