Software to monitor a machine or process and determine when it is failing.
By Jeremy Pollard on 1 June, 2017 - 10:09 am

Does anyone know of any product or service that will monitor a machine or process and babysit it so that when something fails or goes out of bounds the solution will raise a flag, and report that sensor 'p133f' is failing, and apply to predictive maintenance??

The function is tell me where, what, and when, and then how!

TIA...

If I understand well maybe this software can help you out. Need specific hardware interfaces and whether a PLC is involved in your actual process. This guys can monitor a single machine and or a whole process.
