Village of Wellington Demos Lift Station Technology
The Village of Wellington in southern Florida last year selected MultiSmart pump station manager from MultiTrode for its lift station monitoring and control.
So far, the village has installed and commissioned 52 sites, which are connected to the Trihedral SCADA software. Local cities recently were invited to see a practical demonstration of the system.
"We had a mix of products in our 105 lift stations, with the majority being relay controlled," explained Jason Faranda, field service supervisor. "The three-phase supply monitoring in MultiSmart helped us to identify the real supply problem in our stations. We thought there was a neutral issue with Florida Power and Light, but MultiSmart identified the real problem."
