Version 2018.04.10 of the DataXchange software from Shop Floor Automations offers several improvements over previous versions. The software’s Data Entry screen provides operators with an interface to track machine downtimes and includes a “notes” field to alert others on the shop floor of critical actions. This notification system reduces downtime.

An E-Learning program enables users to take online courses. Configuring reporting options, software installation, initial configuration, shift options, modifying existing machine data and understanding the machine data collection sources are some of the topics covered. The classes are a combination of videos and text modules with a quiz at the end of each lesson. The program is accessible for 12 months. Courses can be repeated for refreshers, and unlimited users have access to the program with one username and password.

In addition, the software gives users the option of monitoring machine data on-site or from the cloud. Text and email notifications alert users to machine issues. It is compatible with MTConnect, OPC UA, Fanuc Focas and ModBus.
