The Middle East Rail 2016 conference and exhibition is the largest of its kind in the region, hosting rail operators, government entities and contractors.
This event is the region's longest running and most successful railways event and took place on 8-9 March 2016 at The Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre. For almost a decade, the Middle East Rail Conference has helped shape the regional rail market through sharing knowledge, educating the market and facilitating influential meetings and as it now enters its 10th successful year, it welcomes over 9000 attendees and takes up over 18,000 sqm at the Dubai Exhibition and Convention Centre in the UAE.
It has grown to become Middle East and North Africa’s most important and best supported railways conference and exhibition with the UAE becoming a global innovative leader in transportation projects, positioning itself as a global logistics hub with one of the event's key theme’s focusing on the ‘future of mobility’.
We will once again partner with Avanceon at this year’s exhibition to showcase our experience and understanding of technology trends and industry standards to provide customers with creative solutions that can help to make them more productive.
Our objective at the exhibition is to showcase application and expertise to create control solutions that help you decrease maintenance, material and labor costs, and increase your operation's flexibility.
Global competition. Higher costs. Increasingly stringent environmental standards. To meet your challenges you need to increase throughput and efficiency while you minimise material costs, and achieve high reliability within tight deadlines.
Global automation leaders who have implemented the Tunnel Ventilation System [TVS], the Environmental Control System [ECS] and the Emergency Shutdown System [EDS] for the red and green lines of the Dubai Metro will present Avanceon’s seamless solutions combined with our state-of-the-art technology, SIL-2 Application.
“We invested over 83,000 man hours bringing the Dubai Metro to life; our biggest project of its kind to date and certainly one very close to the heart of this truly vibrant region,” said Bakhtiar H Wain, Avanceon CEO, recalling March 2008. “I’m proud of the high safety and ventilation specifications we implemented across this landmark network, it means that commuters can breathe easily.” Avanceon’s bespoke engineering design relates closely to the Rockwell Automation SIL-2 redundant ControlLogix system, the backbone of world class automated safety systems.
“Our Controllogix system is built into the very foundations, a key factor in ensuring safer control of temperature regulation and quality of air inside the tunnel infrastructure,” said Neil Enright, Regional Sales Director, Rockwell Automation Middle East. “We provide centralised situational awareness by monitoring of life critical equipment during an emergency such as a fire.”
We look forward to continuing our solid alliance with Avanceon on more rail and transport projects, where reliable and seamless safety solutions are essential.

A Connected Enterprise with an Integrated Architecture® offers new opportunities for industrial companies to gain real-time and historical insights. These improve performance, uptime and competitiveness, and uncover new possibilities in the value chain. Achieving a truly connected enterprise that captures data and converts it to useful information is far more complex than simply.
Companies are challenged by isolated production systems and processes throughout entire value chains, inconsistencies in network protocols, legacy and proprietary communications systems, and shortfalls in security maturity and training, which present even more difficulties. As the manufacturing economy grows, so do concerns about the availability of enough people with the skills to support the growth.
Today’s leaner staffs are already stretched; monitoring and responding to changing conditions. The result is that data can be difficult to collect, aggregate and analyse. Data can be trapped inside assets connected to the industrial infrastructure, and more data is being generated by a proliferation of new smart sensors and devices, in addition to being accessed via mobile devices and applications.
Improved connectivity across the enterprise achieves two core objectives:
A truly connected enterprise has real-time control and information available across platforms and devices within the organisation.
New technologies, software and information help to increase productivity and improve overall business performance.
Technology that will help customers mitigate their enterprise risk and monetise their Intellectual Property.
An Integrated Architecture can help you enhance your connected enterprise with:
With Logix technology, you can integrate discrete, motor, motion, safety, process and batch control into one infrastructure by using one control engine and one network technology across applications, operations and environments plant-wide.
Logix provides exceptional reliability and performance for discrete applications. Tight integration between the programming software, controller and I/O modules reduces development time and cost at commissioning and during normal operation.
Configuring motor control devices in the Logix environment lets you consolidate controller programming and drive system configuration, operation and maintenance, reducing programming time, easing startup and commissioning and streamlining access to diagnostics.
Logix provides complete support for motion control, from configuration, programming and commissioning to diagnostics and maintenance. True integration simplifies commissioning and data collection, speeding time to market and maximising uptime.
Focused on overall machine performance, integrated safety solutions use efficiency and design productivity to help machine builders deliver flexible, high-performance equipment at a more competitive price. Solutions now include new technologies like safe-speed and safe-direction that can help to significantly reduce development time, maintenance costs and time-consuming, expensive shutdowns.
PlantPAx process automation combines plant-wide control and unmatched scalability of the Integrated Architecture system with the core capabilities of a world-class Distributed control system (DCS) to help you gain a competitive advantage.
By integrating power and energy management, you can leverage existing investments to visualise and actively manage energy consumption without having to invest in or configure a stand-alone energy management solution.
Rockwell Automation visualisation, reporting and analytics solutions monitor KPIs including efficiency, quality and energy management figures, and make them visible enterprise-wide, on easy-to-read dashboards. The contextual, role-based information can then be acted on to improve systems and processes.
Defense-in-depth, utilising multiple layers of defenses at several levels of the architecture and plant, aims to reduce attack risk, identify any potential attack, and delay the attack sufficiently to provide time to react and take counter measures.
Our portfolio of Integrated Architecture products delivers real-time control and information, and will improve your processes at every stage of manufacturing: from design and installation to operation and maintenance.
