Smaller water and wastewater treatment districts often have difficulty funding SCADA systems to monitor their operations as required. In addition, remote and rural equipment sites are much more difficult to connect. Wireless communication can fail due to terrain, while cellular communication can be cost prohibitive.
Recognizing the needs of smaller water and wastewater treatment plant operators, systems integrator Perceptive Controls decided to develop a cloud-based SCADA system to reduce costs and provide operators with the data they need.
Read about the problems involved in building the system and the ways Perceptive Controls approached solutions in this Opto 22 application brief.
