We have a municipal customer that wanted to go wireless with cellular interface for all of their remote pump stations.
PJ Kortens put together a system with Cradlepoint cellular adapters and Allen Bradley Compact Logix processors. With this system they get full local and remote system monitoring and control.
Information is linked back through a firewall to the city servers. Their system uses Wonderware Intouch and Historian. Operators can easily run reports and look at historical information about their pump systems to help them with maintenance planning and troubleshooting.
We also integrated 2 IPads with cellular links. Operators can now carry control stations with them wherever they are when problems arise.
As an end result, the customer has a reliable control system with cellular links giving them remote access from anywhere.
