Low-Cost Satellite-Based System Monitors Remote Unattended Water Facilities

ASTON, Pa., September 25, 2015 - When water and wastewater facilities are unattended and located in remote areas, it can take days or weeks for operators to discover changes in tank levels and pump malfunctions. To provide instant notification of these and other incidents that cause costly downtime, Sensaphone® developed the SAT4D system. This satellite-based monitoring system delivers immediate alerts of changes in conditions at pumps, wells and storage facilities located in areas without a phone line, Ethernet connection or cellular service.

The SAT4D system can monitor virtually any critical condition 24/7, including security and power status. When an alarm occurs, the system sends notification to up to eight telephone numbers and six email or text messages. The SAT4D system is self-powered and can operate for over three years on its replaceable battery. GPS technology pinpoints the location and status of equipment being monitored. Each unit is sealed in an enclosure to protect it from harsh conditions.

“The SAT4D system is an affordable way to get instant alerts of problems at unattended facilities that can cost thousands of dollars in downtime and repairs,” said Dave DeFusco, vice president of engineering at
Sensaphone. For more information, click here to watch a short video that highlights the benefits of the cost-effective SAT4D system.
