  • Trihedral Shares The Capabilities Of SCADA
    water and wastewater industry Pat Typically it starts at the plant level We have water coming out of a stream and it goes through a facility for putting in the various chemicals chlorine purification and that would be SCADA at the plant level The water is then sent out via pressure to lift stations pumping stations and at the lift station and pumping station it s sent into your own home where you use it When the water is finished it goes out as wastewater and that goes downhill into pits where it s collected pumped up and goes to the next pit all without the benefit of pressure It s all gravity fed and that s why it s called a lift station It ultimately goes into the wastewater treatment plant which processes it and then it s pumped back into the environment SCADA gets involved in all those areas And more and more a growing area of concern is stormwater Typically the stormwater was allowed to run off into the rivers and into the streams and nobody thought very much about it Now they re recognizing that there are very significant quantities of nutrients in stormwater There s a lot of heavy metal involved in stormwater perhaps oil and gas in stormwater Now they re looking more and more at taking that product and treating it as well before it s sent back into the environment Some of the nutrients for example in places like Florida are beginning to cause a tremendous algae growth in the lakes and the streams and in fact choking off the wildlife because of too many nutrients Stormwater is also an area of concern and it s certainly something we see more and more on the SCADA side Todd Schnick Talk a little bit about SCADA s applications in different industries beyond water wastewater Pat It s really scary As we said in the wastewater lift stations and pumping stations oil and gas industry people are wanting to see in real time what oil is produced what oil as it goes through the pipelines or gas going through the transmission lines Ultimately that s turned into electricity at the power plants and as we distribute electricity we want to be able to watch the little electrons running down the various copper wires or other methods of transportation and lighting your houses We see SCADA in areas for example monitoring broadcast systems It could be monitoring oil and gas platforms in the middle of the ocean or it could be used in a manufacturing establishment to watch the process as we re making crankshafts as we re making polyethylene bags as we re treating milk products or one of my personal favorites in breweries where we are managing the batches I happen to be in charge of quality assurance Todd Schnick Listen if you ever need a hand just let us know We re happy to volunteer Pat Thank you so much It s

  • Reliable M2M Communication And Networking Technology Connects Wastewater Facilities
    and disadvantages Some of the common M2M communication technologies used today include Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum unlicensed private radios Some of the most traditional and widely used M2M communication solutions for the past 20 years have been Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum FHSS radio technologies for private radio network solutions running in unlicensed spectrums These wireless technologies offer highly reliable and secure data transmission with low latencies desirable range and throughput rates This enables real time monitoring and control of automation equipment and the ability to transmit and receive data over long distances sometimes up to 60 miles Line of Sight LOS Wireless data communication equipment providers have taken leaps forward for customers who need industrial grade serial and Ethernet radios that operate in harsh challenging and congested radio frequency RF environments As with all technologies FHSS radios have some potential limitations A real limitation is that they do require an infrastructure that is LOS in nature They are also more susceptible to interference in heavily wooded areas than some other competing technologies However this deterrent can be easily overcome with proper planning network design and path studies which all should be provided by the manufacturer or systems integrator There are additional concerns about frequency saturation in areas where there are many unlicensed radios operating Others are simply concerned about these radios operating in a shared spectrum for example 902 928 MHz On the other hand FHSS spread spectrum radios also have many advantages They provide for much higher throughput than licensed systems They do not require a license which adds to administrative costs and headaches They are very flexible in many ways For instance by using repeaters the achievable network range is unlimited Wireless FHSS communication networks that have been used and proven by 100 s of utilities as a reliable solution for many years These type of radios are relatively easy to install and if done properly can offer the same reliability and security measures as wired systems and at a much lower cost Because of the strengths of FHSS wireless data radios utility decision makers are increasingly implementing a wireless communication system into their wastewater systems Fixed Frequency licensed private radios Licensed wireless radio technologies can be deployed in a variety of frequencies nearly anywhere in the world giving them flexibility for any installation The radios can be very tolerant of Mother Nature s challenges especially in the lower frequencies At 400 MHz or 200 MHz for example the wireless radios will penetrate wooded areas better than 900 MHz licensed and FHSS Furthermore using a fixed frequency radio provides the user an opportunity to own that frequency in the geography where they hold the license with the FCC in the U S or another spectrum holder This is because the user owns the frequency within that specific area and will not be faced with interference from another user Disadvantages of licensed radios include lower bandwidth challenges In some frequencies the channel spacing can be as limited as 6
