ACS Group, New Berlin, Wisconsin, has launched its new MiVue™ industrial IoT service. MiVue is a data collection and analysis system designed to start manufacturers on their Industry 4.0 journey. The system has been in development for the past two years and was designed to help customers predict and prevent problems before they occur.
The MiVue team used their industry knowledge of customer’s pain points to help develop the new MiVue solution, said Michael Gersmeyer, senior project manager – Controls & Industry 4.0. Customers can start their IoT journey by connecting one asset, such as a blender. Customers can then expand by connecting more equipment to the MiVue platform as future needs arise.
MiVue connectivity is available in three ways:
- New equipment: MiVue currently works with auxiliary equipment from AEC, Cumberland and Sterling, but will eventually work with all industry products. Ongoing product development will enable MiVue to work with injection molding machines, extruders and other machinery.
- Retrofit existing equipment: A connection kit is available that comes complete with everything needed to connect to existing equipment and begin gathering data.
- Custom integration projects: For manufacturers that want to optimize their factory with Industry 4.0 technology, MiVue can offer custom-build integrations.
