Pumping Station | PLC | Meglab

Challenges
Obsolescence of automatic control systems at the municipal drinking water pumping station.

Solution
Renewal and modernization of the pumping station’s PLC, including the analysis, programming, manufacturing and installation. An HMI was added to the system, which also generates weekly reports sent to municipal authorities and smart phone alarms.

There are many advantages to this solution:

  • Streamlined pumping system;
  • Creation of a historical database to assess long-term needs;
  • Optimized response time in case of alarms.
