The Russellville Water and Sewer System has replaced a legacy PLC with a secure Bedrock™ industrial control system. Bedrock certified solution provider Brown Engineers, of Little Rock, Arkansas, completed the upgrade in November 2015 and the system has been performing to specifications ever since.
As part of a plan to realize as much as $2M in savings through improved control, monitoring, operational efficiency, and security of its electric grid and water treatment facilities, the City of Clarksville, Arkansas selected and implemented the Bedrock™ control system from Bedrock Automation.
The City implemented Bedrock to control both de-chlorination and storm water remediation operations, and is planning other integration and control applications as part of its ongoing modernization program. Systems integration firm Instrulogic of North Carolina provided programming support to help deploy and integrate the system with the City’s Inductive Automation Ignition™ SCADA HMI network.
