Data-Command offers cloud-based pump station and storage tank monitoring solution to deliver critical station and alarm information in real-time. Storage tank monitoring can also be referred to as elevated tank or standpipe monitoring.
Our products pull information from either our installed, or your pre-existing hardware and sends it to one of our data centers. Users are then notified in the event of a problem. Additionally, users are able to monitor their pump stations and control them through our secure Data-Command Info-Portal™ via any internet connected device, such as a PC, tablet, or smartphone.
At any time, users can easily view a set of informative displays, alerts, reports, and trends. These displays are customized to show vital storage tank monitoring points, in a way that is simple to navigate.
Mobile Access Allows fewer people to do more. Reduced management requirements enable small teams to handle expanding projects, while still allowing key storage tank monitoring metrics:
- Storage Tank Levels
- High and Low Tank Level Alerts
- Intrusion and Power Fail
Save money. Smaller teams, reduced travel time and costs, save municipalities considerable budget space on new projects and upgrades.
- Eliminate avoidable EPA violations due to low suction pressure, low tank levels or low chemical levels
- Helps notify maintenance crews broken mains more quickly
- Avoid Storage Tank overflow issues
- Get rid of expensive leased line
- Eliminate unnecessary trips
- Greatly reduced administration time
About Storage Tanks and Pump Stations monitoring
Storage tank monitoring is a major part of maintaining the water distribution system. In a municipality, there is a network of water pipes that exist that convey treated water from a water treatment plant to the residence of the community. In most cases the water is stored in some form of a storage tank, either an elevated tank or standpipe to be used within the day and to make sure the community has fire protection. When these storage tanks are located farther from the plant and the water travels up and down hills, it loses pressure. If the pressure falls below certain critical levels, it creates both a health risk as well as a risk of running out of water which effects the community. One way to maintain the required pressure is to use a “booster” station. A booster station is composed of a set of water pumps that increase the pressure in the line and can be used to fill a downstream storage tank. Because of hydraulics, the storage tank is what is actually maintaining the pressure and the booster station is just used to fill the tank.
Our Data-Command Info-Portal™ dashboards enable our users to view and manage their equipment and processes. Dashboards can be customized to provide high quality visualization of how equipment is performing. This also allows operations and maintenance personnel to monitor operations 24/7.
Transmitting from these sites to our servers using cellular or Ethernet technology enables users to easily check locations using a PC or mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet.
Operations and maintenance personnel can easily view system data at any time by logging into the Data-Command Info-Portal™. Customized displays, alerts, reports, and trends present information in a clear and concise format.
In the days past, a common monitoring system in the water treatment industry was a flashing red light at the station which was possibly accompanied by an alarm dialer and a dial-out phone line. These are also known as an auto dialer, which as the term implies, will automatically dial a phone and generates a voice message that an alarm was triggered.
For those stations without an alarm dialer, the most problematic part of this system is that it relies on someone noticing the station light before serious problems such as sewer backups occur. For those with alarm dialers, the lack of information surrounding an alarm trigger can cause unnecessary trips to stations which are usually in remote locations.
The depth of our hardware and software products is what differentiates us from our competitors. By enabling our clients to connect just about any piece of equipment, to our cloud-based servers, we are able to give them increased access to a wider range of information. This ultimately gives our users remote access and control of their system. We can utilize cost effective connections such as cellular, satellite, DSL, and cable to reach practically any equipment, anywhere you may have it.
