Aardvark Core

A tiny application that monitors your Allen-Bradley PLC and saves your process data.
Powerful filters, reports, alarms, and export tools make it easy to find bugs in production and maintenance.

Make Your Life Easier


Pivoting Data Browser

Drag and drop reports, 1-click export to CSV for opening in Excel, etc.

Smart Alerts

Build your own alarms and get notified by text and email. View and filter alarms using the alarm browser.

Use Cases

Aardvark in Action

Catching a Production Bug

Quality Control detects an issue with a specific batch.
Using the data browser and charts, you quickly retrieve batch data and isolate when, where, and why the problem occurred.

This information can be easily shared with management.

Detecting Recurring Problems

Maintenance staff have received several alarm notifications on one line over the last month. Using the alarm browser you find that a level sensor is periodically reporting erroneous values. Other lines have not had this alarm.

Maintenance quickly finds the problem and replaces the level sensor- taking the guesswork out of the task.

Automating Daily Reports

Management wants to see a daily production report. Using the data browser you create a report which shows production data by line. You export the report to CSV which can be emailed to management and maintenance.

You save this template for future use- just load it in Aardvark and change the date range.

BUILT BY

Unmatched Integration Experience

Why We Made Aardvark

We've noted a growing need for easy access to data. Most processes have limited or no historical data records.
Existing attempts at solving this challenge are expensive, hard to use, and lack features that we know our clients require.
We wanted to make a tool to record and analyze this data to improve performance and maintenance outcomes.
This tool must be:

  • Easy to set up and use for non-programmers
  • Easy to change settings like recording interval
  • Autonomous (minimal user maintenance)
  • Fast and reliable
  • Secure
  • Free of expensive enterprise database licensing

Aardvark was built for you by experienced integrators and developers. It's filled with powerful, time-saving features.

System and Technical Requirements

  1. Aardvark requires a Windows PC and an ethernet-connected PLC to save data. Data is saved to a MySQL DB on the PC. MySQL requires minimal setup and doesn’t require any licenses.
  2. Authorized on-site PCs can securely view Aardvark. Access control is easily managed through Aardvark and uses Windows security features.
  3. Offsite viewing on mobile and desktop devices over the internet is possible but requires configuration by your IT department.
  4. Text messages and emails require internet access to send and may incur charges
