1/26/2014 – Snohomish County PUD again launched their fish trap into the river today to assist in counting the new salmon hatch heading to the ocean. This year the mechanism has a new monitoring feature to let the operating staff know the trap mechanism has stopped turning. That happens if debris fails to pass thru the trap properly and the trap needs to be cleaned to return to operation.
Numerous organizational members need to know the status of the system and all carry smart phones which can show web pages. The election add the monitoring system to the SCADANexus system already in place was clearly a winning solution. Today the system went “into the river” and the alarm monitoring system went “Live”. Below is a sample of the web page with the fish trap in operation.
