MiniViz® is a PC-based monitoring and data gathering solution specifically designed to meet the needs of small manufacturers who are just entering the world of remote equipment monitoring.

An MTConnect® standards-based tool

As an MTConnect® standards-based tool, MiniViz® overcomes common barriers of fuller-featured monitoring products through its effectiveness, simplicity, and low cost.  Compared to complex enterprise-based systems, MiniViz® significantly reduces the expense of the application software, machine connections, and required computer hardware.  By design, MiniViz® requires minimal training.  It also provides a distinct advantage in allowing users the ability to directly select and record the individual data items that provide the best insight for their situation.

MiniViz® features include:

• Displays of machine status and recent history with informative dashboards
• Purchasable online and user installable
• Connect, display, and record information from up to 12 machines simultaneously
• No server required – which means no ongoing maintenance by the system provider!

How MiniViz® Works:

MiniViz® runs independently on each user’s Windows® PC, laptop, or tablet.  It connects directly to the MTConnect® Agents to gather individual machine data.  PC hardware requirements are minimal, allowing you to use existing computing equipment.


Minimum Requirements: 

  1. Machines and other devices connected to the company network (wired or wireless)
    • MTConnect® ‘Native’ that provides the standard MTConnect® XML output
    • MTConnect® Adapter for machine compatible with MTConnect® Agent (available from TechSolve)
  2. Windows®-based computer (PC) XP or later
  3.  Microsoft .NET 4.0 or later
