Cap­tu­re pro­duc­tion data with apronic

Cap­tu­re, visua­li­se, ana­ly­se pro­duc­tion and machi­ne data!

In many machi­nes, a lar­ge amount of data has been lying dor­mant in the con­trols for a long time. Pro­duc­tion data acqui­si­ti­on is play­ing an incre­asing­ly important role in digi­tal pro­duc­tion. In the vast majo­ri­ty of cases, howe­ver, machi­ne data coll­ec­tion fails due to the lar­ge num­ber of dif­fe­rent pro­to­cols of the indi­vi­du­al con­trol sys­tems. The data from many machi­nes is the­r­e­fo­re often neither coll­ec­ted nor eva­lua­ted. Yet this data can form the basis for opti­mi­sing pro­duc­tion or pro­duc­tion pro­ces­ses.  Our solu­ti­ons help you to coll­ect and ana­ly­se this data to opti­mi­se your production!

The Red Lion Fle­xEdge™ Platform

Tog­e­ther with our part­ners, apro­nic offers you the neces­sa­ry tools to make your machi­ne and pro­duc­tion data usable for all sys­tems abo­ve it, such as ERP pro­gram­mes. We show you how to coll­ect, visua­li­se, link and use machi­ne data. For exam­p­le, crea­te key per­for­mance indi­ca­tors such as OEE or FPY and use them to moni­tor and opti­mi­se your production.

Modu­lar design for all appli­ca­ti­ons in the pro­duc­tion environment

Red Lion’s Fle­xEdge™ Intel­li­gent Edge Auto­ma­ti­on Plat­form brings tog­e­ther indus­tri­al data like never befo­re. Fle­xEdge offers a sca­lable solu­ti­on to inte­gra­te com­plex mul­ti-ven­dor envi­ron­ments into digi­tal trans­for­ma­ti­on stra­te­gies, while pro­vi­ding a future-pro­of solu­ti­on for chan­ging appli­ca­ti­on requi­re­ments. Regard­less of the brand of PLC or other field device, the Fle­xEdge plat­form, run in con­junc­tion with Crims­on® soft­ware, enables con­nec­ti­vi­ty to vir­tual­ly any point in your pro­duc­tion. Even ana­lo­gue I/O data points can be inte­gra­ted via the up to 10 hot-swappable I/O modu­les. Con­nec­ti­vi­ty modu­les inte­gra­te WLAN, LTE and other com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on tech­no­lo­gies into the appli­ca­ti­on. In this way, a seam­less inte­gra­ti­on of data from the field level into cloud sys­tems can be achieved.

The Crims­on 3.1 soft­ware com­bi­nes the con­fi­gu­ra­ti­on of device data and the crea­ti­on of cus­tom appli­ca­ti­ons. This free soft­ware plat­form is used to con­fi­gu­re many Red Lion devices such as ope­ra­ting panels (HMI) or I/O modu­les. With the Crims­on soft­ware, stan­dard appli­ca­ti­ons such as local data log­ging, the con­fi­gu­ra­ti­on of own web­sites with indi­vi­du­al data points and the con­nec­tion to Azu­re, Ama­zon or Goog­le cloud sys­tems are easi­ly con­fi­gu­red. In addi­ti­on, the soft­ware offers num­e­rous con­nec­ti­vi­ty solu­ti­ons and the pos­si­bi­li­ty to use own code for the crea­ti­on of com­plex applications.
