Efficient inspections and maintenance activities are a challenge in hazardous area operations, where electronic devices that potentially could ignite combustible environments are prohibited. In industries with hazardous locations, such as oil and gas, technicians must record inspection data or log repair work details by hand with pen and paper in lieu of mobile devices. This work can become time-consuming and costly, especially if facilities must be shut down for computer-based inspections and maintenance to take place. The work of oil and gas inspectors and maintenance professionals could be greatly streamlined if they could capture inspection and asset data digitally and upload it directly to the cloud or back-office systems.
Mobile devices that are certified to operate in hazardous areas can run cloud-based data-capture and asset management applications that save time and money. Utilizing Arnlea’s IntrinsixEX on aegex10™ Intrinsically Safe Tablets helps streamline inspections and maintenance operations to increase uptime in oil and gas and other hazardous area operations. IntrinsixEX IntrinsixEX is an industrial mobile software application that optimizes data capture for greater efficiency in the inspection and maintenance of hazardous area equipment. Incorporating mobile auto-ID technology such as RFID tags, plus strategies including risk-based inspection (RBI) analysis, IntrinsixEX makes hazardous area inspections mobile and “intelligent,” thereby improving efficiency, reliability and asset life.
