Scytec’s Commitment to Machine Communication Standards

Scytec is dedicated to ensuring that users of DataXchange have seamless access to connectivity for widely used machine communication protocols. DataXchange has undergone numerous updates to provide valuable insights into shop floor machinery, aligning with the evolving demands of the manufacturing industry. From its inception, DataXchange has prioritized fostering commonality in the manufacturing sector by employing OPC-UA and MTConnect, offering a comprehensive approach to machine connectivity.

Umati (universal machine technology interface) is a community of the machine building industries and their customers for the promotion and adoption of open, standardized interfaces based on OPC UA. The goal of Umati is to have a standard interface for manufacturing equipment using a secure, standard protocol. Since Umati is based on OPC UA and Scytec DataXchange fully supports OPC UA, the capability to work with Umati is built into DataXchange.

Scytec DataXchange possesses the capability to leverage OPC UA companion Umati, delivering effective machine monitoring results globally as a testament to its commitment to smart factory technology both domestically and internationally. Umati introduces a plug-and-play aspect, enhancing visibility and cross-industry marketing for simplified connectivity within the machinery sector.

In collaboration with OPC-UA, Umati establishes a global standard for acceptance, providing a framework for standardized communication across machinery, installations, components, and production IT ecosystems. Connectivity stands as a crucial element for 21st-century machinery, involving the seamless exchange of data between devices and software systems. Umati addresses this imperative by advocating for open standards worldwide, benefiting machinery users and the machine-building industries themselves.

Umati champions the realm of modern manufacturing by unlocking new potential through simplified machine-to-machine and machine-to-device communication. This streamlining extends to customer-specific IT infrastructures and ecosystems, resulting in cost reduction through the swift realization of end-user needs.
