Cogent offers professional services to develop fully integrated industrial 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.
> Power System Health Monitoring
The monitoring and diagnostics of your power system health can improve your overall operational performance. Cogent’s Power System Health Monitoring can trigger alarms for system operators when a problem occurs and identify hidden equipment performance issues. Our power monitoring solutions and communication protocols empower your personnel to reduce response time and more effectively manage power systems.
> 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, Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) 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 quantity/quality.
> Facilities Monitoring Systems
Cogent offers tailored Facilities Monitoring Systems (FMS) that centralize all facility infrastructures monitoring to improve response times to abnormal events, 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.
> 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. Cogent offers professional services to design, implement and deploy monitoring systems that collect condition based data and integrate this with maintenance system workflows.
> Downtime Monitoring and Reporting
Cogent’s downtime monitoring and reporting solutions are designed to help plant personnel identify problem production areas, locate hidden inefficiencies of the plant, optimize maintenance intervals and increase the overall availability of the plant. Our solutions support both automated and manual collection of downtime events along with reporting and automated notifications.
> Process Historians
Extracting the value from all the data produced within an industrial operation or facility requires the right toolsets to produce and access meaningful information. Cogent offers expertise in the integration of process data from disparate real-time sources into process historians, and the effective deployment of all the tools to visualize and analyze this captured data. Cogent offers experience with all the major historian software companies. Our services are focused on proven methods to collect and cleanse data and provide a reliable data integration solution.
> Device Integration & 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 and IIOT solutions including PLCs, BMS, RTUs, DCSs, intelligent devices and controllers. Cogent has experience with many industrial networks/buses including: Ethernet/IP, Modbus/TCP, DeviceNet, ControlNet, Profibus, Profinet, Modbus, BACNet and others.
Cogent was selected not only for their systems integration expertise, but also because of their willingness to work closely with us to bring our operations to the next level of performance.”
