Remote monitoring software for sorters

04 April 2016

Bühler has introduced a new remote monitoring system designed to provide access to online system data, allowing users to keep track of the performance of their optical sorters via a PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone. 

Food processors require accurate information quickly, wherever they be. Information such as machine performance, alerts to faults and everyday sorting data is valuable information for engineers and this data can be used to optimise plant performance and maximise profitability.

Safety regulations also have a big impact on the way that food is processed and total control over the performance of sorting equipment coupled with accurate, detailed audit trails, is essential for optimum sorting performance and full traceability.

Traditionally, performance of each optical sorter has been monitored and analysed individually. Bühler’s SORTEX AnywarePro software, however, collates all the relevant data, such as sorter status, machine performance, fault alerts or component lifetime indicators to significantly aid processors in making better informed plant management decisions.

With the new system processors are able to remotely monitor their optical sorters at any time of day to access real-time data from the plant and pre-empt problems.

SORTEX Anyware Pro is now available on the SORTEX S Ultravision and will soon be launched on other ranges within the Bühler optical sorting portfolio.
