Based on a modular architecture, MCL-Collection provides two layers a communications layer and a host interface layer to integrate your MCL applications with your host.
The first layer is comprised of communications servers:
MCL-Link V3 – Handles batch, point-to-point, serial uploads and downloads
MCL-Net V3 – Handles data in real-time over WiFi, GPRS, and Ethernet for networked, concurrent users
The second layer consists of MCL-Bridges that sit on top of the communications servers and provide the interface with your host system(s).
Whats more, MCL-Collections modular architecture enables MCL-Link and MCL-Net to use multiple MCL-Bridges concurrently. This allows your MCL application to update, for example, SAP, Oracle, and an Excel spreadsheet all at the same time. Drive your shop floor operations from SAP and, at the same time, record the transactions in an Excel spreadsheet to give your operations manager a quick summary of the days activities.
Bridge the gap between your shop floor or field application and your host application And with this host access, keep your operations running smoothly while assuring timely and accurate data.
