The automation system includes Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) and Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) motor controls as required, as well as sensors and signaling devices, air valve actuators, HMI operator touch-panels, UL listed enclosed industrial control panel, and a secure internet router.

Standard features include: individual component monitoring, embedded input data configuration, Ethernet IP communication, text notification, remote access function, total run-time monitoring and I/O. The automation system is specifically developed for each installation. Its configuration commonly requires a P&ID which is developed during the project design & engineering stage.

Trident automation packages are available for the Nutrient Recovery and Bedding Recovery System, as well as standalone equipment.
