Motorola, Apprion, Industrial Mobility team on wireless

ION wireless network connects MobilOps field mobility solution on Motorola ruggedized systems.

Huntsman Corp. has deployed what is described as ‘one of the world’s largest industrial wireless networks’ at its Port Neches, Texas petrochemicals facility. The network supports Huntsman’s ‘Project Zero’ effort to eliminate injuries, product defects and environmental releases. Project Zero mandated a complete mobile solution to empower operations and maintenance personnel to capture defects, track work progress and to take process and safety related decisions in real-time.

Apprion, Industrial Mobility and Motorola’s Enterprise Mobility Solutions unit provided the solution. Industrial Mobility contributed its ‘MobilOps’ field mobility software for field operations. This lets operators perform electronic ‘smart’ rounds and checklists and capture work requests in the field. MobilOps runs on Motorola’s MC9090 rugged mobile computer. Apprion’s ION system provides connectivity throughout the four square mile plant. The network supports video, voice communications, energy efficiency and condition monitoring. A centralized dashboard brings together application data, regional maps equipment status and maintenance views and reports. More from
