Resources

Overview:

Customers want to improve maintenance by predicting failures of existing durable equipment. However, existing equipments do not have enough space, and it is not easy to increase the number of sensors needed to grasp the condition.
To address this issue, the VZ20X’s compact size allows it to be installed between equipments, and data collection can be easily monitored via Ethernet (Modbus/TCP).
 

Overview:

When maintenance work of production equipment or trouble occurs, customers want to check the situation at the site immediately.
They also want to prepare easily for that (building a measurement system).
In response to these demands, the VZ20X and GA10 make it easy to construct a DATA collection system (on-site confirmation system) and quickly check the status of production equipment.

Overview:

Production stoppages caused by sudden malfunctions in production equipment are a serious loss of opportunity.
Equipment inspections to prevent failures are often carried out based on the experience and sense of maintenance personnel, and are fraught with risks.
Customers want to perform maintenance appropriately in accordance with the timing of regular stoppages and the condition of the equipment, not as a rule of thumb for maintenance personnel.
To meet these expectations, the VZ20X can be installed compactly in the gaps of existing production equipment, and by accurately capturing the status changes of each, it contributes to reducing the risk of them.

Overview:

Due to revisions and additions to regulations, pumps used in water, sewerage, and drainage systems require flexible modifications and additional measurement points in their performance inspections.

 

In response to these changes in the environment and circumstances, the compact size of the Multi-Sensing Remote I/O Analog Sensing Unit VZ20X reduces the burden of expanding and reconstructing production and test equipment to fit the current installation environment.

Industries:
Overview:

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

Overview:

Since performance evaluation tests of inverter drive motors are susceptible to noise, equipment with high noise resistance is required. Also, if the number of measurement points is large, a multi-channel measuring instrument that satisfies the measurement will be costly.
The VZ20X is noise-resistant and safe for accurate DATA collection even on noise-prone measurement targets such as inverters.

Overview:

It is hard to go back and forth between the office floor and the test floor to check the bearing durability status.
That round trip time is wasteful and a heavy burden on man-hours. If you have more than one test floor, that's even more of a burden.
The VZ20X and GA10 make it possible to build simple monitoring systems. The system also enables remote monitoring of manufacturing and testing sites, contributing to reducing the burden on the site.

Overview:

DATA of several production equipment in a semiconductor manufacturing factory is currently being checked by field workers, and the checking is in a difficult situation. Therefore, there is a growing demand for centralized monitoring within the factory.
The VZ20X allows installation to take advantage of existing space.
In addition, the GA10 contributes to labor saving in the field by remote monitoring.

Overview:

DATA collection in product evaluation, such as for motors and inverters, may not be accurately measured due to the influence of noise received from the measuring object.
To ensure accurate DATA collection during evaluation and testing in such noise-prone environments, the VZ20X can safely be used in noisy environments with individual insulation between input channels.

Overview:

In the painting process of automobile parts, failure or corrosion of electrodes can lead to quality degradation.
In addition, the current lack of electrode condition monitoring has resulted in the replacement of electrodes in a short period of time, a problem that is extremely costly.
To address these issues, we monitor the deterioration of production facilities and contribute to the realization of maintenance tailored to the conditions of the equipment.

Overview:

Customers want to monitor the amount of electricity consumed by each production equipment in order to conserve energy in the factory, but it is not easy to install a measurement system in existing equipment, even from the installation and wiring conditions.
The VZ20X's compact size allows it to be installed for existing conditions. Accurate sensing also contributes to the visualization of power usage at production equipment.

Overview:

Customers want to improve maintenance by predicting failures of existing durable equipment. However, existing equipments do not have enough space, and it is not easy to increase the number of sensors needed to grasp the condition.
To address this issue, the VZ20X’s compact size allows it to be installed between equipments, and data collection can be easily monitored via Ethernet (Modbus/TCP).
 

Overview:

The PLC in the existing injection molding machine does not have a recording function, but you want to add a function to record the production DATA and equipment condition DATA. Customers also want to easily realize these functions.
In response to these requirements, the VZ20X performs DATA collection of PLC and analog sensors, and the GA10 provides on-site monitoring and recording to support safer operations.

Overview:

In recent years, customers of processing equipment used in food and pharmaceutical manufacturing have increasingly requested visualization of equipment conditions.
This is because we do not know the current state of our production facilities, and maintenance depends on individual experience and intuition.
By accurately collecting DATA with VZ20X and visualizing the status of equipment, it is possible to understand the current status and perform appropriate maintenance according to the condition of the equipment.
