More than a video wall system, Activu’s scalable, network-based visualization solutions help energy and utility companies to monitor and manage operations. Our software based systems enable the management of critical operational information across the organization, from the control room video wall to operator workstations at backup sites and mobile devices used by field operations. Decision makers across the organization have the information when and where they need it. Activu systems are also deployed on energy trading floors for assimilating and displaying critical market data and news feeds.
Activu’s tailored software-based systems fully integrate with other mission-critical systems that utility and energy companies use. By working to integrate with major SCADA providers, outage management systems and monitoring software, Activu helps control room staff to maintain situational awareness by visualizing Key Performance Indicators and providing real time data for fast and accurate evaluation and response.
The security of critical assets is vital. Activu is the first visualization solution to recognize the importance of and implement user interaction tracking to NERC standards. Activu is a proven NERC-compliant visualization system satisfying the CIP requirements of our current utility customers. It is the only solution of its kind to use fully encrypted, secure end-to-end communication.
As technology evolves, and more information becomes available, decision makers need to sift through ever increasing amounts of data. To help utility and energy customers quickly identify the information they need to efficiently run their operations, Activu has worked with third-party vendors to develop ActivLink®. ActivLink, a software middle-ware, enables tight integration of ActivWare™, Activu’s visualization and collaboration software platform, to customer information systems so that event visualization is automated. When an event meets certain parameters, visual information concerning the triggering event is automatically displayed, enabling faster and better decision-making. For example, ActivWare is fully integrated with OSIsoft’s PI system.
Utilities are continually faced with new initiatives, expansion and regulatory requirements. Activu’s software-based visualization solutions allow customers to easily adapt to these changes. Our technology is integrated, scalable and ensures that legacy systems, as well as new technology, are fully supported. Customers can easily add new operators, displays, information sources and locations by connecting them through the network.
ln the 24/7 environment of a utility company, it is imperative to have operational continuity in case of outages. Activu leverages its open systems architecture to provide a fully redundant, high availability platform that ensures all components of the Activu system continue operation under any conditions.
