May 2, 2017 – Thompson Pump’s new RECON2000T control panel with enhanced functions using interactive technology allows for remote pump control and monitoring, and reduces the time and labour needed on-site. The innovative control panel allows you to operate the pump and supervise performance from a smartphone, laptop, desktop computer or any other device with Internet access.
Thompson Pump debuted its new RECON control panel at the recent 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, Fla. being controlled by the panel. Convention attendees were amazed at how seamlessly the control panel worked and how the interactive technology allowed them to access data from a remote location.
“We’re thrilled with the response we’re getting from the RECON2000T,” said Bobby Zitzka, sales manager for Thompson Pump. “We launched this new panel to meet the changing needs of our customers. Thompson Pump works tirelessly to stay at the forefront of technology. This is another example of our commitment to be the industry’s best.”
The RECON2000T utilizes cellular and satellite networks for a secure and reliable connection in even the most remote locations, and also comes Wi-Fi ready. It gives operators informational access and control over the pump unit with the ability to remotely monitor the unit, record data and vary speed. The dashboard displays all the same pump and engine data as it appears on the RECON2000T control panel on-site. If there’s a problem with the pump or engine, the RECON2000T can even be setup to notify you on your Internet-activated device.
