Equipment Monitoring EQM

The right information in the right place at the right time

  • Improving the uptime of your processing line
  • Real-time information about technical condition
  • Central alarming in case of unwanted variances
  • Historical data available for reporting and analysis
  • Simple add-on to the installed base


Control of a poultry processing operation is becoming ever more automated, for which providing good and clear information about the functioning of different stages in the process is essential. To that end, Marel has developed the Equipment Monitoring software application.

EQM is a stand-alone plug-in app for monitoring individual items of equipment such as live bird handling, anesthetization, automatic transfer and chilling systems. It uses data obtained from sensors and switch boxes and operates in a web-based environment.

Invaluable early warning

EQM provides uniformly presented, clear and up-to-the-minute information about the technical condition of the system it is monitoring. It warns of undesirable variances and displays an alarm in the central control room when problems occur, allowing management to intervene immediately and keeping the negative impact of malfunction of the equipment to a minimum. Historical information provided by the software helps with day-to-day maintenance planning, which can then be carried out as conveniently and cost-effectively as possible.

Real-time situations

The easy-to-install EQM add-on can be configured to suit individual production requirements. It not only provides customizable messages on real-time situations but also stores historical information. Various reporting options give you an effective tool for analyzing past performance data. It is even possible to add comments on an individual alarm, such as the reason that caused it and the effective remedial action that was taken.

Improve uptime

Equipment Monitoring (EQM) can play an important role in optimizing your process. It can improve the uptime of your processing line, increasing your yield. Machinery which works well and is promptly maintained will last longer.

Data from web-based Equipment Monitoring can be made available to all PCs in a customer’s network in the customer’s own language. It can also be accessed by the Marel helpdesk, to help with resolving problems.
