How to get started with BRA-IN?

Our BRA-IN solution requires a connection via modem and an active subscription to collect data and connect with your baler or compactor. This can be integrated on equipment, purchased separately or supplied as a part of your service program.

Notifications and automated services can be activated by the local service team, and data visualized in the BRA-IN webportal.

Which machines can be connected and how?

Take advantage of our full BRA-IN ecosystem, whether you buy new balers and compactors from us or you want your old equipment updated. Once connected, an active subscription will give you access to the BRA-IN Webportal, with valuable data for your waste management.

Balers with BRA-IN Modem

Modems can be ordered installed from factory when you buy a baler, or installed after delivery on machines from 2012 and onwards.

Why should you get a machine with modem?

  • stopLower service costs through remote access
  • stopAutomated pick-up based on bales ready
  • stopAlerts for machine errors on e-mails
  • stop4 levels of people for notifications possible
  • stopAutomated consumables ordering possible

Location of equipment

When your equipment has a BRA-IN modem installed, you can always find its location. Compactors need either a BRA-IN Control Unit or BRA-IN link to show you their location. Pointers on a map give an overview of your entire fleet by address or current GPS location.

Status of machines

See various information columns about your equipment including: fill levels, equipment errors, address, service contracts, age and unique ID numbers.

Real time and fill levels

Following the fill levels of your equipment is critical for efficient use. See the development over time in machine history to learn about usage patterns and pick-up validation by waste handlers. Everything can be exported to excel for your further analysis, or you can have our service team assist you with this task.

Output data

Matching pick-ups or bales produced are critical issues for making the most of your equipment. Learn how equipment is really used - and compare this with expenses from your waste handlers. Fully customizable view based on time, equipment, and the data you want to monitor – again everything ready to export to excel for in-depth analysis.

The BRA-IN App

When your equipment is connected via a BRA-IN branded product, you can access valuable data, helping you to monitor and optimize your waste handling. Access via the BRA-IN App* allows you to get access to many of the same elements as from the BRA-IN Webportal and more. Whether you are the user of a certain machine, or site administrator of multiple machines the App makes daily tasks easier for all.
