Automated control systems

Automated Control Systems

  • 50386 DCU at an upstream water level site monitors water level:

    • Pressure Transducer

    • Float switch

  • When alarm water levels are detected, transmit secure alarm reports.

  • 50386 DCU at a downstream site receives alarm reports transmitted by the upstream water level site and triggers the control:

    • Flashing roadway signs

    • Siren

Flashing roadway sign

Flashing Roadway Sign

  • Upstream water level triggers flashing roadway signs when water flows over roadway.

Automated siren warning

Automated Siren Warning

  • Upstream high water level triggers a downstream siren.

Base station software

Base Station Software

  • The NovaStar base station software collects data from multiple watersheds, displays text and graphical reports, and checks for alarms.

  • Web page data access of current and historical text and graphical data.

  • Alarm warnings with digitized voice dialers, email, and pager notification.

  • Siren and low water crossing light status viewing and control from web page.

  • Automated data export in text, SHEF, and XML.

NovaStar 5 Database Advantages

  • Locally hosted database

    • Data is kept onsite to insure ownership

    • Local access to data continues when external internet access goes down

  • Local database backups

    • Multiple database servers with synchronized database

    • A change in the master database is immediately copied to backup databases through SQL replication

  • Scheduled database backups

    • Intranet database backup to local backup servers

    • Internet database backup to HydroLynx

Novastar 5 data collection advantages

NovaStar 5 Data Collection Advantages

  • All NovaStar servers collect ALERT1 and ALERT2 data

  • Satellite and other agency (COE,USGS) imported from internet

  • Use serial or network connections to decoders

    • A network connection allows a NovaStar server to connect to decoders at remote locations

  • Data received from all decoders will be blended before filing in the NovaStar 5 master database

  • In failover mode, data is filed in the local database
