Scout Pump Controller


The Scout Pump Controller, ScoutPC, is a small, dedicated simplex/duplex pump controller with an integrated industrial alarm notification and remote monitoring system. The ScoutPC combines two proven products into a single dedicated unit - the Mercoid Pump Controller and the Antx DiaLog Scout.
