Remote Diagnosis and Real Time Data Gathering for Sheeters

Tuesday, April 14, 2009

Press release from the issuing company

Maxson Automatic Machinery Company (Westerly RI USA) has upgraded its product offerings to include both Ethernet and serial ports that allow remote diagnosis of drive, logic control, operator interface and safety faults.   This capability allows Maxson service personnel to assist Customers in the timely trouble shooting and problem solution process despite not being near the machinery.  Additionally, when using a Windows based OPC server, real time production data (such as speed, sheet count, cut off accuracy) can be accumulated.  This feature provides plant management the monitoring ability that can assist in production scheduling and continually evaluates the process quality.
 
The sheeter's drives, logic controller and operator interface have thousands of self diagnostic annunciated faults that identify the specific location or cause of a problem.  These faults can be viewed remotely either through a modem using the serial port provided or using the Ethernet port tied into the site's local area network.  In cases where an electrical program has been corrupted, the damaged algorithm can be replaced or modified from Maxson's distant location using a downloading procedure.
 
Data accumulation from the sheeter's operation can be realized by using a software interface that extracts the desired information on a real time basis.  The records are amassed on an Excel spread sheet for supervisory review or statistical quality control.
 
Please contact Brent H. Burdick, Director of Sales & Marketing, for further information by telephone at (401) 596-0162 or by e-mail at bburdick@maxsonautomatic.com.
