RECON2000T REMOTE FEATURES
The RECON2000T comes with a telemetry add-on that offers enhanced functions using smart technology and can eliminate the need for on-site pump monitoring. Engine and pump data are collected and transmitted to a password protected website for viewing and reporting. The RECON2000T utilizes cellular and satellite networks for a secure and reliable connection in even the most remote locations. It gives operators informational access and control over the pump unit with the ability to start, stop, record data and vary speed from a remote location. The enabled website displays the information in the same familiar format, exactly as it appears on the RECON2000T control panel at the jobsite.
Thompson Pump debuted its new RECON control panel at the 2017 CONEXPO-Con/AGG in Las Vegas with daily live demos showcasing the new technology, which included a live video feed of a Thompson pump thousands of miles away in Port Orange, Florida, being controlled by the panel.
