We have been hard at work developing and fine tuning what we believe is the best solution on the market for collecting and storing MTConnect data. Our customers have given us great feedback on what kinds of solutions they are looking for and we have designed our newest applications to be the answer.
The DataClient and DataServer applications we open sourced became very popular with nearly 1000 downloads between the two since January. Many of the users of these applications contacted us with feedback and to describe what their needs for data collection were within their company. This led us to put much of our focus on further developing a solution for these customers and we are proud to introduce our newest application...
The new MTC2SQL application combines what we did in the DataClient and DataServer applications as well as introduces a brand new Configurator interface to make setup and maintenance as easy and straight forward as possible. MTC2SQL is specifically designed to read MTConnect data and store that data in a SQL database. With tools like Data Filtering and Automatic Device Discovery, setup is easy and extremely customizable. MTC2SQL is built to allow users to store machine data for further analysis and most importantly to take control of their own data!
We are currently expanding on the open source AnalyticsServer application and will be releasing the TrakHound Analytics Platform around the first of the year. This platform will allow for open source modules for either accessing the data through a REST Api or running continous analytics on the raw MTConnect data that is stored using TrakHound MTC2SQL.
We still have the DataClient application available to download for those that are using our cloud hosting service. We will be updating this application to be more specific for our cloud hosting in the near future.
We have redesigned and repackaged the Device Monitor application to include a 24 hour server for temporary data analysis. This is the newest iteration of TrakHound Community package. We are packaging this app to be the simplest way to get started with MTConnect.
We still offer the TrakHound Community download that has been our most popular app for those that prefer the older version.
