The SAM (Sistema di Aiuto alla Manutenzione, or Maintenance Assistance System) is an automatic system that, thanks to its flexible and scalable architecture, can deal with different types of generic distributed systems related to:
The SAM system was created for the railway industry as a SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) system with the related levels of safety, but it can be adapted to supervise and control any complex electronic or electromechanical system.
The SAM system can perform therefore supervision, control and maintenance assistance services that form an agile and stable tool for diverse and complex situations, such as railway networks, pipelines, hospitals, etc.
SITE S.p.A.’s experience in dealing with various highly-specialised products and solutions, in the fields of telecommunications, transport, networking, safety and energy, led it to recognise the need for a system that is capable of embracing various technologies for a correct management of diverse situations. These considerations were behind the creations of the SAM system: It is a tool capable of combining within a single system the tasks of supervision, maintenance support and control of highly diverse systems.
Indeed, the SAM system becomes a highly integrated supervision and control system that provides simple, easy-to-read and intuitive tools that can be used by operators who today find themselves having to maintain increasingly more complex systems, often including several sub-systems, each very different from the other.
The SAM system collects all the messages, alarms or warnings of all sub-systems that make up a macro-system and passes them through a single gateway that can assemble and organise data and make it available to the operator in a simple and immediate way.
In addition, the SAM system offers a tool to remotely control distributed objects such as, by way of example, air conditioners, power supplies or lights.
