Migration solution helps Oregon water utility update its plant

A water utility in Oregon needed to update the control equipment in its filter plant.

Some of the equipment was 25 years old and could only start a pump and give a run confirmation. The utility needed more information, including flow and pressure. It had legacy PLCs reporting through expensive phone lines. Industrial Systems was the contractor who sold the water district on installing Allen-Bradley® PLCs using a ProSoft Technology migration module to communicate with the older equipment via Modbus®.

Three Allen-Bradley® PLCs were installed with a ProSoft module in each for the remote site, the pump station, and the reservoir site. Modems were used to communicate to the master station. They are now able to get the data they needed.
