Pump Monitoring

With proper monitoring, you can save energy and reduce costs.

By trending pump efficiencies (inputs, outputs and power consumed), predictions can be made as to how long they will last and foresee when they will fail.

Our software solutions can graphically show trend data over long periods of time so you know when pumps are operating and make adjustments that can save energy by operating pumps at off-peak times.

Remote Monitoring

Monitor pressures and flow rates that can suddenly change.

EBPro, our free HMI configuration software, and Maple Systems hardware provide continuous monitoring for unmanned pump stations and treatment stations via remote connections that allow users to access data on a smart device, without leaving their vehicle. Remote monitoring keeps city workers efficient, allowing them to send information to a central facility to monitor tank levels, oxygen levels, flow rates and alarms.

Traceability

EPA regulatory data collection and reporting are easily accomplished.

The security system built into EBPro has the ability to monitor user access, log maintenance records, and track changes to set points and adjustments.

Having the knowledge and assurance that everyone involved has done what they were supposed to do will allow you to focus on the more important issues such as improving operations and product quality.
