Mitsubishi Electric to Launch iQ Edgecross Software

19-Apr-2018 Intellasia | BusinessWire | 9:10 AM Print This Post

Will leverage proprietary AI technologies to increase production-shop
efficiency and quality through enhanced preventive maintenance

Electric Corporation
(TOKYO:6503) announced today that it will
launch a real-time data analyzer and four data collectors sequentially
from the end of June 2018 as additions to its iQ Edgecross
edge-computing software lineup. iQ Edgecross products support the
Edgecross open software platform used to integrate factory
automation (FA) and information technology (IT). The real-time
data-analyzer is software equipped with proprietary artificial
intelligence (AI) for data analysis and diagnostics, which customers
will use to strengthen preventive maintenance and quality in their
productions shops. The data collectors will enable easy, high-speed
collection of data. Together, the new products will improve efficiency
by strengthening edge computing in Mitsubishi Electric’s [email protected]
integrated FA solutions, which customers use to reduce total costs of
development, production and maintenance.

Key Features

1) Real-time data analyzer with AI strengthens
preventative maintenance

  • Performs real-time analysis and diagnosis of production systems under
    operation, using one software instead of separate software for
    different purposes (i.e., offline analysis and real-time diagnostics).
  • Improves the accuracy of detecting equipment anomalies during
    real-time diagnostics using similar waveform recognition technology—a
    Mitsubishi Electric Maisart1 AI technology—to learn and
    recognize data, such as sensor waveform patterns.
  • Implements preventive maintenance and quality improvement without
    additional programming. In the event of problems, in addition to using
    AI technologies, factor analysis has been simplified with statistical
    diagnostic tools, such as the Mahalanobis-Taguchi method (detects
    differences from normal operations using correlations between data
    sets) and multivariable regression analysis for data.

2) Factory floor data easily collected at high speed
using four types of data collectors

  • Easily collects data from equipment and devices through data
    collectors that support SLMP, OPC UA and MTConnect.
  • Data collectors are fully compatible with the CC-Link IE Field Network
    for high-speed data collection (up to 1ms) at production sites to
    assure highly accurate equipment control.
