PRODUCT OVERVIEW

EXTEND7000

Applying innovation to process automation and equipment maintenance, SCHAD has created EXTEND7000, a powerful set of mobile tools that provide plant technicians responsible for operations and maintenance activities both real-time SCADA notifications and full visibility and control of automation systems.

Authorized personnel using the application on any mobile device are able to monitor, control and maintain automated systems remotely from anywhere within a facility or the other world and record maintenance activities directly into the EAM system. The product has been shown to reduce downtime by up to 30%, improve service levels by 25%, save 15% of administration time and eliminate paperwork.
