TOSIBOX® Lock 500 ensures reliable remote maintenance for moving drilling units

The high-performance TOSIBOX® Lock 500 matches Arctic Drilling Company’s needs perfectly. TOSIBOX® Lock 500 is installed to Arctic Drilling Company’s moving drilling units at the company’s factory in Finland, before they’re shipped off to work sites. For maintenance purposes, servicemen use TOSIBOX® Keys for establishing a remote connection, after the drilling unit is in use anywhere in the world.

“Thanks to TOSIBOX®, we have been able to solve 80% of issues remotely this year. On an annual basis, the savings from remote maintenance can be measured in millions of euros,” says Joni Niskala, Manager, Maintenance at Arctic Drilling Company.

For the moving drilling units, a compact installation of one remote access device was considered optimal. The Lock 500i version with integrated modem does not require any additional pieces, is of compact size and fits well with other systems. Thanks to the Lock 500’s dual SIM feature, Arctic Drilling Company can utilize various operators for connectivity wherever the drilling units may be.

”The need for secure high performance connectivity solutions generated by the fast growth of the IoT is visible even in the mining industry. Tosibox offers evident savings to global players, who benefit from performing operations remotely,” says Jarno Limnéll, CEO at Tosibox.

The new TOSIBOX® Lock 500 became available earlier this year. TOSIBOX® Lock 500 was recently nominated as a Finalist for the Control Engineering 2019 Engineers’ Choice Award, in the Industrial Internet of Things Connectivity category.

Tosibox will be showcasing TOSIBOX® Lock 500 at the world’s leading trade show for smart and digital automation, SPS IPC Drives in Nuremberg, Germany on November 27-29, 2018. Tosibox can be found at stand 10.0-301.
