Fanuc MTConnect Agent

MTConnect Agent for Fanuc CNC Equipment using Focas over Ethernet

Configurator

Configurator

The Configurator provides a user interface to configure and manage the MTConnect Agent and Adapters. The Agent is setup during install and each Adapter can be added/removed using the Configurator. When a device is added, the appropriate adapter is installed, the adapter is added to the agent.cfg file, and the Device is added to the devices.xml file.

Agent

The agent is based on the cppagent project available at https://github.com/mtconnect/cppagent.

Adapters

The adapters are based on the Fanuc adapter that is part of the project available at https://github.com/mtconnect/adapter/tree/master/fanuc.

Installation

Compatible with 0id and 30i Fanuc Controllers supporting Fanuc Focas over Ethernet

Installation requres Administrator privileges and may display UAC dialogs which must be accepted throughout the installation process

Step 1

Download the latest Release and run the installer executable on a PC networked to the Fanuc Controller. Select the directory to install the Agent (typically the default path is acceptable) and click Next.

Once the status for the newly added Device changes to "Started", the Agent is ready to be used and can be accessed using a web browser (Firefox, Chrome, IE, etc.) by navigating to "http://127.0.0.1:5000/current". Once all of the devices needed are setup, you can close the Configurator window.
