Interface to SMEMA using Ethernet connections and a event based architecture

  • Compact Design
  • Low Cost
  • Speedy Setup
  • Headless Device

As we move towards a Smart Factory, IT Professionals and Solutions Engineers who traditionally work within the digital economy need to interact with legacy interfaces found on SMT production line equipment.

This adaptor allows such people to either interact with the raw SMEMA signals found on legacy equipment or using the MultiPlug Edge Computing Platform allows them to create a solution using building blocks of MultiPlug software extensions.

Such solutions may be to use SMEMA as an interlock to pause and check if a product should proceed down the production line to the next manufacturing equipment. To achieve this the Adaptor acts as a SMEMA middleman, not turning on either the Machine Ready SMEMA signal, or the Good/Bad Board SMEMA signal until the software check is made.

It is important to understand when purchasing this Adaptor that it is provided with no software solution apart from the MultiPlug as a building block so it’s wise to contact us first to collaborate with any possible solution. The MultiPlug SMEMA Extension provides basic Stop/Start of SMEMA signals using an event based architecture.

Software Engineers can also interact directly with the Adaptor’s I/O by creating their own software as the Adaptor runs a Linux operating system and is based on a single board computer. They can also create their own MultiPlug Extensions to handle bespoke functionality.

The Adaptor also features a RS232 serial port and 4 USB ports for connections to other equipment on the production line. A real time clock makes data logging possible.
