Traditionally, to be able to remotely monitor your data you needed a substantial investment into a SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) system. This was usually limited to larger municipalities and industrial applications that had the necessity and funds to monitor multiple locations and types of sensors.
Today, SCADA is still an excellent option for those types of customers but there is a new movement towards pushing data into the cloud. From there the data can be viewed on a web interface that can allow the user to view data from a number of sites and sensors. Most programs can display real time and historical data, have graphing features and can control sensor settings. Some systems can also be setup to send alarms via text/email when a predetermined level has been exceeded or circumstance has occurred.

Users have a wide range of sensors to choose from but most rely on proprietary software. Eno Scientific wisely designed their sensors so that they may be added into a pre-existing system or interface of the users choice freeing them up from managing sensor data on multiple web platforms/apps. Our cloud based partners can suggest the appropriate method of pushing data up including WIFI, GSM, CDMA and Radio. (Note: Some methods may require a data plan.)
|Well Watch 670|
Eno Scientific's Well Watch 670 can monitor wells below 10” in diameter, or larger if using a sounding tube, and down to 7,000ft. Data transmission can be made through any of the included outputs RS232, RS485 (Modbus), 4-20mA or 0-5V. As with all of our products it utilizes our Sonic Sense Technology TM and provides continuous water level readings without the risk of contamination or damage to the well equipment caused by lowering an object into the well.
|Well Watch 700|
The Well Watch 700 Series water level indicators, which will be released in Spring of 2017, uses a patent pending technology to monitor the water levels in large diameter industrial wells. This stainless steel probe with din rail mounted controller provide professional and accurate readings for the municipal, irrigation and agricultural customers. The Well Watch 700 is flow meter compatible and includes two independent relays which may be used for pump control or remote alarms. Data transmission can be made utilizing one of the RS232, RS485 (Modbus), SDI-12, 4-20mA, 0-5V or Ethernet connections.
