Posted by Jean Femia on Apr 27, 2016, 5:01:13 PM

Vista Irrigation District pumpsFrom 1923 to the present, Vista Irrigation District has successfully battled THE two big Southern California issues: increasing population and drought. 

Transporting over 5 billion gallons of water each year, the district has hundreds of miles of pipeline and more than 30 remote sites. 

In this new case study you'll see how the water district and system integrator IDAC West upgraded technology from a legacy serial-based SCADA system to an Ethernet-based system today.

Key factors for the upgrade were using distributed intelligence for far-flung installations and taking advantage of built-in networking capabilities to reduce costs.
