MES Interface Module
Along with ever-changing manufacturing trends, improving machine productivity and maintaining manufacturing quality through meticulous traceability have become a fundamental part of manufacturing. MES Interface modules address these requirements by providing direct database connectivity for IT systems and facilitating automatic SQL*1text generation using intuitive configuration setup software. Modules allow production data from the shop floor to be inserted into database records directly; for example, providing real-time production status that enables quicker response to production-related problems.
Extensive data handling from shop floor to business process systems
e-F@ctory is a solution from Mitsubishi Electric realizing leaner operations, improved yield, and efficient management of the supply chain through its direct connectivity between an IT system and the shop floor. The MES Interface enables this direct connectivity by allowing production data to be inserted into database records directly, for example.
Direct access to IT system database
Realize improved production management and reduce overall system costs through real-time direct access to IT system database servers without requiring additional programming and gateway computers.
Production data directly inserted into database
The MES Interface module allows production data to be inserted into database records directly. The transmission of data can be event-driven providing real-time production status, enabling quicker response to production-related problems. Additional features are also included such as DB buffering, which enables data to be sent even when a connection between the database server and control system is lost.
System configuration costs reduced by 65%*2
MES Interface modules enable direct connectivity between IT database servers and programmable controllers on the shop floor, eliminating the need for gateway computers or specified programs. Being much more reliable than computers, the MES Interface saves on maintenance costs typical of computers.
High-speed and large-capacity data collection
Along with ever-changing manufacturing trends, improving machine productivity and maintaining manufacturing quality through meticulous traceability have become a fundamental part of manufacturing. The MES Interface module addresses these requirements with its high-performance and large-capacity data handling. These features are exceptionally useful in glass and rechargeable battery manufacturing industries.
*4: Comparison of data sets that can be handled in database communication. One project may contain up to 4096 data sets for the MELSEC-Q Series, and 65536 for the MELSEC iQ-R Series.
Intuitive and easy-to-use setup software
The setup of the module can be done easily using its wizard-like configuration tool. SQL sentences can be automatically generated just be setting various parameters in the tool, without having to develop dedicated programs to enable communication with the database server.
