Cogiscan Inc., a provider for Track, Trace and Control (TTC) solutions for the electronics manufacturing industry, has recently introduced their Co-nect production software. It supports all existing and future industry standards such as SECS/GEM, CAMX, ZVEI, JSON, as well as proprietary interfaces from leading software and machines vendors.
The company’s Co-nect is a unique, standalone and neutral connectivity solution that addresses a great challenge in the industry: connectivity between different machines, software, and enterprise systems. This technology enables Industry 4.0 for electronics assembly. The connectivity layer of this software 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 company’s 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.
