Designed and installed a telemetry system that enable the control and monitoring of several bore pumps located several kilometres apart from a central control room. This system saved time and money by reducing the labour demand that had previously been necessary for continually having to visit these pumps for starting, stopping and monitoring. Key components;
- Remote control of diesel powered generators to start on demand for operating the pumps. This also reduced the excessive wear and tear on the generators which had been previously left running even when the pumps weren’t operating.
- Solar powered telemetry system to provide the communications necessary to operate the system reliably from the remote control room.
