Protocol & data bridge Gamma-Flash

In today’s production facilities, machines generate a large amount of data using sensors and actuators. With the innovative Gamma Flash, this data can be used effectively to gain important information about the condition and performance of machines.

The Gamma Flash offers a wide range of applications in various industries such as manufacturing, logistics, energy supply, building automation or environmental monitoring. It enables the recording, control and monitoring of machine data regardless of your specific data protocol used by the machines or equipment.

So what is the Gamma Flash?

The Gamma Flash is a protocol & data bridge, also known as a hardware data switch, protocol converter, protocol translator, data bridge, middleware or data adapter. It converts the recorded data from different machines or applications with different data protocols into a uniform format. This allows easy reading, exchange and further processing of the data.

Examples of use

  • Production machines in the manufacturing industry: CNC machines, cutting machines, presses, injection moulding machines, etc.
  • Packaging machines: Filling machines, labelling machines, cartoners, etc.
  • Transport and conveying machines: Conveyor belts, forklifts, cranes, packaging machines, conveyor systems, etc.
  • Facilities and machines in food processing: Mixing machines, filling machines, sorting machines, etc.
  • Printing machines: Offset printing machines, digital printers, flexo printers, etc.
  • Machines in building industry: Concrete mixers, compaction machines, shakers, etc.
  • Textile machines: Weaving machines, spinning machines, knitting machines etc.

Mode of operation

The data is transmitted in a wireless way via radio transmission technologies such as LoRaWAN, WLAN, G4, G5 or Bluetooth, but data can also be received. The Gamma Flash performs the task of converting the captured data into a uniform format so that it can be read or further processed by other machines, systems or applications.

The collected data can be stored in any cloud, such as Microsoft Azure IoT, Google IoT Core, Amazon AWS IoT, etc. This makes the data available everywhere and provides a reliable and scalable infrastructure for storing and processing large amounts of data. At the same time the data collected in real time can be visualised and analysed using a dashboard. This enables you to have an immediate overview of the current status and performance of your machines and to quickly react to any changes or problems.

Converting the collected data into a consistent format enables seamless integration and analysis to provide valuable insights to your operations.

Practical placements

  • Energy and utility companies: Optimise resources, identify bottlenecks and reduce energy costs by monitoring and analysing energy consumption.
  • Building automation: Improve energy efficiency, safety and comfort in buildings by collecting and evaluating data from sensors and control systems
  • Grinding machines: Monitor in real time important parameters such as grinding speed, pressure, vibrations and temperatures. Analyse the performance of your machine, identify problems at an early stage and avoid bottlenecks.
  • Paper presses: Control your paper press and increase productivity in the pressing process. Record, monitor and control relevant parameters such as pressure, temperature, humidity and speed of the machine with the Gamma Flash. Proactive intervention based on the data can prevent downtime.
