Intelligent SMART Technology

Europress SMART web portalBalex utilizes a smart-central that has been tested in Europress’s range of compactors for a number of years, with a second generation version of this technology specifically for Balex now in use.

All the best functionality of the original smart technology design has been improved, with lots more additional functions added that have been specifically designed for balers. These improve safety, ease of use and durability of the machine.

Intelligent SMART technology contributes to more cost-efficient and safe operation. Device settings can be individually adjusted to best meet various waste management requirements. The balers monitor their usage and adapt to anomalies in order to protect both the operator and the components.

Optional Real Time Monitoring

The browser version of the SMART web portal allows you to view and manage your balers with a full range of analytics such as filling trends, fault history and emptying times.  You can also see how many bales are ready for collections, helping both you are your recycler plan transport more efficiently.

The SMART web portal also monitors:

  • Number of empyings and times
  • Efficiency including real time fill levels
  • Emergency stop button activations and times
  • Operating hours
  • Location of equipment viewable on a map with map co-ordinates
  • Bale counter
  • Status of the machine including when it was last emptied
  • Indicator of when the service is due
  • Full data analytics – downloadable as Excel spreadsheet

The SMARTWASTE app enables you to monitor your balers in real time from your mobile phone.
