Convenient remote monitoring of testing machines
System monitoring for testing machines and remote monitoring of robotic testing systems(PresseBox) (Ulm, )
System monitoring for testing machines:
Precise monitoring of testing machines plus attached/connected components via mobile terminals is available through the System Monitoring tool of Zwick's testXpert® II V3.4 testing software. Used in conjunction with the testControl II hardware and software platform, this handy tool automatically records all key values, including machine running times, number of tests at different load levels and total crosshead travel, and stores them in the EEPROM or NVRAM. Also recorded are extensometer reactions during attachment and removal plus possible overloads, including for load frames. All the stored values from System Monitoring can then be analysed during servicing or remote diagnosis by Zwick.
The service engineer can also input reaction values and his own comments into System Monitoring; configuration is via a special menu. If defined limit values are exceeded, this is indicated via a dialog or field in the status line. Notification via e-mail or SMS is also possible.
Remote monitoring of robotic testing systems:
Robotic testing systems are often in operation at night or at the weekend, making remote monitoring particularly important. Zwick has a special visualization solution for these also. A graphic projection of the status of the individual components is displayed in the web browser in real time, allowing availability of system status to be seen round the clock worldwide. This is also a useful tool for optimized planning of testing capacities. The additional Webservices option sends automatically generated status messages such as 'All specimens processed' or 'Specimen outside tolerances' via SMS or e-mail.
