Cement plants have Process Lines with PLC or DCS. They need to capture process insights and provide a system for real-time monitoring. However, most plants don’t have a unified data portal for monitoring.
Cement plants also need to generate alerts to users, and provide real-time monitoring of parameters through a mobile app.
The iLens Gateway Device facilitates the acquisition of data from the PLC. Following this, the data is sent to the iLens central server for real-time data monitoring and the generation of alerts. With iLens' unique SCADA feature, the live parameter data is read from the plant’s PLCs. These SCADA screens are available on the mobile app.
Parameters can be configured in iLens to generate alerts when an equipment’s threshold is reached, or its process function deviates. The iLens solution thereby facilitates the configuration of parameters to define the operating range, threshold alerts, and parameter correlations.
