The Marveloc featured products of Hammer-IMS are controlled through our Connectivity software. It allows you to control any Marveloc-CURTAIN or Marveloc-CHARIOT systems in a single software environment, regardless whether you are using a single-sensor or a multi-sensor system. The software is easy to use, contains various industry-specific visualizations, and is available pre-installed on a rugged industrial PC or a desktop PC offering a widescreen experience. The software offers a various number of both timestamped and position-based visualizations.
Connectivity 3.0 can be interfaced remotely by means of an embedded TeamViewer installation. This TeamViewer installation enables Hammer-IMS staff to monitor the installation's behavior as part of training and servicing activities.
Hammer-IMS supports a wide range of industry-standard bus protocols. We support integrations based on Modbus TCP/IP, OPC UA or PROFINET for real-time links with existing industrial infrastructure. In this way, the data provided by our measuring systems can be used real-time by existing equipment to optimize the production process in real-time.
Watch our latest dual scanning system, which serves as an inline project for PMC felts at Heimbach Group (Olten, Switzerland). The automated M-Ray based system for grammage quality control eliminates radioactive sources at what the customer calls the pre-needle loom. We collaborated with Vansichen Linear Technology to fit a nearly 9 meters long steel linear module into a very limited inclined space envelope. This is an example where multiple Hammer-IMS measuring machines are controlled by our Connectivity 3.0 software.

Our main software window only displays the features that really matter to our users. This is basically: a visualization (e.g. basis-weight as a numeric value), a Measure/Pause button, a Clear button and a Stop button. Furthermore, some buttons that are intended to make life easier: a Cleaning button (to disable the touch screen for 60 seconds to allow cleaning), a Keyboard button to show the touch keyboard and a Mute button to mute auditive alarms (e.g. a buzzer).
The HD-widescreen main software window stands for easy interpretation of measurement graph data. Zooming-in on graphs is possible by means of simple touch gestures.
The flexible design of the software enables us to deliver tailor-made visualizations for your industry. An installation on a plastic extrusion line would probably ask for a plugin showing the thickness for each tuning bolt, whereas a plastic calendering line does not deal with tuning bolts and therefore requires another plugin on its turn.
We do not need you to be an M-Ray professional to operate Hammer-IMS's measurement systems and Connectivity 3.0. The measurement system's configuration is pretty easy. We offer a single-click configuration of the software according to the recipe that is currently being processed/produced by your production equipment. Do not waste your precious time checking all configurations over and over again and do not let human mistakes or improper configurations be directly responsible for the quality of your products. Production managers can upload recipes from an Microsoft Excel-compatible file into Hammer-IMS's Connectivity software.
In order to optimize the user's experience, Connectivity 3.0 supports your language. Ask Hammer-IMS what is possible for your language.
Our recently-developed Color Graph add-on gives the operator a clean view on variations of the produced material in both the machine-direction and the cross-machine direction.
