Advantech offers a production line monitoring solution with a simple architecture by combining the WISE-4050 IoT Wireless I/O Module with HMI/SCADA software WebAccess. In the production site, the multi-channel digital input/output WISE-4050 is in charge of connecting the three-color light and counting/timing sensor, and then wirelessly uploading the data to the system. In the control center, WebAccess immediately and dynamically displays the front-end information on the computer screen, so that managers can monitor the equipment status of the production line without the need to go to the scene of the problem, while the recorded data and the periodically generated reports can help users to analyze equipment utilization. The WISE-4050 is a feature-rich wireless module and its log function with an RTC time stamp is able to accurately handle more than 10,000 data samples. The internal flash memory can temporarily store data when network disconnection occurs, and can continue to upload the data after the network recovery without worrying about data loss. The counter function records the number of WIPs and allows users to calculate the time difference through software programming, thus evaluating the production efficiency. Supporting multiple communication protocols (including Modbus/TCP, TCP/IP, UDP, DHCP, HTTP, etc.) and RESTful Web API makes software programs or systems easily get the captured data. With its compact size (80 x 148 x 25 mm), the WISE-4050 does not take up that much space to transmit data without wiring. Providing DIN rail, wall and stack mounting options enables the crowded and complex factory environment to have a suitable on-site installation. Benefiting from browser-based WebAccess which supports a variety of desktop and mobile devices, users can remotely monitor anytime anyplace. Advantech provides professional version with 600 tags to tie in with the scale of the panel factory, allowing users have sufficient access rights to view the production line monitoring system. In addition, Advantech offers customized software services for the client's special requests making this solution more in line with the panel maker demands.
