Control Dynamics International (CDI) and Sensys are to embed the IntelliMax real-time data management platform in offshore industrial automation systems. CDI supplies such systems to the energy industry while Sensys develops software for real-time data management. The initial application of the joint venture will be the control system for a hydraulic workover unit being designed and built by CDI for a major offshore production facility in the Gulf of Mexico.
CDI president Van Wilson said, ‘We selected IntelliMax over other human-machine interfaces for its high performance and integrity, something our oil and gas clients require. IntelliMax comes bundled with a complete set of OPC-based interfaces, which can be readily used without additional development. The scalability of the product was also a factor in our decision as our clients require systems that can be easily expanded as needed over time.’
Sohail Qadir, president of Sensys added, ‘IntelliMax is already in use in both upstream and downstream applications. Our partnership with CDI adds a system integration and consulting offering.’
In a separate announcement, CDI has partnered with Weidmuller to offer its connectivity and switching solutions to the US energy market.
