Tend Launches in.view™ Robot Performance Management Software

Tend's newest smart cloud robotics™ solution enables remote monitoring and analysis of production robots

BOSTON, Sept. 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Tend (www.tend.ai) has announced it will launch in.view™, a cloud-based monitoring and analysis application for both industrial and collaborative robots, at the RoboBusiness show in Santa Clara, CA, this week.


According to the company, Tend in.view ("intelligent view") software allows users to remotely monitor and analyze the performance of their production robots in real time from any location, through a secure, cloud-based application on their mobile device. The solution features automated alert notifications, a live and historical video feed of the robot(s) being monitored, and access to important key performance indicators (KPIs) including event and exception monitoring, job cycle analysis and activity logs. In addition, in.view allows users to access robot logs and video recordings of the robot cell when issues arise, providing an effective way for systems integrators and in-house support personnel to remotely diagnose and troubleshoot errors.

Tend was recently recognized by industry analyst firm Frost & Sullivan as the 2017 Entrepreneurial Company of the Year for Industrial Robotics Software in Discrete Industries, and the in.view application was a major reason why the Boston-based startup was selected, according to officials at both companies. The in.view application is already being used by systems integrators and large, distributed manufacturing organizations, including a major provider of consumer appliances, Tend reports.

"in.view is a breakthrough for manufacturers and systems integrators of all sizes," said Tend CEO Mark Silliman. "It gives operators and plant managers 24x7 access to valuable insights about their production performance, without requiring the hardware, sensors or extensive integration involved with other smart manufacturing solutions."

According to the company, in.view is available for $250 per month, with no up-front hardware or installation costs and no long-term subscription required. Visit booth #102 at RoboBusiness 2017 to see the world premiere of the in.view application, or www.tend.ai to learn more.

BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

The BLE2 Series replaces our popular BLE Series and continues our brushless motor advantages by featuring an all new compact, high-power and high-efficiency brushless DC motor combined with a Driver that can be digitally set and controlled via external DC voltage or by the front panel. The BLE2 Series can easily compete with larger 3-phase inverter driven motors in many more applications, with built-in simple holding torque function, saving space and increasing performance thanks to the advantages of a brushless motor design. The BLE2 Series has a maximum speed of 4000 r/min, achieving a speed ratio of 1:50 (80 to 4000 r/min). The new motor structure is small than previous models and enables high power and high efficiency while incorporating easy setting, installation and wiring. The new motor connector offers IP66 degree of protection and allows for easy and direct connection between motor and driver with two available orientation of cable outlet direction.
