The Universal Pump Controller Keeps Pumping Out Features.

The division of N2P Controls that manages our pump controls has been doing incredibly well, considering we are yet to start marketing this part of our business (although watch this space in early 2019). The team in Pump Controls have been working away at our Universal Pump Controller (UPC) which boasts some very impressive features already. The latest firmware update now allows for a programmable Run Window where you can configure the pump to run only during set times, unless a high-level alarm fault occurs. This is perfect for areas when the reticulated sewer system is full during peak periods. ... Read More

Knowing what’s going down the toilet – the IoT of your Number 1s and 2s.

You may have already heard us talk about the Internet of Things (IoT), but if not, this is where all your devices start working together via a Wi-Fi network to perform various tasks.

At N2P Controls, however, we’ve brought the IOT to Wastewater plants (as well as Asphalt plants and similar industrial applications). For example, we can now have controllers that will link to your home Wi-Fi network and send data to your service provider about your plant. Why would this ... Read More

Regardless of whether your Asphalt Plant is a small batch operation or a multi-million dollar continuous plant ... ... would it be more profitable if you knew accurately some of the following? How much waste was made per mix? How much energy was used per mix? What is the overall cost per tonne produced? How does our plant compare to others?

This means limited CAPEX up-front and the benefits of our upgrades sooner rather than later. ... Read More
