Clear visualization of real-time machine status that can amount to a 20% increase in productivity. Andon views can be conveniently grouped between plants, departments, lines, etc.
Daily, weekly, and monthly detailed records can be analyzed and evaluated to help identify operation trends and problems that were otherwise unnoticed.
View KPI to analyze important operation statistics using various summary conditions and quickly determine poorly operating equipment with performance ranking lists.
Makes it easy to recognize downtime tendencies and frequently occurring problems. Downtime causes can be recorded in each machine's operation status screen.
Set email or SMS alerts with detailed trigger conditions for quick reactions to stoppages and other time-sensitive occurrences. Send notifications to multiple personnel to guarantee transparency throughout the factory.
Automatically trigger video capture to record and analyze the problems that may have occurred as well as personnel response.
Connect to various other data hubs separate from the signal lights (PLC, HMI, etc.) through Web API. Such acquired data can be displayed in SIGNAL CHAIN in real-time.

Solution: mcframe SIGNAL CHAIN
KANEFUSA adopted SIGNAL CHAIN to improve operational efficiency at its main plant.
"We can readily discover problems in man-machine allocation, which had the single greatest effect."
Wireless Transmitters attached to PATLITE signal towers send real-time status to WD receivers connected to a server (or cloud), aggregating data to be viewed and analyzed in mcframe SIGNAL CHAIN.
ZigBee technology’s wireless hopping/routing functions and mesh topology make flexible and reliable wireless network configurations possible.
The new LED color module features a new, unique interior lens construction that achieves a fuller, more uniform 360° degree light output. Light color is vibrant with more emission area for reliable indication from further distances.
Features a rugged structure with the following ratings: IP65 / NEMA Type 4x, 13 withstands various environmental conditions, such as water and dust.
The LR modular system makes reconfiguring the color order simple with it's twist-and-lock design. Replacing and reconfiguring LED units or adding a buzzer module is easier than ever.
Paper-based maintenance reporting is difficult to track, open to errors, and time-consuming to compile. On top of that, the collected data may be difficult to interpret, and is no longer relevant for analysis.
Digitalizing maintenance work with SIGNAL CHAIN eliminates those challenges with real-time data entry and analysis. Don't miss changes in equipment condition, and anticipate repairs before unplanned downtime occurs.
Analysis of daily changes
and equipment failure trends.
Equipment records and trouble reports
shared by all departments.
