SCADA & Controls

At Peerless Midwest, we offer the latest automation and control technologies in the water supply and treatment industry. From basic one or two pump controllers to complex state-of-the-art SCADA systems, we have the expertise to design, install and maintain control systems of any size or complexity, tailored to each customer’s specific needs. Utilizing readily available, non-proprietary components combined with custom software, our systems are robust, reliable, and offer scalability and the features our clients value, including secure remote access and a variety of alarm options.

SCADA Systems

SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) systems are used to monitor, control, and analyze industrial devices and processes, and enable on-site and remote gathering of data. At Peerless, we utilize it for customer systems requiring a higher level of monitoring and control.

A Peerless SCADA system starts with a programmable logic controller (PLC) mated to customer-specific application software and a touch screen operator interface. The PLC utilizes real-time data and various inputs and outputs to continuously monitor and control system devices and perform analytics. The control system can be accessed by the operator to review system performance and historical data through the touch screen interface, or remotely via PC, tablet or smartphone. System alarm alerts can be programmed to deliver via text, email, or voice calls to multiple persons, utilizing either hardware-type alarm dialers or newer software solutions.

Portable Pressure By Peerless

When you have a storage tank down and are trying to maintain system pressure, we have an emergency solution. The Peerless Temporary Pressure Control Unit is a variable frequency drive-based motor control that incorporates a standby generator and an automatic transfer switch. Upon delivery to your pump station, we simply connect it to line power and motor leads, install a pressure sensor in the piping, and then dial in the system pressure, ensuring worry-free pressure. If a power failure occurs, the standby generator kicks in to ensure uninterrupted service.

The benefits? The variable frequency drive adjusts the motor speed to maintain pressure regardless of flow. This means no more employee overtime to throttle a hydrant, no more pressure surges from sticking relief valves and no more short cycling with hydro-pneumatic tanks. And your operating costs will be significantly lower because the pump moves only as much water as is needed.

If you think a water tower inspection or tower maintenance may be in your utility’s future, contact Peerless Midwest to learn if Portable Pressure by Peerless is the solution for you.
