SECS/GEM and PV2 factory connectivity software for equipment

EIB® GEM provides SECS/GEM or PV2 (PVECI) connectivity to any type of high-technology equipment. This next-generation product leverages the success of its predecessors, PEER Group’s GWGEM®, which has over 40,000+ licenses shipped, and GEM4Tools™, a SECS/GEM OPC solution. Combining these products with EIB’s state-of-the-art software technology, PEER Group engineers have developed a highly-efficient and innovative multi-connection GEM connectivity product.


EIB GEM provides SECS/GEM compliance to numerous HMI/SCADA software packages that support OPC including Modbus, Rockwell's RSView32 and FactoryTalk View, Wonderware Intouch, GE's Cimplicity and iFix, Siemens' SIMATIC WinCC, and National Instrument's Labview.
