Data logging and communication functions are orchestrated by our proprietary software, meticulously installed on a designated PC. This software boasts tailor-made adaptability, meticulously designed to cater to the unique nuances of each application. The exported data can be meticulously archived or subjected to comprehensive processing, aligning with Statistical Process Control (SPC) protocols and facilitating rigorous quality analysis.

This synergy between hardware and software within the data logging ecosystem is strategically configured to initiate and operate autonomously upon the machine's startup. This self-sufficiency ensures a streamlined and turn-key experience. Data collection is synchronized with the conclusion of each automated cycle, meticulously stored in a versatile data file format such as CSV, readily accessible through ubiquitous document readers, including the likes of Microsoft Excel. While the data files find their primary residence on the local PC hard drive, customers are empowered with remote and local retrieval options. Moreover, data files seamlessly integrate with diverse data management strategies, gracefully accommodating local storage devices or cloud-based repositories as per individual preferences.

The spectrum of data this system encapsulates is expansive, encompassing various facets of the assembly process. From process limits to intricate formation data like force, distance, dwell time, and pressure to exhaustive testing and cycle data, temporal markers, part, job identifiers, and even employee or shift particulars - the breadth of data harvested is only confined by the limits of application requirements. Whether derived from analog sensors as raw data or generated through PLC logic as calculated values, the data can embody diverse formats, including floating-point, integer, ASCII strings, or discrete binary indicators indicative of pass/fail outcomes.
