ETHERNET MACHINE CONTROL
Machine Control is a fundamental – and critical – component of any automation system. Whether acquiring, processing or playing media, there’s a piece of hardware somewhere carrying out that task. NVerzion’s EMC-NT solution enables the control of all system elements via a network-based protocol that simply links the operator to his workflow.
EMC-NT allows for the control of any device such as file servers, character generators, routers, and more by constantly awaiting machine control requests from other applications across the Ethernet connection. These requests are then executed using a dedicated serial or Ethernet connection from EMC-NT to the appropriate device.
EMC-NT can also be configured to perform delegation, meaning a certain station or application can be given priority, providing dynamic source conflict resolution. This feature is especially useful in applications where a certain piece of equipment is being utilized for multiple functional areas.
|Controls multiple machines along a distributive network||Provides fail-safe environment|
|Allows multiple applications to utilize any machine in the network||More efficient operation with network-based control|
|Each EMC-NT can control up to 16 devices||Supports and interfaces with legacy machine control systems|
|Loop-through capability available for use with master control interfaces||Allows individual control or delegated control by the overall automation system|
