No two aquatic applications are the same; and over the years, we’ve found that every real-world application has a unique set of needs. That’s why Pentair Aquatic Eco-Systems offers a variety of controller solutions that deliver a wide-range of capabilities for monitoring and control of your specific system needs. Our custom-configured controller systems provide unparalleled visibility of your aquatic facilities’ unique parameters; along with the ability to monitor and control a nearly limitless number of system attributes and features.
Pentair Aquatic Eco-Systems employs a full-time team of pioneering engineers in our New Product Development (NPD) department. In order to meet our customer’s needs, our New Product Development team works through a detailed process which takes into account the needs of the end-user; determining how those needs can be met by a custom-configured controller solution.
The process starts with our highly-trained sales representatives, who work directly with customers to determine what’s needed for a particular application. Do you need to measure dissolved oxygen in the water, and control supplemental oxygen dosing if the level drops below a user-defined threshold? No problem… Do you want to have a touch screen that shows the flow rate, water temperature and salinity for each tank in your system? We can do that! What about sending you a text message or email if an alarm triggers a water leak when you’re not on site? No problem…
To put it simply; our highly-skilled team can combine sensors, relays, programmable logic controllers, touch screens, wireless systems and computers to provide a comprehensive overview of any number of system parameter that you desire; along with the ability to manipulate and change those parameters in real time. The possibilities are limitless, and the process starts as we work with you to determine which specific attributes of your system need to be monitored/controlled in order to allow the facility to operate in a stable, reliable manner.
As we work to understand the unique needs of your system and your specific operational goals, we’ll define the monitoring and control parameters by establishing a documented ‘Theory of Operation.’ This is a detailed set of specifications and operational information that is defined by us and approved by you. Once approved, the Theory of Operation is relayed to our Engineering dept. Then the Engineers get to work… For most solutions, we apply a layer of unique configuration and customization to one of our existing field-proven controller platforms (ex. Point Four™ C1210). Once we’ve outlined all the hardware and software, we’ll prepare a detailed cost quote which is presented to you for approval. Upon approval, our team gets to work assembling, programming and testing your tailor made controller. All monitoring and control equipment produced in the Pentair Aquatic Eco-Systems production facility is backed by UL508A certification for the design and manufacturing of industrial control panels.
