Network Solution Monitors Multiple Metal Detectors in Real Time

Mettler-Toledo Safeline, Inc. introduces Explorer, an innovative software program designed to network Safeline metal detectors from multiple locations to a central computer. According to the company, the program provides secure, real-time operating status for every metal detector on the network from anywhere in the world.

Safeline’s Explorer software has a user-friendly, intuitive graphic interface and operates on a standard TCP/IP network. Its communication is bi-directional, allowing managers to change parameters on individual detectors on the network, as well as receive critical, real-time information such as reject counts, detector on-line status, power failures and network instability.

“With Explorer’s ability to securely and remotely access data as well as alter settings of any metal detectors on the network, managers can more efficiently control their operations,” said Joe Gianfalla, Marketing Manager. “Explorer software offers plant owners a viable means to increase productivity.”
