Maxmize you CNC memory with Nexas upgrades for almost all of your Fanuc & Yasnac controls. Reduce setup time with a memory upgrade today.

ORiON Production Interface (OPI Unit)

The Nexas OPI Unit is designed to be connected to most CNC machine tool controls to enable DNC and machine monitoring on both wired & wireless networks. The latest version, called the OPI-3 allows for Gigabit Ethernet, dual serial ports and a bar code interface. An OPI-4 is coming that will have 5 analog Inputs and 1 Output for spindle utilization and tool life management options.

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, etc).

ORiON Production Interface
  • The OPI is easy to install with its magnetic mount
  • Easy to configure with browser interface management
  • DNC capability (including protocols) is embedded
  • Gigabit LAN & 802.11 B/G/N Wifi Support
  • Built-in Linux with SAMBA server support for mapping of drives
  • 8 Gigs of factory non-rotating SD Flash media (expandable)
  • Also supports 2 external USB 2.0 ports
  • High speed RS232 serial support for CNC file loading & DNC (1 & 2 port versions)
  • The OPI can take 7-30VDC for incoming power supply (the usual is 24VDC for most controls with HAAS being 12VDC
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.

Green Light Production Monitoring

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.

  • Local MTConnect adapter for legacy machines
  • Data can be sent out to our Gateway via sockets
  • Virtual Stack light history
  • Browser-based mobile reporting is available
  • Realtime data can be sent to ERP or e-mail
  • Supports kanban boards, tablets, smart phones
  • Reporting options are unlimited ...
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.

CNC Memory Upgrades

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.

  • Almost all Fanuc & Yasnac memory upgrades offered
    - Fanuc 6/9/11/12 Bubble Memory Units
    - Fanuc 10, 0 & 15 memory upgrade kits
    - Fanuc 16/18 A/B/C memory upgrade modules
    - Fanuc 16/18/15/21 i A Series memory upgrades
    - Yasnac MX/LX 1/2/3 & i80 memory upgrades
  • Unique Yasnac J300 Series Memory Upgrade Kits
  • Machine Tool BTRs that replace tape readers
  • Option & Parameter optimization - CNC parts
