Embedded software and high-end meat
Powis needed to build a new line of industrial ovens. Their customers, who include Armour, Swift Premium and Smithfield foods, need durable, easy to use industrial oven controls to provide accurate temperature control, efficient thermal flows, consistent processing schedules and electronic data logs, and precise performance in order for Powis to deliver the highest quality meat products on the market. With cost exceeding tens of thousands of dollars the technical reliability of Powis’ industrial products is crucial for their customer’s future success.
Importance of embedded software and Powis reputation
Powis selected the Nucleus RTOS because of the availability of source code, plus it offered an embedded graphical user interface, Inflexion UI. Also chosen was EDGE developer suite, a comprehensive set of software development tools which provided the flexibility needed to integrate previous embedded software into their new product design.
Faster time to market
With EDGE 2.0 Powis was able to deliver a new product in three weeks without any problems and Inflexion UI provided easy-to-develop features that Powis was looking for in order to develop more dynamic user interfaces, which is a key differentiating technology.
“Honestly, the strength of EDGE is the complete package”
