MTConnect standardizes factory device data.

The MTConnect standard offers a semantic vocabulary for manufacturing equipment to provide structured, contextualized data with no proprietary format. With uniform data, developers and integrators can focus on useful, productive manufacturing applications rather than translation. Data sources include: machine tools; production equipment; sensors and sensor controllers, and other factory hardware. Applications that consume MTConnect data provide more efficient operations, improved production optimization, and increased productivity.

Scalable system architectures depend on standards. MTConnect provides domain-specific vocabulary and data models, is extensible, and integrates with other standards by design.
