Pulsar Process Measurement Ltd.’s Ultimate Controller is a control system that combines ultrasonic level and flow measurement, RTU and advanced pump control in one economic, easily programmed, modular unit with dedicated web server remote control and touchscreen HMI - now also with WITS protocol.
Ultimate Controller has been designed to be modular and expandable, with a range of peripherals that provide almost unlimited I/O, pump power monitoring including pump reversing and even a remote infra-red camera, allowing viewing of the well and the station from base. Motor Control components are kept separate from the ICA section of the panel for convenience and safety. Installation is simplified and panel costs kept to a minimum by Ultimate’s very small size and choice of wall or panel mount versions.
Ultimate Controller features a clear, intuitive touchscreen interface and a full set of advanced control functions including: burst/block warnings; time to spill alarms; predictive maintenance index; asset performance index measuring kwh/m3/m which allows station comparisons within a catchment area in order to schedule station maintenance more effectively; and many more functions. Many man-hours can be saved and carbon footprint reduced by Ultimate’s automatic pump trip reset function, that helps to avoid unnecessary trips to site just to reset a pump. Further sophistication within Ultimate includes monitoring flow rates during storm conditions and supporting Compliance reporting when using Flow Pulse, Pulsar’s non-invasive flow monitor, or other flow device.
Remote telemetry includes the water industry standard WITS DNP3 protocol. The Ultimate Controller includes the facility to remotely access the data from the unit from any internet enabled device. Graphical data from any Ultimate Controller, including echo traces, level and flow history or operating parameters, can be accessed, viewed or even modified from PC, mobile phone or tablet.
