Increasing the Efficiency of Information Management with Seamless Data Integration

Posted by Kari Grosser on Jul 15, 2017 10:30:00 AM

Since the 1960s, the manufacturing industry has used computers to control cost and production to optimize company resources and efficiency. The rapid development of information technology has resulted in the creating of a wide range of information systems, such as enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems, manufacturing execution systems (MESs) and digital systems for managing customers, supply chains, products, manufacturing processes and equipment. However, regardless of the type of system, data and statistical analysis provides the basis for operation. And although many companies have implemented digital management systems, rather unfortunately, they still rely on manual collection and entry for data acquisition.

WISE Remote Facility Monitoring Solution for a Wind Power Plant

Posted by Kari Grosser on May 22, 2017 10:35:00 AM

Introduction

In order to reduce the dependence on traditional coal-fired and nuclear power generation, governments around the world have been actively working on the development of renewable energy. Among the various renewable energy sources, the wind power is regarded as the most mature technology, and its cost of electricity is closets to traditional power generation, resulting in a booming wind power industry. Since wind power plants are often located in sparsely populated and remote areas, in addition to the three main components (tower, blade and generators), each wind turbine has to be equipped with Remote Terminal Unit (RTU) to be used as the human machine interface (HMI) for the on-site operation and to collect information for the managers in the central control room to remotely monitor all the devices on the wind farm.

A Robust Solution for Industrial Wastewater Monitoring System

Posted by Kari Grosser on Feb 7, 2017 10:15:00 AM

Project Introduction

Industrial wastewater is one of the key contamination sources in the pollution of water. With the rapid economic development, a huge amount of industrial wastewater has been discharged in to rivers, lakes and coastal areas during the last century and caused serious pollution and brought negative effects upon the eco-system and human life. This has resulted in many governments taking action to prevent, control and abated water pollution, thereby promoting the environmental monitoring industry to accelerate its transformations and upgrade. Compared to the accustomed method of examining wastewater discharge by manually sampling once every six months, there are more and more requirements for gathering real-time and long-term data so as to improve effectiveness of monitoring.

Tuna Farming Water Tank Monitoring and Control

Posted by Kari Grosser on Feb 4, 2017 10:00:00 AM

Project Introduction

As depleting oceanic fish stocks are forcing fish producers to move inland improving the quality of aquaculture systems using automation devices has become essential. To manage their farms, fish farmers use a variety of equipment such as air pumps, water filters, coolers, heaters, sunshades, heat insulation and ozone generation paraphernalia in the aquaculture farm to ensure the health of the fish. In order to ensure high quality production, the aquaculture manager not only has to understand the situations of multiple fish tanks, e.g. PH value, temperature, and CO2 levels of water, but also needs to control the various devices to keep the indoor temperature at a steady state. However, maintaining these conditions increases the complexity of aquaculture management.
