On the opening day of its flagship annual user conference, the AVEVA World Summit, AVEVA announced a technical partnership with AEGEX Technologies to deliver “LFM Netview” laser scan visualisation and “AVEVA NET” information management solutions on the AEGEX10 Intrinsically Safe Tablet.
Bringing together AVEVA’s portfolio of visualization and Information Management solutions with the AEGEX mobile platform helps enterprises operating in hazardous locations to better and more safely manage their people and assets.
“AVEVA has long been an advocate of the Digital Asset approach,” said Rick Standish, VP Solution Strategy, AVEVA. “At every decision point throughout your asset's life cycle, accurate, relevant information is essential. Our technical partnership with AEGEX will transform how field personnel in hazardous environments access high-integrity information and associated engineering data to maintain safety and improve efficiency.”
These mobile solutions are designed for the specific needs of owner operators to provide increased efficiency and information accuracy for brownfield capital project execution and asset operations in UL Class I Division 1and ATEX/IECEx Zone 1 environments, where combustible atmospheres require specially certified “intrinsically safe” devices that are designed to be incapable of causing a spark that could ignite an explosion.
“Deploying AVEVA solutions on AEGEX tablets in hazardous areas enables operators to perform inspections, maintenance and turnaround projects in real time,” said Thomas P. Ventulett, CEO, AEGEX Technologies. “This is an industry first that will help to improve productivity in oil and gas, energy and utilities, and other industrial operations with explosive hazardous locations.”
The AEGEX10 IS tablet is purpose-built for use in the most hazardous zones of potentially explosive environments. Incapable of igniting a spark, the AEGEX10 IS industrial device allows for superior mobile communications on dangerous job sites where traditional devices cannot be used. Globally certified to the highest standards of safety, ATEX/IECEx Zone 1 and UL913 Class I, II, III Division 1, the AEGEX tablet is part of a fully integrated platform that brings real-time communications, industry-specific applications and data management to the world’s most hazardous industries.
