Installed Based Evaluations (IBEs)

An Installed Base Evaluation™ provides better knowledge for you to make informed decisions, thanks to insights into your installed base. This is much more than simply counting parts. It’s a thorough analysis of your critical plant assets and their condition.  

This service provides the knowledge needed to help you make data-driven decisions regarding the support and obsolescence management of your installed base assets. With an IBE, we can help you better understand and pinpoint your lifecycle risk by site, area, line, machine and panel. By optimising your maintenance, repair and operations, we’ll help ensure you have the right parts, in the right place, at the right time.  

An IBE will enable: 

  • Thorough analysis - the IBE goes beyond simple part counting and provides a comprehensive analysis of critical plant assets and their condition; 
  • Data-driven decisions - the service equips customers with the knowledge needed to make data-driven decisions regarding the support and obsolescence management of installed base assets;
  • Lifecycle risk identification – you’ll be able to pinpoint lifecycle risks by site, area, line, machine and panel, helping you to proactively manage and optimise your assets;
  • Optimise maintenance and spares - by optimising maintenance, repair and operations, the IBE ensures you have the right parts in the right place, at the right time, reducing costs and increasing uptime;
  • Inclusion of non-Rockwell Automation products - the IBE collects both Rockwell Automation and non-Rockwell Automation products, creating a comprehensive plant hierarchy model for the facility;
  • Consultative approach - the IBE delivers analysis and recommendations through a consultative approach, helping you to understand the impact of equipment updates and spare parts management strategies;
  • My Equipment dashboard - access to an online tool that provides easy to read dashboards with the ability to maintain the asset list as changes occur on site, giving an updated analysis to lifecycle risk and spare parts management.

A game changer in mine safety! 

The most likely time for an arc fault to occur in a switchroom is during electrical and mechanical operations, such as switching, isolation and racking of circuit breakers. It is common practice in the industry to use personal protective equipment for operator protection during these operations, however it is more effective to isolate the operator entirely from the arc fault hazard. Isolation involves personnel being separated from the energised electrical equipment and conductors. 
NHP's TemRack iR  is a fully integrated automated motorised racking device, which enables remote racking of the Terasaki TemPower 2 AR ACB body in and out of its associated carriage. The automated racking function permits safe isolation of the ACB with zero physical interaction between personnel and the ACB, thereby reducing the risk of exposure to explosive arc fault events and high incident energy.

Minimise risk and maximise safety with NHP's TemRack iR.
