You never solve a problem

by putting it on ice.

[Sir Winston Churchill]
That's exactly why we're tackling things and trying to solve these problems in a smart way, with a little bit of thinking around the corner.

Filling plant in China

Customer: Filling line producer
Product: Machine KPI Dashboard
Initial situation: Together with the Chinese end customer, a project was launched for the simple visualization of machine data on employees’ smartphones (BYOD – bring your own device).
Solution: The web-based dashboard from VISUALYS was installed on the Ewon Flexy, which was already installed for remote maintenance, and provided with some special features. Now it is possible to view the most important production data on the smartphone and tablet with any end device and the appropriate access rights by scanning a QR code.
Future: Manufacturers and operators equip smaller bottling plants (and plant sections) with an Ewon Flexy and the matching dashboard.

Always in the picture with smart CHP

Application: Service & maintenance of CHP
Product: Machine KPI Dashboard
Initial situation: Our customer has focused on the service and maintenance of CHP units from different manufacturers. For already installed plants, it is very time-consuming or even impossible to make subsequent changes to the control and visualization systems. However, more and more end customers (e.g. farmers) want to see the current status of their CHP on their mobile devices without being “overwhelmed” by thousands of data from the visualization.
Solution: An Ewon Flexy was subsequently installed in each CHP unit, which is equipped with a dashboard as standard. Here, the current amount of electricity produced is displayed in a modern way, per day, week and month. At the same time, a second dashboard was integrated for service. This shows the service technician the operating hours, current and historical error messages, statuses and properties of equipment during maintenance.

Saw blade sharpening

Customer: Sharpening and production of band saws
Product: Machine KPI Dashboard
Initial situation: Grinding machines for saw blades were developed and delivered for one of the largest American tool equipment manufacturers. The desire to be able to map production on additional devices without having to install additional operating devices on the small systems led the machine manufacturer from Upper Bavaria to the Ewon Flexy device series, including the machine KPI dashboard.
Solution: An address (QR code) attached to each system can now be used to access the visualization directly from any smartphone or tablet. Ewon Flexy reads the data from a Siemens control system and visualizes it via the dashboard on almost any end device. The deviation of the band saw sharpening is displayed with millimeter precision. Every millimeter counts here.

Production of non-alcoholic sparkling wine

Application: Visualization of process data
Product: Machine KPI Dashboard
Initial situation: Corosys supplied the hardware and the process control system for monitoring the production of non-alcoholic sparkling wine to Sektkellerei Jung in Rüdesheim. In the control station, all processes are monitored via the process control system. However, the machine operator only needs a fraction of all the information that is generated in a machine.
Solution: With the VISUALYS Dashboard, the necessary machine data is made available to the machine operator via web access. Thus, this data can be accessed securely from anywhere in the world, at any time.

Groundwater Management „Ayla Oasis Project“

Solved by: Rilheva Italy
Application:
Groundwater Management
Product: IIoT platform
Initial situation: The goal was to transform 430 hectares of desert into a beautiful oasis crossed by lagoons and surrounded by resorts, luxury homes and facilities.
The main problem was engineering: the water table had to be lowered by about 5m in order to carry out the works according to the project. Precise control of the dynamic level of the aquifer and constant dewatering were essential.
Solution: With the help of the Rilheva/VISUALYS IIoT platform, it was very easy to always have the current groundwater levels and associated processes in view. Thanks to a suitable app, the current status was always available in the user’s pocket. It enabled constant control of widely distributed stations, and even commands and setpoints could be sent remotely. The entire control process was significantly optimized through the use of the platform and 50% better efficiency was created.

Monitoring of industrial climate systems

Solved by: Rilheva Italy
Application:
Monitoring of industrial climate systems
Product: IIoT platform
Initial situation: G.I. INDUSTRIAL HOLDING started in 2011 with the introduction of the Ewon Flexy device in all its machines. The mission was to enable secure remote access while collecting machine data to provide a complete overview to the connected service and R&E departments and to analyze the actual behavior of the installed machines in the world. It was quickly recognized that Ewon Flexy was the right hardware solution for these requirements. But at the same time, it was necessary to complement the hardware with an intelligent cloud platform to manage the huge amount of stored data. These should be easy to organize and accessible for all stakeholders.
Solution: The integration of the Rilheva/VISUALYS IIoT platform and Ewon met all the requirements: the ease of deployment, the easy-to-use web interface, the precise and customizable user access permissions. It was important for the customer that gigabytes of data could be managed, secured and processed. Likewise, there had to be clear scalability for growing requirements. With Rilheva/VISUALYS and Ewon Flexy, the customer can now continue to focus on its core business, namely the development of machines of the highest quality.

Supermarket energy monitoring

Application: Energy monitoring supermarket chain
Product: IIoT platform
Initial situation:
Our customer from near Cologne was commissioned to optimize the energy efficiency of 12 branches of a supermarket chain for a discounter from the Netherlands. The goal was to record all consumers, including local weather data, in order to be able to later prove optimization on a daily basis.
Solution: Data about the already installed energy meters was centrally collected in an MQTT IIoT gateway, preprocessed there and transferred to the VISUALYS IIoT platform for storage and processing. The integration of further energy meters is possible just as quickly as the connection of further hardware from different manufacturers. The store managers get access to their current data, as does our customer, who has been entrusted with energy optimization.

VISUALYS GmbH focuses on the development, integration and consulting of software around the topics of Industry 4.0, SmartData and IIoT for the machine and plant manufacturer as well as the operator.
