Cogent offers fully integrated operations monitoring systems that connect to all the diverse sets of technology within the infrastructure of a facility or operation (i.e. utilities, BMS, fire and safety systems, lighting, access, etc.) to offer an organized and effective “single pane of glass” view into operational performance. Our solutions combine central control room philosophies, alarm management and performance monitoring with mobile technologies for notification of operational conditions, enabling staff to quickly respond to upset conditions or emergencies without compromising on service, quality or security.
> Facilities Monitoring Systems
Cogent offers tailored Facilities Monitoring Systems (FMS) that centralize all facility infrastructures to improve monitoring, response time, decision support and dispatching of resources. Personnel are provided with quick access to information through a “single pane of glass,” allowing them to gain valuable insight into operational conditions and important issues.
> Plant Operations Monitoring Systems
Many operations produce volumes of real-time or near real-time operational data that is often trapped in silos. Cogent develops tailored plant operations monitoring systems that provide insight into equipment health and process performance. Leveraging our monitoring solutions, clients are able to decrease process variability and unnecessary maintenance while increasing the reliability of assets and production quality.
> Equipment Condition Monitoring
Implementing condition-based monitoring increases the reliability of assets. Timely work orders can be generated to provide maintenance and reliability engineers with the information they need for planning maintenance activities.
> Device Integration and Network Communications
Cogent’s staff offer extensive experience in industrial IT and control device communications, enabling device connectivity to maximize the value of data from disparate systems. Our device integration services provide connections to a broad range of systems within the operation including PLCs, BMS, RTUs, DCSs, intelligent devices and controllers. Cogent has experience with many industrial networks/buses including: DeviceNet, ControlNet, Profibus, Profinet, Modbus, BACNet and CanOpen.
