Manufacturing process monitoring system
Processes must function smoothly. Downtimes for continuous processes have to be minimized to avoid the resulting extra costs involved. Process monitoring is essential for error-free products and to maintain the required standards of quality. INOBALT ProfiMessage and Expert devices are typically being used for process monitoring tasks and are ideal due to their combination of analog and digital inputs and the capability of acquiring process data also via PROFIBUS, ModBus and OPC. The devices can directly record and report limit value violations without having to rely on PC support. Limit value violations can also be portrayed in an alarm list. Data can be permanently and securely recorded to a ProfiSignal database.
