Project: Baton Rouge Wastewater Pump Station SCADA System (January 11, 2006)
Since the first SCADA pump station has been up and stable for the past few weeks, we are ready to begin a public access period. Here are the instructions for accessing the site:
In your Internet Explorer web browser type the URL 18.104.22.168
The first time the site is accessed a dialog box will appear asking for your permission to download a Microsoft ActiveX control named "Indusoft Symbol Control". You must allow the control to download to access the site. If your Internet Explorer security settings are set to block ActiveX controls, you will need to contact your system administrator.
A dialog box will appear; enter the User Name as guest and the Password as qds
Since the layout is subject to customer approval, you will see only the first of the 51 sites active (Pump Station 514). While the system is capable of remote pump run and speed control, this capability is disabled for public login. This pump station is not equipped with a rain gauge, so that screen is inactive.
Comments regarding your experience with the site are welcomed. These can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org If you are not able to access the site, we would appreciate a short note describing your browser version, operating system and network configuration. We can provide limited assistance.
The public access period will end January 30th.

We left the SCADA system working over the holiday weekend for testing. The system is doing what it is suppose to do , but there is a lot of fine tuning still needed. We requested feedback from quite a few of our employees about the functioning of the Web site and the ease of use; this week we will incorporate those suggestions into our system.

Some fruits of our labor are finally beginning to appear. The engineering staff did well to get the SCADA servers installed and running at the data center this past week. As I write this, the first of the upgraded existing RTUs is being installed at a pump station. The SCADA interface is taking form, though definitely still in the beta phase. We expect to have news next week regarding a public access period to the site.
