Machine Monitoring/Overall Equipment Effectiveness Solution Guide

This guide provides step-by-step instructions for using a wireless solution for machine monitoring and overall equipment effectiveness (OEE). Expand available data beyond the local indication a standard tower light provides by connecting the TL70 Modular Tower Light with a wireless radio base, such as the DXM100 Wireless Controller.

Solution: Wireless TL70 Tower Lights paired with a DXM100 Wireless Controller

Benefits: Remote monitoring of assets, access to previously unavailable data

Remotely Monitor and Track Machine Status with Wireless Tower Lights

Using a TL70 Modular Tower Light with a wireless radio base improves machine monitoring and overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) by expanding available data beyond the local indication a standard tower light provides. Beyond local indication, each TL70 can provide remote status of each light module, track the cumulative time ON for each light module, count the number of events each module has transitioned from the OFF to ON state, and count parts. This system provides the information necessary to react quickly to system changes and drive efficiency improvements based on data that was previously unavailable.

Features and Benefits

Machine Monitoring Monitor machine inputs with up to four tower light modules (on up to 24 tower lights) and eight states (flashing or solid for each light module)
Up Time Track cumulative ON time for each light module for both flashing or solid independently
Event Counters Count the number of times each light module transitions from OFF to ON for both flashing or solid independently
Part Counting Count parts produced or rejected using internal 32-bit register in TL70
Remote Master Light Use a master light to show combined status of all light modules
Time Stamped Logging Time stamped logging of light statuses, timers, counts, and part counts to a local SD memory card
SMS Text/Email Alerts Generate SMS text and/or email alerts based on specific events
Efficiency Metrics Produce efficiency metrics with provided data (average availability, production speed, production quality, etc.)
Cloud Monitoring  Push data to Cloud webserver or PLC (via LAN or cellular connection) for remote viewing, alerting, and logging
