As of June 1, 2013, all new DMG/Mori Seiki machines equipped with MAPPS control with an MTConnect Standard V1.1 compliant MTConnect Adapter.

With pre-installed MTConnect Adapters, DMG / MORI SEIKI customers will have a plug-and-play solution that allows easy, real-time monitoring of their machines—from anywhere, at any time. This remote-monitoring capability is enabled with MTConnect—a standard, open Web protocol that allows interconnectivity between manufacturing equipment, peripherals and software. For data collection, archiving and reporting, customers have the option of choosing DMG / MORI SEIKI as their single-source remote monitoring vendor, or a third-party vendor.

MTConnect is an open, royalty-free standard. The MTConnect Standard V1.1 compliant Adapter on MAPPS control provides basic remote monitoring capabilities that include current machine operating status, overrides, alarm conditions and work count with exact time stamp in real-time.
