Enhanced StateMonitor
With its new 1.3.0 software up- grade, HEIDENHAIN’s StateMonitor system offers today’s manufacturers a modernized and 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 evalu- ate control processes remotely and in real time. This can be used to connect and monitor both HEIDENHAIN and non-HEIDENHAIN controls.
A uniquely easy installation and start-up process of the StateMonitor software on a company network is now
enabling many companies to quickly become familiar with machine-data acquisition. And because HEIDEN- HAIN is also committed to adhering to strict user ownership of data, users are finding their individual needs can be met. This includes dictating the amount and types of data collected for viewing from their various production facilities, as well as the specific appli- cations evaluating it.
Some of the new 1.3.0 StateMonitor enhancements and features include: Maintenance Manager which allows for appropriate organization of main- tenances and recording of their execu- tion. Signals allows for the collection of machine-specific signals and their monitoring over any period of time.
And Database Enhancement which is the transition to a more powerful PostgreSQL database and unique IDs enables a further reduction of access times to the collected data.

the structure, stiffness has been uprated without making the guideway thicker, leading to more precise motion control.
The results are higher measuring accuracy, whether a touch trigger probe or scanning probe is used, coupled with the possibility to increase speed of operation. The compact ALTERAC machines, are available in three sizes with measuring volumes of 700 x 650 x 500 mm, 1,000 x 650 x 500 mm and 1,000 x 650 x 650 mm,.
All machines now accelerate at 1,900 mm/s2, representing an increase of 15% for the two smaller models and 20% for the largest model. Velocity is up by 38% across the product range to 720 mm/s.
