Dock Control Upgrade Enables Remote Monitoring

This project was triggered by the need to monitor dock gate status and alarms from a remote UK control room at the same time implementing safety functions locally using a programmable safety device.

Overview

Our client is responsible for more than 2000 miles of inland waterways, including canals and docks used for both commercial and leisure traffic.
