INDUSTRY 4.0 SYSTEM FOR AMS WASTE COMPACTORS
Some models of waste compactors from AMS s.p.a., a company based in Barberino Tavarnelle (Fi), will henceforth be equipped with the Industry 4.0 system of remote diagnostics, interconnection and satellite geolocalization ALMECdiag.
This system is hinged on two elements: the ALMECdiag Devices, which are the devices (IoT Gateways) to be installed on the machines and the ALMECdiag Portal platform, on which are created the portals of the client companies that will use and will be able to make their customers use, as a web interface with the devices installed on the machines.
The ALMECdiag Industry 4.0 system allows to do on the machines: telemetry, consultation and modification of parameters, software updates, data storage, usage data and forecasts, movement tracking, corrective maintenance, preventive maintenance and predictive maintenance.
In the case of AMS, the ALMECdiag system will work with a Siemens plc and a Wachendorff gateway (converter) Profinet/CANopen, thanks to a special firmware customization developed by ALMEC on the ALMECdiag Device.
