Moxa Demonstrates Easy Video Integration With SCADA and InduSoft at 2013 Offshore Technology Conference

May 8, 2013
Moxa will mark its presence at the 2013 Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) by demonstrating easy integration of IP video and Ethernet I/O into the mission-critical SCADA systems used by the oil and gas industry for data collection and real-time operations management.

Moxa will mark its presence at the 2013 Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) by demonstrating easy integration of IP video and Ethernet I/O into the mission-critical SCADA systems used by the oil and gas industry for data collection and real-time operations management.

"SCADA has changed dramatically over the last few years, and today's offshore oil fields want more than basic functionality; they're looking for something that will contribute to the bottom line," said Steve Frank, Business Development Manager for Data Acquisition and Control at Moxa. "Technology from Moxa and InduSoft makes it easy to build smarter SCADA systems that bring richer, more timely data to operators over a greater variety of platforms, including web and mobile."

Moxa's live demonstration shows remote video triggered by sensor and viewable from within InduSoft's WebStudio SCADA software. Typically, live video is difficult to integrate into SCADA and is monitored on a separate video management system. By making it easy to integrate live video into SCADA, the Moxa+InduSoft solution makes far more information immediately accessible to operators for an unprecedented level of situational awareness.
 
"Both Moxa and InduSoft have an open-platform approach that maximizes interoperability and minimizes vendor lock-in," according to Bruce Howenstine, Business Development Manager at InduSoft. "We make it very easy and cost-effective for customers to consolidate the collection of their monitoring data and share it as needed throughout the organization."
 
The Offshore Technology Conference will be held in Houston's Reliant Park from May 6 to 9, 2013. Attendees can visit Moxa at booth 11800. Conference details can be found at www.otcnet.org.
 
Moxa's network equipment complies with industrial standards such as Class 1 Division 2 that certify their ability to operate in an offshore environment that features extreme temperatures, damaging corrosion, and heavy vibration. Rugged and robust Moxa solutions have become the infrastructure of choice in offshore oil and gas applications due to sturdy industrial design, advances in security protection, and dual-radio technology that optimizes bandwidth and redundancy.
