Water

Scout

The DiaLog Scout is a flexible and powerful solution for monitoring wells, storage tanks, distribution lines and booster pumps for small to mid-sized water plants.

For those plants that are always unmanned, the Scout provides 24/7 monitoring of all operational conditions and intrusion and maintenance personnel visits.

Typical conditions that are monitored and provide alarm notification:

  • Well pump failures
  • Booster pump failures
  • Low tank level from level switch or pressure transmitter
  • Tank overflow from level switch or pressure transmitter
  • Low distribution pressure from pressure transmitter
  • Loss of power
  • CL gas leak from a CL detector in the pump house
  • Residual CL level from CL analyzer
  • Personnel access to station - when on-site and total time on-site

Typical conditions that are monitored and reported for information purposes only:

  • Run-times and run cycles for 1-2 well pumps
  • Daily total flow from each well from flow meters
  • Run-times and run cycles for 1-2 booster pumps
