Providing a complete overview to assist automation process
Dykon A/S is a Danish manufacturing company that produces feather and down duvets and pillows. And they are pioneers in digital transformation and automation, and their objective is to always be as efficient as possible. In order to fully optimize their business, Dykon needed a complete overview of their daily operation.
They are using trendlog.io to combine data from their production lines, laboratories and general consumption of gas, electricity and water – all in one place. The trendlog.io platform also helps them distinguish between data sources using different trendboards for each source. The trendboards are easily managed and can be changed to fit their every need.
Simple tools to assist their optimization
The trendlog.io platform allows them to access all necessary data at any time. The complete overview of their daily operation also allows them to comment on feeds, e.g. if a KPI has exceeded a specific value. Furthermore, the trendlog.io platform lets Dykon automatically generate reports in order to document and communicate specific KPIs to the relevant employees.
Dykon uses trendlog.io to connect their entire daily operations with our Web App. Their production lines are connected to our trendlog.io Data Forwarder with I/O-modules communicating through ModBUS/TCP. Their Test Facilities contain sensors to monitor different temperatures and humidities. These data are sent to our Data Forwarder via USB-signal from the sensors. Dykon’s general consumption of electricity, water, gas and heat is also connected to the trendlog.io platform. These values are read by electrical impulses via an I/O Module and sent to our trendlog.io Data Forwarder.
All data is sent to our trendlog.io Cloud Solution via an SSL encrypted connection to secure all data. When the data is stored in our Cloud Solution we can visualize it via our Web App – which requires user/password access – on computers, tablets, smartphones and info screens.
The Web App also contains a few features, among others, a reporting system that helps Dykon provide documentation for daily operations over a specific period of time.
If a temperature or humidity exceeds a specific value they will receive alarm notifications sent from our platform to the relevant personnel.
When an alarm goes off or a certain development in specific data requires explanation, you can also attach a comment to a certain point on a graph, and it will become visible to all users with access. Users are granted access by the overall administrator within the company.
We encourage you to sign up to our platform as you can get a closer look at some examples of the way we visualize data from various places and units. You can sign up on the front page and it’s completely FREE!
