Optimise your processes and manufacture safely without waste
16 June 2015
Reduce wastage and achieve transparency in your operation with the new improved machine and workstation wireless monitoring system from WERMA.
Manufacturing is becoming ever more complex and can make transparency of the operation more difficult to maintain and disruption to productivity harder to reduce. This is the experience of many manufacturers nowadays, but WERMA Signaltechnik can support your efforts to achieve your goals with simple solutions to optimise your processes and to manufacture safely without wastage.
As manufacturing becomes more complex customers demand even greater flexibility. Many operators find it difficult to maintain a complete overview of their operation and identify production stops promptly. Lack of transparency can often hinder the ability to identify and implement process optimisation.
Freedom from complexity
Werma Signaltechnik offers a simple wireless monitoring system for machines, equipment and manual work stations which is quite different from traditional complex monitoring systems. Freedom from complexity has become the catch phrase associated with WERMA's Wireless Information Network (WIN).
The wireless system is easy to install or even retrofit. Without the need for hard wiring and cabling it is easy to monitor even remote areas.
A signal tower serves as the interface to which is fitted a transmitter unit – plug and play – which then will transmit status changes to a receiver plugged in to a PC. The status change data from all transmitters is collected safely and stored in SQL.
Measure and improve productivity
The WIN software is displayed on very simple yet comprehensive screen views which are simple and intuitive to use. In this way you can obtain a complete overview of your operation. Disruption to production can be identified quickly and the reasons analysed retrospectively. Other analytical tools open the door for a wide range of optimisation possibilities.
In March 2015 WERMA will introduce a new Ethernet master receiver which means that it will no longer be necessary to connect the master receiver to a local PC as is the case now. The Ethernet master receiver is simple to configure and plugged in to an available Ethernet socket in your operation and thus transfers data simply and securely to the database.
Unlimited transmission range
The transmission range between the Ethernet master receiver and client PC is unlimited. The location of the receiver can be optimised and the need for additional costly PCs becomes unnecessary.
New features make the system even more intelligent
The experts at WERMA Signaltechnik have been hard at work to make the system even smarter and more intelligent. The new hardware 'slave control' will not only transmit data but will also control machinery and equipment.
Link and network your machines and equipment in a logical waywith WIN software and then use WIN slave control to issue commands as required. Start or stop a machine to be more energy efficient for example, or use a 'head of line' function to visualise the status of the operation. The licence-free software uses a logic module to support all of the transmitters in the network and to generate the commands.
