OEE OutstationPlantRun is complemented by a range of hardware including operator terminals, barcode scanners & swipe card readers, RFID readers, touch screen interfaces and overhead KPI displays.

Rugged Compact Operator Outstations

Operator Outstations with keypad terminals are a feature of PlantRun systems, providing an interface between the system PC, machine and operator.

They allow the machine operator to interact with PlantRun without having to leave the machine area.  Operators use the terminals for:
  • Logging on and off
  • Selecting reason for downtime
  • Selecting product to run and job/works order
  • Calling for assistance - engineer/supervisor/toolsetter/parts
  • Entering scrap values
  • Reading live KPI information

Outstations have wipe clean alphanumeric keypads and multi-line displays housed in rugged enclosures including versions in stainless steel suitable for 'clean' and 'harsh' environments. Built in I/O allows for simple screw terminal connection of signals from machines/assets, data and power for straightforward installation. Independent power supply ensures terminals continue to operate if machine power goes down. 

Barcode & RFID

Optional input allows for connection of barcode or RFID scanner for capture of barcodes for works order/part numbers/downtime reasons etc. Wireless barcode scanners are also supported.

Touch Screen Operator Displays

For applications that require a full featured PC interface on the shop floor a range of industrial rugged touch screen moniotrs and PCs are available. With a choice of screen sizes from 6" to 19"+ and processor options from the cool running Atom series through to powerful Intel Core 2 Duo and Quad processors you are sure to find a platform to suit your requirements and budget. Touch screen displays allow all the operator functionality available in the operator terminals and have the advantage of providing enhanced graphical capability. IP rated stainless steel versions are available for applications that require clean down such as food and pharmaceuticals.

Overhead KPI Displays

Large format overhead KPI displays deliver key metric information straight to the work area to inform and motivate staff.  Any number of overhead displays - monitor, large screen TV or projector - can be driven from a PlantRun system delivering relevant information to the area in which each display is located. PlantRun 'Display Node' technology means you can site large displays anywhere including production, meeting, rest and reception areas.

Each display can show a static or any number of scrolling screens that can show real time production data or act as a messaging or andon system. A 'ticker bar' can be enabled to display any message from a text file. Display Node can also be used in conjunction with Microsoft Powerpoint allowing Powerpoint slides to be displayed in sequence with any from the PlantRun system.
