iSOL8 automates isolation processes using cloud technology, intelligent lock boxes, NFC radio tagging and mobile devices.
How it works.
Automating isolations is a holy grail of engineering. Currently, in most projects around the world, isolations are performed using paper. In many cases, not even paper printed from a system, but old-fashioned handwritten documents.
iSOL8 is the world's most advanced isolation automation system. It gives the authorising engineer the ability to digitally verify that isolations are in place, releasing the permit in real-time.
This means improved compliance, less downtime, and more product shipped. It also means an enhanced technology brand for your business, as one that employs advanced automation to help make workers safer.
The Gatekeeper App is the heart of the iSOL8 system. It allows isolators to tag equipment as safe, and controls when workers can tag on and tag off. The iSOL8 Gatekeeper won the DXC Digital Innovation Platinum Award in 2019.
Most people associate the blockchain with Bitcoin. In industry, it's about compliance. Blockchains are the gold standard for information security. iSOL8 optionally writes every safety event to the blockchain, creating an immutable ledger.
iSOL8 provides real-time access to critical process information. iSOL8 means isolations can be easily repeated, workers are safer, and work goes faster.
Linked with the ePermit module, ISOL8 can ensure that you only release a permit if the physical controls are in place. This helps remove the error factor and subsequent risk.
