Product / Service Offerings:

Augmented Automation – industrial automation solutions that utlizie smart glasses, tablets, and a company-supplied augmented management device.

Smart Glasses – using industrial smart glasses as well as intelligently designed software, Essert makes it possible for a user to communicate bidirectionally with a designated support specialist securely and swiftly, supported by simultaneous access to live system data.

The smart glasses solution allows for hands-free remote support through VPN access to live system data and access to screenshots, pictures, and data sheets, training on the job, and a remote support portal.

As of January 2016, Essert has partnered with Vuzix to deliver its smart glasses solutions.

Industrial Tablet HMI – Essert’s Industrial Tablet HMI solution is an answer to Industry 4.0. It provides decentralized system controls with a tablet which is certified for industry use. The Tablet HMI can also be used in hazardous locations. Essert’s open system allows users to implement any run time a user sees fit and allows for use of the tablet as a visualization tool. Additional information like data sheets or circuit diagrams can be easily accessed and displayed on the tablet.

Having accessible interfaces also allows for the integration of local servicing modules and troubleshooting agents and allows for users to perform remote support and documentation using the device’s camera.

Augmented Management Device (AMD) – the AMD forms the heart of the Essert Augmented Automation System. It has been developed by us for the purpose of a simple and manageable integration into existing Essert systems. It has multivendor-capabilities and modularity.

No additional components are needed to integrate a tablet HMI or Smart Glasses into a preexisting or planned system.

The AMD is essentially comprised of three inner components, which can be modularly complemented depending on configuration or stage of extension.
