A company that designs and manufactures hydrocarbon analysis instruments, mainly for the oil industry, requests us to design a new “acquisition and management” card to replace their obsolete one. It is a specific process control card with the management of the HMI carried out 20 years ago without possible scalability.
EFS answer is to propose a new card design to meet the customer requirements to eliminate obsolescence issues. All replaced by an updated version integrating scalability with the hardware (interchangeable CPU module). Design a card ensuring mechanical and electrical compatibility with machines, therefore with the card.
- relieve the constraints on the CPU card (widen the choice of cards, including towards less expensive solutions)
- ensure a functional replacement of the card
- lower cost price than the previous solution.
