User case United Kingdom: Dura Pump

John Calder, CEO Dura Pump, The GSM-PRO2 setup is flexible and for a competitive pricing.

Outside the Netherlands the GSM-PRO2 is often used by regional water authorities. Dura pump uses the GSM-PRO2 to. Dura Pump supplies, installs, repairs and maintenance pump system for the industry. John Calder. CEO from Dura Pump: We have considered more systems, but the GSM-PRO2 offers maximum flexibility. Beside this the product is extremely reliable and available for competitive pricing in comparison to the competitors. It’s a good add-on to our own product; we sell our pump systems to our customers and offer directly the option to monitor and control our system.

Customers manage our pump system, tank levels and pump performance without physically going on site. They receive a warning message, before something gets an issue. When a water tank is almost full, due to heavy rain, then the GSM-PRO2 sends a message to the responsible person, who can take action immediately. For example opening a sluice to allow excess water to flow away. Besides the GSM-PRO2 monitors a pump in operation. The customers can see the pump operating hours and can judge if the pump has operated more hours than expected. This is a good indication for when the pump needs maintenance. The GSM-PRO2 receives constantly updates for more functionality and gets even more flexible. Therefore I will recommend this product for sure!

Introduction CONTA-SUPERVISION IoT portal

With the addition of the CONTA-SUPERVISION IoT portal CONTA-CLIP introduces the real-time experience for the GSM-PRO2 product family and at the same time multiple GSM-PRO2 I/O Communications modules can monitor and control processes remotely.

The CONTA-SUPERVISION IoT portal is available in a web based solution or APP. The App’s can be downloaded in the Google Play and Apple store.

Monitor universal inputs and receive messages on flank changes when the inputs are configured in digital mode. When the input is configured in analogue mode the messages are sent as soon as the upper or lower threshold values are exceeded. In digital mode the status of the input is graphically shown as an on/off button. The digital input can be given its own name for easy recognition. Additional to the analogue input the input units and value are mentioned and shown on a dynamic bar.

The relays outputs (digital) can be operated by a simple touch of a button on the CONTA-SUPERVISION IoT portal. As soon as the GSM-PRO2 I/O Communication module has changed the output a notification will be shown in the CONTA-SUPERVISION IoT portal.

User case Netherlands: Wasplein

Danny Harskamp, CEO Wasplein; “The GSM-PRO2 solutions saves us time and money. And ensures satisfied customers”.

The GSM-PRO2 is commonly used in the Netherlands by farmers for example in mushroom farms and for control of  irrigation systems. Next to this also the industry is a frequent user as well. One example is Wasplein. Wasplein develops, builds and sells complete car wash machine stations. 80% of the time the car wash stations are unattended. The carwash stations operate around the clock 365 days per year and so that visitors can wash their cars at their convenience by themselves with the available equipment. Danny Harskamp, CEO Wasplein, is an enthusiast user of the GSM-PRO2. “Machine stay machines and there always can be a malfunction. This is what I wanted to manage remotely and on an efficient way.”

After a long search and making a lot of comparisons I finally found the GSM-PRO2 solution from CONTA-CLIP. The service from CONTA-CLIP is good. When I have a question,  I call them they respond prompt. Also an advantage is that I can use the GSM-PRO2 solution next to my already developed system and I can configure it to my wishes. Before in case of a malfunctioning I needed to contact someone or go to the location by myself. Due to the slow reaction time we had complaining customers. Now I do this remotely. I can turn off the faulty machine and activate remotely another machine for the customer in a split second. This way the customer can continue with washing his car and we keep having satisfied customers. For us we save time and money. And more important: “Our customers are satisfied”.
