Plantnode Provides Real Time Factory Floor Information


Oakville, Ontario, Canada -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/24/2006 -- It is essential that the technology can connect to any plant floor equipment that has serial, digital, or analog outputs.

This factory floor information can only be effectively achieved with web-based reporting. This functionality allows manufacturers these benefits:

• Obtain real-time immediate access to plant floor information.
• Each device is given an IP address to enable direct access from any PC using a web browser.
• View real-time or historical data for each device by selecting specific data/time ranges or production shifts.

All data can be exported to an Excel spreadsheet for further analysis.

The only way to gain real time factory floor information is to ensure a technology that includes these functions:
• Connect to any plant floor equipment
• Web-based reporting
• Email notifications & alarming
• Integrate with enterprise systems
• Remotely manage hundreds of machines
