Blackbird System II Launching

More scalable data handling, enhanced security and new front-end application


We have been working on developing System II for the last two years in order to make the system more scalable and to fulfill many of our customers wishes from various industries. The migration test of System II has been completed at some of our customer’s sites and we are very happy to have received positive feedback about the new system. System II will soon be available for new users while existing users can continue using System I since both systems will continue to co-exist. If any of the users onSystem I would like to upgrade to System II, please contact us for more information. Some highlights of System II

  • Consolidated OEE for groups of machines
  • Andon Calls – Maintenance Integration
  • In-Process Control
  • Multiple sensors combined to form a connected production line
  • Configurable user roles and levels
  • Push standard reports and PowerBI interface

Our mantra of “simplicity” and “easy to use” continues to exist on System II together with the wireless Plug and Play devices.
