WATER TOWER FILL CONTROL
A pump station is best located near a water source and a storage tower is best located near residential developments. Sometimes there is a great distance between the two. By using a SCADADroid® at both the tower and the pump station the two can operate seamlessly by passing data through Reonix Automation’s Hosted VPN service. The SCADADroid® can have digital devices wired directly to it with no intermediate devices needed - simplifying installation and reducing hardware.
REMOTE WELL CONTROL
Reonix Automation installed an application using SCADADroid’s to control 4 remote well sites. A Micrologix 1400 was used as the central controller, and communicated with a SCADADroid® via Modbus. The SCADADroid® then communicated with SCADADroid’s installed at each remote well site, shutting down or starting the wells via relay switch, as instructed by the Micrologix 1400.
REMOTE TERMINAL UNIT
Reonix was approached by a customer who needed to remotely monitor their electrical power generation engines. The software ran on a computer which required the customer plug directly into the engine monitoring system.
Reonix Automation verified an application for the SCADADroid® as part of an Internet Protocol Camera system, based on testing performed by Reonix Automation. IP Camera system can be used for real-time surveillance of an area.
Good antenna installation is key to the best cell reception for the SCADADroid®. Antenna type, location, and height, as well as use of a booster and proximity to a cell tower, are all important factors when selecting and installing an antenna for your unit.
Reonix was approached by a customer who needed a callout system that could provide both an internet gateway and a VPN tunnel without having to pay for two phone contracts and multiple pieces of hardware. Reonix found a solution that met all of the customers criteria, further displaying the flexibility and capabilities of the SCADADroid® unit, and the numerous applications available to it.
