With MTConnect, Fanuc FOCAS, OPC UA, hardware modules, sensors, along with functionality such as integration, a very wide variety of equipment is supported by our DataXchange OEE machine data collection software.
DataXchange supports machines that provide MTConnect which includes an ever growing list of machine tool builders and controls. DataXchange supports Fanuc i series controls with the FOCAS Ethernet protocol for data collection and machine monitoring. Here is a partial list of machines supported by either MTConnect or Fanuc FOCAS.
- Okuma with OSP-P100-II, OSP-P200, OSP-P300
- Mazak supports a wide variety including Matrix, Matrix II, even as far back as many Fusion 640 controls
- Mori-Seiki with MAPPS 2 or greater
- Hardinge with Mitsubishi controls
- Machines with Siemens 840D controls such as:
- DMG Mori
- Makino Pro 5 and Pro 6
For machines that do not offer a compatible Ethernet based protocol such as FOCAS or MTConnect such as Haas Automation or Brother a hardware module can be used. The hardware ties into electrical points on the machine, such as monitoring voltage to the stack lights, or current to the spindle motor. The hardware can also utilize presence sensors, relays, or other similar points to identify whether or not the machine is running, and how it is running.
Contact Scytec if you have any questions about whether or not your machine is supported with an Ethernet protocol or if hardware would be used for machine data collection.
