Service operation in a well field

Water extraction Monitor and control drinking water supply systems

A future-proof water supply is only plausible if water extraction is done in an environmentally conscious and sustainable manner. Due to the increasing stress on our natural water resources, water extraction is high technical and technological challenge.

Discover solutions for proactive management of groundwater resources.

Safeguarding the water supply

There are many possibilities for water extraction. Depending on the quality of the ground or surface water, different preparation processes are involved in the drinking water supply process. The size of a plant or a network is also crucial in the selection of the technologies to be used. Phoenix Contact provides solutions for all types of water extraction. Standardized systems and software solutions, including modern interfaces, guarantee secure remote control communication for decentral well systems.

Installing or modernizing conveying systems for groundwater abstraction often presents a technical challenge, especially with regard to the automation technology. Preventive maintenance and the use of remote control technology are indispensable for distributed groundwater wells. Phoenix Contact provides a preconfigured, configurable solution that performs all necessary control and regulation tasks for wells.

Control cabinet solutions take on control and regulation tasks for decentral utilities. These include the controlled switching of devices and recording the measurement values. Important messages on precipitation and ground water levels are transmitted to the higher-level control system via a common remote control protocol (IEC 60870-5-104, DNP3, OPC UA) and to the operating personnel by SMS.

Predictive maintenance means permanent monitoring of systems and assemblies via state-of-the-art sensors. Indications of wear are detected in good time and further damages and failures are avoided.
With Pump Monitor, the solution for easily realizing predictive maintenance, you can monitor the status of your pumps and motors from anywhere and at any time.

Smart water management

The intelligent and resource-efficient operation of well systems is achieved through process transparency combined with information from the environment. The well pumps are controlled target-specifically using function blocks, and the data from individual wells is transmitted to a cloud. All relevant measurement and consumption values are processed and compared to external data such as weather forecasts and electricity rates. From this information, recommendations for action can be derived for managing the well system with the highest possible efficiency. The result is an energy and cost savings with maximum resource conservation.

Cost-effective protocol conversion Transfer process data from different remote control stations to the control room via standardized remote control communication. Industrial PCs convert the data into classic remote control protocols, such as IEC 60870-5-104 and IEC 60870-5-101.

In addition, the communication can be transmitted to current technologies, such as OPC UA, so you have all the measuring points of remote stations for water extraction constantly in view.
