Monitor Steeger Braiders with the mCerberus™ MCB-100 Platform
One of the application of the mCerberus™ MCB-100 device is with the monitoring of Steeger Braiders. Steeger Braiders are the braider of choice in the Medical Device industry used for the reinforcement of composite tubing utilized in interventional catheters.
The mCerberus™ MCB-100 device finds practical use in running a Steeger Braider when the Engineer or Technician wants to be notified if and when the braider “shuts down” for any reason. Your Technicians can be alerted immediately on the weekends when a Braider running unattended shuts down due to a broken braid wire, empty bobbin, or due to a power interruption.
The implementation of mCerberus™ MCB-100 device on a Steeger Braider consists of the following steps:
- Install the mCerberus™ MCB-100 hardware per our Installation Guide
- Configure the Notifications settings using your Smart Phone which includes entering your WiFi Network information
- Enable the mCerberus™ MCB-100 unit by setting the ON/OFF switch to ON
- Perform an Installation Qualification by running at least one test case to ensure the system is working properly
At this point, the System is enabled. When the braider shuts down, the mCerberus™ MCB-100 will detect the Steeger Braider OFF condition within thirty seconds. Your phone carrier (AT&T, Verizon, etc) will typically deliver a text message to you within 60 seconds.
