Ax760 MTConnect

A fully configurable MTConnect hardware adapter that enables  your machine tool to communicate critical operational information using the MTConnect standard protocol.  Easily “MTConnect” every machine tool on your shop floor to output machine state data, alarm conditions and controller modes and more, in real-time.
There are new features to the Ax760:

  • Native connectivity to any I/O link equipped Fanuc controllers including late model 16 /18 controls and all i-series models.
  • Simple Phoenix style quick disconnect connectors
  • MTConnect Compliant V1.2. Field upgradeable to newer releases
  • Plug into Fanuc I/O link bus and passively detect data on both the X (operator inputs) and Y (lights) addresses from 0.0 to 127.7 as well as 16 additional digital inputs.
  • Supports part counting through predefined part count address spaces.
  • Applet to configure monitor the Fanuc I/O link PMC address space to MTConnect tags.
  • Comprehensive “Expression Builder” enables you to combine inputs and create expressions to derive critical outputs to drive your efficiency clients.
  • MTConnect allows for Feedrate and Spindle Override to be represented as a multi-step percentage value from the Machine Operator Panel
  • 16 digital inputs, optically isolated—8 groups of 2 (DI:3-30VDC, 1A), quick disconnect
  • Power Source—12-24VDC
  • 15KV Surge protection
  • Self-resetting fuses
  • Non-volatile memory protects set up in the event of an extended power loss
