This week our Engineering Manager met with the Prime Consultant for the City and visited the data center where the servers are housed. The two discussed system capabilities and the possibility of expanding the project.

As we await news from the City and there is little or no movement on the project, I would like to take this opportunity to recap the achievements to date on the project:

  • Two servers are running SCADA software and a third is running a database application.

  • 13 stations have been converted to cellular modem communication using Modbus.

  • Graphics displays have been created for the 13 stations.

  • Sample reports and sample help screens have been submitted for review.

  • A sample ‘representative’ site has been set up demonstrating the graphics for the remaining stations and has been submitted for review.
