Challenges with stand alone pumping systems
Challenges with Stand-Alone Pumping Systems

  • Are Warranty Repairs Justified?

    • Has the customer run the pump out of spec?

  • When to do Preventative Maintenance?

    • Currently its done to a time schedule, but might be too late and who was notified?

  • How to get Process information from the pump?

    • If only I could see the flow rate of this pump…

Today s solutions
Today’s Solutions

  • Is a Repair under Warranty?

    • Use the condition of the pump

    • Ask customer how they’re using the pump

    • Guess?

  • When to do Preventative Maintenance?

    • Keep track of running hours manually

    • Guess?

  • How to get Process information from pump?

    • Get Maintenance to add a PLC to the pump and do custom programming

    • Guess?

Preferred solution
Preferred Solution

  • A Precision Meter Solution that has been designed from the beginning to be easy setup and use.

  • Standalone and always connected with the ability to send emails when abnormal conditions occur

  • Able to keep track of running pump hours and email when it reaches an hourly maintenance schedule

  • Able to be viewed from a smart phone or web browser from anywhere in the world.

  • Does not require any changes to your PLC control process which might introduce risk or downtime

Netvuze application features
NetVuze Application Features

  • Up to eight Analog or Time Based Meters can be created to monitor pump status.

  • Each meter can monitor critical process parameters then generate alarms based on user directed input.

  • Individual meters can be set to control relay outputs used for external signaling or control.

  • Alarms can be configured to turn on a Relay, send an Email alert or be recorded into the Alarm log.

  • Network Connection provides Email alerts, Emailing Log files, Browser-based status and reports, even remote front panel control.

  • Three separate password permission levels provide separate levels of access and track changes and acknowledgment down to a specific user.

  • Secure web browser access with login authentication required for viewing or updating all functionality.

  • Easy to use setup Wizards for all configuration functionality and parameter input.

  • Dynamic Email Alarms are customizable including real time sensor values, running state status, running time or other important information.
