I am interested in doing some development for the Fanuc 31 control to start with. However I have a specific starting goal and want to see if it is possible otherwise I may have to abort. My main interest is in process information.
  • Tool data (cycle time, tool life, tool parameters) Read some and read / write others.
  • Control variables (Ex: #500) and possible access them by the name assigned to the variable. (#510 TOOL_NO)
Also can some items be event driven and when they change send the event to the client or must the data be polled?


Thanks,

Sorry this answer hasn't been address sooner.

Currently (as of 11/30/2015) MTConnect does not support sufficient Cutting Tool data or variables. However, inclusion of Assets in the next release should cover information such as tool life and tool data parameters.

As for your question about triggering an event, you are correct. The data must be regularly polled. You could, however, create a simple application that detects changes and sends an email, signals a light, honks a horn, or whatever else you might want to do. Applications can be made using various languages such as C++, Java, .NET, etc. or even using the data controls in existing programs such as Excel or Access.
