v. 1.4.0 of Heidenhain's StateMonitor software platformClick image to enlarge

Heidenhain has introduced version 1.4.0 of its StateMonitor software for remote monitoring and data evaluation during real-time manufacturing. 

First introduced in 2019, StateMonitor is an important option with Heidenhain TNC controls, enabling users to digitally connect and evaluate machine tool data on company networks as part of the Industry 4.0 initiative to boost efficiencies. 

Connected devices can include CNC control systems of varying brands as well as PCs and web-based mobile devices such as tablets or smartphones.

The software is designed to highlight data usage and encourage time-saving workflow methods using clear-cut charts and graphs. Among the new features of this latest iteration is the ability to monitor tools within a connected machine. This allows users to collect current tool usage data and avoid unnecessary costs due to premature tool replacement.  The new software can also now view countdowns for any programs running.

Other new functions include the ability to view monitored signals on the Machine Status page, as well as String Signal data. And users can now customize machine status by adding additional ones and changing to their liking when the machine is considered “Productive.” Heidenhain says these new features were added at the request of past users.

A customer also now has the option to purchase a single machine license and then add on the more common five-machine license (StateMonitor Option 1) later if desired. The StateMonitor Single Machine license already contains the “OPC UA Interface” so machines with 3rd-party CNCs can be connected as well.

Heidenhain is also providing additional StateMonitor Software Maintenance and Support. The maintenance plan lets customers upgrade the software easily whenever a new release is available. A new direct international email support line is now also available for highly technical or development questions.
