Main Functionalities

Runs on industrial gateways

Install an Actyx Industrial Gateway and connect to your asset via common protocols such as OPC UA, EUROMAP or Digital I/O.

Real-time data translation

Machine data is translated into meaningful business data according to the process and the outputs supported by the asset.

Log events and quantities

Log which state your asset was in and when. Track output quantity counters to understand what is being produced at which speed.

Quickly react to events

Get notified about downtime and other events to react quickly. Fight bottlenecks by bringing critical assets up to speed as rapidly as possible.

Enable data analysis

Send generated output and performance data to Actyx analytics applications to discover optimization potential and benchmark.

Common Use Cases

Immediately react to machine and process interruptions

As soon as a machine or process is interrupted supervisors are alerted via SMS or e-mail. The supervisor and his people can then immediately identify root-causes and implement counter-measures. Your machines and processes are back and running in no time and are generating revenue for your business.

Improve OEE through data-driven continuous improvement

Leverage highly accurate utilization of data for calculating OEE and deciding where to focus your continuous improvement efforts. Identify, for example, whether setups times or unexpected downtimes are more revelant in your case. Once you have implemented measures you can track the benefit as OEE improves over time.

No, our solutions always require an ERP interface. The reason is simple: We want you to benefit maximally and for your workers to think of the solution as more helpful than paper. Without an ERP interface, a solution would be slower, less accurate and, if necessary, just another parallel system. Our solutions are designed to make your ERP more powerful. Learn more about our interfaces: ERP connectors.

Actyx supports various hardware devices proven in industrial practice and expands the hardware portfolio at regular intervals. The solution design requires hardware from the portfolio. You cannot use your own hardware, otherwise we will not be able to ensure smooth operation. We also want to reduce the complexity and investment costs for you as much as possible. You can view our hardware selection here: supported hardware.

We’re not going to charge you for a single man day. From your side, we need minimal resources to coordinate processes or data models. An installation of an Actyx solution, including the implementation of the interface, takes up to 8 weeks. To learn more about timeline or resource requirements, contact us.

Thanks to modern technology, we can always monitor the health of all components of your installation and incorporate configuration and software adjustments. The Actyx software is standardized across all installations. This means that all customers receive coordinated updates and benefit from further developments of the apps.

No. The technology architecture is decentralized, that is, all components communicate directly with each other in a peer-to-peer fashion. There is no classic Client/Server architecture or dependencies of central components. This significantly increases robustness in terms of outages and performance.
This means that if the Internet goes down, the solution will continue reliably, we will only not be able to add any updates.

Of course, we have 24×7 support. If you are an Actyx customer, you can find the support here: support.actyx.io

Generally, we do not start any solution installation if we cannot estimate ROI after less than 6 months. For us, it is important for you to benefit starting on Day-1. CIP should be seen as an indirect, added value for future improvements. If you have more questions about our success delivery model, contact us.
