Digital manufacturing depends on data from a diverse set of industrial equipment on the factory floor. Uniform,
robust communications are part of the necessary infrastructure for modern business systems and 21st century analysis
The MTConnect standard enables manufacturing equipment to provide data in structured XML
rather than proprietary formats. Having uniform data opens up a world of new applications for industry.
MT Connect data sources include things like production equipment, sensor packages, and other hardware. Applications using
MTConnect data provide more efficient operations, improved production optimization, and increased productivity.
What is an Adaptor?
An MT Connect Adaptor via Ethernet queries CNC Machines using many different manufacturer specific protcols. Instead of then
using a locked away proprietary data format, the Adaptor will translate the information recieved into the MT
Connect standard. this allows for any MT Connect compatable system or application to utilise the data.
