Routeco introduces Red Lion ProducTVity Station

Routeco is introducing the ProducTVity Station (PTV), from Red Lion, the only ready-to-deploy product for collecting, recording and displaying real-time production data such as critical key performance indicators (KPIs) and machine status messages on any flat screen TV, monitor or projector equipped with a DVI/HDMI interface.

PTV is able to collect data from a wide range of automation components such as PLCs, motor drives, motion controllers, bar code scanners and more by using an in-built library of 200+ communications drivers or protocols. The PTV's 720p (1280 × 780 resolution) DVI output is compatible with both 720p and 1080p/i TVs with DVI or HDMI interfaces.

An easy-to-use, fully-programmable graphical interface allows users to create high-definition visual management displays without the limits imposed by traditional LED-based displays, visually combining KPIs along with andon messages.

A built-in data logging capability can record key performance indicators, as well as andon events and synchronise log files with any FTP server and/or Microsoft's SQL Server for further analysis.

Jesse Benefiel, Red Lion Product Manager, says: "Lean manufacturing, six-sigma, total quality management, continuous improvement, are all in some form or another, to the efforts of companies as they strive to become more competitive in a global economy. While various strategies are implemented in order to improve productivity, they all have two things in common: the collection of KPIs and the communication of those KPIs to the people who can most affect improvement, the production floor personnel."

The ProducTVity Station extends production monitoring to key personnel by providing email and text alerts, and its built-in Webserver capability allows production information to be monitored and viewed remotely via any networked PC or Web Enabled Device. Key Production and/or Maintenance Personnel can be alerted promptly to any issues affecting production and take full control of the system either whilst on site or remotely.

Red Lion's ProducTVity Station comes complete with a 2GB CompactFlash card, as well as a DVI to HDMI cable (15 '), and HDMI/DVI adapter. The device is programmed with Red Lion's popular (FOC downloadable) Crimson software.
