Original Press Release:

Machine Monitoring and Control for Facilities Maintenance

In a joint development effort, Control Solutions, Inc. and Delta Technical Systems
announce the release of a Machine Monitoring and Control (MM&C) unit designed with
Eaton Cutler-Hammer components to address the increasing need for real-time machine
data collection and display that network with production management systems. This is
an especially useful device for facilities managers that want to track machine
maintenance data that is not available from their proprietary or closed control systems.

The MM&C Unit can interface with machine controls or sensors (Without
disturbing the current control scheme/control wiring) to display, trend and report vital
maintenance and production information to facility managers and has the ability to
connect machines over a network to an information server for important data collection,
analysis and reporting. Data can be transferred over a company wide or independent
network through secured wireless transmission, copper or fiber cabling media. Data
Collection devices such as bar code and RFID scanners are easily integrated into the
unit for capturing operator and work order information to increase manufacturing
productivity and eliminate costly recording errors.
