Extending SCADA's Reach To Remote Resources


Many water and wastewater treatment plant operators have a desire to ‘see’ and manage key systems beyond the reach of their plant walls and in-house SCADA systems, such as wastewater lift pumps or water distribution pumps. In this Water Talk session, Dave Stout and Ryan Hancock of In Control Technical Solutions discuss an answer that’s as simple as connecting a power cord and two wires. It employs a self-contained cellular modem that any utility can self-install — at a fraction of the cost for traditional remote cellular solutions — and use to monitor remote resources as part of their main SCADA system.
