Small water treatment plants, secondary disinfection plants etc. tend to suffer from similar problems wherever they are in the world. The first is lack of communications SCADA infrastructure. The cost of which to install can be prohibitive. The second is the lack of a central DCS control infrastructure, again the installation of which can be cost prohibitive. The third is the remote location. Often these water plants are in remote and difficult to access locations when the weather can sometimes cut them off for weeks at a time.
With these three issues facing many water engineers around the world, a low cost solution to all three issues is available from Pi. A CRIUS® controller has the on board capacity to provide small scale SCADA, and full online PID control whilst the sensors (e.g. chlorine, pH, Turbidity etc.) are suitable for long term operation without operator intervention.
When, in 2009 Cork County Council in Ireland needed exactly this functionality on 20 small, remote sites they installed CRIUS® analysers from Pi to great effect.
