Uptime has the in-house software engineering capacity to customize MDSI
OpenCNC to your needs, fully integrating with it via the OpenCNC API. Much of
our work is highly specialized in nature, but several packages may be generally
The Tool Monitor is a product of Uptime Electronics for monitoring machine
tool life on a CNC display. It is a standard Win32 application that is tightly
integrated into the MDSI OpenCNC environment. When installed, it is launched by
the MDSI control menu alongside all other OpenCNC modules.
The Uptime Virtual Joystick is an add-on to OpenCNC. Normally
2-axis movement is difficult using OpenCNC without an external physical
joystick. Uptime's Virtual Joystick eliminates the need for such additional
hardware -- appearing on demand and disappearing when it is not needed.
The Uptime Virtual Joystick 2D is the second generation of the Uptime Virtual
Joystick for OpenCNC described above. Implemented using Microsoft's latest .NET
technologies, the Virtual Joystick 2D affords the user 2 new modes of totally
free 2-dimensional axis movement with dazzling transparent graphics.
The Uptime Pound Variables Viewer is an extra window added to
OpenCNC for viewing the contents of pound variables used by part programs. All
variables may be changed simply by clicking on them and using MDSI's standard
keypad. This is an excellent tool for troubleshooting complex programs.
The Uptime Significant Events Monitor is a hidden utility that monitors the
MDSI OpenCNC Significant Events log. As events are added to the log, it
searches for keywords that the integrator has identified as interesting.
Keywords that indicate an "urgent" event trigger an instant email notification,
with the entire event log attached, to one or more email addresses.
Additionally the entire daily event log may be emailed to one or more addresses
at the end of each day.
