Benefits of DATALOG On Line Monitoring System for Knitting

Production, Stoppage & Efficiency Monitoring

  • Integrated information of all types of looms in one software
  • Provision to view all information on Machine Terminal fitted on every Loom
  • Long Stop reason can be entered on the loom
  • Web based software & hence easy to access the data from within or outside the mill (during travel)
  • Mobile Version of Software available
  • Automatic Weaver Planning
  • Reduce Machine Down Time by continuous monitoring
  • Continuous Monitoring of Breaks per Hour & Minutes per Stop for Warp, Weft and other stops
  • Compare Machines running with same Style to identify low performing machine and finetune
  • Compare Weavers to identify low performing weaver and train for better result
  • Efficiency Trend Graph to analyse Loom behaviour and finetune for better Efficiency
  • Stop Diagram to find out repeated stops, too many stops and finetune the Loom
  • Bring Low performing Loom at par with the best
  • Exception Reports can be called for any parameter to analyse the weak areas
  • Snap Study on every parameter
  • Macro to Micro Analysis of any parameter can be called for long term analysis (Year – Month – Day)
  • Easy Interface with any ERP
  • Beam Planning Reports, Un Assigned Beam Reports are available
  • Roll Doff Reports are available
  • Crimp Reports are available

Air Consumption Monitoring

  • CFM of each Loom is monitored continuously to provide
  • Instantaneous CFM
  • Average CFM
  • Cumulative CFM
  • CFM / Meter of fabric produced
  • Air Consumption Report in Text & Graph for
  • Loom Wise
  • Shift Wise
  • Style Wise
  • Shed Wise
  • By Monitoring CFM Consumed – Cost per Meter can be analysed
  • Optimise Speed vs CFM consumed
  • Prevent Avoidable stops / Breakdowns

Power Monitoring

  • Reduce Power Bills (Cost)
  • Arrive at Cost / Meter of fabric produced
  • Speed vs Power Consumed
  • Quality of Power
  • Monitor Health of Motor and other related hardware

Humidity & Temperature Monitoring

  • Analyse RH & Temp. variations at different points inside the shed
  • Optimise RH & Temp. for best Shed Running Condition

Hardware and Software Configuration

Machine Terminal:

The Machine Terminal comes with an in-built microprocessor, a user friendly keyboard and display for ease of operations. It is installed at each knitting machine control most of the routine functions and communicate in real time with the central computer which provides large-scale data log.

Multiplexer:

The multiplexer(abbreviated as MUX) collects the data from the Machine Terminals installed at each knitting machines. Multiplexer (MUX) is a device allowing multiple low-speed input signals to be selected, combined and transmitted at a higher speed single line signal to the centralized computer.

Transponder:

The transponder used in wireless communication that collects the data from each Machine Terminals. A transponder is a wireless communications, monitoring, or control device that picks up and automatically responds to an incoming signal. The transponder can transmit and receive signal.

Software:

The computer on which the Online monitoring system software is installed, collects the data from the Machine Terminals through the Multiplexer and generates various reports. The software acquires the data from the looms and arranges in well-structured reports, which can be easily interpreted. The reports can be called through the Menu Driven User Friendly Software. GUI nature of the software eliminates the complicated keystrokes and codes. It has the facility to transfer the data to an ERP system. The software can be installed on various nodes across the plant.
