How it WorksThe MacMan-Net service collects data from all of the machines configured within it, storing the data in a SQL database. Once the data is accumulated in the database, it can then be fed into other systems from a single centralized source, rather than on a per-machine basis.
dataZen has several options for integration. Because the data is stored in a SQL database, any required data items can easily be exported into XML or other file formats. Many systems accept file-based input, so dataZen can analyze your needs to export the data that you need in a format that your existing infrastructure can read.
Another possibility for integration is direct database connection. dataZen can configure direct transfers from one database to another. Our team has experience with a wide range of database technologies, including SQL Server, OracleDB, MySQL, and others.
What Data can be ProvidedAll of the data collected by MacMan-Net are stored in a database. Depending on your needs, any of this data can be exported, either as it comes in or on a regular schedule. Examples of data items stored by MacMan-Net are:
- Currently running part program (program name and filename)
- NC Status
- Alarm status, number, and description
- Cumulative operating, cutting, and non-operating times
- Cumulative operating and cutting times per part program
- Total part counts, for each running part program
- Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE), if configured
