Design & Features

The ORB is protected by a Nema 4X enclosure ensuring that it can withstand the harshest of environments. The ORB interfaces with 4-20mA and digital output devices, such as level sensors and load cells, to monitor and log system performance and activity. High volumes of data can be securely monitored, retrieved and organized by various users within the plant as well as remotely. Current and historically inventory data are available to sites and users via internet/intranet with administrative issued access. Continually monitors and alerts users about material and alarm conditions.

The ORB provides a reliable means of gathering and transmitting real-time inventory information from anywhere, any time via your LAN or the Internet.

The ORB also makes it possible for suppliers to manage their customer’s inventories more effectively than ever before. The result is a fully functional remote Vendor Managed Inventory VMI) process by which a supplier keeps track of a customer’s inventory, scheduling deliveries according to known thresholds and reducing the high cost of data collection, personnel and equipment, measurement errors, and overstocking for both supplier and customer.

Suppliers make fewer delivery runs and eliminate wasteful haul-backs or split-loads, while customers minimize inventory, reduce lead-time, and eliminate run-outs.
