FAQs − Frequently Asked Questions about CONNECTED WASH
Are you interested in CONNECTED WASH, or are you already enjoying the advantages of a networked machine and have a question? Then we might have the answer you need here.
The machine only transfers operating data (e.g. temperatures) and machine notifications (e.g. fault messages). No personal data, location data (GPS) or audio/video data is transferred.
As soon as the machine is connected, it regularly sends data.
DATA PROTECTION AND DATA SECURITY
The data is completely secure. It is stored and backed up in our Winterhalter data centre in Meckenbeuren.
The machine is equipped with “buffer storage”, so the data is not lost. As soon as the internet connection is working again, the data is sent.
In this case there is a fall-back server which stores the data during this time. Thus no data is lost.
ACTIVATE CONNECTED WASH ON THE MACHINE (PAIRING)
You access the web configuration interface by entering the IP address of the warewasher (see PIN Menu) into your browser (only relevant for machines with a blue display).
