PCM Connect!

Easily import plant data into the U.S. Water Industrial Group Process Control Monitoring™ (PCM) digital communication and reporting hub using PCM Connect!, a secure, small form factor data appliance.

PCM Connect! is a compact, custom programmed industrial PC manufactured by OnLogic that requires 110 volt AC power, an Ethernet connection to the treatment plant instrumentation network, and a separate internet connection. The device continually captures plant network measurements from sensors and programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and stores the values within its local database. Data is pushed hourly to Amazon Web Services (AWS) and then digitally posted to the PCM application database.

 

Through a VPN, U.S. Water Industrial Group technicians program device capture routines remotely, avoiding travel costs without sacrificing security.
