Every day you use mobile technology, sometimes to book a flight, arrange for a cab ride, or check your bank account. How often do you use it to monitor your process and ensure operations are running smoothly? If you can’t currently use your smartphone or tablet to quickly and easily view your process data, you should consider Canary’s Axiom solution.
Many companies do not realize the advantages that historical process data can offer, helping them to save both time and money. Ed Stern, Vice President of Canary Labs, discusses his experience in the matter:
Since 1985, Canary Labs has been focused on reliably and quickly recording time series data into it's process data historian. Named after the canaries that were carried into coal mines by miners to detect toxic gases, Canary software assists engineers and control operators in finding conditions that are not easily detected; providing early warning and alarms that will help prevent minor issues from becoming major disasters.
I recently received an email from a potential system integrator customer that wanted to see how the Canary data historian and trending software would meet their client's needs. After addressing all concerns, I thought it would be worthwhile to share as it demonstrates how well the Canary system works in comparison to other products like Pi, GE, or Rockwell software.
Time and time again, companies who make an investment in the Canary data historian and trending software solutions see great returns on their investment. An independent oil and natural gas company made a $22,500 investment in the Canary data historian and Axiom trending and analytic software and saved over $250,000 through monitoring and improving the efficiency of their equipment.
Fabricated Oil Company (FOC), anonymity requested, uses Canary's process historian and trending analysis software solutions to collect, store, and monitor time series process data in fourteen of their data vans throughout various oil plays in the United States.
