Integration of Existing Systems in New Quality Assurance Systems

  • Independent real-time collection of manufacturing, process or quality data directly from programmable logic controllers (PLC) and delivery to higher-level management systems, such as ERP or MES system
  • Recipe manager functionality for writing data blocks to PLCs
  • Direct connectivity via native database protocols or platformindependent OPC UA (Server) technology
  • Wealth of protocols for coupling Ethernet-based and serially connected controllers

Excellent Data and Network Security

  • Buffering of arriving data and addition of time stamps in case of broken connections, automatic forwarding once connection has been reestablished
  • Option for parallel data logging on SD card for traceability reasons
  • Physical network separation between production systems and commercial IT networks
  • State-of-the-art OPC UA security: Optional encryption of transmitted data and authentication via certificates

Lowered IT Maintenance Costs and Investment Protection

  • echocollect as standard component, addition of extra functionality without modifying existing systems
  • No need for additional PC with necessary software updates and administration
  • Working for years once configured – untouched, without updates, and with zero maintenance costs
  • Plug-and-go replacement, if necessary, using configuration stored on SD card
  • Very easy configuration by straightforward project import without requiring PLC modifications and programming skills

Easy Live Data Visualization

  • Native web technology for easy and cost-efficient visualization of process, manufacturing and quality data using standardweb browser without any plug-ins
  • No need for OPC Server or complex SCADA system
  • Scalable, resolution-independent vector graphics for consistent display of data on wide variety of network enabled devices like desktop PCs, laptops, smart phones, tablet PCs or industrial control panels
