Tweet function helps boost machine availability

05 June 2017

B&R continues to expand its mapp Technology software framework. The new Tweet function allows a machine application to send information via text message or email. The increased intelligence boosts machine availability.

The new software block mapp Tweet allows a machine application to send text messages and emails triggered by specific events. Set up with just a few clicks, mapp Tweet can also be connected to other mapp components which enables the mapp AlarmX component, for example, to automatically notify a maintenance technician when an alarm requires immediate action. mapp Tweet can supplement the message with additional information, such as troubleshooting instructions that allow the technician to quickly and efficiently resolve the cause of the alarm. This is an effective way to achieve a targeted reduction in machine downtime.

If the service technician is not on site, it is possible to quickly connect, via B&R's remote maintenance solution, in order to run diagnostics, adjust parameters and resolve the error in a timely fashion.
