QNX selected by Servomex to power next generation of gas analyzers


QNX, a subsidiary of BlackBerry, today announced that Servomex Group, a world leader in gas analysis technology, has chosen the QNX Neutrino Realtime OS to power its next generation of gas analyzers.

For 60 years, Servomex gas analyzers have helped control emissions, optimize processes, and ensure operational safety in industries such as electricity generation, oil and gas refining, semiconductor manufacturing, chemical production, and iron and steel production. To power its next generation of analyzers, Servomex needed a high-performance OS that has the flexibility to support an array of market-specific applications and the reliability to be deployed in safety-critical environments.

“Servomex offers an immense range of gas analyzers, and we needed an OS that could scale effortlessly across product lines, regardless of feature set or target industry,” said Dr. Stephen Firth, Business Development Manager, Global EPC sales, Servomex.

“QNX Neutrino not only provided the scalability we were looking for, but allowed us to create a modular, future-ready software architecture that can quickly support new product features or address new market opportunities.”

Reliability was a key requirement for Servomex. Many of their products are deployed in hot, hazardous conditions where they must operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, without field maintenance or human intervention.

“We build gas analyzers for tough, safety-critical environments that demand high levels of accuracy and system availability. To satisfy these demands, our products need an OS designed from the ground up for dependability – another reason why QNX Neutrino, with its fault-resilient microkernel design, has proven to be an ideal choice for our next-generation products,” said Dr. Firth.

John Wall, Senior Vice President and Head of QNX Software Systems commented,

“For more than three decades, QNX Software Systems has helped developers build a massive range of industrial monitoring and control solutions – everything from power generation systems to autonomous warehouse robots,”“The inherent scalability and reliability of our OS architecture brings unique value to the gas analysis industry, and we are honored that Servomex is standardizing on QNX technology for their new product lines.”
