Hanwell and Seaworthy announce partnership to develop new wireless data acquisition demands.
Datanet+ is First Result of New Alliance
Monday 22nd April, 2002 - Hanwell Instruments Limited (UK) premier manufacturer of advanced industrial data acquisition systems, and Seaworthy Systems, Inc., world leader in marine engineering today announced a strategic alliance to implement Datanet+ system into the Pharmacutical, Food and Chemical processing and Water treatment industries throughout USA. Datanet+ uses radical wireless technology to enable real time data procurement from any location, providing critical information away from the most extreme or sensitive situations.
Datanet+ is a completely new concept in the management and control of data acquisition, offering a seamless integration of standalone dataloggers, radio telemetry and wired bus systems. The datanet+ topology utilises the concept of acquisition nodes. Each acquisition node can range in complexity from a single channel stand-alone datalogger, through 2-channel battery powered radio telemetry transmitters, onto complex multi-channel systems. In order to provide maximum flexibility, a wide range of communication options are available for data recovery. Datanet+ PC decoding software ensures a uniform presentation of the data, regardless of the combination of options selected.
Under the alliance, Hanwell and Seaworthy will actively seek diverse markets with the worlds foremost organisations. In September of 2001, Seaworthy announced the successful amalgamation of manufacturing representatives throughout North America and has created outstanding distribution networks and VAR programs in a short space of time. The combination of companies will signify the most extensive data solutions administration in North America. Customers will have one stop access to wireless data management applications and interpretative software for all enterprises. Hanwell has made a technological leap forward by bringing together the best in this field of electronics to deliver Datanet+ to market. The cost savings to industry are immense as absolutely no wiring takes place. Sensor readings are distinctly accurate wherever sited and signal output is the most powerful, negating the purchase of a multitude of transmitters where Hanwell-Seaworthy may position only two.
'The alliance is a significant opportunity and a perfect fit for Seaworthy', stated Bob Murphy, Director of Sales & Marketing of Seaworthy. 'The two companies have the same origin and the same purpose. This relationship provides the highest quality wireless design and installation procedures for all data acquisition procedures. Hanwell is widely known to possess the best in data acquisition available anywhere and has been accredited with ISO9000:2000 in recognition of their quality assurance. Our delivery mechanism is already in place where customers will have a seamless ordering and installation system for all of North America. Companies will also be able to test and purchase on a regional basis. Since the companies have such similar operations, we will be able to utilise the assets of both more effectively and provide efficiencies and better data solutions for our customers.'
The first Datanet+ applications are already being installed into US Pharmaceutical and Food & Chemical processing facilities. Other US applications currently being explored or developed for Datanet+ data acquisition modules include the environment, agriculture and transport.
