Intrinsically safe interfaces and systems
Advantages of using HMI solutions would be an improved production efficiency and safety due to possibilities of remote control, extended interaction with other equipment on site, prompt detection of faults and problems and, as a result less downtime.
In terms of an HMI solutions business line, VSP cooperates with such manufacturers and suppliers as GECMA Components Electronic GmbH (Germany, from 2008 part of MTL), Systec & Solutions GmbH (Germany) and Siemens (Germany). HMI products and solutions comply and in some cases exceed the requirements of international standards, allowing to use intrinsically safe work stations in a Hazardous zone, close to the process, and provide comfortable and safe working conditions for an operator as well as efficient operation of equipment and the process on the whole at various manufacturing sites around the world.
DC and AC drives, servo drives and electric motors are solutions on Electromechanics business line so far represented by a Parker Hannifin division (SSD Drives, Parvex).
One could hardly imagine a modern manufacturing process not including electromechanical equipment. VSP team is facing a major task on progressive development of Electromechanics business line.
«For us marketing is a complete business process. We do not separate marketing tasks from other tasks facing our team. Detailed understanding of special capabilities of technical solutions by partners-manufacturers; a programme of competitive intelligence; the whole standard tool set for communication with a customer — site, specialised literature, seminars, exhibitions, … — this is marketing. All this in the end makes it possible to efficiently solve technical tasks posed by our customers».
At present a VSP team participating in marketing is focused on developing already established businesses as well as new company business lines.
Generation of informational basis covering a fundamentally extended Instrumentation products business line; proactive work in the Russian market on presenting latest solutions for intrinsic safety; project tasks on support and development of relationships with special customers — all these represent major tasks implying understanding of the market, and require time and resource.
