Remote management software added to metal detectors

30 October 2017

In fast paced, harsh or cramped food production and packing lines, where metal detectors are subject to rigorous washdowns and knocks from operatives, modern machine control panels can be vulnerable to damage which can result in unexpected maintenance downtimes. Fortress has solved this problem... 

Fortress has solved this problem by taking the high-risk items out of the harsh environment allowing operators to manage operations remotely using wireless communication on any portable device. The Remote Management Software (RMS) can connect Fortress metal detectors to a variety of mobiles, tablets and laptops.

Fortress intentionally didn’t create an app-based solution, as this would have to be hosted, refined and updated on Android and IOS operating systems. Instead, customers can log in and access the system via a local website built within the detector. This, in turn, means that the detector also has the potential to be accessed from any location. 

Reports can be exported on demand, in Excel or PDF format to provide fully traceable quality assurance information, detailing what and when an event happened on a specific metal detector.
Activity reports can be selected for a specific production line and/or time period. For record keeping, event and performance information can be stored securely and remotely. Each event is automatically time stamped to comply with Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) food safety management systems and principles.

An unlimited number of Fortress metal detectors can be connected wirelessly using a powerful back-end SQL to monitor activity and generate reports.
