Grouping by data source

QWDataHub identifies a data source like IOServer and allows for the setting of individual scan rates by Group multi-threaded processing

Single-source Changes

Allows for the changing of physical tag names and sources without affecting the use of the data accessed though tag aliases in downstream applications like Quality Window.

Secure TCP bridged access

Ensures the security and integrity of the Automation data is maintained well opening up the data to business users. This allows QWDataHub to act as a TCP gateway to various QW users across the factory.

Reduce cost of I/O servers

QWDataHub acts as a single point of contact for PLC/Automation data and eliminates the need for one of more I/O Servers running on each workstation.

Deploy rapidly with QWDataHubAppGen

By querying your running QWDataHub server, it retrieves all tag definitions and attributes for an easy build and fast deployment of of your QW applications.

Tag Translation

Translation of complex PLC tags to easy-to-read reference names.

Managed Access

QWDataHub allows the administrator to control what tags are exposed, the naming of those tags for business users..making sure the right data is used for the right job!

Minimize Data Traffic

QWDataHub is a “buffer” for realtime PLC data minimizing the impact on controls network through the use of unsolicited reads.

Calculated tag values via VBScripting

Increases flexibility and greatly reduces the need for specialized PLC programming. Perform unit conversions on raw PLC data to hand off to Quality Window.

QWDataHub use cases

QWDataHub is a powerful tool for many of our clients, but it’s also flexible and versatile.

Below, we’ve included a few scenarios to demonstrate how our customers are using QWDataHub in their operations. Take a read through them and reach out to our team to get started with QWDataHub.

Customer Reporting & Verification

A Contract manufacturing site installed QWDataHub as a cost effective method to collect data from multiple automated sources and supplement manual data collection using Quality Window 5 to meet customer reporting and verification needs.

Accessing Automation Data made easy

A Consumer Products company specializing in diaper manufacturing wanted to expand their use of manufacturing data collected in Quality Window to improve their efficiencies by accessing automation data through OPC and RSLinx.

A wide variety of connection options

An innovative Paper Manufacturer wanted to capture key parameters on the start up of a new process using QWDatahub to access data through an OPC link to Metso Automation sources and view the realtime results in Quality Window 5.

A reduction in servers needed

A leading global non-wovens manufacturer consolidated their multiline data collection through QWDataHub and iFix minimizing costs by eliminating the need for multiple iFix servers. Delivering vital data to line operators through Quality Window 5 applications.

A better look at process data

Needing to align and cross reference their quality lab results with their process run settings, a recognized world leader in Incontinence and Disposable products turned to QWDataHub to collect process data through OPC and RSLinx. They then paired that data with their Quality Results in Quality Window 5 to gain better visual and statistical insight into the effects of process changes.
