FRoSTA AG is the German market leader in frozen fish and convenience foods and operates a fully automated raw materials warehouse in Bremerhaven, staffed by 600 employees. To run its warehouse, FRoSTA has a conveyor and four ASRS (Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems), controlled by a series of Siemens SIMATIC automated process controllers designed for warehouse applications.
FRoSTA is using EXTEND7000 as part of a highly secure mobile SCADA system. EXTEND7000 has been integrated directly with FRoSTA's existing Siemens process controllers. The system uses existing Wi-Fi or GPRS infrastructure and BlackBerry smartphones to give engineers 'anywhere-anytime' alerts, providing a low cost, functionally rich mobile control and monitoring solution.
