  • Sticking with Innovation That Works
    Sticking with Innovation That Works

    With a population of about 15,000, Steinbach is the third largest city in Manitoba and one of the fastest growing areas in Canada. The current system has been operating since 1993, an eternity in the world of technology. Because the wastewater department was already familiar with operating the existing Xylem/Flygt M&C SCADA system with Aquaview software and APP controllers, they decided to inquire what new technologies the company could offer. Read the full case study to learn more.

    Sticking With Innovation That Works: Steinbach, Manitoba’s Plant Upgrade

    Steinbach is the third largest city in Manitoba and one of the fastest growing census agglomeration areas in Canada with a population of about 50,000 people. Though Steinbach is primarily an agricultural community, it is also the regional economic hub of southeastern Manitoba. Due to the age of the wastewater control system, the city decided it was time for some new technology. This profile will describe the process of that upgrade and why they chose VTScada.

  • Clay County Utility Authority Project Profile
    Clay County Utility Authority Project Profile

    Clay County, located in Northern Florida, has a population of almost 200,000. In April 2016, Clay County Utility Authority (CCUA) needed a new SCADA system to monitor seven reclaimed water sites that the Authority uses to determine water storage times, using this data to route water from site to site. VTScada was selected by CCUA and their engineer.

  • WIMS Offers A Winning Solution In Columbia, SC
    WIMS Offers A Winning Solution In Columbia, SC

    Back in 2012, the City Of Columbia made the decision to update its OPS SQL software to Hach WIMS (water information management system). The old software was not only sitting idle, but was also out of date. The reasons for updating and implementing the software were many but can be summarized with the two primary goals: To collect the data into a central database that is easily accessible and to create a dashboard from which the rotating operations teams or management could quickly understand what was happening. After more than a year of coordinating Metro management and staff, Hach WIMS support staff, and city IT staff, WIMS began to take shape.

Integrator Roundtable Discussion: Disrupt And Grow Integrator Roundtable Discussion: Disrupt And Grow

Instead of approaching end users about their plant-floor and SCADA needs, integrators can take a wider look at the enterprise to find other opportunities for improvement, such as data issues between departments. Ignition by Inductive Automation® is the perfect software for this approach because it has the ability to build or connect just about anything. And in case after case, end users that start using Ignition gradually extend it throughout the enterprise, creating a steady stream of integration projects.
