Manufacturing Equipment Activity Monitor
Remote Monitoring of Manufacturing Equipment Activity
for Asset Use Optimization and Workforce Management
The NEEM Unit is being used to monitor the activity level of various pieces of manufacturing equipment to help determine the best use of the equipment asset
for optimizing the equipment owner's Return on Investment - ROI and help the manage the workforce.
- Manufacturing Equipment Cycles per Minute throughout the Workday
- Percent of Workday that Equipment is in Use
- Activity and Machine Use Trends During Past Weeks
- Other Analog Sensor Monitoring Quality
NEEM unit acquiring data and Sensor Synergy's "open-source" data logger capturing and displaying sensor data
The NEEM unit enables remote monitoring over the Internet or Local Area Network of individual battery voltages, battery bank current during charge and discharge cycles. In addition, the NEEM
provides temperature monitoring capabilities for better analysis of the battery bank state of health. Finally, retrieving historical data from the NEEM, provides "trend" information to
identify the early phase of battery failure so that corrective actions can be taken before the battery fails. This type of
Condition Based Maintenance can enhance the overall reliability of a battery back-up power supply without forcing changes to good storage cells because the
calendar indicates a certain period of time has elapsed since the battery was last replaced.
