  • Page 21: Overview

    OVERVIEW The MES interface function allows SQL text transmission from a GOT to a database in the server computer connected via the Ethernet, enabling writing GOT's device values to the database and reading database values to set them to GOT's devices. This direct communication with the server computer eliminates the need for gateway equipment, realizing reduction in the maintenance cost and improvement in reliability.
  • Page 22: Features

    1.1 Features This section explains the features of the MES interface function. (1) Simple setting enables connection to the information system without programming. Access to information system databases can be realized simply by making the necessary settings with the setting tool. Since there is no need to create programs for generating SQL texts, the engineering costs for system construction and the work period can be reduced.
