New Machine Monitoring Operator Interface

Shop Floor Automations, a reseller for Scytec DataXchange, has announced that the Operator Data Interface (ODI) has been released. This will replace the Data Entry screen and serves as a concise, clean and straightforward tool for monitoring manufacturing equipment.

Features and benefits of the DataXchange ODI:

  • ODI makes data entry for machine activity simpler to use. The device running ODI does not need internet access for data entry actions. Data that machinists can enter manually ranges from downtime reasons, to work orders, active part numbers, scrap part counts and more. A Windows, Android or iOS tablet can also be installed at the machine to use the ODI right at the control, to save operators time.
  • Mobile ODI monitoring allows for more freedom. Users do not have to worry about loss of access to the machine monitoring system when they are away from work. Users can view the ODI via the Apple app store, Google Play and the Windows app store, and can also opt for text and email OEE notifications.
  • This new display makes DataXchange even more customizable. The existing Custom Commands are still included, but enhanced. For example, the display for tracking data is now easier to read. Other than lists, graphs or the shop floor layout, stacked color boxes display the limited info needed and defined colors that symbolize equipment status. This will make displays via tablets, phones or even real-time viewer dashboards on the shop floor easier to understand.
