The SCADADroid® R2+ also opens the possibility for lift station monitoring for circular or rectangular wet wells.
As always, the 8 digital inputs can easily be used to monitor pump run/fault status, level switches, and other discrete variables. On two of these, one second time accumulators can log pump runtime data, and distribute reports to selected email recipients. Multiple High and Low levels might be routed to the inputs, for added reporting complexity
Digital flowmeters capable of sending discrete interval data to the digital inputs would then measure throughput, and pseudo flow rate. SCADADroid® reports on flow rate, as it logs user defined setpoints. And, of course, the unit’s output can control pump operation.
SCADADroid®’s sophisticated Alarm Callout functionality allows your team to coordinate appropriately based on the administrator’s callout order, callout grouping, and repeat method. With purchase of the cell modem option, voice-dial and SMS alarms send data on events to your phone and text message apps via GSM
For even more control and data acquisition, purchase a Modbus licence so that your SCADADroid® can act as the Modbus Client in a SCADA application, through TPC/IP or RTU
With a complimentary Events Licence, you can systematize your wellsite’s I/O procedure
At additional cost, MQTT can be leveraged to minimize data transmission between sites by cellular means, saving your team money on mobile communications expenses
The more remote the wellsite, the better the use of VPN remote access to the SCADADroid® and connected Modbus or MQTT devices
This application is just one possibility in balancing multiple inputs for more versatile remote monitoring, operation, and reporting.
Circular or Rectangular Wet Well Monitoring:
- Continuous Interval monitoring through an analog input
- Discrete Interval monitoring available through digital inputs
- Pump Runtime and Starts can be monitored by making time accumulators and counters two of the digital inputs
- MQTT publish-subscribe reporting
- Real values as opposed to percentages displayed upon publishing
- Free Application Interface programs for data-efficient mobile SCADA
