With the SmartEYE™ Dry-Box Market-Ready Kit, you can monitor your Dry-Boxes (modern or legacy) 24/7, and send all of the information to your network or directly to your ERP System. SmartEYE™ can retrieve any sort of data from any model of machine no matter how old, making your legacy machines just as efficient and “smart” as modern equipment. With SmartEYE™, there is no upfront cost (with subscription service), no interruption to production, and the system is installed and online in a matter of weeks.

The SmartEYE™ Dry Box Market-Ready Kit measures…

  • Dry Box Utilization
  • Job Duration
  • Box Temperature
  • Box Humidity
  • Box Air Quality Index (AQI)
  • Outside Environmental Variables such as Temperature and Humidity, which can impact drying performance
  • Number of Door Opens, which affects Boc environmental Conditions and, thus, Drying Cycles
  • Set Up Time, Hold Time, Cool Down Time
  • Number of Units Used in Each Box/Job
  • Number of Units Yielded Per Job
  • Costs Per Unit (Material & Energy Cost)

Moreover, with over 1800+ sensor options, the system can be customized to monitor and report any KPI you desire.

Edge Computers with Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning capabilities allow SmartEYE™ to build machine profiles. Deviations and alerts can be sent to any computer or cell phone. Moreover, Edge Computing eliminates the need for the Cloud; provided, we also provide Cloud access via Microsoft Azure as an option.

This small NEMA box houses SmartEYE™. Data from both wired and wireless sensors is aggregated to the SmartEYE™ “Edge Node” and processed locally on the Edge for real time analytics and machine models. Moreover, if the Cloud option is selected, this data is sent to the Cloud for analytics with a larger data set and integration with the company’s ERP/MRP system.

Hierarchical Management Dashboards show data at the machine, line, cell, plant and enterprises levels.  Data can also be viewed by the second, minute, hour, month, year or any other time frame desired. Management can start from the Power BI report below, and drill down to the individual machine dashboards, and further down to the individual sensor data dashboards…all presenting real-time information. KPIs and analytics are done in real-time on the local dashboards showing alarms and situational data by individual machine.

Enterprise-level data such as energy usage, machine availability, utilization level, efficiency and predictive maintenance data is also readily available.

In fact, the data collected by SmartEYE™ is so fine-grained that process, resource, equipment and/or environmental deviations can be specifically targeted in real-time. Having such detailed data also assists in upgrading equipment predictive maintenance programs, as well as focused troubleshooting relating to equipment. Moreover, because SmartEYE™ can integrate the data from a customer’s entire enterprise, it allows the customer to compare the efficiency of different machines, resources and/or facilities. This integrated data also allows the user to run simulations to show the systemic effects of changes to schedules, resources, product quality, product yield and/or production processes before such changes are implemented.

SmartEYE™ has an easy-to-use User App, which can be learned in less than an hour. By simply answering a few prompted questions, the operator provides all the information required for comprehensive data analytics.
