Andon – Visual Display Management

Marquee Manager

SeQent’s Marquee Manager product family monitors manufacturing environments and sends real-time, automated messages (Alarms, Events, KPI’s, OEE) to visual and audible devices including LED/LCD displays, smartphones, tablets, stack lights and sounder alarms.
As an integral part of any lean initiative, Andon boards provide visibility into the activity on the plant floor but need to be driven by a robust, easy-to-use software solution. Our Andon – Visual Display Management product family is the only multi-vendor marquee solution, supporting the majority of boards, including legacy displays.
With efficient installation and implementation, Marquee Manager provides a user-friendly Andon – Visual Display Management software solution that supports the collection of Andon alerts from various automation systems and sources. Utilizing Marquee Manager’s vast integration capabilities, custom implementations are possible with its easy-to-use message management system that offers prioritization and queueing. Data is easily accessible due to the full suite of flexible administration tools, all accessible remotely, and the wide range of device connectivity options.
