Real-Time Alarm Systems

Over 2,500 utilities rely on Mission remote terminal units (RTUs). Most deploy an RTU at each sewer lift station, relying solely on the Mission system for monitoring. Others link the Mission data with their plant SCADA using an OPC link.

Unsure which RTU will meet your needs? Use the chart below for a direct comparison of the applications where each type of system is most appropriate. Also compare features and functionality to get the monitoring that is right for your unique needs.

The base model is our M110 system, which can be upgraded at any time. More advanced systems have the features of basic systems, plus the additional functionality listed in the chart. Every system has the following features:

  • Alarms: Real-time notifications by phone, email, pager, fax, and web portal—highly configurable with compound conditions and optional delays
  • Alerts: Emailed notifications to review previous hour or day anomalies for data such as excessive pump starts, runtimes, or additional information available with each specific device (listed in chart)
  • Reports: Downloadable or scheduled email reports for prior periods covering detailed information gathered by the RTU and information related to alerts
  • System Alerts: Notifications related to the system as a whole or a group of RTUs

  • TYPICAL APPLICATIONS
    M110MyDro 150M800MyDro 850Manhole Monitor
    WastewaterUse for real-time alarm notifications and hourly summary of pump runs and starts for sewer lift stations. Monitoring of forced main (master) pump stations. Monitoring low pressure sewer grinder pump. Monitoring industrial water quality. Discrete monitoring with alarms. Flow monitoring with pulse.The MyDro 150 has all the functionality of the M110, plus onboard interactive display and enhanced electronics. Use for applications such as real-time alarm notifications and hourly summary of pump runs and starts for sewer lift stations.Use for master lift stations where real-time pump state information or trending analog instrumentation is of value. Additional reports like Volumetric Flow Calculation can be employed for more accurate flow without requiring a flow meter. Also use for applications requiring automated remote control.The MyDro 850 has all the functionality of the M800, plus onboard interactive display and enhanced electronics. Use for master lift stations where real-time pump state information or trending of analog instrumentation is of value. Additional reports like Volumetric Flow Calculation can be employed for more accurate flow without requiring a flow meter. Also use for applications requiring automated remote control.Use for sewer manholes where alarm notifications of surcharge and high levels are of value to avoid Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) and Sanitary Sewer Overflow (SSO). Also use for communication vaults and other locations where an entry alarm is of value.
    WaterUse for reservoir monitoring where hourly levels are adequate. Also use for manual remote control of valves, booster pumps, or other assets.The MyDro 150 series has all the functionality of the M110, plus onboard interactive display and enhanced electronics. Use for reservoir monitoring where hourly levels are adequate. Also use for manual remote control of valves, booster pumps, or other assets.Use for Tank and Well automated control. Also use for chlorine residual and pressure monitoring.The MyDro 850 series has all the functionality of the M800, plus onboard interactive display and enhanced electronics.
