IIoT to Mine Your Data Increases Underground Uptime and Safety

Posted by Amy Thibault on Jul 11, 2023 11:15:00 AM


One of the most exciting uses for cloud software, IIoT and automaton technology has been in the mining industry. In recent years the health and safety numbers for mining have greatly improved—and so have costs and efficiencies—by handing machines the dirtiest and most energy-intensive jobs. Mining companies and human health factors have both benefitted greatly.

The challenge, however, is that the machines also have health requirements. With few humans around to watch and listen, how does a mining company keep those big machines getting ores—and profits- to the surface?

Preventative maintenance for machines timed right

Posted by Amy Thibault on Jun 27, 2023 12:40:40 PM


Emerson Machine Health Monitoring helps right-time your preventive maintenance program and increase it's effectiveness

You've probably heard awesome stories of how truly great things can happen to people out of the blue; love when you least expect it, strangers paying for your coffee... The list goes on and on forever about how small, unexpected people and the actions they sometimes take can bring us light, love and unmeasurable positive impact to our lives.

Machines however, are not out to sweep us off our feet, cheer us up, or have any desire to pass along some sunny moments into our lives. No, they're famous for breaking down when we need them the MOST. Sometimes, it almost feels like maybe they even conspire together and to all have different (and very time consuming) breakdowns all within days, even hours of each other to cause total havoc on our work, and lives. The surprises machines can deliver don't exactly give anyone the warm fuzzies.

Get ahead of water infrastructure issues

Posted by Amy Thibault on May 10, 2022 11:42:00 AM



Towns and cities everywhere are increasingly challenged with issues of replacing water pipes, pumps and other infrastructure—sometimes after a huge failure. If a pump station unexpectedly stops, hundreds or even thousands of citizens may be without water for an extended period of time. Or if the quality of the incoming water changes, improper treatment may be injected, creating a number of possible dangers for citizens. Water management challenges are vast and only continue to amplify.

More and more utilities are finding the benefit of managing these pump and treatment stations with scalable, cloud-based systems like Emerson’s Zedi SaaS SCADA platform. Instead of the old, costly system of relying on drive-bys to check on pumps and facilities, our scalable, cloud platform can give managers peace of mind while reducing those costs all while keeping everyone's water safer.

Why centralizing data in the cloud matters

Posted by Amy Thibault on Mar 1, 2022 11:15:00 AM





If your company isn't centralizing its data you may be missing out on increasing productivity in your business.


Centralizing data means putting all your operational data into one single place. By consolidating data, your authorized company employees will have quick and easy access from anywhere. All that will be required is a secure internet connection.


Our SaaS (Software as a Service) and SCADA helps your operations compile data from any digital monitoring hardware via gateways that support various protocols into a single centralized cloud location. From a single source, we can deliver real-time data to your computer or mobile device that allows authorized end-users to actively see the information you decide is relevant to each person or role within your organization.

Alarms can be used to monitor data for anything out of the ordinary, like catching smalls deviations and alerting an operator to a possible situation before it escalates. Setting up alarms on your assets enables you to prevent physical and economic loss through faster operator intervention and response times.

How many alarms can an operator effectively handle per day? ISA 18.2 states that, ideally, one alarm per 10 minutes can be taken care of without sacrifice to the operator’s other duties. Two alarms per 10 minutes are identified as manageable.

Manage by exception saves thousands of hours yearly

Posted by Amy Thibault on Jan 17, 2022 3:40:39 PM


It's no secret that skilled internal resources are becoming more and more difficult to find, and keep. The first step on the road to creating more value from your current internal resources is to automate as much as possible so those skilled people can focus on more important tasks.

Starting the journey to autonomous operations or even the first step of starting to automate at all, is usually installing a SCADA system with a deep sensor reach, giving you extensive data on all the important points. That’s followed by creating a communications interface that sends the data to your office in real time.

DeltaV™ SaaS SCADA Alarm Experts are (almost) magic

Posted by Community Contributor on Jun 12, 2019 12:03:00 PM


There is a bit of magic in every childhood story we read. Whether it be the Chronicles of Narnia with its enchanted kingdom or Aladdin’s genie in the lamp, we learn very early that supernatural powers often come in pretty handy.

Maybe you could use some telepathic powers to know what is happening in a remote production location. You’ve probably wished to have psychic abilities to know when a wellsite will stop producing before it happens, or if your team is safe working on site.

Most certainly you’d enjoy the gift of telekinesis to restart an artificial lift.
