-Connected Machining/Industry 4.0-
With its new 1.3.0 software upgrade, HEIDENHAIN's StateMonitor system offers today's CNC manufacturers a modernized and most effective way to connect their control and PC systems. Including newly added StateMonitor options, users involved in this Industry 4.0 connected machining initiative can now more simply view data and evaluate control processes remotely and in real time. This can be used to connect and monitor both HEIDENHAIN and non-HEIDENHAIN controls.
Some of the new 1.3.0 StateMonitor enhancements and features include:
• MaintenanceManager (option 6) allows for appropriate organization of maintenances and recording of their execution.
• Signals (option 7) allows for the collection of machine-specific signals and their monitoring over any period of time.
• Database Enhancement - The transition to a more powerful PostgreSQL database and unique IDs enables a further reduction of access times to the collected data.

As a monitoring system, StateMonitor places an overview of the machine status at the user's fingertips at all times, making it possible to react quickly in case of faults. The software helps to avoid unnecessary downtime and bottlenecks while at the same time improving machine utilization and availability. The machine data is available on any device that has a current web browser installed, no matter where its user is located —even on a tablet or smartphone.
