SVA-X16 pumping control with 4G module

Controlling and communicating between mini pumping stations and the main control station in pressure sewer systems is of crucial importance. Effective and timely action is necessary in case of malfunction to keep the duration of any disruption of the pressure sewer process to a minimum. Today, much of this communication is channelled through analogue lines. Due to the ISDN/PSTN phase-out, these lines will be eliminated step by step effective from 1 September 2019. For pumping stations, this may require the conversion of current telephone connections to the 4G wireless network. In collaboration with Mous Waterbeheer, a sector-specific module, the SVA-X16, has been developed for controlling mini pumping stations.

The benefits

  1. Monitoring mini-pumping station control commands across various locations
  2. Real-time online display of pumping station status and immediate insight into issued alerts
  3. Repaired alerts are automatically reported closed to the main control station
  4. Power failure reporting on each pumping station via emergency power supply

Monitoring mini pumping stations in pressure sewer systems

Simple conversion of existing pumping control cabinets

The SVA-X16 4G is one-to-one interchangeable with the Radius system’s outdated analogue technology. It includes a new, improved pumping station control unit and a modern, wireless 4G modem. Old functionalities are maintained, the existing magnetic switches, wiring and thermal protection devices are reused. Migration is a question of plug & play. This makes the conversion time short and keeps conversion costs low. The SVA-X16 can be combined with a red light on the panel or in the cabinet.

Completely new control system

The SVA-X16 can also be used as a monitoring and communication unit in completely new control systems for mini pumping stations. By combining the module in a new switching panel with floats, conventional relay technology and thermal protection devices, a completely new pumping station control unit is created. A unique feature of this configuration is that a PLC unit is no longer needed. This makes the setup simple, affordable and easy to maintain.

The SVA-X16 contains the monitoring and control functions. The data is transmitted over the 4G network to the SCADA environment where it is displayed and used to operate the pressure sewer system. When the SCADA system is temporarily unavailable, the pumping stations continue to operate independently.

Easy configuration and remote control

Configuration program SV-prog

You can easily configure the SVA-X16 4G using a PC or laptop. Use the free SV-prog software for this (see on page service/downloads). SV-prog gives you a clear overview of the configuration options.

Pumping station connected to your web-based SCADA system

By connecting the SVA-X16 4G to your web-based SCADA system, you are provided with a real-time online display of the status of all your pumping stations and direct insight into any issued alerts. In addition, you can deactivate and reactivate the pumping stations remotely. Aquaweb-based (Mous) and H2gO-based (I-Real) implementations have already been completed. Please contact us to discuss the possibilities of implementing other web-based SCADA systems.

Various malfunction alerts

  • Thermal: alert after specified number of recovery attempts
    Adjustable: number of recovery attempts | thermal malfunction cooling time; default is 30 minutes
  • Operating time overrun: alert when pump runs longer than desirable
    Adjustable: desired time; default is 120 minutes
  • Operating time overrun no pump available: alert when pump is switched off due to excessive operating time
    Adjustable: can be switched on/off
  • Level time overrun: alert when float switch is active longer than set time
    Adjustable: desired time; default is 240 minutes
  • High water: alert when high-water float is active longer than set time
    Adjustable: desired time; default is 60 minutes
  • Power failure: alert is issued immediately when mains voltage fails. Automatically reset when power is restored.

When malfunctions are repaired, they are automatically reported closed to the main control station. The high-water float switches off after a delay once the float switch is also off.

LTE-M: 4G for Machine-2-Machine

This SVA-X16 4G uses the LTE-M (in full: LTE Cat-M1) band of the 4G network especially for Internet of Things (IoT) applications. In comparison with other solutions, LTE-M has a number of strong advantages:

  1. Very good coverage including in buildings
  2. Supports texting by SMS
  3. High bandwidth for sending and receiving data

Select the right SIM

Selecting the right SIM is very important to ensure that our equipment operates correctly and safely. A non-activated SIM card from Wireless Logic Benelux (SIMPoint) is supplied by delivery. Wireless Logic Benelux (SIMPoint) is specialized in M2M applications and their SIM card has proven successfully:

  1. 4G connection with different SMS bundles
  2. Device automatically switches to 2G in case of failure of the 4G network
  3. Easy online activation without having to search for a suitable LTE Cat-M1 provider

It is up to you whether you use this SIM card. When you activate the sim, you enter into a provider agreement for at least one year with Wireless Logic Benelux (and not with Adésys). If you want to receive alerts via text messages, we recommend to add an SMS bundle to your subscription. For an overview of the costs, please refer to the "Quickstart activation SIM card" (see "downloads" on this page).

If you do not use the supplied SIM card, select a 4G SIM of a provider that supports the LTE Cat-M1 band. Otherwise you could use a 2G SIM card.
