Instant overview of cycles and rotations

Data is crucial to visualize and document the effectiveness of the Cobots in work environments. And Plug&Log easily collects and visualizes insights from the robots and into our online platform. Thereby making it possible to gather all other manufacturing data into one complete overview.

From Cobots we visualize information such as Joint Positions, cycle times, downtime and much more, both LIVE and historically. With this information the platform can also notify you whenever a Cobot has stopped or the cycle times deviate. In addition you can even receive automated reports regarding the effectiveness and error types to use for management meetings.

5 Minute Setup

Our Plug&Log is used to track and document Cobot productivity. For instance by providing insights that can be gathered with all other manufacturing data in just one collective overview. As a result our online platform makes a good tool to collect all operations data.

After connecting the Plug&Log box to power and ethernet, we only need to use one Digital Input from the Cobot controller. That is done to securely collect all data without compromising security or allowing for remote control. The Plug&Log box has been pre-configured, and as a result the setup time to collect data from UR Cobots is only 5 minutes. Therefore it is a very easy, flexible and affordable solution for a complete overview and to document effectiveness of your manufacturing.
