Five Star Creates Custom SCADA System for One of the Largest San Antonio Water Producers

Five Star Electric’s Controls and Automation Group recently completed an RTU-based SCADA system for one of San Antonio’s largest water producers. This system provides supervisory control and data acquisition for more than twenty well sites spread across multiple square miles of Texas Hill Country ranch land.

The scope of supply for this project not only provided new radio equipment and SCADA/HMI, but it also required the integration of existing infrastructure. This infrastructure included variable frequency drives previously provided by both Five Star Electric and other vendors, existing wells running completely different radio hardware, and the site’s high service pump skid running MODBUS TCP.

Not only were we able to integrate all of this hardware seamlessly, Five Star Electric’s Controls and Automation Group was able to provide a complete, unified interface for operations allowing operators to control and monitor the entire system securely from anywhere in the world. As a direct result of the capabilities provided by Five Star Electric’s Controls and Automation Group, our customer has reported production levels more than doubling previous records!

Five Star Electric managed this project from conceptual design stage through full system development, testing, commissioning, and post installation service support. Our experienced SCADA and Automation Group can provide you with the capabilities to achieve your technology goals, the flexibility to handle your unique situation, and the affordability to meet your demanding budget.
