Improving Automation At Remote Sites

Because water treatment usually involves a large geographic area, automation systems for water/wastewater applications often require remote sites.

In industrial water treatment, water is typically treated immediately adjacent to its points of use, and these locations may be across large industrial complexes. In municipal applications, water often is pumped long distances across extensive areas measured in square miles.

To deliver optimum results, remote automation locations must be either tightly coordinated or at a minimum monitored – which has presented some challenges in the past with regard to real-time data and event evaluation. However, advances in automation technology have provided alternatives to traditional approaches to managing these remote sites – and helped users speed implementation, reduce costs, improve data integrity and the resulting treatment processes, and significantly ease accessibility.
