Fault-related production downtimes are the natural enemy of every value-added process - the old adage that time is money is especially true in such cases. Reliable and, above all, fast early detection is therefore essential. But how can fault information from unnetworked production facilities be obtained, visualized and processed as quickly as possible? Quite simply by linking solutions intelligently - as has been done by in-integrierte informationssysteme GmbH (in-GmbH) and PATLITE.
By linking the sphinx open online IoT platform from in-GmbH to the signal light from PATLITE, it is now possible to quickly transfer real-time status information from unnetworked production facilities to the appropriate personnel. Deviations from relevant parameters, defaults and actual data along with faults in machinery or production lines can thus be detected instantly by everyone involved. The relevant staff are notified immediately by a message and alarm, whether they are on the shopfloor, in the office or on the move. Visitors to the PATLITE stand can see realistic application scenarios for themselves, while in-GmbH is showcasing the technical background in Hall 7.
