    10. 10. Our products deliver application specific solutions across multiple industries Energy We provide electric utilities worldwide with wireless solutions to monitor and control vital processes in the development and transmission of electricity. Oil & Gas We provide the industry with wireless solutions for monitoring and controlling vital production and delivery processes. Specifically designed for the utility market, the DGT Distributed Generation Trip Control is a wireless transfer trip solution that enables fast and secure disconnect of renewable energy generators from the electrical power grid. Fast Wireless Transfer Trip Serial data is available from the PLCs and RTUs located along gas pipelines. A single MDS data acquisition hub can communicate to hundreds of different remote pipeline locations. By using multiple hubs, pipeline customers transmit data from thousands of locations to a central control station. Remote Gas Pipeline Monitoring
    11. 11. Our products deliver application specific solutions across multiple industries Water & Wastewater We provide a full range of wireless devices for many applications including monitoring vital water flows, and sending control signals to pipes, valves and pumps. This MDS data acquisition solution monitors dozens of remote water treatment tank levels. The system uses ultra-low power mesh radios that can operate on internal power for 5 years. Tank level data is collected at the wireless gateway and transmitted to a remote data center using a cell radio and a public carrier. Ultra-Low Power Tank Level Monitoring Transportation We provide wide area coverage over miles upon miles of highway and track worldwide for condition monitoring, signaling, switch control and linking of infrastructure control locations. This includes remote locomotive control, dispatch systems and traffic monitoring. The MDS LOCOTROL RCL is the easiest to use and most capable system available for wireless control of locomotives. This lightweight and ergonomic controller worn by operators provides long range precision speed control for up to 20 trains and 40 operators. Remote Control Locomotive
    12. 12. Our products deliver application specific solutions across multiple industries Public Safety First responders require mobile data access for dispatch systems, backup systems, voting receivers, simulcast systems, last-mile access, and backhaul between control centers and access points. One of our mobile data solutions uses MDS Mercury devices in vehicles to connect over 2000 vehicles in 7 municipalities to essential first response data. Law enforcement, fire, and ambulances have a reliable network to access criminal databases, video, and geographic data. Mobile Data Networks for First Response Heavy Industrial The Petrochemical, Mining and Metals and Agriculture industries leverage our wireless solutions to extend LANs for industrial control, monitor in-plant assets for optimization and regulatory compliance and cost-effectively implement safety and security systems. I/O signals from remote sensors and serial data from PLCs are handled simultaneously on this MDS system at one of North America’s largest surface mines. PLC’s collect signals wirelessly from seismic sensors connected at 25 remote radios to control mining vehicle traffic and facility access during unsafe conditions. Surface Mine Condition Monitoring
