Adlink upgrades MCM for system-wide coverage
Adlink Technology has upgraded its MCM machine condition monitoring, with the launch of the DataConnect Pro remote facility information dashboard.
The dashboard integrates sensor management, data acquisition, edge platform and vibration analysis. Users can simultaneously monitor multiple system devices, master real-time machine operation information and create effective dynamic preventive maintenance strategies for reduced downtime, and increased production capacity, explains Adlink.
It is designed to accelerate industrial automation, says Tim Juan, chief director for the company’s Smart Factory Business Center. “Adlink aims to help enterprises break through the deadlock and build smart device monitoring applications from the end (device, sensor, gateway) to cloud (Paas, SaaS) to implement more effective equipment failure prevention,” he said
DataConnect Pro is based on powerful Microsoft Azure cloud platform architecture and SaaS services. It provides an expert built-in equipment monitoring system using spectral features for more precise notification, says Adlink. There is no need for additional program development or architecture modification, so that it is easily deployed in multiple fields. As users grow and add new system equipment, the expansion is guided by dashboard-based existing facility information rather than redeployment or reconstruction of the whole system,thus reducing expansion costs.
The integrated design reduces cabling complexity and cost and a minimal footprint allows the system to be installed in closer proximity to monitored equipment
A customised dashboard and alarm rules can be created through intuitive instructions with no need for programming.
Predictive alerts on equipment abnormalities prevent unexpected breakdowns and costly downtime
All users have separate accounts to ensure data security and retention of raw data for future analysis and artificial intelligence (AI) applications.
