Practical IoT: optimizing the production line with sensor data

April 05, 2017

Netherlands-based Pop Vriend Seeds is one of the leading breeders of spinach, bean and sweet corn varieties for the global fresh food market and the processed food industry. Seeds from Pop Vriend find their way to buyers in over 120 countries.

Challenge

Ensuring optimal output and efficient conveyor belt usage at the Pop Vriend seed processing facility.

Using sensor data to optimize the production line

Pop Vriend Seeds use a conveyor belt counting sensor and the 30MHz analytics platform to optimize production lines. The sensor counts every passing bag, while the ZENSIE dashboard displays data for various dates and times.

Meet the 30MHz Sensor Toolkit

Choose a combination of sensors to capture the metrics you need, and get real-time alerts and analytics from your environment on desktop, mobile or tablet. Get set up without IT involvement. All you need is a wifi connection, and a few moments to deploy.
