Datamatik distributes a Man_In_Water detector to the aqua-culture industry in Norway. With B-AQUASAFE installed on your portable radio you make sure that an alarm message in sent to all the other radios in case of a man-water-situation.
The novelty is that this alarm message is now OPC-based which opens a whole new range of possibilities.
OPC Alarm messages can be used to automatically stop a high-pressure pump, or for instance turn-on the lights on the farm-infrastructure. The OPC Alarm message will carry the name of the operator with its GPS-location. Acknowledgment features will inform others that the emergency task is being taken care-of. For more information about OPC, B-Aquasafe, or Alarm Dispatch for Radios please use our chat-box at the bottom of this page.
The same alarm mechanism is being adapted for the Dräger Gas detector. The gas detection alarm is forwared to the main control room using OPC messages. Those OPC messages are used to start a gas extraction procedure.
