Industrial HMI Built for Harsh Oil and Gas Applications

The oil and gas industry has become increasingly dependent on industrial HMI monitors and computers, due to a recent push for safety and operational efficiencies.

Likewise, modern industrial HMI has become one-in-the-same with the rugged monitor and computer industry, replacing older and antiquated HMIs with advanced features and performance better suited for operation in the harsh and hazardous environments associated with the major sectors of global oil and gas.

Upstream Exploration and production rely heavily on industrial HMI to control and monitor process control systems, safety systems, emergency support systems, and vessel management systems associated with drilling, well operation, and extraction of crude oil or natural gas. The ever-changing environmental conditions and global locations associated with the major oil and gas sectors are challenging for critical systems and their ability to perform continuously and reliably under most situations.
