A Wireless Option for Remote Monitoring

Posted on Sun, Mar 6, 2011 @ 10:42 AM, a wireless, web-based remote monitoring system, offers many options for pump station monitoring at water and wastewater treatment plants. The concept is simple—wireless remote terminal units (RTUs) transmit data using the cellular network, and operators can access data through a secure, web-based interface at Since it does not require a landline, the system is versatile for all kinds of industries, including water and wastewater treatment.

The system is easy to install. The RTUs require no wire connections, and since the operator interface is available on the web, no extra software is required. Once the system is set up, operators can customize it to fit their needs via the easy-to-use website. Users can generate reports on a variety of data, including pump runtime, gallons per minute or flow, and set ranges specific to the pump application.

Alarm notification also is easy to manage on the web. Users can set the alarm parameters, notification hierarchy and preferences. The system can be set up to reach plant personnel via cell phone, landline, e-mail, pager or text message. For 24/7 status updates, personnel also can call an 800 number or log in to the website.

RACO offers multiple service plan options with yearly or monthly terms, so operations large and small can find a plan that suits them best.
