Report from Ewon Flexy
XLReporter with HMS Ewon Flexy produces reports and dashboards for the Internet of Things (IoT)Report on remote data using the Ewon Flexy
The Internet of Things (IoT) refers to a network of devices (Things) that collect and share data. In practice, this is made possible by extending the network connectivity of traditionally "dumb" or non-internet-enabled physical devices and everyday objects. These devices communicate and interact with each other over the Internet where they can be remotely monitored and controlled. The term Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is the industrial subset of IoT, the so-called Industry 4.0.The HMS Networks and SyTech partnership provides reports and dashboards from data anywhere in the world. It does this by using Ewon Flexy devices in remote locations to make data and alarms accessible to XLReporter. With the raw data, reports and dashboards are produced to:
Live data from the Ewon Flexy devices is accessed using the HMS M2Web interface of the Talk2M cloud which is provided with the device at no cost. XLReporter periodically collects the live data
directly from the remote PLC (which is connected to the device) and populates the report using "Report As You Run Technology". The data can optionally be stored to a database.
The transfer uses secure HTTPS with no public IP exposure.
The reports and dashboards are distributed by email, server, printer, XLReporter's web portal or a hosted third party cloud e.g., Azure.
History and Alarm data from the Ewon Flexy devices is accessed using the HMS DataMailBox of the Talk2M cloud which is provided with the device at no cost. XLReporter periodically collects
all new data from the cloud and consolidates the information to a local database or a database hosted on the cloud e.g., Azure. The transfer uses secure HTTPS with no public IP exposure.
With tags, history data and alarm data in a database, reports and dashboards are created automatically or on-demand and distributed by email, server, printer or XLReporter's web portal.
Produce reports automatically or on-demand from the Ewon Flexy DataMailbox storage. Retrieve sample values and "out-of-box" metrics on performance, statistics and runtimes that have been
filtered and scaled according to your requirement.
In addition to the standard set of metrics provided by the historian, XLReporter provides an extended set of calculations specific to industry.
Metrics are readily available without any scripting or programming. Simply select the tags of interest, the time frame and calculation e.g., average temperature over each hour of the day, and let XLReporter do the rest.
Managing alarm performance is one step towards improving your process.
Produce alarm dashboards and better understand alarm activity by setting filter and search criteria. Add historical data to the dashboard and learn if there are correlations between process deviations and alarm behavior.
