M2M controller for SMT Line - SEMI standard communication interface
Siemens to release SEMI Standard Interface M2M controller for SMT line
What is new SEMI standard* interface?
- Send product data and product together
- Connect multi-vendor machines
* SEMI standard
SEMI A2 Specification for Surface Mount Assembler Smart Hookup (SMASH)
SEMI A1 Specification for Horizontal Communication (HC) Between Equipment for Factory Automation System
SEMI A1.1 Specification for Media Interface for A Horizontal Communication (HC) Between Equipment
Why need new communication standards in SMT line?
- Data and material separately • • • IO signals(SMEMA)
- Many communication protocol • • • Special protocols
- Throw data and material together in between machines
- Easily communicate with multi vendors
→ Unify communication protocol between machines
But difficult to implement all machines in the line
How to implement SEMI A1 / A2 interface?
What advantage to use Siemens products ?
- SEMI A1 / A2 interface libraries free of charge
- Support a communication interface of automated product change with TCP/IP or RS485(232C)
- Easy parameter set and commissioning without engineering tool using web server
- No.1 PLC global market share and many users in the world, Global service over 200 countries
