Anyone know of a comprehensive (recorded, not mental) list of adapters by machine or control builder? The MTConnect Institute member roster is a good start, but each OEM has slightly different situations with adapters and how to get or install them.

I'm getting a ton of calls from customers ready to buy or OEMs trying to offer connectivity, and I'd prefer to have a common source rather than answering each question one-off. The Technical Advisory Group also has a working group trying to put together a full machine "compatibility guide" which would probably cover this topic as well.

Briefly, here's what I know for sure are out there:

DMG/Mori Seiki
Fagor
Fanuc
GF Agie Charmilles
Okuma
Makino
Mazak
Siemens
Sodick

There is no way this is comprehensive. If I skipped your company or an adapter you wrote just say so as long as it's public information.

EDIT: Pulling all the items in the thread into this post.

EDIT 2 12/3/2018: Updating the list below.

Mazak Optonics now supports MTConnect out of the box on new laser cutting machines. I'm not sure if they've extended the standard to include any laser-specific data items.

Two clarifications:

Level of support and methods for interfacing with the control are not universal across this list. Not all models or years of a particular builder are supported completely or at all. For now, contact the vendor for specifics. A more comprehensive listing of model-by-model support is in the works but is a much larger undertaking than this list.

If the underlying control architecture is supported, a vendor outside this list might be supported or relatively easily implemented. For example, many controls are built on top of Mitsubshi or Fanuc. Whether that matters still depends on the year and model number, though.

The Mazak Optonics Adapter will be native on the PREVIEW3 control. I have asked that they make the PREVIEW2 control support it as well.

There are extended TAGS that will be forwarded to the appropriate working group to be considered as part of the specification.

The Siemens 840D control has a number of third party vendors offering adapters, although it's not clear whether these are different adapters or the same adapter from multiple resellers.
