CONNECTIVITY PORTFOLIO | What is MTConnect (SHDR)?
SHDR is the underlying protocol of MTConnect, a standard which implements the communication between an MTConnect Adapter and MTConnect Agent. Its purpose is to standardize communication between machines, controls etc. and software applications from varying manufacturers.
The MTConnect Adapter is running on the machine or device and translates data to SHDR while the MTConnect Agent is usually running on a separate device or server, aggregating and serving the data.
In situations where no MTConnect Agent is available, you can directly hook into this communication with Connectware. The protocol is read-only and reports all process data of machines including conditions, alarms and events.
The leading Factory Data Hub Connectware is suitable for the first steps of digitization up to the Smart Factory transformation. In addition to universal shopfloor connectivity, Connectware creates a scalable data infrastructure for digital projects without limits. One single platform for all IIoT projects, independent of applications and vendors.
