Inexpensive and Quick to Implement
Data acquisition in manufacturing can become a challenge due to the often lack of uniformity in the machine landscape. In addition to automated transferal of machine signals (PLC, sensors and similar), Cosmino Express also makes manual entry of data possible using an online dialog.
We provide data acquisition using machine-readable documents (see Cosmino IntelliScan) for use with minimal hardware and few IT resources in a manufacturing system that has not been networked. Ultimately, a network-capable PC, a document scanner and a printer will be required for operating the software for this. The data acquisition and entry methods can be combined and exchanged at any time.
The system can be expanded to use optional interfaces for ERP, CAQ or MES systems for integrating into your IT environment. Cosmino Express OEE will report the operating data in this case and give you the additional functionality of an operational data acquisition system (PDA).
