Indusoft was used to integrate a Genmark Robot with a Omron PLC controlled laser for wafer etching. The Genmark robot used a serial port for communication to the Indusoft PC HMI. The Omron PLC controlled laser used Ethernet for communication to the Indusoft PC HMI. VB Scripting was used in Indusoft to control sequencing between robot and laser. This is a temporarily set up and will be controlled with hardwire I/O point in the future.
