Honeywell’s solution is designed to improve safety, efficiency and productivity through control, optimization and monitoring of product blending, movements and inventories in refineries, tank farms and terminals.
VEGA Americas and SignalFire Wireless Telemetry have teamed up to couple VEGAPULS69 radar level instruments with a SignalFire Remote Sensing System (SFRSS) to provide a wireless remote monitoring and control solution to track flour usage.
NGCP is responsible for delivering safe and reliable power to customers in the Philippines over more than 21,000 circuit kilometers of transmission lines. Cost, resource and energy optimization pressure drove NGCP to invest further in their Schneider Electric solution
Teel Plastics was inspired to find a solution that would allow operators to control all pieces electronically and reduce human error. They ultimately found that Kepware’s IoT Gateway for KEPServerEX provided the way to control all the essential components.
Stacks, chimneys and other gas handling equipment can take all sorts of forms depending on the application, but a common element is the need for effective temperature measurement of the gas at various points in chimneys.
With so many variables, including furnace pressure, air-to-fuel ratio and controller stability, Anchor Glass knew it needed a new control system to better manage furnace operations. To help design the new system, Anchor Glass turned to Stone Technologies, a Rockwell Automation Solution Partner and member of the Rockwell Automation PartnerNetwork program.
The project aimed to test the feasibility of developing an integrated data platform for Chester city centre. The focus was on linking a novel air quality network of low cost wireless sensors with the traffic management within the city centre to alleviate air pollution ‘hot spots’ caused by queuing traffic.
ABB Drives and Controls was lacking a component information management system with a centralized database for their Printed Circuit Board Assembly (PCBA) components and the mechanical parts that included PCBAs. They selected Omnify Empower PLM
The Bedrock controller is part of an integrated plantwide SCADA system. Users connect to that system via Ignition software from Inductive Automation. Ignition is an industrial applications platform that coordinates control and data acquisition for all plant PLCs and remote transfer units (RTUs).
For supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) in its vegetable oil and grain plants, Adams uses Ignition by Inductive Automation. Ignition is an industrial applications platform with fully integrated tools for building SCADA, manufacturing execution system (MES), and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solutions.
For more than a decade, the company’s 305,000-square-foot production facility in Hammond, Wisconsin, had been experiencing voltage sags several times per year that disrupted its largest production line. To get a better grip on the voltage-sag problem, Loparex installed the Allen-Bradley i-Sense and i-Grid intelligent network system from Rockwell Automation on its largest coating line.
HighJump’s cloud solution is designed to simplify each step of the supply chain while assuring levels of service through system uptime, response time and security.
GKN, a manufacturer of automotive driveline products, was seeking an end-to-end traceability strategy and discovered the Argonaut system from RedViking
The European Southern Observatory based in Garching, Germany, is relying on displacement measurement systems from Micro-Epsilon for a project to build the world’s largest mirror telescope in Chile, which also involves French cooperation partner Fogale. The inductive sensor systems used for displacement measurement determine the position of each single mirror segment in three axes to nanometer accuracy.
