EIB Factory is built on the Equipment Information Bridge (EIB), a patented and industry-proven software technology platform that provides a robust and flexible connectivity solution meeting the demands of mission-critical equipment software and your evolving manufacturing needs.
As the foundation for all next-generation PEER Group connectivity products, EIB enables fast and reliable communications to any number and type of equipment such as sensors, end-point detectors, and add-on chambers. EIB provides the latest factory automation standards including SECS/GEM, GEM300, PV2, and Interface A (EDA) as well as general purpose communication protocols such as OPC, Microsoft COM, .NET, and WCF.
Custom communication mechanisms are easily added in order to integrate specialized software applications, non-standard equipment communications, or 3rd party peripheral devices to your host.
With EIB Factory’s configuration, factory deployment, debugging and troubleshooting utilities, and code samples you can further reduce your implementation time. Using EIB's data management client sample, Data Management Explorer, data client development time is accelerated enabling rapid validation of data collection plan configuration, plan activations and transmitted data.
