Cogiscan’s Co-NECT is a unique, standalone and neutral connectivity solution that addresses the greatest challenge in the industry at this point: Connectivity between different machines, software and enterprise systems. This technology enables Industry 4.0 for electronics assembly. Co-NECT supports all existing and future industry standards such as SECS/GEM, CAMX, ZVEI, JSON, as well as proprietary interfaces from leading MES and machines vendors.
The Cogiscan connectivity layer, Co-NECT, enables data exchange in real-time in very large manufacturing sites with hundreds of machines. The architecture and supporting infrastructure is optimized to ensure that there are no delays or any lag in response time, regardless of how many lines / machines / workstations are connected.
Co-NECT is built upon the standard Cogiscan TTC platform that has been around for more than 15 years. It adapts to every customers’ environment, regardless of the mix of machines and software solutions already in place. The use of a third-party connectivity middleware means that each customer can keep their options open for the future instead of limiting themselves to a single vendor solution.
Premiering in 2008, the NPI Awards program is an annual celebration of product excellence in electronics surface mount assembly. Premier products based on the finest examples of creative advancement in technology are chosen by a distinguished panel of industry experts.
