Key Technology introduces new software for digital sorters
Key Technology, a member of the Duravant family of operating companies, introduces Key Discovery. This suite of software solutions transforms Key’s digital sorting systems into IIoT connected devices that collect, analyze and share data while sorting product. By harnessing data about the sort process and about every object flowing through the sorter, Key Discovery can reveal patterns and trends that improve sorting and help control upstream and downstream processes.
“The Industrial Internet of Things is a reality in the food processing industry. Key Discovery represents the next-generation of our information analytics software solutions. With it, food processors can turn their digital sorters into advanced product and process information centres,” said Dave Crewe, senior vice-president of AIS Engineering at Key Technology.
Key Discovery is available for all Key Technology sorting equipment including Veryx digital sorters and ADR Exos automatic defect removal systems, as well as other Key sorting platforms. It offers connectivity to a processor’s enterprise, whether to an MES or SCADA system, shop floor management software or PLC network, via a secure infrastructure.
