Updated : December 2020
B&R, a leading industrial automation solutions provider from Austria, has developed a textile factory automation system called Edge Controller to enable factory operators to monitor all energy sources in a single system. With EnMon (Energy monitoring) solution as an integral part, it enables real-time energy evaluation across all processes, while providing support for continuous process improvement. It also enables factory owners to perform regular energy audits.
Edge Controller also has another monitoring solution called ConMon (Condition monitoring) which helps identify potential sources of malfunction and damage in advance, to enable maintenance team schedule corrective actions.
The solution is cost-effective and thus enables SMEs to efficiently manage their energy consumption throughout the process through a single system, while also implementing suitable solutions for a sustainable environment. Its condition monitoring data enables reduction in mean time for maintenance while also maintaining the life of process equipment.
The company displayed its advanced automation solutions at the Automation Expo 2019 in Mumbai.
