Goepel electronic’s PILOT Connect software now ensures that inspection systems from the company, even those from other vendors, can easily connect to any manufacturing execution system (MES) in the factory. It guarantees an integration of the respective AOI, AXI or SPI system into the MES infrastructure of the customer within a few weeks, at the latest with the installation of the system on-site at the user.
Standard interfaces such as ZVEI, iTAC, Aegis, SECS/GEM, GEP, CAM, and the most recently released IPC CFX are supported. The systems can also interact with customer specific MES solutions. The fast connection is achieved by a sophisticated plug-in system of PILOT Connect. With a ready-to-use framework, the communication is realized by an own development team in exchange with the customer, even at short notice. In addition, there is sufficient flexibility to respond to custom demand from manufacturers.
In the PILOT Connect interface to the MES, data exchange takes place either on a pure result level (unidirectional) with product-specific control and process interlocking (bidirectional), or with production data acquisition. Extensive statistical evaluation options for all connected systems are available, as well as central repair or verification stations with display options for all inspection results involved.
