Digital Water Curtain
The DWC works as a computer controlled “water plotter” that displays graphics, patterns and texts onto cascading water, by switching fast acting valves on and off. This produces falling segments of water that serve as pixels, creating an extraordinary display that is constantly scrolling downwards.
We manufacture the units custom made for each customer in size, shape and water pixel resolution. Each unit essentially consists of:
Smart Design and compact system, assembled in a customized aluminum truss structure, integrating: Pipes, fast speed high quality valves, brass nozzles, RGB LED lights, control electronics and motion detection sensors (optional).
Controlidor Master Controller electric board, integrating: Panel PC with Controlidor Software, 15” touchscreen, power switches, vfd pump control, filtration system control, wifi router.
SHAPES, SIZES AND RESOLUTION
The DWC can be manufactured in all kinds of shapes: multi layer, waves, random, circular, rectangular, architectural spaces, 3D, etc. The DWC´s size can be customized to fit any architecture project, adapting its structure and shape to blend in with its surroundings.
3D DIGITAL WATER CURTAIN
The three-dimensional water curtain is able to generate water sculptures, in real time, surprising and captivating the spectators in an eye-catching and innovative way. It is a new design element to be placed at the entrance of those spaces where an appealing attraction point is needed to draw attention of the visitors, such as: shopping centers, casinos, hotels, offices buildings, museums, etc.
We love to surpass ourselves: we design every single project from scratch in order to adapt it to the specific needs of our clients.
Controlidor Software is the most powerful and reliable software for Digital Water systems. It has a customized design and user friendly interface to control all the installation equipment in a fully automatic way.
DIFFERENT TYPES OF STANDARD DWC
We have developed 5 DWC standard models, varying in resolution display and indoor/ outdoor applications.
We offer a complete engineering solution for every project, also providing the following equipment, according to each customer’s requirements.
VIDEO PROJECTION AND LASER
The nozzles are designed to create a high quality video projection screen on the water curtain. With this feature, video or lasers can be used to project on to the DWC surface that may be combined with the falling graphics and patterns performed by the water curtain.
An optional water treatment system for the DWC is available, designed to operate in an unsupervised environment at the highest standards of quality and reliability. In the event of water contamination, the DWC will cease to operate immediately, until the quality of the water in the system returns to acceptable levels.
WIND CONTROL OUTDOOR SYSTEMS
The water curtain, if placed outdoors, can be programmed to include a sensitive wind speed control system that will gauge the air velocity in order to minimize splashing and water losses due to the action of the wind.
Electronic sensors can be integrated into the overhead pipe. These sensors detect the approach of people, so that the water curtain can open to let them pass through or interact with the DWC.
PUMPS AND STRAINERS
For every project, a pump will be designed according to the DWC’s height and flow. Specific strainers designed by us are a smart choice to prevent dirt from entering into the system.
Customized applications can be developed for every customer so that users can interact with the water curtain.
PORTABLE STRUCTURES AND MODULAR BASINS
We design portable structures, consisting of elevation and support columns and a modular basin, adapted to the size of the curtain.
Customized sizes for indoor and outdoor applications.
