Houston – (Apr. 23, 2018) – Aegex Technologies will demonstrate its IoT Solution for the offshore and maritime industries during the 2018 Offshore Technology Conference (OTC), taking place April 30 – May 3, 2018 at NRG Park in Houston, Texas.

Aegex is exhibiting in booth #4438 with Norway’s FutureOn, developer of the online collaboration solution, FieldAP. The digital field software allows offshore managers to visualize and collaborate on offshore and subsea field development using a digital twin of the field in operation.

Visitors to the booth may participate in live, interactive demonstrations of the Aegex IoT Solution for offshore, which includes Aegex IoT Sensor Modules detecting various ambient conditions and displaying real-time data on aegex10TM Intrinsically Safe Tablets.

“FutureOn is proud to work with Aegex to place our smart digital field solutions directly into the hands of offshore personnel using Aegex’s intrinsically safe tablets,” said Darrell Knight, EVP of Global Accounts for FutureOn. “With FieldAP and operational extensions, Aegex’s customers will see more possibilities for their assets and begin to make more forward-thinking choices from every possible vantage point, enabling them to make timely and meaningful decisions through visual data collaboration.”

The demonstration with FutureOn will show how Aegex’s IoT sensor data can be combined with Aegex tablets’ digital form data and fed into FutureOn’s cloud services, for real-time logistics and operational awareness in maritime operations, including ship loading and unloading.

The aegex10TM tablet permits offshore operators to bring FieldAP, and other industrial or business applications of choice, directly into C1D1 or Zone 1 hazardous locations where non-certified mobile devices are not permitted. Field personnel in offshore and maritime operations can view data in real time using FieldAP on Aegex tablets. They can also use the tablets to:

  • Complete digital forms and access manuals or other digital information;
  • Use email, Skype or other business applications;
  • Capture photo/video;
  • Access process automation systems and ERP systems; and
  • Visualize Aegex IoT Sensor Modules.
Aegex IoT Modules include customizable combinations of sensors that allow organizations to choose which conditions they want to monitor. Data collected by the smart modules can be accessed in real time in hazardous locations on aegex10TM tablets, so personnel can immediately analyze and act on it.

In maritime operations, Aegex IoT Modules can provide real-time inputs and predictive analytics of potential failure points in the loading, mooring and offloading of vessels, in order to better optimize maritime logistics.
