Tips On Integrating Packaged Equipment Into Plant SCADA Systems By Todd Nydam, JWC Environmental LLC; and Graham Nasby, Eramosa Engineering
Integrating controls from an equipment supplier successfully within a plant SCADA or DCS system requires communication on multiple levels. These levels include process of design, mechanical fit up and installation, as well as the coordination to get the equipment to work in concert with the plant’s other control systems.
Adopting A Complete SCADA System Over A Sophisticated RTU-Based Solution By Trihedral Engineering Limited
For more than a decade, The Bahamas Water and Sewerage Company (BWSC) faced significant service challenges on the Island of New Providence. These included a lack of centralized monitoring and control for the island’s primary water treatment and distribution system, as well as limited reporting, alarming, and remote access.
Remote Monitoring Solves Overflow And Lost Data Problems By Telog Instruments, Inc.
In London, Ontario, an aging combined sewer system created flooding issues, and the city’s outdated monitoring system provided unreliable and inconsistent data to indicate why. By installing a remote monitoring system, engineers were able to determine the exact source of the overflow problems. In this case study, find out how the implementation of wireless flow meters can lower operations and maintenance costs.
Something Old, Something New: SCADA System Upgrade Maintains Functionality By Schneider Electric
Portland Water Bureau looked to upgrade its aging supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system, while maintaining the legacy-system functionality on which the utility relied. To do so, it was necessary for the new SCADA system to integrate with the established network of field measurement units.
