Oil & Gas

The oil and gas sector is always considered as a primary and profitable source of economic growth for any country as well as the global economy. However the processes of oil and gas extraction, transport, refinement and distribution are very challenging because of harsh climatic conditions with the constant threat of burst where it is almost impossible for any physical person to work there. Hence, future proof automation and data communications is needed within these highly reactive sectors with improving operational efficiency and safety. Currently, to maximize the production through automation, many advanced industrial protocols and systems are used like Modbus, Profinet, SCADA by the oil and gas industries which are difficult to integrate because of their independency and limited connectivity to other systems.

Volktek’s complete range of Industrial Ethernet switches especially designed and certified for harsh mission-critical oil and gas applications, with proven reliability, flexibility, and safety which are highly essential.
