Remote locations and devices at industrial facilities contain critical operational and equipment status data. Monitoring these locations and devices is essential for efficient, safe and secure operations. An automated, wireless remote monitoring and management process enables plant personnel safely gather core operational data from a safe location, minimizing field travel time, operational costs and drastically improving personnel safety and operational efficiency.
The ION Remote Operations Solution includes the ION Condition Monitoring Application, the ION Workforce Mobility Application and the ION Video Monitoring Application. Remote monitoring encompasses many locations, devices and equipment.
- Wireless condition monitoring provides real-time condition metrics for tanks, compressors and emissions sensors
- Workforce mobility enables mobile workers with fast, easy, safe access to information on stranded PLCs and remote pumping stations
- Wireless video monitoring provides control operators a constant video streams of remote locations that would otherwise not be monitored because of distance and hazardous environments.
Those facilities with automated remote operations via a wireless network aquire numerous benefits: improved plant safety, security and operational efficiency and over 60% cost reduction versus wired, manual operations.
