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. Both EIB Factory and EIB OEM are built upon the same technology which means that many OEMs are using the same automation software technology as their customers.
EIB Factory provides the latest factory automation standards including SECS/GEM, GEM300, PV2, and 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 Factory’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.
