With 20 plus years of experience, TraC-n-trol has established a thorough engineering understanding of SCADA and chosen best in class non-proprietary components to create a standardized design for all of our installations. Our engineers are constantly evaluating and testing system components for meeting our key design criteria.
Key design elements always embedded in the design are:
1. Open architecture - Non-proprietary components, software, and hardware.
2. Reliability of the system – proven components and methods,
3. Scalability – ability to expand the system without loss of investment to the customer.
4. Value - balance of equipment price and performance.
Visualize Your Data
Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems give system operators a visual real time view of their water or wastewater processes. Utilizing a powerful desk top computer, SCADA graphical display software, and remote monitoring equipment, the SCADA system provides a "System Dashboard" for remote management of their system. Radio telemetry is the typical backbone for data transmission from remote sites to a central office location.
In addition to displaying the current status of the system, the SCADA computer can alarm operators via e-mails or text messages and log information for regulatory reports.
Multiple Sites on One System
Remote Terminal Units (RTU's) are used to take inputs from field instruments that allow system operating parameters and their corresponding values (ex: tank levels, pressures, flows, pump motor status, chlorine residual, etc.) to be displayed on the graphical interface screen at the office.
Remote locations have SCADA control panels that incorporate programmable logic controllers (PLC’s) and radios to gather the digital information from the remote sites and then send them to the SCADA computer location.
