Real-time Visual Management Dashboards with MTConnect integration

How do I get my MTConnect data from the machines into real-time dashboards?

With the X10 Industrial Gateway you can easily read out your machine data via the MTConnect protocol. These are then processed in real time in the Actyx Ada architecture and played into the Visual Management Dashboard application. This application is then shown on the industry-rugged Smart Monitor on your shopfloor.

Why? This flow of information can be used, for example, for having real-time 360° transparency over your operations or for increasing your OEE.

How does machine data acquisition with MTConnect work?

The Machine Data Collection (MDC) application is installed on the Actyx Industrial Gateway, which is based on the Hilscher netPI. Data translation for the respective data schema of the system can be configured via the graphical configuration interface. The gateway can be mounted on DIN-rails and is extremely robust, so that it can also be used flexibly in extreme industrial environments. The gateway also supports further machine integrations, such as OPC UA or EUROMAP 12/67.

Easily collect machine data:

  • Plug & Play, no installation
  • Fully managed, no need for your IT to operate it
  • Industry best practices, no risks

Stay in control: Visual Management with real-time dashboards

The Visual Management Dashboards offer you and your staff the possibility to analyze and evaluate production data via intuitive real-time displays. Thanks to this, everyone can quickly and easily maintain an overview and full control over their work and processes.

Increase customer satisfaction through more flexibility and fast reaction times

Learn about problems before or as they occur. Automatic notifications, triggered by specific thresholds, allow you to react earlier. If you make short-term decisions, you can communicate them quickly to the relevant employees with the Mobile Team Collaboration application. This means that you are no longer in delay and can better utilize your plants or even maintain them with foresight.

Benefits of Visual Management Dashboards with machine data:

  • Increase productivity
  • Improve delivery times
  • Make collaboration easier

Extend at the click of a button: send machine data into your ERP or to mobile worker terminals

If you collect machine data using MTConnect, you have many options for using it. To avoid the creation of parallel systems, with Actyx the collected data can be easily played through ERP interfaces into your source of truth, whether it is SAP, Microsoft NAV or proALPHA. The combination of machine data acquisition with other Actyx applications is an easy way to add further value: context-sensitive worker assistance, digital work instructions or intelligent quality inspections become even more useful tools. In this case, the Manual Work Logging application can achieve a significantly higher data quality with plausibility checks or relieve your workers of their work.

Data and transparency only become helpful, if they are leveraged through deriving, formulating and measuring operational initiatives to add value.
