Citizen machines come equipped with either a FANUC or a Mitsubishi Control.

Citizen Machines with Mitsubishi Controls
Mitsubishi is the most commonly used control on Citizen machines. There are several Mitsubishi control-types, each with different requirements for data collection. Citizen machines with Mitsubishi controls may require a software update to ensure that MachineMetrics integrates successfully. Ensuring the control software is up to date is critical to a successful integration.
Meldas - Meldas controls are too old for data communication and need I/O integration. Please please refer to our article on Integrating MachineMetrics with I/O as your primary resource.
M600 - M600 controls require an I/O integration.
M700 - All Citizens with a Mitsubishi M7/700 control support the MachineMetrics MTConnect Adapter, If you have an M7/700 series control you would like to integrate, please contact your Customer Success Manager.
