Introducing ATi’s pioneering breakthrough in water quality control, the SiteBox….a brand-new approach to water quality monitoring systems!
SiteBox is a fully independent portable monitoring, control and policing system that can be used in many applications from drinking water treatment (raw, treated and final water) to process water in food industry, in a carry-on luggage sized box. Its modular nature enables users to order a bespoke monitoring system that fits individual site requirements.
Delivery to start up in minutes
SiteBox is quick to install, with delivery to start up in minutes and receiving live data within an hour. The system also has a tiny footprint, low water usage and can also be configured for dual validation, triple validation and multi-stream, with up to eight sensors and over 20 parameters to choose from.
Offering a sustainable solution to water quality monitoring, SiteBox will ultimately help drive down complaints, increase SIM scores and result in safeguarding water quality for customer use.

- Combined chlorine
- ….and many more
M-Node Smart Sensors
At the heart of the SiteBox system are ATi’s new smart digital sensors, the industry-leading M-Nodes, a complete full-featured sensor and transmitter housed in a miniaturized body.
The SiteBox M-Nodes are ultra-low powered and run autonomously for years at a time on 12-24 VDC, mains or a battery. All M-Nodes plug directly into SiteBox system and are powered directly from the communications bus.
- Fast, low cost, fully portable water quality policing system
- Policing system that offers and independent final check
- Modular system designed to suit individual site needs
- Can be used as an emergency start up for drought bore holes
- Ability to measure anywhere, can foresee potential issues and advises early, which avoids complaints and allows mitigating action
- Zero and span data stored internally so calibration can be done anywhere
- Internal clock records total run time on the sensor
- Calibration timer can alert users when calibration is due
- Two alarm set points are available
- Sensor diagnostics report problems in clear message form
- 16-character user defined ‘Tag’ name
SiteBox Bespoke Options
The modular approach of SiteBox allows users to order a bespoke system specifically designed for their needs. The system has the option of three difference power sources, five communication channels, up to 8 sensors from over 20 parameters to choose from, up to three streams, plus a flow switch option.
SiteBox M-Node sensors are available for over 20 water quality parameters. Users simply select the parameters required for a specific location and ATi assemble them into a bespoke, integrated, modular system. All Nodes communicate on a common RS-485 sensor bus using Modbus protocol. Each M-Node has an IP-67 M8 water-tight connector for external communication. Power for the M-Node system is also supplied via the RS-485 bus. M-Nodes may even be used independently by system integrators who wish to communicate directly with the nodes using their own PLC system.
Power consumption requirements of traditional water quality monitors prevent their use in locations where AC power is not available. The low power design of the SiteBox system allows these monitors to operate on 12-24 VDC power, as well as battery power, without sacrificing reliability. To further improve power consumption, the system allows users to operate in either continuous or cycle modes. In full continuous mode, power is constantly applied to M-Nodes and measurements are continuously taken. When operating in cycle mode, the measurement nodes are placed in “sleep mode” for much of the time. Every 15 minutes, the Nodes are switched to “full power” for about 15 seconds in order to take a reading and store data. Operation in cycle mode extends battery life considerably.
