This is the Dual Lane version of the SMEMA Hermes Adaptor, there is also a Single Lane Version with the same features.

With the release of the IPC-HERMES-9852 Standard and its intent to replace the existing SMEMA standard, SMT manufacturers require an upgrade path for their existing equipment.

Where available, an software upgrade is the obvious upgrade path for manufacturing equipment, however this may not be available for 'dumb' equipment such as conveyors.

AUSTIN, our Dual Lane SMEMA Hermes Adaptor mimics the SMEMA Upline and Downline states, by retrieving the Hermes board data from the equipment previous in the line, and retrieves the Hermes Ready, Not Ready, state from the equipment next in-line, this is then converted into SMEMA signals for the legacy equipment to interpret.

The Adaptor is a hardware device that has both Upline and Downline SMEMA JR12 Connections, an Ethernet port for Hermes connections, and runs on a powerful single board computer. One Adaptor is required for each piece of equipment that lacks Hermes compatibility.

An RS232 serial port is available for automatic conveyor width adjustments or other legacy equipment communication.

Configuration is conducted by a MultiPlug Extension which also handles all the Hermes software connections.
