Machinery manufacturer Lyndex Recycling Systems has launched a cloud-based data logging and diagnostic solution. It gives customers easy access to equipment data and new levels of capability to monitor, manage and control operations and performance via a smartphone, tablet or PC.
The online product provides real-time remote access to machine status and diagnostic information, including fault, service and inspection alerts, together with a range of production and operational data covering production figures, downtime, throughput, performance and other factors.
These can be exported for further analysis and reporting.
Information is presented through a series of management dashboards, with graphical representations of equipment colour-coded with live data values, plus run-time graphs, counters and key statistics.
At-a-glance information for each machine provides insight across parameters including run-time graphs by month, week or 24 hours showing machine status and percentage activity, with countdown timers for next in- spection, fault alarms and colour-coded images to show machine production or idle status, oil temperature, motor condition, faults and material currently being processed.
Operational issues can be more easily interpreted, for example, by viewing how many hours a machine is actively being fed material against the number of hours switched on but not in production.
