Machinery Safety System Upgrades

Machinery safety is an integral part of our upgrades to any equipment – large or small. Optima help our clients achieve the required mandatory standards by offering independently-written PUWER reports that places no obligation on them to contract the upgrade work to Optima, but many choose to. From the initial PUWER survey, Optima develop the machine safety control concept with the customer to satisfy the PUWER report findings. The customer is then assured that all relevant legislation has been adhered to.

Of course, with the increasing use of programmable and configurable safety systems in industry it is more important than ever that safety software is written to standard and thoroughly tested.

This is why Optima’s engineers responsible for machinery safety are fully TÜV SÜD trained in Functional Safety for Factory Automation (ISO 13849 and IEC 62061) and have a combined experience of over 30 years in the design of safety related control systems.

Optima have engineered fully integrated systems both as upgrades and as part of an entire machine control system from the following major manufacturers:

Cloud-based data dashboards

If you want to see how your machine or process is operating day in day out from anywhere in the world, where do you start? With the increased risk of hacking of industrial devices becoming ever more prevalent Security Week – New Vulnerabilities Can Allow Hackers to Remotely Crash Siemens PLCs it’s not as simple as just hooking your PLC onto your local network.

An increasing number of companies are turning to remote cloud-based solutions for machine monitoring. Optima are pleased to offer the Cloud-based solution which keeps your automation hardware safely behind a secure firewall. Most of our clients prefer a SIM-card based system. The benefits of this system are that the equipment is always live whenever there is cellular reception available. Our range of antenna options mean that reception is possible even in the most remote locations.

The video below shows a basic demonstration dashboard. If you would like to know more then please get in touch – we like to talk!

This video gives a very brief demonstration on how our Remote Access and Cloud Logging System can help you keep track of how your machine is performing. See when the machine is started, stopped, realise production metric data straight to your mobile, desktop or tablet.

We have been trialling our remote machine data dashboards #iot #industry4. These allow real-time data to be visualised from any PLC anywhere in the world to a PC, tablet or mobile ‘phone anywhere in the world! The system can communicate over 4G, Wi-Fi, or a direct Ethernet connection. From Kazakhstan (yes, we do have two units out there!) to Kendal (we haven’t got one there yet…), we have you covered for a very low monthly cost.
Our remote reporting dashboards which can send #production #reports by #email will shortly be ready for release.
