The New eDART System Manager - Coming Summer 2015
The eDART SystemTM Manager (ESM) is a complete virtual solution for managing your eDART network. With the ESM, getting an eDART up and running is as simple as plugging it into the network. It will become the centerpiece of your eDART network, providing a single, simple interface to perform all the functions needed to access, support and use eDARTs on the network. The ESM allows you to view all of the eDARTs on your network from the web browser on your desktop. You can view the current process running on any individual eDART with real time cycle and summary data. You can also see which presses are down, for how long, what jobs are running, number of good cycles, number of reject cycles, and more. Finding the trouble spots on your plant floor has never been easier with the enhanced troubleshooting capabilities of searchable data by job and date. Contact us for details.

Flow and Temperature Sensor
Cost Effective Way to Monitor Your Water Lines
RJG will now offer Burger and Brown’s new Smartflow Flowmeters. This product gives you the ability to easily see if there are any changes in the mold coolant flow rates or coolant temperatures. Detecting changes in the flow rate and the coolant temperature can help prevent problems with parts due to insufficient cooling. The product attaches to your water lines and connects to the eDART System via a Flow-Temperature Sensor Interface (IA2-M-FT). Templates and alarms can be set around the readings from the Smartflow Flowmeter and easily viewed and managed from your eDART System. This product is engineered to be more robust, cost effective, and easier to integrate with the eDART System than prior solutions.

The Sensor eValuator
Coming soon! The new Sensor eValuator provides tool builders and molders alike a way to test up to 30 in-mold sensors at one time for proper operation. Testing sensors prior to putting the mold into production can save a considerable amount of lost production and troubleshooting time. The product offers an easy-to-use interface on a tablet. We expect this product to be available for purchase July 2015. Contact us for details.
