InduSoft Web Studio Gives Drag Racer Real-Time Edge in Setting World Record

Racing great Mark Donohue called it “the unfair advantage”.  Rally racers in the UK call it “demon tweaks”.   In NASCAR, it’s “getting the call”.   Whatever you call it, finding little secrets to make your car go just a teeny bit faster than everyone else is what wins championships and sets records.

Imagine the edge given a drag racer who can tweak fuel flow right before a race.   Texan Trevor Stripling discovered he could use InduSoft Web Studio to monitor and tune his car in real-time as he roars down the track.   Competing drivers record data to prep their cars for the next race.  Stripling used this edge to set a world record.

Searing Hot Yields for RRB Sugar - InduSoft Sweetens the Bottom Line for Indian Sugar Mill

RRB Sugar Mills Ltd. is one of India’s largest sugar producers,with a cane-crushing capacity of 400 Tons of Cane per Day(TCD). While most industries rely on external power sources to fuel their operation, sugar manufacturers can produce their ownpower in a process called cogeneration. As part of the process of producing sugar from sugar cane, by-products such as bagasse—a left-over fiber from the crushing and extraction process—can be employed as an eco-friendly fuel for power cogeneration. The bagasse can be incinerated to fuel a boiler furnace, which can be used to produce electricity. The power, produced by the furnace can be used in the production of more sugar cane—a net positive energy gain.

Paulista Shopping Mall

The InduSoft application used by the Paulista Shopping Mall allows a small staff to monitor and control all automated systems inside a modern shopping mall located on the stylish Rua Treze de Maio in São Paulo, Brazil.  The graphical capabilities of InduSoft allowed creation of an intuitive and easy to use interface, which makes it very simple, even for inexperienced users, to monitor and control environmental conditions in the mall. From the control room, the duty operator can perform tasks such as turning on and off specific sections of the monitoring system, check temperatures in different areas of the mall and change setpoints as needed, check for failures in the electrical system, visualize the demand control, print reports, visualize and acknowledge alarms, and—very important to this user—set schedulers to turn on and off specific areas or pieces of equipment inside the system.
