Brillux has worked with SCHAD to implement EXTEND7000 as a mobile SCADA system to give engineers 'anywhere-anytime' alerts. Engineers can receive real-time notifications of system performance issues if a problem occurs within the company's primary distribution centre. In addition, they are able to gain remote access to automated control systems to investigate system performance issues, using a standard BlackBerry smartphone.

[Cost Reduction - Operation]
The system uses existing Wi-Fi or GPRS infrastructure thereby providing a low cost, functionally rich mobile control and monitoring solution.
[Efficiency Improvement - Operation]
Problems are indicated to line operators when the condition of a device or associated equipment changes beyond predetermined limits.
[Efficiency Improvement - Issue Response]
The SCHAD software thus enables Brillux to dramatically reduce response times after failure.
EXTEND7000 has helped Brillux shorten reaction times and to reduce unscheduled downtime of conveyor systems by 28%.
