Breton Sentinel: the solution for machine data collection and monitoring


BRETON SENTINEL is the complete solution that automatically gathers and processes manufacturing data from the shop floor in real-time.

Easily generate reports and charts with automatic calculation of OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness), TEEP (Total Effective Equipment Performance), cycle time, idle time, downtime and more.
SENTINEL features real-time machine monitoring with Live Screens and has a fully customizable Operator interface for entering downtime reasons directly at the machine.

The SENTINEL software is highly flexible and easily customized to fit your current and future data collection needs.
Since SENTINEL is a networked solution that stores data on a central server you can monitor production from multiple locations and access the data from anywhere.


One of the unique features of BRETON SENTINEL is the Live Screen feature which provide a great status overview for the machine.

Live Screens are normally displayed on large TV screens so that all personnel can easily see the status of each machine. However, Live Screens can also be displayed on smartphones, tablets, and touch screens using the PowerBi Web Client and can thereby be viewed on any device with a browser and internet connection.

Check and control tooling cost issues: SENTINEL can provide accurate reporting of machine tool efficiency on any job. 

Collecting production data and the feed rates: In BRETON SENTINEL data is structured and visualized as reports. You can setup SENTINEL to generate both real-time and historic reports based on the data collected.

The majority of companies only want to know if a particular machine is running and producing parts or if it is stopped.

With a basic data collection setup SENTINEL can show the amount of time the machine has been in production and the amount of time allocated to downtime. SENTINEL also supports dynamic reporting where data is updated in real-time. 

Scheduled maintenance is monitored continuously giving expiration data in order to manage it and giving operator help as well.

  8. Great article!! Data collection and monitoring are very important in improving the productivity of a manufacturing plant. CMMS software helps in dealing with downtime problems. One can use "Thrive" a very effective tool for Downtime tracking and OEE calculation professionals are recommending it.
