Remote Monitoring to Optimize Overall Equipment Effectiveness
Increasing production line efficiency is always a top concern for plant and production managers. Reducing the amount of time machines are down or not operating at an optimal rate is an easy way to increase overall efficiency.
Wireless TL70 tower lights are installed on machines throughout the factory. Each tower light displays machine status, providing instant visual communication across the plant floor. By connecting to the DXM100 wireless controller, vital data is collected for use in productivity calculations, such as Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE). The TL70s monitor uptime, production volume and rejected parts. Logged data can be analyzed offline or local analysis can provide quick notification of critical changes. The wireless infrastructure eliminates messy wiring between machines and the control hub and centralizes data control to ensure accuracy.
