Using Data to Your Advantage
The Murrelektronik Cloud is here and it’s ideal for using machine and plant data smartly. Murrelektronik’s nexogate device is your interface to the industrial field.
A lot of people in a company can benefit from process data including the management, maintenance, programmers and service personnel… Data is used for different purposes such as adapting production, adjusting scheduling and organizing maintenance work.
The Murrelektronik Cloud keeps users up-to-date with the precise information they need. Data can be accessed online via a dashboard from any mobile device, anywhere, any time. You can also define the type of information sent to teams in advance. This allows the production planner, for example, to receive information on a plant's output, while the temperature of servomotors is displayed to the maintenance team.
When problematic conditions arise during the production process the speed of response crucial to contain the situation and avoid expensive downtimes. Prepare for these conditions in advance by setting threshold values for key figures in the dashboard. If the figures are outside of the defined minimum or maximum limits, an email or encrypted message is sent directly to the user's cell phone, allowing them to quickly react to the situation.
Data Transfer Made Easy
The device carrying the data from the industrial field into the cloud is Murrelektronik's nexogate. The compact control cabinet component is integrated into the communication system (Ethernet or PROFINET) and transmits data via the mobile network to the Murrelektronik Cloud. The advantage of this method is that the transfer takes place independent of the IT-infrastructure. If relevant, users can still also transfer information via the LAN connection into their own cloud system.
