Smart Wireless Connectivity for CNC Machines

FBR-100AN is a dual band wireless bridge for CNC Machines. It bridges factory machines on the floor to the monitoring systems using MTConnect. MTConnect is a communication protocol which is used by many major manufacturers to efficiently connect factory machines to their host systems. 

Machine tool manufacturers and users can collect machine operation data on factory lines and transfer them to the host system using wired or wireless LAN to reduce maintenance cost and improve their operation. 

Protocol Converter for CNC Machines

FBR-100AN does the machine language translation for the monitoring host, which traditionally is done using a PC or a designated computer. FBR-100AN is a compact unit that can not only do the machine protocol translation but can send it via wireless to the monitoring stations. 

It is compatible with Fanuc’s CNC-equipped machine tools and equipped with the open protocol MTConnect, a protocol which has been widely adopted by machine tool manufacturers in the United States. OPC UA is another machine communication protocol that is supported by FBR-100AN. It is the recommended protocol by the European Industry, in cooperation with FANUC. 

FBR-100AN allows machine tool manufacturers, system integrators, and their users to collect machine tool operation data in the factory and connect to a more sophisticated wired /wireless LAN system.
