We offer this Quad Core 64 Bit Linux ORiON Production Interface (OPI) 3.0 Unit that can be installed in most CNC machine tools to enable wireless networking for DNC file transfer & monitoring.
The Green Light System is an OPI-based monitoring system that can be expanded to handle DNC, user input & spindle monitoring. We also work with other MDC systems as an edge device.
The Nexas OPI Unit is designed to be connected to most CNC machine tool controllers to enable wireless DNC and machine monitoring. The current version, called the OPI 3.0 allows for Gigabit Ethernet, dual serial ports and a bar code interface. An OPI 3.0 has also been made for a special application related to automated tool offset loading with a bar code. Soon an all new OPI 4.0 Mark II will be coming that will have 4 analog Inputs and 1 AUX TTL Input for spindle utilization and tool life management options - complete with embedded part program file transfer DNC of course...
As well, the OPI can also work as a CNC network bridge. In that mode the CNC Ethernet port goes to the OPI LAN port, which then uses the OPI's Wifi connection to bridge to the corporate part program server. This OPI network bridge feature is useful for modern CNCs that have LAN network connectivity, but not wireless (e.g. Fanuc, Mazak, Haas, Yasnac, etc).
The OPI Gateway can be act as a local internal data server, bar code interface or a Gateway Relay to our Cloud Server for secure Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications. Our goal security-wise is to make an ITAR compliant wireless DNC & machine monitoring system.
The Nexas Green Light System is a simple technique to monitor the normal stack light production signals (or equivalents) - namely InCycle (Green), Idle (Amber) and Alarm (Red). Our Nexas "Tool Power Sensor" soon to be available, will allow us to add Tool Life Management to the Spindle Utilization data that can be collected.
The OPI unit can also be used for DNC file loading and at the same time leverage the 8 optically isolated inputs to achieve this real time monitoring. Our goal is a simple economical MTConnect adapter that enables all your legacy machines to be compatible & online.
The OPI Gateway acts a data hub for multiple OPI Units (one in each machine tool). This Gateway can be act as a local data server (for browser support in the plant) or as a Gateway & Data Relay to a our Cloud Server for secure IIoT applications.
The Nexas leadership started over 20 years ago with Fanuc CNC Memory Upgrades and helped design and install the other controllers like Yasnac. We still have memory upgrades for all the Fanuc 6, 9, 10, 11,12, 0,15,16,18 etc controls, and even have BTRs (Tape Reader Replacements) for the older Fanuc controllers if needed.
That said, we are the only company servicing the Yasnac J300 with a Memory Upgrade kit. We handle the Yasnac MX/LX1/2/3, i80 and J300 as well. We also supply many other upgrades for the CNCs on your factory floor with leading edge products & service.
Add more capability and reduce setup times with the legacy memory upgrade that you always wanted. Call us before you call the OEM or even the Dealer.
Call our Nexas Sales line today at 905-581-3718 to learn about ways to optimize your factory floor with our IIoT - Industrial Internet of Things - technology.
