Zyter Smart Factories Debuts
May 17, 2021
Smart Factories is an end-to-end intelligent solution that connects factory
floor machinery, workers, and building systems using the latest Internet of
Things (IoT) technology devices on Zyter’s digital transformation platform.
Zyter Smart Factories is a component of the Zyter SmartSpaces IoT platform.
Trusted by Qualcomm® to be the foundation of its Smart Cities Accelerator
Program, the Zyter SmartSpaces Platform breaks down silos of information by
integrating and consolidating data from IoT devices and applications in a
Zyter Smart Factories gives manufacturers a 360-degree view of what is happening
across the entire factory floor using a network of connected devices and
sensors, including safety equipment worn by workers. IoT sensors send alerts and
notifications on worker safety issues, authorization breaches, machinery
utilization, and asset monitoring to the Zyter Smart Factories dashboard. Zyter
Smart Factories translates this data to analytics to help manufacturers
understand factory productivity and safety metrics, as well as gain insight into
other metrics related to factory management, operations and efficiency
“Zyter Smart Factories meets the increasing demand from manufacturers for IoT
technologies that help make the factory run more efficiently,” said Sanjay Govil,
founder and CEO of Zyter, Inc. “With the analytics gained from complete
visibility of the factory floor, machinery monitoring, and worker tracking,
manufacturers can make more informed decisions to make their factories smarter,
safer, and more productive.”
The key features of Zyter Smart Factories include:
Floor Productivity – Provides a continuous stream of real-time data from IoT
devices on machinery, material and workers to enable factory managers to
optimally plan production runs as well as monitor and quickly address events and
incidents to avoid safety issues or loss of productivity.
Worker Safety and Tracking – Detects and alerts
whenever workers remove hard hats, safety goggles, and other gear and also if
workers enter unauthorized areas. Zyter Smart Factories can also send machine
malfunction safety alerts to notify supervisors and on-site medical personnel to
preempt any potential worker injury.
Asset Tracking and Utilization – Provides real-time
data on usage of high-value machinery in terms of running times, usage
efficiency, energy consumption, and more. Zyter Smart Factories also has asset
tracking capability to quickly locate manufacturing materials or mobile
equipment, and send alerts if assets are being moved without authorization.
Ready for 5G connectivity, Zyter Smart Factories enables
manufacturers of all sizes to easily upgrade from legacy hard-wired IT and Wi-Fi
systems to a private 5G-enabled IT or cellular network that supports multiple
IoT devices. Zyter partners with Qualcomm and other leading telecom companies to
provide manufacturers with access to enhanced connectivity services.
