CHICAGO–(COMMERCIAL THREAD) – Videojet Technologies, one of the world’s leading providers of coding and marking systems, has expanded its VideojetConnect digital service portfolio with the introduction of VideojetConnect Interchange, a programming interface that allows easy access to data that resides in most new and installed Videojet printers and lasers. Through a cloud-based connection, the VideojetConnect suite of unique data capture and analysis tools are designed to help maximize the availability of coding devices, track packaging operation performance and automate packaging operations. online inspection process.
With the introduction of VideojetConnect Exchange, manufacturers using standard programming methods can incorporate data captured by VideojetConnect applications into their automation and analysis systems. “We understand that for many manufacturers, having a single dashboard for each equipment vendor can be suboptimal, especially when they have already invested in a plant-wide IoT platform,” said said Bob Neagle, Commercial Director of Digital Products and Services for Videojet. “VideojetConnect Exchange offers the best of both worlds, as data from individual encoding devices can be processed and organized in the Videojet cloud, then easily integrated into other systems and dashboards that operations associates can use as part of the process. of their daily routines. ”
Using a REST API, IT and OT teams can create simple code to access the data they need. Web browser-based flow editors, such as Node RED, can be used to create the underlying calls and route the returned data. VideojetConnect Exchange is organized so that a common set of device status information can be accessed in one call to reduce overhead. Its developer web page provides working examples and the ability to browse and discover returned datasets and code samples that can be used for troubleshooting.
Encryption device information views can be customized and configured to reside in any third-party SaaS environment that supports IoT. Based on the typical role of the coding device in the production process, the possibilities for exploiting the data go beyond maintenance. Neagle added, “The status and number of coding devices can often be the best representation of real-time production, while the comparison of data from the main package and from the box coding devices can allow for the calculation. quality yields or highlight bottlenecks in a production.
VideojetConnect Exchange can be obtained in addition to the VideojetConnect base Remote service offer via an annual subscription of an API key.
