A large petroleum refiner and supplier often uses several area monitors simultaneously across multiple sites within one location. With the area monitors serving different areas and functions within the refinery, it was important to prevent their signals from interfering with each other. The company’s previous area monitoring solution required different electronic channels for each site. Setting these channels meant workers had
to disassemble the area monitors, connect them to a laptop via a difficult-to-obtain proprietary cable, and reprogram the monitors. It was a slow and tedious process that wasted valuable time.
