Interfaces Definitions
 

Hardware Interfaces

Hardware interfaces are designed to transmit status information at certain events (e.g. "valve gate open", "automatic switchover to holding pressure" or "separate reject part").
These events maybe transmitted from the PRIAMUS system to a machine, a robot or
a peripheral device, as well as in the opposite direction.

Physically and typically this involves a voltage level (e.g. 0 V / 24 V) which represents the logic status "0" and "1". In the future this will also be possible fully digital via a real time bus


Communication Interfaces

Communication interfaces are used to read an write actual and set values based on a communication protocol (such as Euromap, SPI or manufacturer specific protocols). This involves for instance injection speed profiles, holding pressure profiles or hotrunner nozzle temperatures.

In principle all parameters defined in the protocol maybe sent and received.
Physically these data are being transmitted for instance to the hotrunner controller or to the host computer of the machine via interfaces such as e.g. RS-232, RS-485 or Ethernet.
