03 Apr News: Spiro Control receives innovation award at Chemicals Northwest Awards 2017
Spiro Control was awarded the accolade of Highly Commended in the category of Innovation at this year’s Chemicals Northwest Awards in Liverpool, UK. The category was hotly contested with Siemens, Oranmore Environmental Services, Arcis Biotechnology, Byotrol Technologies and Gexcon UK all amongst the companies shortlisted.
The award was received in recognition of the development of Spiro MPC. It supports the fact that Spiro MPC is a product highly differentiated from any other technology on the market. We believe that a key reason for Spiro Control’s innovation being recognised is that the technology is exceedingly well suited to the open, secure, and interoperable process control architecture being demanded by leading industry players. Furthermore, our solution promises to be a key component for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Spiro MPC provides edge technology to control connected assets, as well as being supplied with Ethernet connectivity, built-in cybersecurity, and the processing power needed to handle big data analysis. Using our IIoT-ready controller clients will be able to improve manufacturing productivity, energy efficiency, data visibility, and security.
