Rest assured your site is secure.
XiO Protects Your Lift Station from Malware
Monitoring & Alarms
Operators gain peace of mind by effortlessly monitoring multiple stations from any web-enabled device. An extensive suite of alarms and comprehensive monitoring steers you toward problems as they arise. Take your night and weekends back with the elimination of false alarms. Take comfort in constant, real-time contact with your lift stations, no matter where you are.
Our monitoring, alarms, and graphed trends can save you valuable time.
Control Feedback Loop
XiO systems come with an integrated, cloud-hosted software engine that powers advanced peripheral control. Calculations assess changes in levels and pressures to produce accurate, real-time estimates of flow through the system. This information can be fed back into the cloud control algorithm to automatically adjust operations based on the changing conditions like rain, pump failures and line breaks.
Our patent changed SCADA communication for better control and security.
Data Analytics Suite
Data drives timely, targeted action. While graphs and trendlines display for all customers, the analytics suite transforms raw data into useful information. Avoid expensive EPA fines and untimely hardware replacements. Gain insight into performance inefficiencies (e.g., ragging), inflow and infiltration (I&I), and leaks. With XiO, you know where to focus your efforts.
Driving work efficiency with actionable insights.

XiO Lift Station Hardware
Say goodbye to the constant hassle of upgrading hardware and software.
XiO Cloud SCADA® Control Systems are built, above all, for reliability, ease of installation, and expandability. XiO engineers preconfigure your system to your specifications so that our products work right out of the box. Any licensed electrician can install them. It’s, also, painless to add new sites, features, and components at any time.
To extend the reach of your system or to add sites, additional FIUs integrate with your existing user interface and network as soon as they are connected. Operators can now manage stand-alone or interconnected systems in one place. XiO expandability delivers positive long term ROI while maintaining robust reliability and simplicity.
The Cloud & Soft I/O
The lifetime-guaranteed Field Installable Unit (FIU) replaces traditional, onsite Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs). Transitioning to the cloud servers means you can now shed expensive hardware and maintenance costs for good. The Soft-I/O® Module provides reliable supervisory control and real-time data collection for a fraction of the price.
Our compact 12”x14” boxes consolidate all the hardware you usually wrangle and maintain. Now, you no longer need physical servers, PCs, PLCs, and RTUs. NEMA 4X enclosures house each FIU, so you know it’s suitable for harsh environments throughout the collection system.
XiO FIUs reduce the cost of expensive installation, calibration, and programming. You receive preconfigured, clearly labeled terminal blocks tailor-made to your specifications. Any licensed electrician knows precisely where to “land the wires.”

Do a better job with less work
When your pumps are healthy and efficient, you save on electricity, parts, and labor. Our software combines electrical energy usage with flow data to discover if your pumps are running at optimum efficiency by.
Monitoring energy consumption, pump cycles, and efficiency in real-time helps you avert catastrophic spills by alerting on the early warning signs of an impending failure. XiO alarms as soon as it senses symptoms of more significant problems, such as pump ragging.
Traditional floats, if not broken or cracked, only tell you if the wet well level is high or low. The XiO submersible sensor shows the exact liquid level in your wet well and how quickly it is rising. This precision enables operators to make more informed decisions.
Monitoring flow meters provide real-time flow data. The Virtual Water Meter™ reports an accurate estimate of flow through your system when a physical meter is not present. Gaining insights into your system’s typical flow rates allows operators to identify I&I and other abnormalities.

XiO Lift Station Data Security
Protecting Your Data is Our Highest Priority
XiO uses physical, procedural, and technical safeguards to maintain the integrity and security of your lift station information. XiO mirrors all data received in real-time over multiple geographically distributed servers for redundancy regions, which means that even if a primary server fails, the data immediately restores. Mirroring and daily backups prevent data loss and ensure timely recovery. Our team regularly test the system so that the Disaster Recovery Time and the Disaster Recovery Objective stay low.
Always Have the Data You Need
XiO hosts data in the most reliable certified data centers available. We comprehensively and religiously reviews access logs and applies regular software updates. Our Cloud SCADA technology protects your data with restrictive firewalls, secure certificates, and access rules. Third-party security experts consult us in continuously improve our practices, so you get the best security today, tomorrow and for decades to come.
New & Matchless Cloud SCADA® Architecture
Our architecture flips the old SCADA “master-slave communication model,” safeguarding your data and making our control and alarm capabilities matchless. This node-to-server communication path with encrypted handshakes reduces the risk of man-in-the-middle attacks, a common threat to traditional SCADA architecture. Your data is private.
XiO Lift Station Monitoring & Alarms
Grab the Freedom to Work from Wherever the Day Takes You
XiO provides accurate alerts and real-time trend views of your system data. In addition to having unbroken access to historical data, you may remotely monitor your system(s) and receive alarms anywhere on any web-enabled device. XiO Control Systems push notifications through email or SMS to any number of recipients.
View your wet well levels, pump status, float status, and flow rate. If you don’t have a flow meter, we can provide a virtual one! Comparing past and present data from one or more lift stations highlights inconsistencies or sub-optimal performance.
Advanced & Accurate Alarms
Our advanced alarms communicate potentially serious situations. For example, when a traditional float switch “trips,” you only know if your liquid level is too high or too low. Wet well levels that are rapidly rising indicate an imminent spill. Conversely, pumps that continue to run when wet wells are empty could fail, leaving you with a pricey replacement. XiO quickly displays exact liquid levels and pump status so you can promptly address the situation.
Correlation Alarms™ compare multiple points throughout the system to evaluate alarm conditions. For example, an alarm indicates that a pump failed to start if a pump contactor closes, but the pump does not draw electrical current.
If power is lost, the uninterruptible power supply (UPS) keeps the unit running long enough to report the outage and lift station status. This continuity allows you to determine the urgency and deploy your workforce appropriately.
XiO alarms are sent from the cloud servers, not from the field units directly. Even if the field hardware is damaged (e.g., natural disaster), operators still receive alarms notifying them of a problem. Without XiO Cloud-based SCADA, who knows what could unfold in the substantial time it might take to discover that you haven’t been receiving updates and alarms. Let’s not find out.
XiO Lift Station Control
Solutions that only monitor lift stations can only tell you if the pump is on or off, but XiO systems know if your pump should be on or off. Closing the control feedback loop enables more intelligent and useful alarms and notifications, thereby providing additional insight to the user.
Adjusting controls based on analog level signals allows you to fine-tune lift station operation, on the fly based on your preferences. This flexibility enables operators to have more control over their lift stations.
Automated dosing, timed pumping, and multi-site coordination can improve the overall effectiveness of the collection system. This functionality can reduce your maintenance burdens and extend the life of the system.
