Well and inspection shaft monitoring

Well and inspection shaft monitoring

Permanent shaft monitoring

Monitor and control the supply of process water in the industrial environment.

In a widely distributed network of wells and inspection shafts, water levels, the quality of the groundwater, and also sabotage beyond the treatment plant, for example, are monitored regularly.

With the WellControl solution, Phoenix Contact provides a turnkey control cabinet solution for controlling and monitoring wells and inspection shafts. Permanent shaft monitoring is easy to achieve, immediately issues a signal when the shaft cover is opened without authorization, and, thanks to online measurement, helps to fulfill increasingly stringent environmental regulations without extra outlay. The fully programmed solution needs only to be connected to the power supply unit and it is ready for immediate use. A solution with the approach "configure instead of program".

Your advantages

  • Easy integration, thanks to an open and manufacturer-independent automation system
  • Modular and compact data transmission solutions
  • Comprehensive IT security support from industry professionals
  • Continuous support with services for all project phases

Easy implementation with standard components

Automation technology for well monitoring

Benefit from a reduced startup outlay, thanks to guided configuration without the need for any programming. The IEC 60870-5-104 remote control protocol also enables easy and convenient connection to a control center. The field devices are connected via the Waterworx process library from Phoenix Contact. Based on pre-programmed function blocks, this enables the efficient engineering of your systems.

At the heart of the automation hardware is the modular AXC small-scale controller, which is optimally equipped for future extensions thanks to PROFINET and Modbus/TCP functionality. In addition, a comprehensive concept for surge protection and the power supply ensures the necessary security of supply and allows servicing to be planned.

The components used provide comprehensive diagnostic options, such that the state of your system can also be monitored remotely. MCR modules of the MINI Analog Pro range are also suitable for use in harsh environments. They filter and refresh all incoming analog values for further processing; repeater power supply operation of I/O devices can also be implemented easily.
