Observer V1.1

Machine Monitoring Service

The location-independent 24/7 accessibility to manufacturing processes and business procedures becomes more important for modern companies in sheet metal processing.

The monitoring service Observer from Bystronic is a system for web-based and camera-aided remote-monitoring of all production processes on cutting AND bending machines.

The access to Observer is done via Bowser interface. Therefore, this application is compatible with all Internet-capable devises as desktop computers, notebooks, tablets or smartphones.

The visual monitoring of Bystronic cutting machines themselves is carried out by webcams. The connection between the machine and the corresponding device of the user takes place within the company network (LAN) or via Internet.
