MTConnect Standard Part of VIMANA Connect by System Insights


Berkeley, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/08/2014 -- VIMANA Connect by System Insights is a suite of hardware modules, software applications, and services to support MTConnect compatibility with legacy devices and sensors. Standards are a vital element in building The Internet of Manufacturing Things. Manufacturing data is highly complex, and the specialized technical knowledge needed to work in the domain, acts as a deterrent to innovation and new ideas from the outside. Manufacturing operates as islands of excellence; innovation occurs in specialized areas and not shared across the wider enterprise. Standards repair these non-integrated behaviors by providing a transparent way to exchange information and increase visibility across these islands. One standard that is proving very effective in bridging these islands is the MTConnect standard.

System Insights’ Chief Technology Officer, Dr. Athulan Vijayaraghavan recently shared , “VIMANA Connect is a key enabling technology for System Insights’ VIMANA predictive analytics platform; providing compatibility for legacy equipment that is not capable of native MTConnect support. The VIMANA Connect suite includes MTConnect configuration services using the most accurate interpretation by the authors of the standard. Each VIMANA Connect product comprises of hardware, configure services, and data analytics software.”

System Insights will exhibit VIMANA at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) at Booth: E-4736 Pavilion: IANA. The show will be September 8-13 at McCormick Place, Chicago IL.
