Don’t let the low monthly price fool you, the DataXchange application is full of features and functionality that don’t exist elsewhere and is a true game changer when it comes to machine monitoring & data collection systems.
MACHINE DATA COLLECTION
OEE AND IIoT DATA COLLECTION
Collect actual activity on the shop floor and compare the activity to plan ideal times. In addition, data can be collected from sensors providing utilization data, downtime data, as well as maintenance related data.
TRACK MULTIPLE TYPES OF CYCLE TIME
Scytec DataXchange has the ability to track multiple types of cycle time. For example, cycle time can be tracked from a hardware adapter and through MTConnect or Fanuc Focas. Reporting on metrics such as utilization and efficiency can then be run on both sets of cycle time and the two can be compared. Another example is to collect spindle time along with load to unload time.
SUPPORT FOR MTCONNECT AND FANUC FOCAS ETHERNET PROTOCOLS
Scytec DataXchange supports Ethernet based protocols such as Fanuc Focas and MTConnect greatly reducing or eliminating hardware at each piece of equipment.
COLLECT FROM ETHERNET, RS-232 AND HARDWARE BASED DEVICES
In addition to supporting the latest technologies, DataXchange also supports RS-232 serial devices such as CNC machines, CMM’s, scanners and RFID hardware.
COLLECT FROM CNC MACHINES, PLCS, OR EVEN MANUAL MACHINES
While collecting from equipment with the latest technology such as MTConnect is great, many times there’s a need to collect from manual equipment. Keying off of voltage, current, or presence sensors are all methods used as input into DataXchange to identify the state of the equipment.
IF THE INTERNET CONNECTION IS LOST DATA IS RETAINED AND AUTOMATICALLY UPLOADED ONCE THE CONNECTION IS RESTORED
Temporary loss of internet connectivity will not cause the loss of any data. If the data collection terminal running DataXchange locally cannot connect to any of the hosted servers the data will be retained locally and uploaded as soon as the internet connection is restored.
CONFIGURABLE LOGIC EXPRESSIONS WITHOUT WRITING ANY CODE
One key requirement for a successful data collection system is accurate data. However, equipment varies tremendously making accurate data collection difficult. Therefore, in order to collect accurate data the system must be powerful, flexibility, yet easy to use and maintain. When you see DataXchange you will be impressed! A few examples include adding criteria to determine of if a piece of equipment is cycling or not using a friendly user interface. Compare the status reported by the equipment to the status in the machine monitoring & data collection system to determine if an update is needed. These are just a few examples of the strengths of the configurable logic expressions in DataXchange.
CHARTING, REPORTING, VIEWING
REAL TIME CONFIGURABLE DASHBOARD VIEWING OF SHOP FLOOR DATA WITH AUTOMATIC UPDATING
A user configurable dashboard can display a variety of information, all updating in real time. The views are configurable on a user or a user group bases allowing the dashboard to not only be used for visual manufacturing on the shop floor, but also as a tool for management as well as the maintenance and quality departments.
UNLIMITED NUMBER OF REPORTING AND CHARTING LICENSES
That’s right, we don’t limit the number of computers, phones, or tablets that the software runs on. We don’t limit the number of concurrent users looking at data. Accessing the collected data is truly unlimited!
VIEW AND REPORT ON YOUR DATA FROM ANYWHERE
In the facility, on the road, from home; the data is available at all times from any location accessible from a PC, a tablet or a phone.
Email templates can be created and then populated in real time based on the shopfloor activity. The configurable DataXchange Expressions are used to trigger the emails providing an unlimited amount of ways to utilize the notification functionality.
EXCEL AND CSV EXPORTING
The raw data can be exported to Excel or CSV allowing for custom report and charts or addition analysis of the data to be done.
LATEST MICROSOFT .NET AND INTERNET TECHNOLOGY
DataXchange is written from the ground up utilizing the latest technologies such as .NET, REST web services, and Windows Presentation Foundation.
DESIGNED AND BUILT TO EVOLVE, INTEGRATE, AND GROW
Being built on the latest industry standard technologies, DataXchange is designed to evolve with the industry, integrate with other systems such as ERP, and grow with your business.
NO DATABASE OR WEB SERVERS TO PURCHASE OR MAINTAIN
We’ll house and maintain the servers greatly reducing the implementation and maintenance costs. There will be one PC on site which will aggregate the data from the equipment and take care of ensuring the data is successfully and securely transferred to the server and available for immediate reporting.
DESIGNED FOR MULTIPLE FACILITIES ACROSS TIME ZONES
If you have multiple facilities across time zones we have you covered. Scytec DataXchange is fully designed with multiple time zones in mind. Run reports using the local time from where the reports are run or from where the data is collected.
SUPPORTS MULTIPLE LANGUAGES BASED ON THE USER LOGIN
Scytec DataXchange comes out of the box with multiple languages. The default language can be set at the plant level or a user level. The language is dynamic and determined when the user logs in providing ease of use and great flexibility.
NO LARGE UPFRONT FEES, PAY AS YOU GO WITH LOW MONTHLY PAYMENTS
Ok, it’s a perfect solution for your facility, you want to try it, but worried about the upfront investment. Not to worry, there aren’t any large upfront fees! One low setup fee and low monthly payments based on the quantity of equipment utilizing the system.
MOVE LICENSING BETWEEN EQUIPMENT AND BETWEEN PLANTS
Using just the software an administrator of the system can move licensing between any of the pieces of equipment, even if the equipment is in another facility!
NO HARDWARE KEYS TO MANAGE FOR LICENSING
All of the licensing is done through software eliminating the need to manage hardware keys and drivers for the hardware dongle.
