Mobile Worker Concept

Tab-Ex® 02 simplifies Mobile Workers’ day-to-day activities by making live data, digital photos, videos, and video streaming possible any time and anywhere.
Mobile Solutions Enhance Efficiency during Operation
The integration of augmented reality applications and connectivity to higher-level information Systems combines virtual and real process data and makes your system transparent. This not only provides information about device status and process data, but it can also identify the appropriate system equipment, preventing malfunctions. Whether for navigation through the plant or for maintenance—processes become safer, more user-friendly, and more efficient.
Maintenance in Line with Industry 4.0
Processes and related information are no longer simply visible, but are superimposed directly on the display—without any navigation whatsoever. This enables real-time maintenance. Users can access maintenance cycles and corresponding documentation on-site. Predictive maintenance is also possible, as deviations in the measured values are identified ad fixed automatically.
Successful Turnaround Management Minimizes Downtime
System shutdown and startup procedures involve sensitive and time-critical processes with numerous coordinated activities. Tab-Ex® 02 offers support with augmented reality-based applications: error-free shutdown and startup procedures can be carried out quickly and efficiently with standardized support.
Real-time localization and tracking of assets
Due to increasing complexity, asset management is gaining more and more importance—especially for companies with multiple sites and numerous sales representatives. In combination with the right apps, organizations can benefit from increases in efficiency and productivity.
