CYAN Intelligent makes good use of WebAccess/SCADA solution to optimize the PCB baking operation for the electronic factory
As a VIP member of Advantech’s WISE-PaaS Alliance, CYAN Intelligent has utilized Advantech's WebAccess/SCADA IoT platform and related hardware products to successfully integrate the equipment and IT management layers of a PCB factory. The functionality and open development environment of Advantech’s WebAccess/SCADA solution has ensured that CYAN Intelligent can collect equipment information from production lines and import production records into the factory’s current manufacturing execution system (MES). The company also designed a foolproof mechanism to minimize human error. Furthermore, production history records can be used as a reference for future process optimization.
- IPC-7132 industrial computer
- EKI-1222 dual-port Modbus gateway
- ADAM-6251 digital input module
- ADAM-6256 digital output module
On the equipment layer, data are collected from the thermostat via RS-485 to Ethernet with the EKI-1222 gateway, which connects via TCP/IP to the IPC-7132 industrial computer. The IPC is also connected via TCP/IP to the ADAM-6200 series modules for oven control, and via USB to a barcode scanner for inputting work orders. WebAccess/SCADA software, which is installed on the IPC, stores the data on an SQL Server database and can also communicate with the management system on the IT management layer for importing production data into the MES and obtaining work order parameters from the MES and then sending to the underlying equipment.
