DATA COLLECTION RULES

The power and flexibility of the Expressions provides endless options to allow DataXchange to grow as the shop floor data collection and machine monitoring needs of your business grow. The power of logic-based Expressions with DataXchange not only provides a solution to the problem, but also empowers the customer with the control over the logic being used to determine the results and actions of the data being collected.

The Expressions not only evaluate data to determine the status of the equipment, but they can also be used to trigger notifications.
