Now available for companies interested in simultaneously monitoring and analyzing production data at multiple sites utilizing machine tools where at least one is equipped with a HEIDENHAIN TNC control/StateMonitor software combination per site, this new PlantMonitor can aggregate the data onto one screen for review.
Weidmüller u-remote Meets the Requirements of the Largest Classification Societies for Use in Maritime and Offshore Applications
Modern ship technology is inconceivable without automation systems. In many cases, the requirements are similar to those in the industry: recording, evaluating and monitoring a constantly growing number of signals; then converting the results into control commands within a defined time. On a ship, automation faces additional, very specific requirements: Space is usually even more limited than on land.
