Use Steinert.view to collect and visualise data to create new value

Steinert.view is a flexible, open and reliable monitoring solution for Steinert sensor-based sorting machines. It gives users insight into the availability and output of individual machines, allowing them to learn more about the condition of their applications or sorting facility. For the first time ever, this detailed machine data is accessible at any time and from any location.

Designed as a mobile-first app, Steinert.view provides users with a quick overview of the key performance and output data on the move. At the same time, complex process technologies can also be visualised. Filter functions mean that users never lose track of things and can easily identify areas where problems are arising or potential lies untapped.

Steinert.view resulted from working in close collaboration with customers and extensive testing. Not only is it easy for novices to get to grips with, it also offers added value for advanced users. Backwards compatibility means that the solution can be integrated into existing systems and open interfaces provide new opportunities.

Steinert.view is available as an app on all common platforms and screen sizes for all new Steinert sensor sorting units. Upgrades are available for machines constructed since 2018.

Monitoring output

Rapid access to a multitude of metrics helps Steinert.view to structure a large number of processes and to work more cost-effectively. The unavoidable approach used to date of walking through the entire facility can now be replaced with precise interventions and efficient deployment of staff.

Problems can be proactively countered by making changes to metrics such as belt cover or compressed air consumption. Before service staff even get to the machine, they know what work they can expect to be doing and can use mobile access to get other staff started without delay. This cuts downtimes and improves speed and mobility.

Steinert.view can also assist with improvements to sorting performance. Changing the grain size distribution can impact on the product unit as can material distribution. Comparing nominal and actual values in a graph reveals where action needs to be taken right away.

Historical data shows the effectiveness of measures or produces benchmarks of different shifts so that the user can get close to a machine’s optimum operating point. But the data collected not only provides insight into Steinert machines themselves.

For example, changing the material composition can allow conclusions to be drawn about the efficiency of an upstream screen or the quality of a batch. This produces operating transparency across the entire system for improving operating output and optimisation of resources.

 Your data is in safe hands

Open protocols, international standards and regular updates from the technical basis for Steinert.view. In addition to the MQTTS protocol for transporting messages between devices over TLS, data-at-rest is also encrypted thanks to the 256-bit AES, using Microsoft Azure as the cloud service provider. Steinert is therefore joining the extensive list of Azure users who represent 95% of the Fortune 500 companies.

As a partner, Microsoft has invested billions in data security and has more certification than any other cloud provider, making it the number one for data protection, so you can be sure that sensitive customer data is only used as anticipated.

Designed as a pure monitoring solution, Steinert.view provides no scope for controlling the machine or system. So you can rest assured that using the app will not affect production or occupational safety on site.

Creating new value

Steinert.view provides a data-based perspective for sourcing resources from primary and secondary raw materials. When combined with its sensor-based sorting machines, Steinert provides advanced technologies for searching for, finding and sorting resources and thereby new opportunities for overcoming a scarcity of resources and for a circular economy.
