Our computers are built for survivability and reliability in distant, exposed and challenging locations to support the exploration and supply of the world’s energy needs. We specialize in everything from compact industrial computers through to instantly deployable mobile racks, and have supported applications covering seismic exploration, solar and wind power delivery, SCADA, simulation, surveying, production, blow out prevention and oilfield satellite communications. We are also heavily involved in water treatment and supply industries, delivering remote monitoring and high levels of controls to meet the exact computing demands of the sector.

We have designed and delivered computers for deployment in locations as remote as the North Sea, so we know what it takes to equip a platform to operate well Beyond the Yellow Line in the world’s most demanding environments. From engineering and testing for EMC resistance and additional chassis ruggedization to extending operating life and availability, our computers are optimized for reliability in mission critical applications.
