We have a solution that permit the simple and cost effective monitoring of both adopted sewers and pumping stations that is cost effective, future proof and easy to integrate with existing telemetry and SCADA. So how do we do it?
Using either our secure Ofcom licenced radio band we setup subnets around an existing pumping station or similar asset that collects the data from a cluster of adopted pumping stations, typically over an area of 30 square km or greater.
Self contained with a choice of analogue and/or digital inputs, integrated mains power supply with crucially a battery backup permitting it to report sustained power outages.
Typically we can monitor the status of an adopted pumping station within a 5m radius of an existing pumping station. The path need not be line of sight but there are limits! Under challenging circumstances we are also able to supply repeaters, boosters and higher gain antenna that can increase significantly so all is not lost. Each upgrade kit normally permits the monitoring of up to three parameters, from each pumping station.
If in doubt we offer a comprehensive field survey whereby we will warrant the viability of the link before you commit to the project.
It is very easy to monitor multiple pumping stations over the same network the only limitation is the number of spare card slots remaining at the receiver. If however you do run short we offer a part exchange upgrade programme whereby for example a 4-slot Gateway can be upgraded to a 8-slot and a 8-slot to a 16 and even 32 slot unit.
The Gateway Receiver concept is a proven simple way to extend the reach of existing telemetry outstations. The Gateway simply produces volt free contact that connect straight across into spare inputs without the need for programming or complex interface drivers. Simply there is nothing to go wrong and there are LEDs on associated with each alarm to aid testing.
We can also include local wet well and blocked sewer alarms, derived from existing float switches or BDT / FDT transducers in the vicinity of the pumping station. The signals from these transducers can incorporated within the pumping status’s data and brought back to the outstation using the same message stream.
If further signals are required a second card can be fitted to permit an additional three digital. Alternatively and analogue card can be fitted to permit the monitoring of a 4-20mA loop transducer relating for example to a wet well level.
