Blower monitoring and protection function
To monitor the function of the blower is of vital interest for every sewage treatment plant owner -the blower is the heart of the plant. In case the diffuser or the tubes are jammed, the plant owner can save money if the blower is turned off before it gets destroyed.
Normally a small tube has to be installed between a relatively expensive pressure sensor and the air hose of the blower to monitor the pressure and the blower. Sequetrol® starter does not need all this. It monitors the energy consumption of the particular blower, learns its “fingerprint” and can thus detect any malfunction or overload of the blower.
Output timing parameters and Eco-modes
The ON and OFF times for each output can be preset and later changed in the menu. The outputs can be coupled for sludge removal: In this case the blower will be switched on when the valve to the sludge removal is open. Another option is, to activate the second (e.g. sludge) output at a certain time, for example at 6 am and 11 pm.
To save blower runtime and thus energy, it’s possible to distinguish between reduced and normal load. For example during holidays or weekends there is less water inflow, the blower ON times can be reduced. This ECO-mode can be programmed for nighttime or weekends respective weekdays. Moreover, for holidays the length of the absence can be entered to keep the ECO-mode active during this period.
The full menu structure is adaptable according to your needs.
Some examples: It’s up to you, if the serviceman can delete the operating hours of the particular outputs. You decide, if the end customer can operate the outputs manually. Do you want to allow servicemen to change the ON/OFF times of the outputs?
Like this, every sewage treatment plant manufacturer will get the control unit he needs.
Outputs and Inputs
The Sequetrol® starter control unit for decentralized sewage treatment plants is equipped with three outputs and one digital input. The blower output is lead out to the mains socket. Thus the blower can be easily connected by end customers. The valve output can be connected by a screw-type terminal inside the plant and lead out through a cable grommet. The third output is a low-voltage (5VDC) alarm output suitable for our BonFlash alarm lamp. Moreover one alarm float switch can be connected to the starter. Thus a flooding of the tanks can be detected.
