A CraneSCADA Control Panel
A Scada enabled Pendant or Radio Remote Control
A SCADA Control Panel.
Advanced Data Pendant
A natural extension after generating such huge amounts of data is to save and act on the data. The IOT enabled craneSCADA pendant is truly a revolutionary technology where, data generated from the pendant in the form of commands and the data generated from all the components of the crane is saved on very highly secure onboard computer . The data from each crane is then sent to a very highly secure online web server where it is saved.This data can be viewed from anywhere in the world within 5 seconds from the time it was generated on the crane. The user can log in to cranescada.com where he or she can select crane.Once the crane is selected from the drop down menu , you have successfully connected to your crane from the internet. Data from the crane is directly transmitted from the onboard computer to your web page through many layers of security.
Benefits of having an Indsutrial IOT system for cranes
Crane SCADA let you visualize the real time status of the crane as well as keep record of every operations of the crane . It enables you to remotely monitor , analyze and control your crane from anywhere through internet and make your crane smarter.
Graphical representation of each parameters such as voltage, current , frequency, Control panel temperature , lifted weight, motor, motor brake, remote/pendant etc. of the crane makes you easy to monitor.
Easy & Simple
By Observing data of crane typically temperature, vibration and error code indicate the crane working condition which is really difficult to inspect manually.
Collecting data from each equipment of the crane such as busbar, current collector, control panel, motor, motor break , gear box etc you can quickly spot the quality issues by setting the threshold point.
You can continuously monitor and infer equipment status , health and performance to detect issues in real-time knowing when equipment needs attention, helps you plan maintenance work, keep the spare parts of equipments and avoid unplanned breakdown. By predictive maintenance analytics, equipments lasts longer and increase worker safety.
At any risky condition or abnormal behavior of the crane user will receive alter SMS and Email and user can take corrective action or can stop the crane over the air.Get alerts for Hoisting Operating Hours,Critical condition of brakes, measured braking distance,overload,maximum slip,maximum speed,Emergency Stop.
Over the Air Update (OTA)
Your Cranes software will be update over-the-air.This will allow us to spread new features and better analytics.
How does CraneSCADA work?
An EOT crane has 1000s of small parts.They all work in conjunction so that the crane can lift heavy objects. CraneScada monitors all the parts of your crane, sends that data to very highly secure Server owned by CraneScada . Once you login to cranescada.com , you can see the list of all of your cranes, along with each cranes data. Since an eot crane is made up of several mechanical, hydraulic, electronic and electrical parts.being such a complex piece of machinery,a lot can go wrong. A malfunction of an eot crane can lead to very severe accidents when being operated. Cranescada monitors the health of the eot crane with the help of a variety of sensors. Almost 50 parameters of the crane are being recorded every second. parameters such as vibrations,input voltage,speed,operator commands, temperature, brake oil,etc are being recorded. Thats a lot of data. All of this data us fed to the onboard computer which computes the health of the crane and transmits this data to one of our online highly secure database.Advanced data analytics is done on each of the parameters to compute the actual health of the crane.This creates a huge amount of data being recorded each second. when the crane owner logs in to cranescada.com, the owner can immediately see the status of the crane in real time. Preventive action is automatically taken by the crane computer in the event of an anomaly.Whenever a big anomaly happens, it is actually a series of small Anomalies which have been overlooked.
How Can I Benefit from using CraneScada?
95% of all problems related to EOT cranes show a signal before hand.Since , no one knows or is interested in that signal , the problem worsens and there is a breakdown of your crane. CraneScada helps in making sure that you are proactive with your crane instead of being reactive.In a normal situation, when a crane breaks down due to an electrical system failure or a mechanical failure , the factory then reacts to the failure which leads to a lot of time and money lost. Instead, with cranescada you can come to know about a failure in advance , and perform maintenance activities before a breakdown.This concept of being proactive with your industrial machinery is called predictive maintenance.
Why develop industrial IOT platform for industrial cranes?
Eot cranes are electric overhead cranes used in all industrial factories all over the world. They are used to lift materials within a factory from point a to point b. All eot cranes are manually operated with the help of wired pendant control or radio remote controls. Since eot cranes can lift loads ranging from 100 kgs to 500 tons,there is an inherent safety hazard.
Future of CraneSCADA
1 Industrial crane can generate more than 1 Gb of data per month. Imagine having 100+ cranes generating humongous amount of data. This data lake contains a lot of hidden patterns regarding the health of a crane.the future of crane scada will solely be focused on understanding these data patterns. Each crane will now have the ability to learn from each other.For example :- Suppose an EOT crane in the city of pune is reporting a failure of the mains transformer. These exact data patterns which eventually lead to the loss of the mains transformer can be understood. Once this pattern is understood by the online data analytics engine, a proactive action can be taken on all the cranes generating this exact pattern in all locations around the country. So instead of being reactive after a breakdown of the mains transformer, all the users of cranescada which are generating the exact same pattern before the failure of the mains transformer can be informed of the impending failure days before it happens, instead of after many days.
What does craneSCADA mean?
CraneSCADA is a combination of two words.
Crane - A machinery which can lift materials from point A to point B.
SCADA -A famous acronym for Supervision, Control And Data Acquisition.
