Tag: SCADA system

SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) is a system that operates with coded signals over communication channels so as to provide control of remote equipment (using typically one communication channel per remote station). The control system may be combined with a data acquisition system by adding the use of coded signals over communication channels to acquire information about the status of the remote equipment for display or for recording functions. It is a type of industrial control system (ICS). Industrial control systems are computer-based systems that monitor and control industrial processes that exist in the physical world.

Continuous water quality monitoring of ammonia is becoming increasingly important for plant operations and process control. Unfortunately, most online ammonia monitors are generally very expensive, complex, and maintenance-intensive instruments. ATl’s response to this issue was to develop a system that utilizes a completely new approach to online monitoring

Say “No” to Non-Revenue Water

Say “No” to Non-Revenue Water

If water utilities were charities, they would be expected to give their water away for free, and if water wasn’t so difficult and expensive to process in the first place to make sure it is safe for human consumption, then it wouldn’t matter if millions of gallons “disappeared” from the

Guest Commentary: The Benefits of Variable Frequency Drives

With the cost of energy and water and wastewater services continuing to rise, operators are looking for ways to reduce the costsof these basic, yet crucial-to-life, utilities. Proposed energy efficiency standards from the US Department of Energy (DOE) and other federal measures could help.

Integrating AMI and MDM: A Worthwhile Venture?

Integrating AMI and MDM: A Worthwhile Venture?

As more and more water utilities migrate from automatic meter reading (AMR) technology to Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) technology—or go directly to AMI—the opportunity to also introduce a meter data management (MDM) system presents itself.

SCADA Update

As the demand for efficiency at water utilities continues to grow, the importance of high-performance SCADA technology has never been greater. But that performance is no longer limited to the plant. Traditionally, SCADA stood for Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition, and, of course, for water and wastewater plants, we know
