With just a few mouse clicks, a convenient line monitoring system can be implemented using the APROL process and factory automation system from B&R. The solution is based on OMAC’s PackML standard, which can be applied to virtually any machine. To remain competitive, owners of machinery and equipment must eliminate all sources of inefficiency. A line monitoring system provides the information they need to identify and eliminate problems early on. The increased efficiency in turn boosts production output.
The standard PackML machine data interface in APROL contains control modules for machines and lines that provide convenient access to relevant details. Faceplates and sub-faceplates display key data and important details
