Production monitoring made simple

NewElec-308-03-2014It is often necessary for production departments to establish the extent of real work performed during a shift or period of time. The fact that a particular motor was running during a certain period does not necessarily mean that work was being done. In this situation the NewCode motor protection and control relay provides the production manager with a clear picture of how a machine was loaded during a specific time.The production manager simply utilises the free NewElec software to read the “‘statistic”’ page of the NewCode relay that will provide him with the necessary information such as :% time the motor ran on load; % time the motor ran unloaded; and % time the motor stood idle. These statistics can provide an overall situation awareness with regards to production time utilisation and can go a long way in identifying sources of difficulty.
