iSense™ Melt Shop Equipment Data Visualization Systems bring your equipment together like never before – providing digital content at your fingertips.
Bringing Industry 4.0 Closer to You
The Inductotherm iSense™ System brings Industry 4.0 closer to your melt shop via Ethernet using standard industrial protocols where network servers collect, store and distribute the equipment data. The application server provides client access for workstations, mobile phones and wireless tablets using a common web-based interface and common browsers. The iSense™ System’s server lives at your location, which keeps data secure and accessible through web clients. Simply provide a Virtual Private Network (VPN) and allow your staff to monitor equipment from anywhere, anytime on the secure network.
This technology is the only application on the market today that allows you to access nearly every detail of your induction melting equipment in one place — accessible anytime, anywhere. You can see your melt shop overview and relevant data with ease using Inductotherm’s virtual view. Each piece of Inductotherm’s technologically advanced equipment is visually represented with in-depth and color coded information. These colorful graphics show your equipment’s health status and provide access to diagnostics, historical trends and analytics. Watch live events, alarms and conditions unfold before your eyes with interactive graphics and switch between multiple furnaces and equipment with a single touch.
