OnSight Remote Access Communications System

Convert existing controllers to remote monitoring for a better experience!
Lakewood Instruments OnSight Remote Access System

The OnSight Remote Access System converts most existing water treatment controllers into smart controllers with remote monitoring, system graphs, and accessible data logs. These features can be accessed via smartphone, tablet or pc, and provide a secure data link without actual control access to the controller.

In a post-COVID-19 world, access by a water treater to a customer’s system can be changed overnight. With the evolving world of contact tracing, it can be incredibly powerful to know what the basic system parameters are from a remote location. 

The OnSight system allows you to install remote monitoring without changing the controller at all, keeping your control scheme in place and reducing the cost of this upgrade.

Our system’s communications module can handle four 4-20mA analog signals, and our Model 1575e, 140, and 150 controllers just happen to have system conductivity as that type of output signal. The other 4-20 mA channels can be used for other system parameters – we suggest level transmitters (Echopods) that will let you know your chemical tank levels. In addition, the OnSight system handles up to four dry-contact digital inputs which can log blowdown valve activation (with the right valve!) or pump operation history.

We pair the communications module with a 4G router so that you can access the OnSight data directly from your pc, tablet, or phone. Through the built-in web interface, you can download system logs, system graphs over time, and set up alarm emails or text alerts to keep you apprised of any unplanned circumstances. Setup is easy – allowing you to convert a site-only controller to a true remote data logged system.

Your service reports can include more data and you will deliver an improved experience for your customer. Contact us at Lakewood to get more details on this innovative solution.
