Maintaining safe water and wastewater operations are necessary for public health, which means there must be a constant watch over operations. The ability to automate much of the monitoring and control process so that operators can focus on other tasks is our specialty.

At Hawk, we offer everything from a simple alarming solution to a more advanced SCADA solution that allows collected data to be stored for reporting and troubleshooting, as well as planning for the future of your water system. Whether you are looking for a SCADA system for a water treatment plant or wastewater collection and treatment – or both – we can supply you with a real-time solution equipped with features monitor, operate and analyze your system successfully, both onsite and remotely.

With a Hawk SCADA system you can:

  • Choose the level of service you need, from a simple alarm on one asset to a complex system able to monitor and control both onsite and remotely
  • Reduce operating costs while improving system performance and reliability
  • Avoid after-hour calls by receiving alarms indicating the nature and severity of the problem
  • Eliminate the need to manually retrieve and record meter readings and log sheets
  • Be assured your data is safely stored on our three redundant servers
  • Never worry about getting help with you need it as we offer support 24/7/365

Because we customize all of our systems, it is difficult to give you a complete list of all the possibilities. But the systems below will give you a basic understanding of our offering. Be sure to contact us when you are ready for a free demo. We can’t wait to serve you.

Water & Wastewater Processing

Suggested configuration:
  • RedHawkTM alarm light / cellular alarm dialer
    • Simple installation - attach alarm output of any system asset and the light will turn on when output is activated
    • As well as onsite alarm light, the RedHawk will send out a real-time alarm to any number of contacts via a phone call, text or email message.
    • Standard system includes one high- or low-level alarm, power loss notification, communication loss notification
Add-Ons: If you decide later that you want the ability for remotely controlling the asset, the RedHawk comes equipped with a relay driver inside that can be used to remotely activate or deactivate one device. Simply call us to activate this feature.
For small water treatment or wastewater processing clients with up to 10 assets:

Suggested configuration:

  • RedHawk system is our recommendation for up to 10 assets, where it still makes sense to communicate between devices using cellular communication. Once you exceed 10 assets, it makes more sense to move into an RF-based system - see Pro SCADA system for details.
  • HawkEyeTM software installed on client workstation computer.
  • Central Terminal Unit (CTU) installed to monitor processes such as adding chemicals and filtering.
  • Remote Terminal Unit (RTU) installed at each monitored asset (pumps, tanks, etc.) to collect data to transmit to CTU.
  • Establish communication line(s) between monitored assets and CTU using cellular service.
  • Alarm notification (phone call, text message or email) when data falls outside of parameters set by the operator.
  • Data stored on Hawk Cloud servers.
  • Access to HawkWebTM - a data-driven version of HawkEye software, from any desktop computer away from the office
  • Access to HawkEye LiteTM - a native mobile app available for both Windows, iOS and Android.
For larger water treatment clients with 10 or more assets where it is more cost-effective to communicate via RF-based system than cellular, we recommend the Hawk Mesh system. The Hawk Mesh will monitor things such as power loss, well running, run times, overload and failure to start. From home or any computer, you can log in to our free web-based software, HawkWeb. Or, you can even force on/off your wells from anywhere in the world from your phone using our true mobile app HawkEye Lite, allowing you to have the confidence that your site is running properly. You may prefer to install HawkEye, our most graphic-rich and advanced software at your business workstation, for the most advanced control and reporting features. By using our cellular-based RTUs, you can attach outlying assets where it is not feasible to attach an RF link. Combining RF and cellular communication - or using a city's existing fiber ring or WAN, is a unique process not offered by many other SCADA providers.

Suggested configuration:

  • Hawk Mesh installed at each of your sites so that you can remotely monitor and control your existing control panels.
  • Central Terminal Unit (CTU) installed at a processing facility.
  • Remote Terminal Unit (RTU) installed at each monitored asset (pumps, tanks, etc.) to transmit data to CTU.
  • Establish communication line(s) between monitored assets and CTU - wireless, radio signal, fiber optics.
  • Alarm notification (phone call, text message or email) when data falls outside of parameters set by the operator.
  • Data stored on Hawk Cloud servers.
  • Access to HawkWebTM - a data-driven version of HawkEye software, from any desktop computer away from the office.
  • Access to HawkEye LiteTM - a native mobile app available for both Windows, iOS and Android.
  • Option to purchase HawkEye, our most advanced and graphic-rich software, to install on your business workstation.
For larger municipal clients with a desire to not only combine water treatment and wastewater processing facilities into one monitored system but also include other departments such as natural gas. By using our cellular-based RTUs, you can attach outlying assets where it is not feasible to attach an RF link. Combining RF and cellular communication - or using a city's existing fiber ring or WAN, is a unique process not offered by many other SCADA providers.

Suggested configuration:

  • HawkEyeTM software installed on main workstation computer (HMI) - possibly city operator office.
  • Central Terminal Unit (CTU) installed at both the water treatment facility and the wastewater processing facility to monitor processes such as adding chemicals and filtering.
  • Remote Terminal Unit (RTU) RTU installed at each monitored asset (pumps, tanks, etc.)
  • Establish communication line(s) between monitored assets and CTU - wireless, radio signal, fiber optics. This sometimes requires the removal of old landlines.
  • Alarm notification when data falls outside of parameters set by the operator via phone call, text message or email. Requires monthly data plan.
  • Trending data stored on Hawk Cloud servers
  • Access to HawkWebTM - a data-driven version of HawkEye software, from any desktop computer away from the office
  • Access to HawkEye LiteTM - a native mobile app available for both Window, iOS and Android.
