Solutions for the Water and Wastewater Industry

For companies working in the water treatment industry, monitoring equipment and conditions at a site can be a challenge. Assets can be located in remote, hard to access areas and distributed over long distances, making site visits to gather information and manage equipment impractical.

Wireless solutions from Banner Engineering enable remote monitoring and management of equipment and conditions at tank and retention ponds. These cost-effective solutions combine secure, robust wireless communication with Banner’s extensive portfolio of sensors and LED indicators. Wireless sensor networks eliminate the need for long cable runs and allow staff to monitor flow switch status, pressure, temperature, pond and chemical levels without requiring site visits to remote and distant assets.   

Applications

Controlling Pumps Using a Solar-Powered Repeater System
Controlling Pumps Using a Solar-Powered Repeater System

A Performance Mapping (PM2) Gateway and two PM2 Nodes (900 MHz, 1 W models), using the 1R mapping option, transmit the signal from the reservoir to the pump station. One of the Nodes was installed at the reservoir with the float switch as its input. A solar panel was used to power the float switch and the Node. The Gateway, also powered by a solar panel, was installed part way down the hill to act as a repeater and ensure the signal was strong between the reservoir and the pump station. The second Node was wired into the pump station’s PLC. When the signal from the float switch indicated the reservoir’s levels were low, the pump turned on.

Retrofitting a Lake Level Monitoring System
Retrofitting a Lake Level Monitoring System

The existing lake level measurement system at Moncks Corner, South Carolina was aging and needed to be upgraded to newer technology. The new components, however, needed to use wireless technology for transmitting data to avoid having to run wire from the top of the dam to the dam office, located about a quarter of a mile away.

Collecting Snap Samples
Collecting Snap Samples

To collect snap samples quicker and avoid exposure to wastewater, use wireless technology to automatically collect snap samples and deliver the contents to the collection jug. A small pump installed at the collection site can be activated automatically, and at programmed time intervals, to extract the snap sample. A wireless signal is used to trigger the collection and to confirm a successful collection.
