Drinking Water Supply

 

The outstations control and monitor pumping stations, boreholes and reservoirs.

Drinking Water Supply

The system consists of a number of different projects brought together under one Front End unit and SCADA host. The project was carried out by Remotronic Controls from Johannesburg, South Africa.

A number of D01 master RTUs are each controlling a network of D70 outstations. The outstations control and monitor pumping stations, boreholes and reservoirs in such a way that the levels in the reservoirs are maintained and the production points are not being depleted. The control algorithms of the D01 and D70 stations are therefore interlinked through VHF radio communication.

The different D01 master outstations communicate with a central system consisting of a D01 FEP and Adroit SCADA software. Communication with the FEP is based on radio links and land lines.
