GENIUS Instant Insights™ - customer testimonial

In June 2020, our Customer Center in Germany installed 5 GENIUS Instant Insights™ boxes on five Dry Vacuum Pumps during the pilot phase of the connectivity project. The customer is a leading manufacturer in Germany. The result was outstanding. The customer was delighted when in early September they received a critical level alert on an e-mail from the GENIUS Instant Insights™ portal.

This was our first installation of the remote monitoring GENIUS Instant Insights™ system on the client side. The client was aware that given the number of machines involved, the system would have to be complex. They concluded that GENIUS Instant Insights™ would be up to the task and gave it a try. The results surprised them beyond expectation. The early warning messages and information helped them in lowering downtime.

“The pre-filter in the water circuit was almost completely blocked. We were able to recognize this immediately from the pressure display on the GENIUS Instant Insights™ portal and changed the corresponding pre-filters. 20 minutes of downtime, but our process could continue to operate without any loss of material. I have now included our operators in the notification list for alerts. They are grateful for such a valuable input, as it prevents unpleasant tidying up (e.g., shoveling 20 tons of glass after breakage). A clear indication that this system is indeed useful for us.”

“All these machines need to work specifically and shouldn’t delay my production. I never wanted a long-term production loss, so when they said we want to install this, I said, “Yes, of course”. We had installed a new pump system in 2018. We had never used a dry vacuum pump before; we used to use an oil-based vacuum pump. So, I wanted to know if there is a possible failure mode. These machines have several parts; using this monitoring system, I get pre-warning about pretty helping details. Those early messages in my e-mails help me a lot.” 

How to connect your pump to GENIUS

There are three different ways to connect your pumps.

Connecting to GENIUS with a new pump
Are you thinking about, or in the process of purchasing a new vacuum pump?

Ask your machine sales representative if GENIUS Instant Insights™ is compatible with the model that you are purchasing.

Vacuum pumps with intelligent controller: connection to the GENIUS Portal can be achieved via LAN or by having a GENIUS Box Kit installed during the pump’s start up.

Vacuum pumps without intelligent controllers: these pumps can be ordered from our factory with a GENIUS box kit preinstalled. 

Connecting GENIUS to an installed pump

The GENIUS kits can also be installed by one of our service engineers or our authorized distributors.

We can install GENIUS during a normal service visit. This means that there is no additional cost for the installation. It takes on average 30 minutes to get your pump fully communicating with the GENIUS Portal. 

For some machine models, the customer can easily and safely install the kit by themselves. Please talk to your service provider for more information. 

Connecting GENIUS at our workshop

When booking a major maintenance at one of our workshops for your vacuum pumps, you can request your service provider to install a GENIUS Box kit at no additional installation cost.

Your vacuum pump will return to you already communicating to the GENIUS Portal. You will be ready to follow your pump condition from day one after it is back from the workshop. And the best, at your convenience!
