The FZ300 pump monitoring and tank monitoring unit picks up pump run and tank
level signals from your pump station control panel. If an alarm or status change
occurs the wireless monitoring unit transmits the signal to the monitoring
website where the condition is recorded and then distributed to as many email
addresses, cell phones via text message, or pagers as you like.
Ideal for water and wastewater pump stations, street drainage lift stations or
runoff pumps, the FleetZOOM pump station monitoring solution provides lift
station remote monitoring to make sure your water system is in top form. Remote
pump monitoring ensures critical the water system is ready while extending life
and reducing maintenance costs.
When the status of your pump or tank changes, notifications and alarms are

FleetZOOM lift station monitoring for municipal water and wastewater
provide pump station telemetry for the entire network of large pumps
and tanks throughout a city or highway system that
move water from one elevation to another. The
FZ300 remote pump monitor watches these pumps and tanks that
provide drinking water to homes and businesses,
remove wastewater and even manage runoff by
pumping out large volumes of water in recessed
street areas such as underpasses, large dips in
the street or natural valleys. Water will collect
in these areas of the street if it is not pumped
out. The reliable operation and maintenance of
these pumps is usually the responsibility of the
city or the department of transportation where
the pump stations are located. While periodic
visits to pump stations by maintenance
personnel can help, continuous, real time,
remote pump station monitoring provides better service to the
city's residents. It saves the responsible city
or department of transportation a great deal of
money, while simultaneously improving the
quality of service. It also reduces the
likelihood of service interruption or
unexpected emergency maintenance.
Drinking water pump stations usually have at
least two pumps that alternate each pump cycle
for both redundancy and mechanical wear on the
pump impellers and motors. These systems are
commonly called duplex pump stations and in some
cases triplex pump stations when three pumps are
used for one site. Each time the pump controller
determines pumping is needed, a toggling series
of motor starters alternates evenly to run each
pump to run every second or third pumping event.
The pump controller is responsible for starting
the pumps and makes decisions about when to run
the pumps based on a combination of wet well
(tank level), water pressure, and flow rates.
All of these parameters are continuously
monitored with the FleetZOOM
FZ300 remote pump monitoring system and notify maintenance personnel if any
monitored signal gets out of its appropriate
range. A pump run time logger is used to monitor the duty cycle,
or the percentage of time the pumps are being
run and the run time for each pumping cycle. A
pump's life is unnecessarily shortened if the
pump is turned on and off too frequently. The
FleetZOOM pump run time monitor can track each pump run time,
the total run time over a day, week or any
time frame needed for reporting. If the pump
is running too much, or turning on and off
too frequently, maintenance personnel are
notified so adjustments can be made to the
pump controller settings.
Many of the same monitoring features desired
for drinking water pump controls are utilized
on a wastewater pump monitor. In typical wastewater lift
station systems a large wet well (or tank)
is utilized to store wastewater for short
periods of time which also enables the
substation to handle surges in wastewater
flow which are common during certain times
of each day. Some wastewater lift stations
are not connected to municipal wastewater
systems at all, so "pumper trucks" have to
collect the wastewater periodically.
Without wastewater pump monitoring these pumping services have
to visit the tank far more often than
necessary to make sure the tank does not
overflow since the fill rate of the wet
well is variable. The FleetZOOM
FZ300 remote pump station monitoring system reports the wet
well level and these unnecessary trips
can be avoided saving fuel, personnel time,
and ultimately saving the responsible city
or municipality a great deal of money.
Street drainage or runoff lift station pumps
remove water that collects at the bottom
of underpasses or other parts of streets
or highways that won't drain naturally.
The bigger the street, the larger and more
critical the pumping station is to ensure
safe passage for cars and trucks. Most street
runoff pump stations feature a large 50 to
100 horsepower pump, a wet well, tank level
sensor, and in most cases a backup standby
generator to power the pump during power
outages that occur during severe storms.
Without a pump station monitor, the city or department of
transportation has to rely on someone to
call them if the pump station has malfunctioned.
During malfunction an underpass could fill
with water making it impossible for traffic
to get through. Worse yet, any cars or trucks
that risk driving through the runoff flooding
that will accumulate will endanger their
occupants. It is in the best interest of
the city or department of transportation
to use a lift station monitor for pump stations with a
system like FleetZOOM provides so
crews can be dispatched
when a lift station alarm goes out to crews so they
can repair them or block traffic when
necessary for the safety of
Cities and departments of transportation need
continuous real time remote monitoring of all
of their pump stations to provide the highest
quality of service to their residents. In the
past a telephone based alarm autodialer or an expensive
proprietary pump station scada telemetry system were
utilized at each pump station to meet these
objectives. Now thanks to improvements in technology
FleetZOOM is able to provide an easier to install
and lower cost wireless real time monitoring
system. The FleetZOOM FZ300 provides
full lift station scada capabilities at a cost of a
simple cellular lift station monitoring system.
Some key features of the
FleetZOOM wireless pump monitoring system include totally wireless
operation; no phone lines or data lines are
required at the facility. The entire system
is web-based so no software is bought or
needs to be installed to utilize the system.
The lift station pump monitor system is easy to install, and an internal
battery backup on the transmitter keeps
the system up and operating during power
outages in addition to notifying city and
department of transportation personnel
about loss of power at a particular pump
station. The system provides daily email
and text updates and gives immediate
notification of any alarms or events.
Each daily report can display pump run time,
duty cycles, on/off status, water pressure,
flow, utility power status, wet well levels
with high/low alarm status, pump warnings
such as pump moisture or pump over
temperature, general faults and all standby
generator status and alarm conditions.
The FZ300 features 14 digital inputs that interface with dry contacts (relays) on the
Analog inputs can interface with optional tank level sensors to monitor tank
levels. In addition to alarming on status changes, the system keeps track of
pump run time and
pump run events.
The FZ300 monitors the voltage of its DC power supply which enables the system
to alarm on main AC power failure if used with the optional onboard backup
No software to buy, install or maintain; all mapping and data features are
accessible over the FleetZOOM monitoring web site from any computer with
Proactive service reminders are automatically generated and sent as equipment
reaches service intervals based on run-time. Service logs and manuals available
over the monitoring web site reduce paperwork and automate record keeping while
providing up to the minute service records for all of your monitored equipment.
