Machine Monitoring for the 21st Century
DataXchange is a Cloud and On-Premise manufacturing machine monitoring system. It increases overall equipment effectiveness and shop floor productivity through the use of innovative IIoT technology. DataXchange is compatible with a wide variety of manufacturing machines including CNC’s, PLC’s, welders, and manual machines. Managers and operators can create custom shop floor data entry rules to automatically collect shop floor data from a wired or wireless connection on MTConnect & Fanuc FOCAS based machines as well as older manual machines. As the machine data is collected, DataXchange has all the OEE reports, charts, dashboards and notifications you need to analyze the information in a meaningful way. The features and benefits of DataXchange make it a machine monitoring system that meets the manufacturing data collection needs of small facilities as well as large multi-site enterprise level operations.
View Data From Anywhere
Storing the data securely in the Cloud along with unlimited reporting licenses allows data to be viewed from anywhere at anytime.
Apple iPad and iPhone along with Android phone and tablet apps are available for real time and historical charting.

Real-Time Configurable Dashboard
A user configurable dashboard can display a variety of information, all updating in real time. The views are configurable on a user or user group basis allowing the dashboard to not only be used for visual manufacturing on the shop floor, but also as a tool for management and the maintenance and quality departments. Single or multiple views can be displayed with an unlimited amount of screens defined. Screens can be configured to rotate, filtered by certain equipment, or by certain statuses making the Real-Time Viewer a powerful visual management tool.
Track Multiple Types of Cycle Time
DataXchange has the ability to track multiple types of cycle time. For example, it can be tracked from a hardware adapter and through MTConnect or Fanuc Focas. Reporting on metrics such as utilization and efficiency can then be run on both sets of data and the two can be compared. Another example is to collect spindle time along with load to unload time.
Equipment Status Charts
Charts can be configured to show General or Specific statuses displaying summary information or a very detailed breakdown. Multiple types of cycle time can be recorded simultaneously and then any of the cycle times can be used to calculate utilization.
