OnCare.Health Vorecon from Voith
With OnCare.Health Vorecon, Voith presents a new data diagnostics system that goes one step further than conventional machine protection systems do. It learns, monitors, and performs diagnostics in real time. By means of typical signal patterns, the system first learns the reference state of the machine. Then it continuously monitors, records, analyzes, and evaluates the relevant signals.
With the help of signal and trend analyses, the system predicts the future behavior of the machine. Significant changes are recognized and reported long before an alarm is triggered or a fault occurs. However, if faults do arise, their root causes can be quickly and precisely analyzed and eliminated based on the data.
An easily accessible and user-friendly interface helps the user to keep an eye on all operating data, times, and states of the Vorecon. The user thus receives in-depth knowledge about the machine’s behavior under various conditions. From the data in OnCare.Health Vorecon, Voith generates a monthly service report containing extensive performance diagnostics for the machine, including a servicing and maintenance recommendation. This not only ensures optimal stocking of spare parts but also allows service to be scheduled based on the machine state and not according to a fixed cycle. OnCare.Health Vorecon thus helps to increase the availability of the relevant drivetrains and at the same time lowers maintenance costs.
OnCare.Health Vorecon can be easily installed locally and connected via fieldbus to existing IT infrastructures. An internet connection is not required. Data are also not saved in a cloud. The communication channels meet the highest security standards required for critical infrastructures.
