The Grindaix Monitoring software package in combination with the Grindaix hardware provides the foundation for digitising processes. While data acquisition is realized by the Grindaix hardware, the software provides the functions data storage, data display and process monitoring. The data recorded by the hardware is stored in the software in a SQL-Light database with time stamp. To visualise the data, the device- and operating system-independent dashboard is called up via Web Client (browser). In the dashboard, the measurement data is assigned to the individual processes and thus displayed in a structured way. Based on the current and historical data, trends or deviations can be detected by the customer at an early stage and optimization potentials can be derived.
The Grindaix monitoring software package offers the possibility to store process variables from the production environment in a database and to display the data graphically in the Grindaix Dashboard. Furthermore, limit values (warning, alarm) can be defined for process monitoring and a limit violation can be signalled.
All these functions are explained in detail below.
In the dashboard, the measurement data is assigned to the individual processes and thus displayed in a structured way in one place. Based on the current and historical data, trends or deviations can be detected by the customer at an early stage and optimization potentials can be derived.
The data recorded by the hardware is stored in a SQL-Light database with time stamp. The archive data can either be accessed directly in the dashboard or read out of the SQL-Light database by an external access.
In addition to the clear data display, limit values for warnings and alarms can be set via the dashboard. Via digital inputs of the Grindaix hardware different process states can be recorded and the limit values for each sensor/measured value and for each process state can be defined individually. A return of a limit value violation can be made via the digital outputs of the hardware, e.g. to a signal light or the control of the monitored process. This allows automatic monitoring with low latency. This offers the possibility to perform a fast data analysis, to proactively derive measures and to avoid errors.
The customer-specific dashboard provides a virtual representation of your production environment. This ensures an intuitive and clear representation of the process data.
