New GE iPad Application Allows Orbit House Magazine Download

                         Condition Monitoring News and Opinion at the Touch of a Screen

 

Groby, UK – 8 December 2011 . —  A new iPad application from GE Measurement & Control Solutions will allow existing and potential readers of the company’s Orbit magazine to download current and archived issues at the touch of a screen. Orbit is a well-respected quarterly publication of the company’s Bently Nevada business, which provides software and hardware solutions that monitor the operating condition of rotating equipment, such as turbines, compressors and pumps in the power generation, oil & gas and industrial sectors.

 

Orbit is an industry-acclaimed technical magazine, focusing on asset condition monitoring. It was launched in 1980 and publishes, feature articles, case histories and best practice tutorials to help companies optimize their machinery diagnostics and optimization. The new application will provide a convenient way for readers to explore the magazine content on the move. Readers will be notified of new issues available for download and will have access to archived issues in the app’s library section. They can decide whether to download complete issues or specific articles and a bookmark can be used to identify information of particular interest. Complete issues or individual articles can be cached for off-line reading and shared by e-mail, Facebook or Twitter.

 

“The Orbit application gives our readers quick and easy access to the magazine, wherever they are. This will be particularly important in the field where it will now be possible to make immediate reference to a case history or article to help solve an immediate problem,” said Gary Swift, editor of Orbit, “It is another example of the free applications we are developing to help our customers access useful information through their mobile device.”
