BECSys5 Pool pH and Chlorine Controllers lead the way in remote communications

BECSys5 Pool pH and Chlorine Controllers lead the way in remote communications
July 30, 2014

BECS Technology ‘Sys5’ pool pH & Chlorine controllers, from the USA, lead the world in remote communications - making it easier for commercial pool owners and operators to stay in touch and in control of multiple pools. 

Examples of this are at Centenary Pool, Brisbane and at the new Gold Coast Aquatic Centre in south east Queensland - venue for the upcoming 2018 Commonwealth Games Swimming – as well as at the exciting new Wet’n'Wild Sydney waterpark. 

Using a single blue CAT5 Ethernet cable to the plantroom it’s now possible for staff to view all of a site’s pool plant performance simultaneously on a single PC screen - see image above. This feature not only gives immediate notification of any alarm conditions, with automatic alarm callout by e-mail or SMS to up to eight contacts, but it allows simple remote adjustment of setpoints and alarm points by the operator from the office. 

Where previously this feature was only available to modern aquatic centres by making the controllers report to expensive and complicated building management systems, it is now readily available to any size of pool or aquatic centre using a single CAT5 cable or BECS Wi-Fi module and the PC connection software provided with BECSys controllers. 

‘BECSys for Windows’ PC software is Windows 8 compatible and is extremely easy to install, set up and use by operators and staff.

Considerable savings can now be made on the amount of cabling and electrical engineering required between the plantroom and offices in new aquatic centre projects, with the system being fully compatible with most PCs or Council networks. Modbus compatibility is an option for BMCSystems.

BECS Technology also offers a ‘mobile device server’ if operators wish to control their pool from anywhere using an iPad, iPhone or similar Android based device.

A free App is already available with BECSys controllers for remote monitoring of the control systems, enabling monitoring of all aspects of filtration and chemical dosing plant performance, if required.

For information on BECSys controllers and for your local installation/service representative, contact BECS Technology Australian distributor Tim Batt of Tim Batt Water Solutions Pty Ltd on 0438 889 268, E:
