The Internet of Things is becoming more than just a buzz word.
In 2017, it was estimated 8.4 billion devices were connected and by 2020 it is estimated over 20 billion devices. Having the ability to collect data, monitor devices, trend, learn and predict how your facilities are going to act in different situations can provide advantages in operating your business that you could not have imagined. For example, being able to see in real time how your facility is operating, your current inventory levels, current cost of inputs and up to the minute profitability based on current commodity prices. All on a dashboard accessible with any connected device.
Imagine a system that will alert you to changes in weather patterns that affects your facility and allow you to make predictive adjustments automatically or manually. Have a critical valve or motor in your facility that causes you problems? Our systems can monitor when the motor or valve needs maintenance and provide you the ability to perform maintenance when needed, not before or when it is too late. This is our predictive maintenance program. Gone are the days of preventative maintenance that costs unnecessary downtime and money.
If you have an area in your business that is causing you issues, we can help.
Have an oil field that is running close to break even? Our system will automatically shut down systems when they become unprofitable and start them when they are profitable again. Our system will monitor the cost of electricity in your area and compare it to the price of oil, determining based on pre-programmed parameters if the system should be running or not.
In today’s world, automation can mean so many things. Our focus is making your facility more efficient. We can help you with your existing PLC, DCS, SCADA, Historian, HMI, as well as any other control systems. We can connect your current control system to our IoT systems to give you data analysis and control that you may not even know exists.
Our goal is to give you an edge, as well as increase your company’s efficiencies. With the current cost of oil and gas, being more efficient can mean the difference between success and failure.
Let Frontline Automation and IoT take the mystery out of “The Cloud”. In the past, security has always been the topic of discussion when migrating your systems to the cloud. We can show you how our secure protocols can keep your data safe. Having your data stored on our cloud means it will be backed up in multiple locations, highly available and ready when you need it.
Your server costs can be vastly reduced, and your data is more secure.
Data Collection and Analysis
Allow your data to be collected, trended and analyzed. We can provide insights to your data that can help you make real time business decisions with real time information, not your typical month-old information.
Our systems can tell you when to ramp up or slow down production or when to order new inventory.
Predictive Analytics uses a technology where we monitor the activity of your device and determine when it needs to be maintained. Routine maintenance is a thing of the past, shutting down production to perform preventative maintenance when it is not needed. Lost production and wasted maintenance costs can drastically impact profitability.
Predictive analytics can also be used to adjust facility settings to always stay at peak performance and optimization. We can lower levels in storm ponds when the weather predicts rain. We can also use this technology to analyze trends in your data to look for patterns, which can then be exploited for your company’s benefit.
We provide the ability to manage your business more effectively.
