We offer this Quad Core 32 bit Linux ORiON Production Interface (OPI-5) Unit that can be installed in most CNC machine tools to enable wireless networking for DNC part program file transferring & monitoring.
We work with various software vendors to offer an OPI-based monitoring system that can be expanded to handle DNC, user input & AI optimized production. We can work with any MDC system as an edge device.
The Nexas OPI Unit is a smart edge device designed to be connected to most CNC machine tool controllers to enable wireless DNC and machine monitoring. The current version, called the OPI-5 allows for Gigabit Ethernet, dual serial ports and a bar code interface. The OPI-5 can have various machine monitoring add-ons - PLCs for I/O pickup of digital and analog I/O. The OPI-5 can interface with 3rd party machine monitoring software as well.
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. later generation Fanuc, Mazak, Haas, Yasnac, etc). The OPI-5 is your open, Linux-based, smart edge device that is truly a web-enabled, secure client to enable whatever manufacturing optimization applications you need.
The OPI-5 is scalable as can be expanded and redeployed over and over in various machines. The latest advances include development of a vision based machine monitoring system leveraging Augment Reality (AR), and the eventual use of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Also there is now a licensing capability for "Hardware as a Service" (HaaS) style deployments. We also have a economical OPI-1 with 8 opto isolated inputs now available.
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.
Partnering with various software vendors (including now Excellerant, LLC), we can provide machine monitoring system optimizes the machine cycle times between jobs and uniquely inside the running cycle. The idea is to optimize when jobs are scheduled and watch carefully for M00 optional stops to optimize cycle time by leveraging fewer operators to do more. The software gives an operator insight into what will be coming and a countdown timer to see when they will be needed thus reducing wasted IDLE time.
Our Nexas OPI units are used for machine data collection to enable this optimization and for DNC file loading. Nexas strives to offer 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 any Cloud Server. We are happy to be working with MES Solution Providers for a cloud-based machine optimization, monitoring, and scheduling applications for instance.
The Nexas leadership started close to 30 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. We even have OPI Networking solutions for SELCA CNC machines now.
Add more capability and reduce setup times with the legacy memory upgrade that you always wanted.
