How does ActionPLAN work?
We get to the truth – to the one input in your plant that is costing you the most money, lost parts and time in your plant. Time is money. In an automotive manufacturing environment, ActionPLAN, Powered by MobiNET uses a live data stream to track sensors, valves, safety, robots – anything electric on the machine is tracked, right from the machine PLC through the network. There is no operator entering information, no barcode, just true information straight from the machine.
Like most MES (Manufacturing Execution Systems) or SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) systems, HTM™ Sensors will simply install a computer box processor at the machine PLC with a network cable output and standard 120 V power input. This industrial hardened Data Collection Device (DCD) sends data securely up into the cloud for processing, the data is then delivered over the internet to desktop computers, lap tops or other devices such as your smart phone. All data is encrypted and transmitted using Route1’s CryptoPath high assurance communication service. The MobiNET platform combines the strength of a PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) technology with the trust and flexibility of multi-factor authentication, meeting the stringent security mandates and policies established by governments, defense organizations and commercial enterprises.
