PROJECTS (Ongoing and Recently Complete)

Cayucos Sanitation District, Lift Stations

Located on the central coast of California Pro3 Automation helped the Cayucos Sanitation District organize their data by tying in several lift stations into SCADA allowing the monitoring and recording of important information. To maintain the pristine coastal views sites were brought into the network via a secure, cellular VPN so as to avoid radio antenna. All cellular devices maintain the important "first responder" status, critical for a city service like sanitation and when fully completed the entire SCADA system will be centralized via Ignition at a new water plant. Utilizing Ignition will not only give the district the ability to view their control system over a range of connected devices, but will also enable them to send alarm and event notifications via text message or email, making their operators aware of situations as soon as they happen.

West Kern Water District, CVC Flow

For years the West Kern Water District in Taft, CA has had to have its operators manually check the totalizer on their water input to the Cross Valley Canal, a canal vital for moving water through the Central Valley. Pro3 Automation was able to help eliminate the manual reads and provide them with extra data by installing a PLC on-site and tying it into the network via ethernet radio to another nearby well field. The PLC, POE enabled switch and POE enabled radio are powered by a small solar system, also installed by Pro3 Automation. Consisting of a battery and two panels the system is large enough to power the site and send data back to their Ignition system. Using the PLC they now also receive total flow for the previous two days, a running total and total flow time for the day, all of which is integrated into their existing reports via Ignition.

Kiani Preserve, Ongoing

Pro3 Automation continues to help Kiani Preserve with their water monitoring, an important requirement in the state of California for any business using this precious resource. Pro3 Automation has installed additional flow control hardware in the form of valves and meters, as well as having programmed a scheduling system that allows the customer to control when and how much water will be delivered to their vineyards and fields. Control of the scheduling system was integrated into their current Ignition application and can be changed and monitored both locally and remotely by ranch hands with proper access rights, and by the ranch manager. With the state become increasingly demanding with how water is being used this system is critical in allowing precise monitoring and use of water.
