What is innius?

Retrofit machinery up to Smart Factory level

innius enables you to retrofit existing machinery up to smart factory level, one step at a time. Machine data can then be enriched with manual and virtual sensors, by defining thresholds, shifts, tasks, and integrating Enterprise Application data. Insights are then made accessible in real-time via apps and dashboards, and actionable by alerts. This enables Condition-Based-Maintenance practises and boosts production target security. OEE, Batch, Downtime and Shift reports mean decision making no longer needs to be based on instincts, allowing you to improve productivity, energy efficiency, quality and reduce waste.

Why choose innius?

Make better investment decisions

innius provides historical and current machine performance information. This valuable data provides strong support to business managers in making critical investment decisions, such as when certain parts need to be replaced or when a complete machine needs to be replaced.

Easier collaboration

One of the great advantages of innius is that it is a platform that allows you to communicate and share documents or media directly, reliably and securely. It helps to facilitate collaboration between any parties involved with a machine. And as a mobile application, you have the possibility to have conversations between other users.

Resource management as competitive advantage

As raw materials, energy and personnel become more costly and in some cases difficult to source, competitive advantage can be gained with accurate monitoring. This puts you in a position to better manage those resources and decide where and how to allocate them, whilst minimizing waste.

How innius works

1. Accessible data

After a fast, easy deployment, innius makes data accessible when and where it is needed, regardless of machine brand. The innius Insight app where real-time and historic data can be viewed is available both as a desktop web app and mobile app compatible with Android and iOS mobile devices. It is also possible to configure dashboards for display on larger screens.

2. Enriched data

Raw machine data can be enriched with manual and virtual sensors, by defining thresholds, shifts, batches, recipes, tasks, machine location and integrating Enterprise Application data. Data can also be used to monitor industry standard performance indicators such as: Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE), Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) and Mean Time To Repair (MTTR).

3. Actionable data

Real-time data monitoring becomes actionable through alerts, assigned tasks, and social collaboration, enabling faster response times. Longer term decisions can be made by analysing sensor data graphs with innius’ standard Downtime, Batch, Quality and Logistics data reports.

Frequently asked questions

Hopefully you can find any answers you need here, otherwise feel free to contact us.

How can I connect my machines to innius?

If your machines generate a data stream and can be connected to the internet, normally via a PLC and an Ewon Flexy modem, then they should be innius capable.

If you’d like to talk to us about the specifics of your machines, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.

Do I need any other hardware, once my machines are connected?

innius is a cloud computing based service, so there is no requirement for on-premises servers. Just a mobile devices or a desktop computer to work with innius.

Can innius data be shared?

Yes, through the trusted relationships and machine sharing system, it is possible to share selected data with other entities. For example: a user decides to share sensor data with a machine maintenance company.

What about security?

The main thing to consider is that innius only reads your machine data, it can’t send anything back to your PLC or machines, which obviously has huge security advantages.

In addition to that a number of industry standard security steps have been taken. These are fully detailed in the Knowledge Base. Or if you want to know more talk to us.

What is the pricing model?

innius operates on a monthly subscription pricing model, giving you access to all the apps. The cost depends mainly on the data usage in addition to a number of other factors. Please get in touch to talk about your specific needs.

My production line is a mix of both hi-tech and older machinery. Isn’t that a problem?

No, you don’t need to connect everything in a production line. innius can deal with individual machines.
