Efficient solution for elevated tank monitoring and control

Elevated tanks for drinking water supply are usually distributed over the entire area of a supplier and are also often located at points that are difficult to reach. Tight control and monitoring of these decentralized facilities is essential for a high level of supply security and for compliance with the statutory documentation requirements.

Modern M2M/IoT technology of the telecontrol systems from M2M Control can monitor and control remote elevated tanks effectively and economically, because all functions are integrated in a freely programmable device:

  • local control (e.g. pumps, slide valves, UV disinfection) via PLC functionality according to IEC 61131-3
  • safe data logging of all operating data (e.g. filling level, inflow, consumption, pouring, temperature, …) to meet the legal documentation requirements
  • active fault messages in case of malfunctions or faulty states of the system, either directly by voice message, SMS or e-mail or via a central server
  • inexpensive and wireless data transmission via mobile radio (LTE, UMTS, GPRS) for central operational management, storage and documentation

Our standard water management libraries are available for effective development. Ready-made solutions are available for many elevated tank/well constellations through our project partners.

Note long running times!

Water management plants have a very long service life. To avoid unnecessary efforts and costs in the future, the control and monitoring technology must also be designed for long periods of use.

With our compatibility manifesto we have created a basis for long-lasting solutions:

  • Future device generations are fully (backward) compatible with today’s devices and existing software can be used unchanged.

  • Future replacement of the control technology, e.g. due to technology changes, can therefore usually be carried out without new programming.
