The ability to wirelessly manage pumps remotely over a long distance is now available using Teleterm M3 Radio RTUs The ability to wirelessly manage pumps remotely over a long distance is now available using Teleterm M3 Radio RTUs. This full functionality IEC61131 PLC enables both control and wireless communications to exist in a single package with flexible I/O and sub net communication interfaces for VSDs and other Serial devices including Power Meters

The system comprises as many Teleterm M3 Radio RTUs as required each housed in a weatherproof housing with a built-in PSU with stand by batteries. A Unit installed at the (local) remote control side with all the I/O dedicated to control inputs and pump feedback statuses. A field side at the pump (remote) side with all the I/O dedicated to control outputs and pump feedback inputs.

Control side features:

Remote or Local control option on HMI for a fully visualized system Auto or manual functionality Ethernet to Station Control room Supervisory big screen options Scada/DCS Connectivity via ethernet Big Screen option for control room visualization of Water Plant System Field side features:

Pump Control Status Run, Trip Run Hours Bearing Temp Sump Suction Pressure Dam Levels Power Consumption Flow Rate Vibration The built-in radio allows up to 20 km line of sight between the two sets of controls allowing flexibility. The system supports peer to peer communications allowing multiple station to be integrated into one control system. This allows easy plug and play with only the wiring of the power supply and the control circuits required. Optional HMIs can be provided to do the control of the pump and to indicate statuses. The on-board Ethernet port also allows connection to an existing Scada or DCS system thus saving on additional hardware. Big screen options are also available to visualize the entire water plant in real time for a control room ensuring operators are not blind to outside plant statuses.

A comms link indication is provided to ensure the system is up and running.

Alarm logging can be included with the Teleterm M3 so that statuses can be recorded for historical purposes.

Even the speed of the pump can be controlled as the unit includes both a 4-20mA input and a 4-20mA output!

The low power consumption of the system makes it suitable for use in a solar powered option if required and a battery can be included in the event of a mains power failure. Water quality as part of Environmental responsibility are a key element to triple bottom line reporting with water licensee operators needing to provide data for licensing authorities and compliance data for reporting. Omniflex has tackled the challenges for this type of remote monitoring application head on and has dealt with a number of key issues.

Benefits

Flexible engineering Operation Distance up to 20 km wirelessly Low Power Operation with standby battery to report power outages. Alarm Logging option on the Teleterm M3 Many visualization Options SCADA and DCS integration or stand alone Easy installation and maintenance These benefits make it ideally suited for any remote monitoring and control operation.
