Monitoring Machine Run Time at a Plastics Manufacturer
The Performance Node PB2 board module was the perfect blend of cost, size, and function. The ease of binding and I/O mapping with the Gateways made installation seamless. The 1 Watt Performance radios made for a robust wireless connection for all devices.
Performance P8 Gateways were connected to the PLC in centralized control locations, with each Gateway collecting data from up to six PB2 Node board modules. The PB2 Nodes were installed throughout the facility to monitor each plastic injection mold press. The system is running well and providing the factory with the data they need.
