Control Dynamics uses IntelliMax for offshore control systems

Houston, Texas - 11 March 2008 - Control Dynamics will embed the IntelliMAX real-time data management platform in offshore industrial automation systems. CDI is a leading supplier of industrial automation systems for the energy industry, and SENSYS develops and markets advanced software solutions for real-time data management. The initial application of the IntelliMAX product by CDI will be the control system for a hydraulic workover unit being designed and built by CDI for a major offshore production facility in the Gulf of Mexico.

"We selected IntelliMAX by SENSYS because of its advanced technology over other human-machine interfaces," says Van Wilson, President of CDI. "IntelliMAX has clearly been designed for high performance and integrity, something our oil and gas clients require. IntelliMAX comes bundled with a complete set of OPC-based interfaces, which can be readily used without additional development. The scalability of the product was also a factor in our decision as our clients require systems that can be easily expanded as needed over time."

"While IntelliMAX is already in use in both upstream and downstream applications, the advanced, turn-key solutions from CDI provide IntelliMAX with new market opportunities," says Sohail Qadir, President of SENSYS. "Our partnership with CDI offers our customers an option to obtain system integration and consulting services to ensure the success of their projects. We are quite pleased to have CDI as a value-added reseller of IntelliMAX."
