With an OPC-connection you will have the possibility to transfer values to Idus Maintenance System. From the PLC, other hardware, sensors, or SCADA-systems Idus can read analog and digital values like operating hours, alarms etc. through the OPC-connection. In this way, you will get an automatic transference of values when planning maintenance. The signals can trigger fault reports or work orders automatically.
If these fault reports represent a certain stop cause, these can be used for analyzing stop causes in Idus Maintenance System.
