Water Telemetry and Rural Water Management

Precision monitoring and control of critical water and wastewater infrastructure is our specialty. Rugged Telemetry (RT) has been delivering systems to rural water operators, commercial enterprises, and government organizations for the last decade.

Our systems are designed to work in the harshest of environments while providing extremely high reliability and proven return on investment.

Monitoring & Control

Telemetry Solutions Designed For The Harshest Environments

Water and wastewater systems are often located in environments too challenging for conventional communications systems. Without the necessary monitoring and control systems, water operators face severe implications in the event of a failure or loss of communications.

Rugged Telemetry has spent years developing and refining our systems to make connecting to these systems possible.

Proven Return on Investment

The ultimate control is more affordable than ever. Our system provides better visibility, control, and reliability. Our customers are able to greatly reduce risk, increase efficiencies, and provide total visibility, all of which results in a strong ROI.

Configurable SCADA Systems

One system, endless possibilities. No two water systems are the same. From monitoring a single tank to complete command and control of a large municipal water system, Rugged Telemetry has the solution. We have spent years designing systems that cover all of your critical components including sensors, meters, pumps, control valves, and tanks. Our systems are endlessly configurable and easy to deploy.

Tank Control System

RT provides complete visibility of the flow of water in and out of any tank. Our Intelligence keeps water at desired levels whether pumps or valves are 100 feet away, or 100 miles away. The Tank Control System can also monitor local conditions, such as gates leading into the complex or a hatch to the piping. The RT system is designed for easy in-field configuration or full remote configurations.

Pump / Valve Control System

RT provides pump and valve control systems that ensure your supply tanks are always filled. In addition, the system provides comprehensive information such as suctions and discharge pressures, water flow, and much more.

The system is highly intelligent and can autonomously respond to unexpected events to protect key components. For example, the system will shut down the pumps and notify proper personnel if it loses suction pressure. It will also continually monitor total flow volume and can identify early indications of downstream problems.
All of our products provide edge intelligence. The pump controller will allow you to rotate your pumps by cycle or run hours, and set up multiple relays to your VFD to run at different frequencies at different times of the day. We even control the onsite generator so you only need to turn it on when the tanks need calling water. No need to run it every time power goes out! Our control system is another step towards running a greener operation and saving money.  

WaterIQ Analytics and Management Platform

At Rugged Telemetry, providing complete control and 24/7 intelligence of your most remotely located assets - whether they are tanks, pumps, controllers, or even your vehicle fleet - is our specialty.

When it comes to providing that critical link, there is no single best answer. This is why we offer several different communications options. We are experts in cellular, low earth orbit (LEO) satellite, geostationary (GEO) satellite, unlicensed RF, and combinations of all of these.

We will recommend the best solution for your specific asset, no matter how difficult to reach or remote it is.
