PhDC4D is going through its final adjusts to be launched in App form, for Windows Mobile, Android and IOS. The App will allow user to do everything he does in the site, managing inspections and defects in hulls, pipes and other structures. Although PhDsoft expects it to be much more used to register anomalies than to manage inspections.
Besides having all equipment status in the pocket, the user of PhDC4D App will be able to synchronize the anomalies registered as soon as he is back to the office, making data available to every member of the team. And thus, PhDsoft technology keeps evolving to the integration into three systems:
- Computers – more technical, with its 3D models.
- Internet – more managerial, where are registered all defects.
- App – managerial and technical.
Intrinsically safe equipment
Since the App is going to be used in structures like offshore platforms, one alert we must make is that only intrinsically safe tablets or phones are allowed. Any other kind of equipment is forbidden because of the risk of explosions.
In intrinsically safe equipment, produced by companies like Aegex Technologies and Sonim Tehcnologies, the electrical energy available in any spark which can occur in the hazardous area will be non-incentive. This avoids the risk of explosions.
