What’s new in this release
As factories advance their manufacturing processes with analytics, high-performance data collection becomes critical for driving increased productivity and yield. In this release of EIB® OEM, we focused on addressing evolving requirements for high-performance, large-volume data retrieval during equipment operation.
For higher response times, we optimized EIB’s retrieval of historical trace data so it performs 40-60% faster. For example, data clients can now leverage our advanced time series data collection interface to retrieve 1,000 trace samples, each with 1,000 variables, in approximately 2.5 seconds. We also updated EIB’s segmented data retrieval capabilities to support high-volume data collection and large historical databases. EIB can now retrieve historical data efficiently from a database containing up to 6 million rows.
While these enhancements allow clients to request large volumes of historical data, the client’s inability to receive the requested data could impact equipment performance. To prevent performance impacts, we introduced a configurable queue allowing integrators to limit accumulations of historical data requests. EIB now rejects excessive client requests and records them in log files.
Because many equipment makers have supported factory initiatives for increased analytics data by adding more SV and EC variables on their tools, this release of EIB introduces configurations for postponing namelist requests from equipment, which allows factories to prevent unexpected delays during equipment startup. Using new remote commands, the factory can design the optimal timing for synchronization of equipment SV and EC variables.
