Small wastewater pumps can be given a new level of functionality and intelligence by integrating advanced software functions and state-of-the-art hardware into a conventional submersible design. Sensing the operating conditions and the environment, these pumps can adapt the pumping performance in real time, making smart decisions and providing feedback to the operator. Attractive customer benefits and large OpEx and CapEx savings can be achieved at the pump user and specifier levels.
