Features and benefits that provide immediate return on investment
We understand the challenges that manufacturing and industry face. Therefore we have created the best possible remote monitoring solution to address these needs. Our solutions overcome the limitations of battery-powered sensors, installation challenges and coverage gaps in monitoring. Furthermore our equipment sensors even work well in remote areas with little infrastructure in place. As a result, our sensors are a confident choice for industry leaders and Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM's).
Affordable monitoring and cost savings
Our affordable solutions provide more monitoring capabilities for your money. Our customisation feature makes it possible to gain all of the information you need through one sensor. In addition to a low-cost investment, there are several upfront costs that our solutions eliminate altogether - the cost to hire an electrical engineer, costs to install a power source and costs to replace batteries. Consequently, this results in a faster return on investment.
Easy to install and retrofitted
We have extensively evaluated the practical needs of engineers and included colour coordinated connectors, adapters and fittings for many different requirements. This allows any employee to easily install the sensors and have them up and running with ease. Our equipment sensors can be installed to legacy equipment, new machines, over multiple plants and in places with little infrastructure. Furthermore, tools provided allow our sensors to be retrofitted to machines and equipment regardless of its age, size or complexity.
Whole system monitoring approach
Our whole system monitoring solutions are designed to take what you are already doing and fill in coverage gaps. Seeing your system as a whole or individual machines working in relation to one another provides insight into unforeseen interactions and pinpoints problems in real time. Our monitoring software includes record keeping capabilities, allowing engineers to compare data over time, detect inconsistencies and trial new ideas and improvements.
Energy harvesting technology
Our equipment sensors are truly wireless and benefit from energy harvesting technology. They are battery-free, maintenance-free and provide always-on data collection. Energy harvesting sensors need only the tiniest bit of energy to harvest. This energy can be found even in remote places with little infrastructure including tunnels, roof tops and installed equipment that is far-away. Consequently, these are the exact places that could greatly benefit from monitoring but where you don’t need to worry about changing batteries.
Compatible with other systems and accessible data
Plug-and-play modules also support your existing devices, integrating inputs from existing analogue and digital sensors into a common remote access and monitoring solution. Each sensor collects a wealth of valuable readings. Straightaway the data is organised in an easy-to-read format which can be viewed on Smartphones, tablets or PC's. Furthermore, all of the data is displayed on one centralised dashboard. Most importantly equipment monitoring is done remotely, keeping engineers working instead of meter reading.
Article: 'The Smart Factory monitor designed for engineers' dives into The Manufacturer’s Annual Manufacturing Report 2020 where several roadblocks exist for companies trying to embrace Smart Factory technologies. These include misaligned systems and digital transformation fatigue. DCO Systems are meeting these challenges head-on by making Smart Factory tools that fulfil the requirements of the engineer.

Article: 'Maximise data collection with whole system monitoring' tackles the challenge of spending time and money on a problem only to discover it was not the root cause. Whole system monitoring works to eliminate guesswork, pinpoint the true issue and maximise data collection. By taking on the bold approach, engineers can uncover the costliest and most concealed problems. There are 3 compelling reasons of why this approach works. READ MORE
Article: '4 Immediate benefits of using energy harvesting sensors' explores the question - Are all equipment sensors the same? No, compared with plug-in or battery-operated sensors, energy harvesting sensors punch above their weight. As manufacturing industries implement the Industrial Internet of Things, self-powered sensors are a rising star. Discover the benefits of energy harvesting sensors and why you should make the switch.
