Memex’s Merlin Tempus Enterprise Edition software platform, constructed using HTML5, .NET and RESTful APIs, offers machine monitoring and management functionality. Real-time data collection capabilities capture machine-generated information and sensor data, including alarm states, feed and speed rate overrides, and other metrics. The platform displays this data on visual dashboards and KPI reports.

Features include role-based dashboards for production personnel, engineers, operators and managers; Op-Step management functionality; priority and alternate machine routings; asset management; traceability; event manager pan and zoom; analytics; and advanced data source conditioning. The Operator Portal features freeform text, serialization, rework and scanner support. An optional DNC software module facilitates program file transfer to machines with support for native machine protocols and FTP networking. Gateway architecture enables multi-plant operations across time zones.

The platform can connect to legacy machines and to a plant’s ERP system. According to the company, it reduces downtime, increases throughput and improves productivity.
