Cogiscan Co-NECTs Machines, Software and Enterprise Systems at APEX
Cogiscan Inc., the leading Track, Trace and Control (TTC) solutions provider for the electronics manufacturing industry, announced plans to introduce its new Co-NECT Production Software in Booth #3132 at the 2017 IPC APEX EXPO, scheduled to take place Feb. 14-16, 2017 at the San Diego Convention Center in California. Cogiscan’s Co-NECT is a unique, standalone and neutral connectivity solution that addresses the greatest challenge in the industry at this point: Connectivity between different machines, software and enterprise systems. This technology enables Industry 4.0 for electronics assembly.
Co-NECT supports all existing and future industry standards such as SECS/GEM, CAMX, ZVEI, JSON, as well as proprietary interfaces from leading MES and machines vendors. The Cogiscan Co-NECT connectivity layer enables data exchange in real-time in very large manufacturing sites with hundreds of machines. The architecture and supporting infrastructure is optimized to ensure that there are no delays or any lag in response time, regardless of how many lines / machines / workstations are connected.
Co-NECT is built upon the standard Cogiscan TTC platform that has been around for more than 15 years. It adapts to every customers’ environment, regardless of the mix of machines and software solutions already in place. The use of a third-party connectivity middleware means that each customer can keep their options open for the future instead of limiting themselves to a single vendor solution.
