The design and manufacturing process is 100% made in North America, guaranteeing first-rate product quality and above standard after-sale support.
Our studies uncovered major concerns on the part of many companies about utilisation of PC technology in process control, data collection, systems monitoring and real time applications. The standard PC designs do not offer the required reliability, and PC manufactures are not positioned to provide the required engineering revision control and life cycle support demanded for those applications. Furthermore, we found that customer wanted a supplier that understood their concerns and had infrastructure supporting a 3-5 year production run and support period. The PC manufacturers are not concerned with these requirements, nor are PC design to operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with low MTTR and high MTBF.
