Aegex to Demo Joint Solution at Offshore Europe 2019
Aberdeen, UK (August 27, 2019) – Aegex Technologies has enabled their NexVu intrinsically safe, wireless, IIoT sensors to communicate directly with the OSIsoft PI System™.
The PI System is used by industrial customers worldwide to connect people, sensors and systems to optimize their critical operations. Integrating real-time data collected by NexVu intrinsically safe IoT sensors in hazardous areas allows safe viewing of the data in PI Vision™ on aegex10 Intrinsically Safe Tablets anywhere in an offshore operation, providing actionable insights that help improve processes.
Aegex will demonstrate the joint solution at Stand 1AB53 during the upcoming Offshore Europe 2019 exhibition, 3–6 September, in Aberdeen, UK. Aegex will be taking orders for the NexVu Developers Kit during the event. The NexVu Dev Kit is for demonstration and testing purposes only.
“The value of the integration between NexVu and the PI System is that the customer can easily visualize and analyze ambient air and gas alongside the process data that is also in the PI System. This enables solutions that can provide improved process and worker safety and information for first responders, through automated reporting, real-time incident management and prediction & prevention of reportable incidents,” said John Marriott, Partner Manager at OSIsoft.
“With 80% of the world’s largest oil and gas companies using the PI System to manage their operations, our ability to drive real-time data to the system via NexVu could have a significant impact on safety, efficiency and productivity in the industry,” added Aegex CEO Thomas P. Ventulett.
The PI System collects, archives, visualizes and analyzes large amounts of high-fidelity, time-series data from NexVu IoT sensors and other sources to share among teams. Sharing the right data with the right people at the right time results in a common operating picture that can help companies reduce costs, extend equipment life, increase production capacity and realize other benefits.
NexVu is an intrinsically safe certified modular sensing array that collects real-time data to feed into the PI System or other cloud-based analytics platform. Organizations may select from more than 40 sensor nodes to mix and match in thousands of combinations to monitor their conditions of choice. Battery-powered and Wi-Fi or LTE-operated, NexVu is a versatile means of collecting the best data possible surrounding offshore or other hazardous operations.
Aegex10 Intrinsically Safe Tablets are industrial Windows tablets certified for ATEX/IECEx Zone 1 and Class I, II, III Division 1 hazardous locations. Safe and convenient to use in any environment, the tablets provide access to myriad applications for personnel working in offshore oil and gas or other hazardous industries.
