The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) has arrived for machine shops and tool and die-mold operations of all sizes with the introduction of ProNetConneX, our machine interface that connects, collects and analyzes machine data for ultimate productivity and efficiency.
From machine status monitoring and utilization to ERP (enterprise resource planning) system integration, ProNetConneX equips companies with holistic knowledge and control of their manufacturing operations. ProNetConneX provides manufacturers a built-in, instant on-ramp to the Industrial Internet of Things, with secure connectivity to leading software management systems via the MTConnect standard.
With support for fog-level computing over local networks and cloud accessibility, ProNetConneX enables businesses of all sizes to provide simple, customized and secure transmission of machine information across connected devices on the factory floor.
ProNetConneX can be integrated into Makino’s machine controls to enable full MTConnect v1.3 compliant data collection. Additional machine sensors can be installed within machines and added to ProNetConneX to expand real-time manufacturing data-collection capabilities based on your company’s unique needs.
Secure Your Data with Familiar Networking
Data security and cloud services are enabled in cooperation with one of today’s leading network hardware providers, making the networking platform familiar and easy to use for IT technicians. Cisco’s Industrial Ethernet 4000 switch enables secure connectivity.
Full Support for Industry-Standard MTConnect
ProNetConneX supports MTConnect as the industry standard for communications between manufacturing equipment and systems with MTConnect v1.3 compliancy. This setup enables ProNetConneX to connect with the manufacturing planning software of your choice, including solutions from Memex, Scytec, Lemoine, Freedom eLog, Forcam and other leading providers. Machine data can be supplied to a wide variety of software solutions for part production monitoring, control and interfacing to MRP/ERP systems.
