Perception Asset Tracker
Pepperl + Fuchs, Inc. - VMT Posted 05/13/2019
The Neoception Asset Tracker offers cloud-based monitoring of production equipment. RFID readers from the Pepperl+Fuchs IDENTControl System use a tag to identify assets, whose object-specific information is sent via a gateway to the Neoception Cloud, where the data can be viewed at any time. This leads to a more detailed overview and makes it easier to plan production processes.
The number of cycles of certain components during production are determined via RFID, thus creating a more precise overview of the current plant utilization. The generic, cloud-based RFID solution makes it possible to monitor a wide range of production equipment that requires maintenance. In addition to high levels of reliability and self-sufficiency, it offers a number of other advantages.
RFID readers from the Pepperl+Fuchs IDENTControl System use a tag to identify assets, whose object-specific information is sent via a gateway to the Neoception Cloud. Users of the service can view the data in the cloud at any time and from anywhere. Different settings can be adjusted on the intuitive user interface to configure the assets and manage notifications.
The system is highly customizable, meaning that it can be perfectly tailored to the requirements of individual production plants. For example, it is possible to define a threshold for the number of cycles that assets can complete before a service notification is generated. This makes it easier to plan device maintenance and prevents failures. It is also possible to integrate multiple production lines into the system. The user can make status requests and couple or decouple tags to or from objects in the user dashboard of the Neoception cloud.
