Think temperature monitoring isn’t vital? Think again

Whatever the industry sector, temperature monitoring is a necessary consideration to ensure operations run smoothly. There are a number of ways one can monitor temperatures but choosing the correct technology for the application can make a huge difference. For instance, the Maxiflex system offers an unbeatable choice for high density temperature monitoring applications.  With it’s fully inter-channel isolated Thermocouple and RTD input modules and the ability to integrate easily into DCS, SCADA and alarm/trip systems it provides significant advantages and costs savings over PLC and hockey puck solutions.

The company was founded in 1965, formerly known as Conlog, specialising in process control, alarm/event management and instrumentation products and systems. In 1997, the original instrumentation business division of the company changed its name to OMNIFLEX Ltd.

Omniflex works across all business sectors including pharmaceuticals, hospitals, oil, gas, nuclear, water, electrical distribution and energy monitoring.

The company has its offices in the UK, South Africa, and Australia, and the company’s products are sold on five continents. Product ranges include well-known brands such as OMNI SIL alarm annunciators, OMNITERM SIL signal conditioning, MAXIFLEX intelligent remote terminal units (RTU) and I/O systems and the MAXILARM/Omni 4000 alarm/event management systems.

We bracket ourselves as a ‘remote monitoring specialist’, using data acquisition systems, with better than 1mS timestamp at the IO point (from several I/O up to thousands of I/O),  alarm event management including multiplexing systems, telemetry systems, Data2Desktop using standard web browsers, over varying forms of media and high-integrity (SIL1) annunciator systems.

A particular area that Omniflex is also very strong in is obsolescence issues on old legacy alarm annunciators systems. We have, in most cases, a solution for replacement of Rochester, Highland and Robinson’s annunciator systems. Our alarm annunciator systems have been substantiated by Sellafield for and on behalf of all the nuclear operators.

An area that we can offer customers significant cost savings is through the use of our CONET networking technology, which is supported by many of our RTU / PLC products. Using our CONET network technology allows existing installed cabling to be used therefore significant cabling/installation costs can be avoided. A typical example of this whereby our customer in the nuclear industry used our CONET technology, retained their existing cabling and infrastructure, saved them in the region of £1m on cabling and scaffolding.

As a worldwide supplier, OMNIFLEX provides technical training, back-up and application engineering support to a variety of industry partners including local distributors, value-adding resellers and systems integrators, to provide superior levels of service to the end user.
