Eaton and The Marsden Group Collaborate to Demonstrate the Applications of Augmented Reality Technology in Hydraulic Equipment at IFPE

Power management company Eaton and The Marsden Group, a global technology company specialized in developing advanced analytics in support of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, will present a demonstration highlighting the applications of augmented reality technology in hydraulic equipment at the International Fluid Power Expo (IFPE), being held March 7-11, 2017, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Visitors to the Eaton booth, S80230, will be able to view and learn more about Eaton’s CMA Advanced Mobile Valve in 3-D via a Microsoft HoloLens experience. The demonstration will include an overview of the valve, highlighting the product configuration, unique features and control capabilities; and application examples outlining capabilities specific to each platform.

“In addition to the CMA valve overview, we will highlight the possibilities that augmented reality technology enables in network- or IoT-connected electrohydraulic devices,” said Paul Brenner, global marketing manager, Eaton’s Hydraulics Group. “Instead of manually checking equipment or sorting through data, we believe the future of hydraulic monitoring will include a combination of telematics and advanced visualization technologies like augmented reality, which will help simplify condition monitoring and identifying service needs.”

Vantage Drilling visiting our R&D facility

We really enjoyed spending a couple of hours with the team from Vantage Drilling this week. We even got to show them our Holo lens and show how we feel it will transform the oil and gas sector now and in the coming years.
