Development of A Custom Display Builder for Configuring Oil & Gas Field Assets
A global OEM serving discrete and process industries with a line of automation and control solutions. The client has a range of flow computers, especially for Oil and Gas market. To customize the flow computers in line with the varied applications, the flow computers needed to be configured in multiple unique ways. However, the cost of enhancing/upgrading the configuration application in-house was costing them a significant OpEx. Check out this case study to understand how a Windows-based custom display builder application helped the client customize the displays with greater flexibility and reduced complexities.
Configuration Tool for IO-Link Master Modules To Increase Productivity
A Japanese electrical and electronics OEM manufactures factory automation solutions for various industrial clients. The client had a line of IO-link systems that required manual intervention for configuring, commissioning, and maintaining the IO Link devices. This consumed a considerable amount of time and required huge operational expenses. Check out this case study to know how a Windows-based configuration tool built upon Utthunga’s IO-Link Master Stack helped reduce the device maintenance time by 40%.
Asset Management Solution for A US-Based Process Control Giant
A US-based heavy electricals OEM was using gateway access points to remotely monitor the health of its assets. The client lacked a common platform to visualize and analyze the field data. Due to this, a holistic monitoring of field equipment and predicting impending failure was not possible. Give this case study a read to know how an Asset Management Solution from Utthunga helped automate and improve the asset management process for this client.
Migrating Multiple Legacy Monolithic Applications to A Single Cloud Application
A leading industrial OEM was maintaining legacy monolithic applications with stand-alone databases for independent plant functions. As a result, accessing cross-application data was not streamlined, hence posing difficulties in analyzing overall enterprise performance. The un-scalability of the monolithic applications and the pain to maintain separate databases lead to high OpEx. Check out how Utthunga migrated the legacy architecture to a microservices based scalable solution with a single unified database.
Asset Health Monitoring Using FDT IIoT Server – FITS™ & OPC Pub-Sub
An oil and gas supermajor was struggling to access diagnostic data from a huge number of field devices deployed across multiple distributed plants. With older version of FDT on client-server architecture, exposing the field information was challenging. Furthermore, the existing architecture was unable to cope with the load of increasing number of field devices at each site leading to inferior performance. Read how FITS™ with OPC Pub-Sub from Utthunga helped the client achieve easier field data access and significant performance improvement.
Seamless and secure data tunneling between systems in a leading oil refinery
The client is a global oil refinery and faced regular downtime during system upgrades of their OPC Classic based applications running on the deprecated COM/DCOM technology. They required a solution to bypass the troublesome DCOM settings for effective communication of operational data across different networks. Check out our case study on how they avoided rip-and-replace of their classic OPC systems thus enabling substantial cost saving, while future proofing their systems to improve productivity.
Developing Calibration and Configuration Functionality for a Renowned Test Equipment OEM
The client has a huge product portfolio of handhelds for configuration and calibration of industrial field devices such as flow meters, gauges, actuators etc. Inherent in the big product basket was the issue of function specific and protocol specific products. A major challenge that the service personnel of the client’s end customers were facing was that they had to carry a multiple handhelds.
Upgrading Test Management Software for Handheld Testers
The client is a global leader in certification, troubleshooting, and installation tools to maintain critical network cabling infrastructure. As a subsidiary of a larger test and measurement company, the client is known globally for its expertise in helping troubleshoot complex network errors. The client sells various handheld network and cable tester products capable of running various tests and then save the results in the handheld.
PCB design for Japanese valve manufacturer
The client had the challenge of their device’s PCB design not meeting the HART Standards & specifications. They had concerns with managing inventory as they had multiple board assembly for their product. They wanted their control valve products to comply with the intrinsic safety design requirements needed to operate in the hazardous areas of the oil and gas rigs both offshore and onshore. The devices should also work with low voltage input.
PROFINET network diagnostics in warehouse of a leading e-commerce company
The client uses SINAMICS family of drives in few of their warehouses for controlling the conveyors systems in the distribution lines. These conveyor systems distribute the products to the various delivery vehicles. The client faced intermittent communication issues in their SINAMICS drives on the PROFINET network, which affected their continuous work.
