Lawrence Electrical is a family-owned company and have been in business for many years. They understand the meaning of service and have built up a truly impressive reputation in the electrical automation sector. Equally Atlas have a formidable reputation and their partnership allows companies to operate smoothly.
The food industry requires precise measurement of ingredients when making products. Bakeries are no exception and require their machines to operate constantly within the tolerances set by their operators. Subtle changes in those tolerances through operator error require specialist interaction to monitor and make any adjustments necessary. Accessibility to the machine is paramount, but due to geographical and accessibility challenges this is not always possible in a timely manner, and machine downtime is not an option.
An easy to configure and deploy system was very important as time on the site was limited. It needed to be secure and the connection reliable. TOSIBOX® enabled Lawrence Electrical and Atlas to deliver this in a size that is easily installed virtually anywhere.
A TOSIBOX® Lock was installed inside a panel servicing part of the machine allowing the external specialists access whenever any issues were flagged by the operators or to monitor its progress in general operation. Since the installation, most of the issues that would have required a site visit have been averted and the bakery have seen an increase in operational efficiency.
Network integrity, security and isolation are paramount, and TOSIBOX® Lock helps deliver this with its 256 bit encryption. This added layer of security has given a renewed confidence for remote access technologies opening the way for additional Locks to be installed.
As TOSIBOX® continues to excel saving time and money, Lawrence Electrical and Atlas plan to expand their installations into more critical and space conscious environments implementing other solutions from the TOSIBOX® product range.
