Auditing Sensors Service - SoftNoze has seen many applications where damage and downtime can be avoided. In fact we can visit your plant, look at each and every installation, performing and submitting a confidential audit. Outcome includes a complete tally of each cell/machine/line, whereby input numbers, sensors and cable types, and mounting configurations are documented. This along with recommendations based on over twenty years of focused experience, and also based on over 1 million sensor installations. The client's sensors are identified, documenting possible future problems, or solutions/ideas to any current problems, i.e. where sensors and or cables are continually damaged and or destroyed. Some cases are complex, and could be determined by machine design issues, yet others are maintenance-related and others might just be simple training or awareness issues. Please contact us to today Sensor Audit.
