Industry 4.0 closely links machines, processes and employees. This enables a higher degree of automation, accelerates information exchange, increases plant availability and provides valuable information from the process life cycle. Paledo supports the approach of Industry 4.0 with the Paledo Box.
Paledo Box improves networking in your company, increases plant availability and reduces maintenance costs.
Paledo Box is a permanently installed operator and machine interface at the technical location and enables networked condition monitoring for the maintenance of industrial machines. Paledo Box networks the maintenance staff on site, the production as well as maintenance and logistics processes and automates the triggering of troubleshooting and maintenance measures. Data is exchanged via the manufacturer-independent OPC interface.
If it is technically or for safety reasons not possible to read out the PLC data via OPC, the Paledo-Box with sensor module and by using analog (e.g. temperature) or digital inputs (e.g. counter, limit switch) provides the option of implementing condition-based process automation (condition monitoring) in maintenance in these cases as well.
In addition – with and without a sensor interface – the Paledo Box enables the visualization of the maintenance status of the machine on site. For example, the degree of maintenance, pending maintenance measures, machine availability and information on the current status (malfunction, cause, processing status) can be displayed. In addition, the employee can trigger maintenance processes easily and intuitively via the touch screen. This includes, for example, creating a fault message, reserving spare parts and operating supplies, or recording working hours. The identification and authentication of the employee is carried out via an RFID-capable employee badge.
