There are multiple options to connect production signals from your machines to Evocon. The most common way is a new industrial sensor. You can also use a sensor that is already available on your production line or machine. Another standard method is to use a PLC output connection using a relay (e.g. with Andon lights). These signals connect to Evocon’s device that sends the captured data to our cloud server in AWS.
If you have machines that already collect production data to a local database, then we can set up Evocon without using any additional hardware (data transfer is via HTTPS API requests).
You can read more about this in our post “How to get production signals from machines?”.
