The following OSP Controls support MTConnect. For all other Okuma controls, an IO Integration is required.
Before we get into the list, it is important to note that THINC is the Okuma machine operating system for the control types listed below. The THINC API is the interface layer between the backend and what you see. Because MTConnect gets all of its data from THINC, if the THINC API is too old, it will need to be updated in order for MTConnect to connect to the API. This is the case with the OSP 200 and OSP 100-II, as noted below:
- OSP 300
- Requires MTConnect update installed from the THINC App Store. Easy to Self Install. If MTConnect comes with the machine, it's likely an older version that has no part counter or custom variables.
- OSP 200
- Requires both a THINC API Update and MTConnect installed from the THINC App Store.
- OSP 100-II
- Requires both a THINC API Update and MTConnect installed from the THINC App Store. Other OSP 100 controls do not support MTConnect
Updating the THINC API
THINC API updates must be done by Okuma. Please contact your Okuma dealer to learn more.
