Remote operation was implemented by integrating the control panel into the City’s SCADA system. In addition, the PLC based touch screen controller allows on-screen calibration of process signals, graphic trending displays for valve PID tuning, plus manual mode selection for testing and maintenance. “This flexible package of controls was just what they needed for their system”, said Dave Burrell of Southwest Valve, exclusive representative for Singer Valve in California.
