– Overview –
DSO SentinelTM modernizes process control for users of Eagle PI machines. It converts the data collected by Eagle’s TraceServerTM application into actionable insights into line performance. Whether you are in operations, quality assurance, maintenance or management, DSO SentinelTM can make your tasks simpler and more effective.
The primary benefit is a dramatic improvement of production lines. With access to the wide array of metrics determinable from x-ray inspection (package integrity, fill-level/weight, item count, clip count, etc.) production issues are both easily identified and diagnosed. The readiness and total-populatory nature of the data makes remedies more decisive and likely, and the consolidation of machines increases up-time. Furthermore, the ability to receive remote notifications regarding faults or unusual behavior keeps management informed and allows operations to take corrective action quickly.
For companies desiring item-level traceability, DSO SentinelTM Master Edition helps provide protection from spurious claims of physical contamination. By including high-speed machine printers and cameras, each item’s inspection data is tied to a unique identifier printed on the package. A simple query of the unique identifier will return all the data necessary to prove an item’s safety and keep your batches out of quarantine.
Frequently Asked Questions
How is DSO Sentinel licensed?
DSO Sentinel is licensed for use with one TraceServer database at a single facility. The base license covers up to three X-ray systems, with an add-on fee for each additional machine connected to TraceServer. DSO Sentinel is typically installed as a shared application on the same server as TraceServer and the database it uses. There is no restriction on the number of users utilizing DSO Sentinel at that facility and users are free to access the application via remote desktop tools.
The application comes with 12 months of remote support and standard updates, after which an annual maintenance agreement is available to continue this coverage.
What if we don't need some of the capabilities?
No problem. We offer varying packages depending on businesses’ needs:
DSO Sentinel Standard Edition is designed for facilities using Eagle systems for contaminant inspection and weighing.
DSO Sentinel Professional Edition provides the Standard Edition capabilities plus additional capabilities needed by facilities using Eagle Fat Analysis (FA) systems.
DSO Sentinel Master Edition provides all the capabilities of the Professional Edition plus those needed for item-level traceability.
Is there a trial version?
We’re happy to discuss arranging trials, but it’s not something you just download and try out on your own. You will need to be running TraceServer 184.108.40.206 or higher, or at least be able to install TraceServer for the trial period. Contact us to go over your specific situation and figure out what will work best.
What if we don't have an Eagle x-ray machine?
Get one! As Eagle’s principle distributor in the United States, our efforts center around their equipment. Our goal is to enhance their already robust offering in order to provide distinct advantages over our competitors. We don’t support competitors’ machines, so to use DSO Sentinel you will need an Eagle machine.
What if we're not in the U.S.?
No problem. We can remotely install and provide support anywhere, as long as VPN or Internet access can be provided. Even when facilities are just a few miles away, providing service remotely often makes the most sense.
