Version FabLink Suite - SECS/GEM - Interface



The universal SECS/GEM Interface for any equipment control in the photovoltaic and semiconductor industry. FabLinksuite is the industry-specific interface solution for vertical integration of production equipment in the photovoltaic and semiconductor industry. It implements all necessary SEMI Standards like SECS-II (SEMI E5) with communication over RS232 (SECS-I, SEMI E4) or TCP/IP (HSMS, SEMI E37) as well as the requirements of the Generic Equipment Model (GEM, SEMI E30) such as the Control State Model. FabLinksuite is the shortest path to the SEMI-compatible interface through graphical configuration. FabLinksuite is based on VACsuite and profits from the functional variety, flexibility and graphical programming of the VACsuite development environment.

The variety of process interfaces (OPC, S7-communication, Profibus, CAN-Bus, Ethernet...) also allows existing equipment to be retrofitted - regardless of the hardware platform.

FabLinksuite is a component of the VAC-based product family for equipment controllers such as ToolControlCTC and VMEC - VAC Modular Equipment Control.
