Water Dispensing System (WDS) Controller

About Abberfield Industries

Abberfield is Australia's largest manufacturer of pay-per-use water vending machines. Their vending machines are designed to dispense potable, reclaimed or untreated water, with different pump types available depending on whether customers in a particular location require lower volumes for personal use, or larger volumes for commercial re-sale, such as for bulk water tanker supplying remote communities.

Their vending machines are primarily located in regional areas prone to drought and high temperatures. Depending on the location, a range of power and payment systems are available.

Project Summary

Due to these vending machines being located in remote areas, reliability is a primary consideration. Additionally, due to them being located outdoors, and frequently not under cover, reliable performance in extremes of temperature is a major requirement.

Amatek undertook a reliability redesign program for this product.


The project is ongoing.
