Sigtec Releases Case Study on Mobilising Process Information in Biochemical Plant

In this case study Sigtec and TQS demonstrate how the integration of process information in a modern biochemical facility can provide the ability to manage and mobilise the facility's alarm handling functions in a central location, and then to alter crucial staff through the use of Infostream X5-i digital pagers combined with Tetra portable radios.  Originally the digital Tetra radios were expected to be the primary notification tool, with paging as a secondary system. However in the two years since the commissioning of the system the paging direct to Infostream digital pagers is now the primary messaging platform for the entire plant. 


A schematic of the system is shown in the diagram below:
