// More Quality & Efficiency – Less Risk

control puts you in absolute control of your process data, even remotely.

Smart Networking via Secure Web Technology

As an industrial IoT platform (IIoT), control seamlessly connects a wide variety of data sources from the production level to all company functions via the cloud. Centralized data management facilitates information sharing and provides full transparency in the process. The acquired data enhances the continuous improvement process, makes procedures traceable and enables smart process linking.

Effective Monitoring of Machine and Operating Data

control provides effective and modern monitoring via web technology and makes process information available for mobile use. User-friendly and clear administration through dashboards and a favorites function ensure fast information gathering for decisions. Automated notification of limit values, events or alarms guarantees a fast response in case of malfunctions.

Operating Data, Analysis and Reporting

control records machine data such as operation and downtime and enables the user to digitally collect production-related information such as quality or job data by entering it at PDA terminals.

control provides the data basis for cross-divisional analyses in the process. The continuous trend analysis of process values, triggered by limit values, generates information in advance and detects undesirable developments at an early stage.

The data obtained is used to calculate key figures directly from the process, such as capacity utilization and overall equipment effectiveness (OEE). The summary is made available online in web reports. Data series and evaluations can easily be exported.

Overview of the Available Features

Monitoring and Visualization

We have rethought the presentation of your process data. The latest web technology, responsive displays and interactive curves bring real added value and not just pretty images.

Monitoring and Visualization
