How We Can Help You

Campbell Scientific systems for rural water monitoring and control can measure water level and flow, and then control pumps and valves based on those measurements. Our systems are so versatile that they can accommodate about any sensor you need to use. With multiple communication options available (MODBUS, DNP3, TCPIP), each system can be configured for any size of network (hardwired or wireless), from simple, single-tank monitoring to large networks of hundreds of stations.

More Details about Our Rural Water Systems

Reliability

Our products have been proven in hundreds of applications worldwide; they perform equally well in cities or in "the-middle-of-nowhere."

Monitor any Rural Water Parameter

We can measure almost any sensor with an electrical output: water level, water flow, chlorine, turbidity, conductivity, pump performance, and more.

Water and Power Conservation = Money Savings

Automated control turns pumps and other equipment on only when needed or only during low power rate periods. One city cut their power consumption in half in the first month of operation.

Smart Control

Our systems can control electrical devices (pumps, valves, alarms, chemical injectors, gates, etc.) based on measured values, time, or events.

Alarms

System alarms such as reservoir level, pump failure (or other equipment), intrusion (or other security) can trigger voice-synthesized phone calls (your system can speak to you), on-site audible alarms, or visual alarms.

Telemetry

You can eliminate cables by using wireless communications: radio, cellphone, or satellite. Hardwire options include telephone lines, short haul, multidrop, or Internet.

Integrated System View

Monitor all sites from one central computer running our software or a third-party package. Our software provides a graphical interface that provides the operator with a view of the status of remote sites, as well as the ability to acknowledge alarms and control the system.
