Answering your most frequently asked questions

Do I need to connect everything or can Ectobox do it?

Ectobox is happy to do the installation. This works well to ensure quick and efficient installation. If you prefer to do it yourself for whatever reason, then we can configure all of the products ahead of time, ship them directly to you, and guide you through the installation process remotely.

Can you integrate with my ERP system?

Yes, we can integrate with nearly any ERP system. We provide a managed integration service that can integrate with ERP, CMMS, and many other manufacturing software systems.

Is our data secure?

Yes, your data is very secure because we don’t need access to your network. We only need an outbound Internet connection. Additionally, all of your data is encrypted in transit and at rest. SensrTrx is as secure as your network security today because we are sending data only out of your facility and the data is stored in a secured, dedicated public cloud (AWS) environment.

What is the implementation process like?

Our process for implementation focuses on quality, speed, and training for our customers. We bring in our best machine connectivity engineers, spec out the process ahead of time to alleviate issues, and thoroughly test everything at the end to ensure the solution works as promised.

How will SensrTrx monitor my production process?

The sensors and gateway devices will gather data from the machine. Additionally, operators can interact directly with the easy-to-use Operator Interface of SensrTrx to select a next job, select downtime reasons, etc. All of this data is pushed to the SensrTrx platform, processed, and made available to you in real-time. With this data you’ll have the ability to gain insights into what is going on at the plant floor in real-time.  You can track availability of the machines, reduce downtime, determine root causes of issues, correlate process data with downtime and scrap, and increase production capacity and throughput, all in real-time with SensrTrx.

What does the out of the box solution include?

The solution includes:

  • 1 Lead SensrTrx license
  • 1 Light beam counter (fiber optic sensor) or Photoelectric sensor
  • 1 Wireless gateway
  • 1 Amazon Firestick
  • Ectobox installation services by an expert engineer

Is there a mobile/iPad version of your product?

Yes, there is a native iPad version of SensrTrx with full functionality. Additionally, SensrTrx works well on other 10-inch tablets with a modern web browser. There is also a smartphone app of SensrTrx with quick plant overview features.

    How It Works


    We will configure all of the products ahead of time, confirm the installatop process, date, and time.


    The work of training and SensrTrx and installation of the sensors and gateway go hand-in-hand. Before we’re done you’ll have data flowing into SensrTrx and will have visibility directly into the plant floor.
