Target Part Count vs Actual Part Count
Master View reads the “Standard Times” for each machine and part combination in the Predator MDC database. Using that information, it calculates Target Part Count, compares that with Actual Part Count and displays the information both numerically and with a color-coded performance graphic.
Shifts with Breaks
The Master View's “Shifts with Breaks” lets you exclude lunch and other break times from Target Part Counts or other metrics.
Make it Mobile
MDC Browser View is a fully configurable view of your real time data, on any device with browser access.
Purge Stale Files
Time Based File Deletion: Automatically deletes old files from a designated folder(s) on the CNC to avoid operators using outdated files.
Launch your Predator Touch HMI™ or
pWidgets Browser HMI™ only as needed
No need to fill your operator’s computer display with a large grid of buttons. Put a small pWidgets™ Master View on each operator’s PC. Press the “Open HMI” button to launch your desired HMI for a
specific machine only when needed.
Once an HMI entry is made, pWidgets real-time status feedback can alert an operator to a mistake. Thus, most HMI entry mistakes can be seen and corrected almost immediately.
Unlimited Client Installations
The pWidgets license is site-based. Deploy it on an unlimited number of computers throughout your shop. Pricing is based on the total number of CNC machines you use on the system for different widgets/features.
