March 24, 2017 –Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. introduces an MTConnect adapter to facilitate shop floor monitoring. MTConnect is an open standard that allows the sharing of a common language between machines and other electrical equipment from various manufacturers.
Compliant with version 1.31 of the MTConnect standard, the MTConnect adapter captures the NC data from machines on the shop floor in real time and formats it into the MTConnect standard. Using one common communication tool for all equipment eliminates the need for specialized, proprietary software from multiple equipment vendors.
The MTConnect adapter combined with a third-party client software interface gives executive management, plant managers and shop floor personnel a complete overview of shop floor activity. Armed with that data, shop floor personnel can quickly detect problems or inefficiencies in their production line and take action to remedy the situation.
Machine tools in North America equipped with Mitsubishi Electric CNC controls can immediately use the MTConnect adapter to connect equipment on their shop floors.
