Today industrial machinery supports different communication protocols. They can be standard, such as FANUC, MODBUS, OPC-UA, etc.... or custom protocols developed  by machinery manufacturers. (for further information, read the full article WHAT ARE THE MAIN INDUSTRIAL PROTOCOLS FOR THE MONITORING OF PLANTS?)

In this multitude of industrial protocols, how can FANUC cutters or lathes be interconnected to the project management software /MES with a single solution and comply with the requirements of Industry Plan 4.0?

The simplest answer is iDaq, the flexible platform for instant data collection and analysis.

  • Receive your already processed production data in the blink of an eye, eliminating human errors;
  • Configure devices in seconds to be operational right from the start;
  • Facilitate communication between the CNCs and the project management software /MES.
