Fastems’ Fadector automated data collection system monitors production to eliminate errors that may be generated during manual collection of data.
The system collects eight I/O signals from the production machine and matches the combinations to the device’s state codes. The states can be examined using a 24-hour period, 7-day period or a specific user-selected period. The application works with the Windows XP operating system and data transfers between devices using a local area network.
Options include external touchscreens, a Web-interface for group-level monitoring, integration with ERP systems, analog data collection for vibration and temperature measurement and a contacting service feature.
