Environmental influences play a significant role in a factory: So, the humidity and air temperature can make an impact on sensitive technologies, the air quality and the air pressure can severely impair the functioning of the employees or even promote it.
These values are recorded in the Learning Factory 4.0 by the fischertechnik environmental sensor and communicated to the fischertechnik cloud via TXT controller to then be analysed on the dashboard.
We have provided additional information on environmental sensors for you over here.
An automated production facility demands the potential of remote monitoring: Highly specialised qualified people are often necessary to identify the source of error in a fault. The qualified person can see the entire facility through remote access, using the USB camera and locate the problem. The fault can be eliminated in this way in communication with the workers on site, without requiring the qualified person to be present locally.
You can find detailed information on fischertechnik USB camera here.
In order to visualise the faults in the modern production facility, traffic light-like lights are mounted: The current status of the Learning Factory 4.0 can be identified at the first glance. In this, the green light stands for undisturbed production, a yellow light for a fault and a red light for the stop of production.
Mounted centrally, the traffic light thus helps to quickly identify and rectify problems.
The communication between TXT controllers, fischertechnik cloud and the dashboard requires a connection to the internet, which is why the fischertechnik Learning Factory 4.0 has at its disposal its own WLAN router and hence, its own WLAN network.
The production module suction gripper can be oriented in the Learning Factory 4.0 through the calibration station in a very straightforward way and without any programming effort: A simple joystick controls the suction gripper. In this way, effective working is implemented, without having to take heavy time losses and expenses in troubleshooting.
