Multitrode's SafeSmart Backup Controllers provide a complete backup solution including pump control, level alarm, and pump thermal/seal protection for Pump Stations.

The SafeSmart Family consists of three products

  • Safe-TL - A backup pump controller used with the FailSafe Probe. It includes a display/keypad, monitors seal and thermal sensors from a pump with outputs for pump, level alarm, and thermal/seal. 
  • Safe-FSP - Similar to the Safe-TL, but with no seal fault detection or relay output for loss of Probe.
  • Safe-FS - A level alarm relay with an output for high level and loss of Probe.

 

SafeSmart (Safe-TL)

The Safe-TL is the next generation of backup control for Pump Stations. Most wastewater utilities around the world install independent high level backup alarms. A small number have installed backup control via PLC's or level relays. With EPA pressure, and budget cuts for staff, more are looking for a comprehensive money-saving system.

The SafeSmart Backup Controller provides a complete cost-effective single pump backup solution. Typically, a 3-sensor Multitrode Probe is connected to the SafeSmart and installed above the primary level - perhaps close to the imminent surcharge point. In the event of primary level or primary control failure, the Safe-TL can take over pump control - allowing the utility more time to deal with the problem.

Features include:

  • Detection of pump thermal problems to avoid potetial pump damage
  • Pump control for one pump - either primary or redundant control
  • One level alarm - either high or low
  • Manual (hand) operation from an external selector switch or keypad
  • Pump thermal protection - thermistor or thermal switch or Flyght FLS
  • Adjustable delays for pump start/stop and alarms
  • Failed Probe detection 
  • Adjustable conductivity sensitivity for Multitrode Probe
  • Parallel operation with MultiSmart
  • Seal and thermal protection from Flygt FLS input
  • Remote mount keypad
  • When used as a backup with an override manual/off/auto switch, the controller will also provide thermal protection in manual mode.

Safe-FSP 

The SafeSmart-FSP Backup Controller (Safe-FSP) provides a complete backup solution including pump control, level alarm and pump protection in a single tightly integrated package.

  • Perfect pump control for one pump -either primary or redundant control
  • One level alarm - either high or low
  • Manual (hand) operation from an external selector switch or keypad
  • Pump thermal protection - thermistor, thermal switch or Flygt FLS
  • Adjustable delays for pump start/stop and alarms
  • Failed Probe detection when used with new FailSafe Probe
  • Adjustable sensitivity for MultiTrode Probes
  • Parallel operation with MultiSmart

When used as a back-up with an override manual/off/auto switch, the controller also provides thermal protection in manual mode.

Safe-FS

The Safe-FS verifies that the high level alarm is always functioning and:

  • Adds failsafe test to the ultra-reliable Probe

  • Relays output for loss of Probe - N/O or N/C

  • Relays output for high level alarm - N/O or N/C

  • Indicates power, level alarm and loss of Probe alarms on LED
