About The Customer
FRoSTA AG is one of the largest producer of frozen food in Europe.
The Challenge

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.

The Solution

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.
