Control Machines With an App

Altoona, WI - Nanospark is a machine interface controller that manages attached equipment through the simple touch screen display of an iOS app. The controller's variety of digital and analog inputs and outputs effectively wire the user to nearly any machine or sensor.
Since Nanospark is operated through an app users may incorporate the tablet's features into their system. For instance, most tablets have a camera, microphone, and Wi-Fi connectivity. Any or all of these can be made to work in harmony with the wired components to expand a system or machine's feature set. A manufacturer can use Nanospark to be more in touch with equipment and improve processes, utilization of resources, and safety.
For example, they might use Nanospark’s scheduling feature to run equipment only when it’s needed, thus saving energy. This same feature can enhance production by having a key piece of equipment ready when employees arrive to begin their shift. Nanospark could turn that machine on early so it is running when the operator arrives.
If that same machine is forgotten to be turned off at the end of the day, the manufacturer can use Nanospark to remotely access their equipment through text messaging. This remote monitoring and control feature works anywhere a phone signal is available and can be added to any machine.
Nanospark also has an alerts feature that can be used both for emergency notifications and to streamline processes and increase productivity.
