Equipment maintenance in long-distance production line

Download (542 KB)

Several processes in multiple manufacturing lines (Pump, Manifold)



Our customers' production lines have a wide variety of equipment and a wide range of measurement targets.
It is difficult to add new device to that production equipment. In addition, there are concerns that the number of maintenance workers will be limited due to the curtailment of personnel caused by the COVID-19, which will increase the opportunities to overlook abnormal situations.
To address these issues, Multi-Sensing Remote I/O Analog Sensing Unit VZ20X contributes to reducing the risk of equipment failure by being installed compactly near the object to be measured, and by capturing the status of each equipment quickly through accurate sensing.

Equipment maintenance in long-distance production line


Customer benefit

Customer can cover long-distance area and the VZ20X is very compact to install into small space of any equipment.

  • Measure equipment for diagnosis to avoid unexpected stop
  • Customer has so many legacy equipment in each production line
  • Not easy to integrate all equipment measurement data in 1 system and not easy to install new measurement system for each equipment


  • Measure multiple equipment over site with multiple VZ20X connected in daisy chain


  • Installable in smaller space, and can cover long-distance measurement area by daisy chain with 1 ms – 100 ms sampling interval
