Clicking instead of walking around: Predictive maintenance for distributed pumps
If information such as operating hours, sensor data and filling levels of distributed and non-networked pumps is to be recorded – then you could collect it by walking from station to station. Or you can use the cloud interface of LOGO! and the option of sending the pump control variables to the cloud.
It is so much easier and faster via the cloud: display data clearly on a dashboard and control pumps centrally. For example, predictive maintenance planning is also possible, with demand-oriented instead of cyclical use of pumps.
Safely turning off the power to the construction site
A lot of electricity is often consumed on construction sites – and often despite the fact that nobody is still working there. With LOGO! and the cloud connection, you can create configurable dashboards in the cloud using LOGO! Web Editor (LWE), and also monitor power consumption and compare multiple locations. In addition, construction site power distributors can be shut down safely or individual branches can be disconnected when work is taking place.
Remote-controlled contactors also prevent the theft of electricity. Construction site power distribution boards are used to supply loads via plug connections and are mostly used in the extension area or as floor distributors. They are connected downstream of distribution or connection distribution cabinets by means of CEE device plugs.
A clean solution: changing filters in good time
Filter systems get clogged with dirt over time, so that their filter has to be changed. Instead of replacing them periodically, the contamination limit can be determined. Data such as the speed, frequency and current of the motor, the operating hours of the machine and the current status of the filter can be transferred to the cloud via LOGO!.
A web page created with the LOGO! Web Editor (LWE) displays an alarm to the plant manufacturer's customer when the filter needs to be changed. The status of a filter can thus be called up from any device with an Internet connection, but also in real time via control elements in the plant itself.
When the chickens contact the farmer via the cloud
Monitoring and controlling several mobile chicken houses with LOGO! becomes even easier and more efficient with the cloud connection. Functions such as lighting, opening and closing of the flaps or video surveillance of the nests as well as feeding can all be automated and adjusted via a web page.
If certain conditions or faults occur, the farmer is alerted via the cloud. In addition, historical data can be stored and visualized in the cloud. LOGO! and the cloud enable farmers to easily expand their business by adding more chicken houses – the cloud solution simply grows with them.
