Mobility for maintenance engineers

Schad, the mobile SCADA software company, (Stand E7) makes its UK debut at Maintec 2012. The company will be exhibiting EXTEND7000, a fully functional mobile SCADA application.

EXTEND7000 is an award-winning mobile SCADA system that allows engineers supporting ­automated systems within distribution centres, airports, manufacturing plants, utilities companies and any other automated environments controlled by PLCs to ­monitor, control and maintain multiple systems remotely, using any mobile device from any ­location.

James Hannay, SVP of sales and marketing at Schad, says: “The launch of EXTEND7000 offers organisations a huge opportunity to introduce mobility to a completely new area of the workforce – namely the highly skilled maintenance engineers responsible for managing automated systems monitored by SCADA and controlled by PLC technology.

Many companies already have a wireless infrastructure so it’s a logical transition to put this to greater use with mobile applications to reduce downtime.”
