“We are ‎delivering ‎cutting-edge tunnel boring machines for all ground conditions and with all diameters ‎‎– ranging from ‎‎0.10 to 19 meters. The Herrenknecht product range includes large diameter machines for traffic and ‎transport tunnels, as well as tunneling machines for supply and disposal tunnels. ‎Navigating the machines with a weight of up to several 1,000 tons precise to the millimeter over the distance of kilometers is one of the main challenges," says Winfried Blakowski.

The system of software and hardware has to meet the highest standards and, therefore, it is important push updates and new developments. A new monitoring system should include two independent modules: data acquisition software and data visualization software. The defined standards and targets are met by the .Net ModelKit Suite.

.Net ModelKit Suite is a package of .Net components for reporting, data analysis and visualization. It’s a productive, fully integrated component framework for developing, deploying and maintaining any analytical applications. This product includes: Report Sharp-Shooter, OLAP ModelKit, Chart ModelKit and Instrumentation ModelKit. All these components represent an interconnected development framework. This means that you can easily complement reports with stunning charts or gauges and create intelligent digital dashboards composed of graphs and gauges.

The package includes powerful reporting tool to address Herrenknecht AG reporting demands, flexible and completely customizable gauge component to visualize the acquired data in the control panel and charting component to estimate the acquired data.

“Since those components are completely compatible with each other we didn’t have to search for any other software for our project. One of decisive points was the availability of OPC connection feature, as all data acquired from the tunneling machines goes to OPC server and then it should be processed and visualized. We decided to order the complete solution to be sure that data acquisition and visualization modules work in tandem. As a result we got a stable and reliable monitoring system and excellent customer service", adds Winfried Blakowski.
