A provider of electrical solutions to a wide range of customers and other electrical contractors, from temperature and pressure measurements to providing small PLC solutions needed a solution when working with temperature and isolation.
The wastewater plant had an existing SCADA system that was not able to handle as many signals as necessary. They had three existing signals, that needed to go to a separate PLC – one flow signal and two level measurements.
A competing bid involved new transmitters, which would be a rather expensive solution. However knowledge about the DRSL-SP1 proposed a simpler solution at a significantly lower price point.
Additionally, by adding a wireless radio transmitter, a responsible technician is now able to monitor the flow and level signals remotely, as well as automating the control. This saves a daily two-hour drive to the location – worth around $30,000 in labor costs a year.
