  • OpteBiz’s hardware functions with external or inbuilt programmable logic controllers (PLC) in your machinery. With the attached database, we can eliminate layers in the integration process, bringing costs down significantly and embracing simplicity.
  • The FactoNode is a major differentiator in today’s market with its ability to connect to the cloud. Data collected from multiple machines across multiple locations can be accessed wherever you are. You will have remote access to real-time tracking and analytics.

How It Works

The FactoNode is hardware for controls integration and data collection. It collects real-time data to be uploaded to the cloud-based FactoGrid. This modular device is extremely cost-effective hardware. With FactoNode, you are on your way to transitioning your manual or semi-automatic processes to total automation with remote capabilities.

Connect your machine or asset to a FactoNode to begin gathering data. Embedded with MES analytical software, this hardware can be connected to a variety of machines or assets:

  • Computer Numerical Control (CNC) Machine
  • Tire Building Machine
  • Pharma Tablet Press
  • Stamping Press
  • Textile Machine
  • Injection Molding Machine
  • Die Casting Machine

FactoNode Can Be Used For A Variety Of Applications

The FactoNode is designed to meet your needs. It provides easy-to-use monitoring and control, feeding real time data to the FactoGrid

Level / Depth

Pump / Motor

Flow / Pressure

Energy/Water/Gas

Fluid Quality

Benefits:

The collected data from the FactoNode provides data to drive informed decision-making. When partnered with our FactoGrid solution, the modular device provides the data needed to analyze performance on a deeper level.

Real-time data is delivered to FactoGrid. Measurements are collected without delay and available to you remotely. Now you can intervene faster to resolve any problem. Operations will be at their optimum in less time.

Data redundancy and update errors cost time and hinder analysis processes. Data entry is no longer manually. By automating processes, human error is eliminated. Instead data is consistent and standardized. No more relying guesstimates when tracking usage of the product in your tank.

Data collection is faster, storage space is saved and data is accessed with the click of a button. The costs of data entry, storage and retrieval are cheaper. Labor costs are saved by alleviating the need for manual data collection and constant manual monitoring of machinery. With the FactoNode, your time can be focused on growing your business instead of managing the data collection process.

FactoNode can confirm that your assets are operating to their design specification. Faulty procedures, defective products and other errors can be tracked and identified, ensuring your consumer’s needs are fulfilled to a high standard.

The human factor is gone from the data collection process with FactoNode. Because the human factor has vanished, so do the security risks associated with manual data collection.

Features:

  • Programmable logic controller (PLC)/Microprocessor based
  • Local applications for recording and display of parameters
  • Digital and Analog inputs
  • Real time data feed to FactoGrid, a cloud-based MES solution
  • Durable pre-assembled panels
  • Quality design to accommodate harsh environments
  • Localized device backup as a proactive measure against connectivity issues

Optional:

  • Human Machine Interface (HMI) capable with touchscreen or keyboard option
  • Flexibility to handle multiple assets to further lower costs, instead of typical procedure of one FactoNode per machine.
  • Localized data logging only, if remote data collection is not best for your business needs.
What if your machines are already connected to a programmable logic controller (PLC)?
  • Consider your PLC’s capabilities. If it does not have inbuilt database or offer Ethernet or wife connection, you may have a need for additional hardware.
  • If you have the hardware to integrate automation solutions, great! Our Facto software solutions can be implemented with your existing MES. We can set you up remotely. You will be on your way to reducing enterprise downtime and efficiency loss so you can maximize your operation processes.
  • If you are not sure, we will work with you to find those answers together, keeping your process low-cost and streamlined.
