Connecting devices across a site can be a costly prospect. It can also significantly impact how the equipment on a site can be monitored. Although this has been the method of choice for most organisations for many years, it’s costly. It also has many disadvantages that are hard to overlook, like its lack of mobility, risk of damage and scalability. It's always important to consider the benefits and possible drawbacks when considering new technology for your business. Given the issues with wired connections, a point to point system is becoming the go-to choice for organisations looking to eliminate the need ...

The evolution of valve monitoring

2021-07-20T14:15:15+10:00July 20th, 2021|News|

Unplanned shutdowns in worksites are often attributed to worn out equipment that is poorly maintained. In most cases, the valves have exceeded their lifespan, causing them to stop functioning at times, causing false alarms. While technology is available for valve monitoring, many companies are not keen on investing in it because of the prohibitive costs of trenching and hardwiring all of the appropriate equipment. As a result, many companies are risking safety and security to save some money. Marchwood Integrated recognised this gap in the market, so they developed the Wireless FM3010 approved system to connect with any FM approved ...

Why your data centre needs remote asset monitoring

2020-11-04T16:38:17+11:00November 4th, 2020|News|

The ability to conduct off-site monitoring of data centres has become ever-more critical given social distancing measures as a result of COVID-19.  Protecting data centres has never been more important at a time when digital infrastructure is the engine room of many businesses. There is no doubt, too, that the COVID-19 pandemic has prompted management teams to rethink how they safeguard such systems. With a greater reliance on people working from home and social distancing limiting the contact between employees and contractors, old ways of dispatching teams to manage data centres are not always practicable. This is especially true in ...

Switching to digital fire monitoring of industrial, commercial and emergency services assets makes sense during the pandemic as facility managers, contractors and consultants seek to minimise costs and limit the need for health-endangering physical inspections of critical assets. No business or service can afford to lower its safety standards because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Whether it is an industrial, manufacturing or petrochemical site, a data centre or some other type of commercial or emergency services operation, the focus has to be on protecting people and assets. There is pressure, nevertheless, on facility managers and other leaders in the business and ...

How digital monitoring slashed project costs

 USA-based steel plant wished to monitor 12 points in a hostile environment within their facility. The original budget for this project was set at USD$400,000. The cable costs alone over ran this budget without the inclusion of any installation or equipment costs. By implementing digital monitoring, only 75% of the planned budget was required and allowed the field device coverage to be increased from the original 12 to 36 devices. Delta Integrated Systems is a division of Delta Fire Australasia, which specialises in the installation and servicing of fire-suppression solutions to commercial and industrial sites.

Digital monitoring is all the rage – but what is it exactly?
