SIXNET INDUSTRIAL ETHERNET SOLUTION FOR COMPLEX APPLICATION
The customer needed to connect fifteen surveillance cameras, a gate access control system, and a plant SCADA system over the ethernet. The project posed significant challenges: cable runs too long for CAT 5e/6 ethernet cable; new trenches not feasible due to cost; necessary redundancy; equipment supplied by multiple companies; and a budgetary cap. Neal Systems solved the application requirements with Sixnet / Red Lion SLX-8MG-1 (2-pair SFP fiber and 4/6-RJ45 copper) with 2-SFP GMFIBER-SFP-500 transceivers. This cost-effective solution provided ample bandwidth, the necessary data management tools, redundancy, and minimal network downtime, all without the high cost of digging trenches to install underground conduit.
PUMPING STATION WIRELESS COMMUNICATIONS PROBLEM SOLVED
Neal Systems provided wireless modems to transmit signal from the pumping station at a municipal wastewater treatment plant. Their previous wireless communications had some performance issues, so Neal Systems applied Sixnet and Elpro wireless products.
METRIX VIBRATION/TEMPERATURE MONITORING SYSTEM FOR 7 HORIZONTAL PUMPS
Neal Systems commissioned a Metrix Datawatch monitoring system for a Kentucky-based pump manufacturer for temperature and vibration monitoring of seven new pumps.
METRIX SETPOINT VIBRATION SYSTEM SUPPORTS D.C. WATER EXPANSION
Neal Systems won a major bid for a new Metrix Setpoint vibration monitoring system to the Washington, D.C., water authority. The system will provide vibration and temperature monitoring for new pumps that are being supplied at one of the facilities.
SIXNET CELLULAR COMMUNICATIONS ENSURE CONTINUOUS REMOTE MONITORING FOR TANK / WELL LEVELS
Neal Systems provides remote monitoring capabilities for a New Jersey Utilities Authority using Sixnet cellular communications. Nine remote locations report tank and well levels to a central SCADA system, which switches pumps on and off to maintain levels. This NSI solution provides enterprise-class functionality that enables secure, reliable wireless data access – anywhere, anytime. Wireless monitoring and control is a simple, reliable, and cost effective alternative to conventional landline. This maintains easy, secure, and redundant monitoring and switchover to existing land lines, thereby maintaining data reliability and security. If cell service fails, landlines will take over and then automatically switch back when service is reinstated.
