Monitoring data and remote control from any mobile device
When it comes to optimising the operation and improving the profitability of machines and processes, technologies such as sensor networks, M2M communications and the IoT help us to make decisions based on data and images of the operation of ALL the critical points of the machines and processes, regardless of their geographical distribution.
This data retrieved by an IProx controller (in any of its versions) through sensors - or read by the machines themselves by means of a communications protocol (Modbus or others) – is sent by internet to the IProx Cloud platform.
IProx Cloud is a web application that receives, stores, arranges and presents numerical data accompanied by graphics, in such a way that they are of the greatest possible help in the decision-making process for the monitored machine or process. Safe access and visualisation are undertaken through a web browser using a device with a screen sized according to the user’s needs.
Moreover, it is also possible to control the machine or process remotely from an IProx Cloud dashboard. The web interface allows the machine to be remotely turned on or off, its operating mode to be changed, etc.
All users with administrator access level can define as many dashboards as they need, so each team member has the correct level of access to the information they need. For example: while a manager can see high level general indicators of all the machines, a support engineer’s access is limited to those machines for which they provide support and each owner has full access only to their machines.
Moreover, if video cameras are installed in critical areas of the machines and/or processes, it is possible to see real time images and recordings integrated in the dashboards.
The objective (before increasing capacity) must be to ELIMINATE WASTE, which is profitability’s greatest enemy.

- The objective (before increasing capacity) must be to ELIMINATE WASTE
The analysis of historic data, correlated with video recordings, allows the origin of waste to be easily identified.
On visualising the performance of various comparable machine/processes/exploitations, we can (easily) identify the areas of improvement in the least efficient.
The remote management of installations allows the reduction of both response times and the time necessary for decision-making.
