Connecting into your automation systems
Caroline Smart, 11-02-2011
One of the things that we’ve been working on for many years is how to make it easier for our customers to connect our products into your existing systems or networks. We work with top vendors and organizations to make sure that Cognex products link to a wider range of factory automation equipment than any other range of products. Whether you connect directly to a PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) or manage multiple systems remotely from a networked PC or HMI (Human Machine Interface), Cognex Connect™ assures a seamless reliable communications link between Cognex products and all of your equipment on the factory floor.
For DataMan® barcode readers, Cognex Connect supports protocols like SLMP (Seamless Message Protocol), EtherNet/IP, PROFINET, PROFIBUS, Modbus TCP, FTP, etc.
