An easy to use Track, Control, and Visualization System.

Plantwatch® provides traceability, error proofing, and control throughout your manufacturing process

Error Proofing and Control

Error proofing with process control reduces build errors and ensures correct product routing.

Easy User Configuration

Plantwatch®’s simple configuration uses drop down menus and a simple graphics editor to allow you to quickly create and deploy your application.

Real Time Monitoring

Serialized or Lot based operations can be monitored, controlled, and logged to provide you with valuable real time and historical information.

Database Browser

Allows logging and browsing of any ODBC database. Delivered with a highly optimized SQL database.

diagramPlantwatch applications are built using radio button configuration for quick easy deployments. Serialized or Lot based operations can be monitored, controlled, and logged with one day of training.  Error proofing with process control reduces build errors. Bi-directional connectivity to plant devices/systems allows process data to be married to a final product’s historical genealogy.

 

See documentation on the documentation page.

Traceability

Plantwatch® stores data within SQL Servers. Each parts attributes, along with process parameters and consumed materials, are stored in SQL. This allows analytical reports to be created for forward and reverse genealogy and process parameters.

Graphics

Plantwatch® has a user friendly graphics system where the user can create their desired screens with inputs, outputs, buttons, images and more.

Control

Plantwatch® allows you to make logical application decisions with its powerful Logic Chart engine. The logic combined with powerful operations such as (WriteToOpc) allows complex logic to easily be created.

Connectivity

Plantwatch® can communicate with a multitude of systems including:

RS232
Ethernet
OPC
Structured Text File
Discrete I/O

Database Browser

The Database Browser logic chart action allows you to interact with a SQL database. You can insert, delete, update or select records from any table within the local or remote database. These tools can be configured with where clauses and stored procedures to limit the records affected. Multiple records can be affected at one time with the Array feature.

File Manager

The File Manager logic chart action allows you to interact with the files located on the local computer. You can copy, rename or delete files. You can create or remove directories. You can also check for the existence of a specific file or directory.

Remote Executable

The Trigger Exe logic chart action allows you to invoke a program outside of the scope of Plantwatch. The program can be a compiled executable, batch file or Visual Basic script. You control how the program is presented, hidden, visible or maximized. You can also send an argument to control how the program runs. The Trigger Exe actions allows you to create application specific functions and invoke those functions as part of Plantwatch

Network Client

Network Client is Plantwatch’s multiple user system. Users can work on their own copy of the user screens and navigate and monitor/control just as if they were at the main cpu.
