Hornet Intelligent Endpoint Technology to Enable Real-Time Execution of Reliability Strategy
LAS VEGAS, Nevada, U.S.A. – MINExpo 2012 – Sept. 24, 2012 – Bentley Systems, Incorporated, the leading company dedicated to providing comprehensive software solutions for sustaining infrastructure, and 3D-P, a leader in mobile software and hardware, today announced a partnership to deliver a long-awaited solution for the mining industry. The solution uses real-time data from the mobile fleet to make maintenance decisions and increase uptime. The integrated solution is designed to improve reliability and performance while reducing risk and costs. Joint users will employ Bentley’s Ivara EXP to make fast and accurate maintenance decisions based on data acquired from 3D-P Hornet™ technology. Bentley Systems acquired Ivara Corporation on Sept. 17, 2012; for details, read the Bentley press release at www.bentley.com/IvaraAcquisition.
3D-P designs and builds the most rugged and technologically-advanced onboard open-sourced computing platforms and wireless networks to keep mining operations and people connected. The Hornet™ Intelligent Endpoint™ system consolidates multiple systems on a single hardened technology platform and is based on open standards. Ivara EXP will take the data from the Hornet to analyze and act on for the purpose of maintenance. Ivara EXP Remote will run on
3D-P’s new t200 Falcon™ Intelligent Tablet™, which can host multiple third-party mining applications from a single display and has a bright, rugged, and anti-reflective screen.
Bentley’s Ivara EXP asset performance management software is a leading APM enterprise system used by the mining industry. Operators and maintenance engineers use Ivara EXP’s asset health dashboard to optimize asset performance and reliability, increase equipment availability, and reduce operating costs. Ivara EXP is a cohesive and integrated platform to develop, implement, and manage a living equipment reliability program – automating the collection, consolidation, and analysis of equipment condition data and its relative risk to the organization. Ivara EXP is the central system that integrates asset data management tools with field and plant process and other day-to-day operational systems, and is the engine for proactive analytics and decision making related to managing asset health, extending asset life, and mitigating risks associated with equipment failure.
“The Bentley and 3D-P partnership is in response to the need for consolidation and real-time analysis of mobile equipment condition,” said Paul Marshall, Bentley vice president, asset performance. “Bentley and 3D-P are two best-of-breed companies dedicated to ensuring the reliability and performance of mining equipment.”
“Our products are a perfect match,” commented Ron White, 3D-P’s vice president of technology. “This solution is exactly what the mining industry has been asking for and needing. Bentley’s Ivara EXP running on our t200 Falcon delivers critical applications on one single display. We have reduced technology clutter, and have made the cabs safer for miners.”
