Intelligent Instrumentation announces the release of the iFactory Monitor, a new and unique way to monitor machines, equipment and processes on the factory floor.
The software leverages standard Internet technology to provide a fully configurable, full-featured realtime solution for local or remote monitoring. It is built around a web server with dynamic HTML and scripting capabilities that include direct access to digital I/O, analog I/O and serial ports, as well as ODBC databases. It allows direct set-up, configuring and viewing of realtime data and events using a standard web browser. Combined with an EDAS (Ethernet Data Acquisition System) device from Intelligent Instrumentation and a personal computer, the iFactory Monitor is a complete monitoring solution, ready for use on any intranet/Internet.
The iFactory Monitor application software (EDAS-1033S-1) pulls together the easy-to-use browser interface with real-time monitoring to provide distributed universal access to almost any device or process. Graphical and tabular viewing of realtime data, logging, alarms and control are all built into the application. Anybody who can "surf the web" can now track machines, equipment and processes from any computer on the Internet. iFactory Monitor is good for remote, embedded and distributed monitoring requirements such as data logging, machine monitoring, equipment utilisation, remote power management, security and energy management systems.
To configure the iFactory Application, the forms are filled in using a standard browser. The application is built using Standard HTML, Java applets and script. it can be used out of the box or can be completely customised for any specific application. All source code and design documentation for the monitor application is included with the product. The product has an IDE (integrated design environment) that allows the development of dynamic HTML content for complete user expandability and customisation. The included Java applets provide remote viewing of realtime data and events using graphs, meters and tables that run directly in the browser.
iFactory Monitor works with all of Intelligent Instrumentation's EDAS line of Ethernet-based data acquisition systems, including the digital, multifunction and serial versions. The iFactory Monitor product also comes included as part of the EDAS starter kits for the following EDAS products: multifunction EDAS (EDAS-1002E-SK1, EDAS-1031E-SK1), digital EDAS (EDAS-1001E-SK1) and serial EDAS (EDAS-1025E-1A1, EDAS-1025E-2A1).
