Jan. 19, 2017 – Based on its recent analysis of the global machine monitoring systems market, Frost & Sullivan has recognized Burlington, Ontario-based Memex Inc. with the 2016 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for Product Leadership.
“With this award, Memex receives worldwide acclaim for its turnkey machine monitoring and automation solutions, especially its flagship product, MERLIN, a next generation scalable IIoT communication platform,” said Frost & Sullivan.
Offering shop floor to top floor communication and visibility at plant- and enterprise-level along with “enhanced data collection, and tailored reporting capabilities,” MERLIN presents specific data results to help customers make strategic decisions when reducing their overall capital expenditure. The system boasts user friendliness, as the installed communications base and open machine integration software collects and houses all machinery data in a single control panel and displays the data on an interactive dashboard. Furthermore, MERLIN helps users track and understand various performance metrics displayed on its system dashboard and performance trend charts.
“One of the distinguishing features of MERLIN is its operator portal, with its ability to perform machine-related operator inputs through a Microsoft Windows-based application,” said Frost & Sullivan research analyst Rohit Karthikeyan. “This parameter-driven software allows operators to quickly tailor the operator portal to display the information they need on their personal devices. It makes the machine information accessible while still channeling operator information inputs, commands, and notices through the plant’s communication platform.”
