Control Systems in Brazil
SÃO PAULO -- December 06, 2012
Cinterion, Gemalto’s (Euronext NL 0000400653 GTO) machine-to-machine (M2M)
business segment and the global leader in cellular M2M communication
technology, announces that its TC65i quad-band wireless module has been fully
integrated in the AirGate-GPRS system for remote monitoring and site
automation. Developed by Novus Automation, a leading manufacturer of
supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), the system links industrial
equipment to backend computer systems providing 24/7 remote supervision.
The Cinterion high-performance plug-in and play module provides secure
wireless connectivity for remote monitoring and management of industrial
processes in manufacturing and building automation environments.
With a powerful embedded Java™ engine, the Cinterion solution runs AirGate
software directly on the module freeing up valuable computing power for
innovative automation tasks such as controlling robots and improving energy
efficiency in manufacturing. The AirGate features multiple industrial
interfaces for flexibility and easy integration with any automation system.
JMD Automação, a Brazilian solution provider recently implemented the new
Novus device at several manufacturing facilities in Brazil and reported
immediate improved performance and efficiency.
“Novus AirGate is the most flexible solution to implement remote access to an
existing Modbus communication network, with minor or no changes to the
infrastructure,“ said José Manoel Reis de Oliveira, Applications Engineer at
JMD Automação. “As system integrators, we are running extensive tests in
actual applications and based on the first excellent results, we are confident
in the successful deployment of monitoring and alarm applications in
industrial facilities, water distribution management, among others.“
“Cinterion’s design consulting and powerful Java-embedded solution simplified
design and integration, and eliminated the expense of additional processors
and memory,” said Marcos Dillenburg, Technology Director, Novus Automation.
“Cinterion’s industry-leading wireless communication tools allow secure access
into manufacturing from virtually any place, any time for a more streamlined
IMS Research estimates the global industrial automation market will reach $159
billion by year-end and top $200 billion by 2015, with as much as 65 percent
of that growth in the Americas and Asia-Pacific.^1
“The vibrant manufacturing sector in Brazil is driving strong growth in the
region’s industrial automation market,” said Ramzi Abdine, General Manager of
Cinterion M2M at Gemalto Latin America. “Combining Cinterion’s leadership in
reliable M2M technology with Novus’s expertise in automation and SCADA systems
provides customers with leading-edge technology that optimizes operations and
strengthens competitive advantage.”
