MTConnect (SHDR)


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.

What is MTConnect (SHDR) used for?

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.
