Oklahoma City, Oklahoma- Maxcess, a global leader in innovative products and services for the web handling industry, today announced the release of the Wi-Fife™ interface for its FIFE-500 web guides. Allowing wireless monitoring and control of the FIFE-500 from any tablet or smartphone, the Wi-Fife™ ushers in a new era of wireless web control.
“The Wi-Fife™ interface for our FIFE-500 allows operators remote access of their FIFE-500 operator interface through a wired Ethernet or wireless connection,” said Shomari Head, Global Product Manger of Fife. “Featuring embedded web pages that can be accessed through the web browser of any Wi-Fi-enabled device, the Wi-Fife™ allows the operator freedom to monitor and control their guides from anywhere on the factory floor, without requiring a physical operator interface.”
By connecting to a network of motor control units and operator interfaces, the Wi-Fife™ can connect up to 30 devices on a single network, with the ability to monitor and control any unit. This allows for a seamless connection, flexibility and accessibility of all networked guides wirelessly from anywhere on the factory floor.
“Maxcess has a storied history of introducing groundbreaking technology to the converting industry,” said Greg Jehlik, CEO of Maxcess. “Just as the FIFE-500 introduced color touch screens to web guiding, we believe the Wi-Fife™ interface will become an industry standard, one where operators are no longer tied to a fixed station to monitor or control their operation. Customers can expect to see this exciting technology applied throughout our other brands under the Maxcess umbrella.”
