Easy data supply for Domino printers
Domino is one of the leading identification technology manufacturers, which is used across various industries and industry segments. The OPC Router is able to connect all printer of the following series: A-Series, A-Series+, as well as printers with the CODENET protocol.
The connection to the many different plug-ins of the OPC Router is done graphically by Drag&Drop. Label printing can thus be supplied with data from various systems and existing media breaks can be eliminated. The electronic transmission of the correct print data at the right time saves time by avoiding manual activities and money by avoiding wrongly labelled goods due to input errors.
Achieve More with Combined Systems
Printing systems are very important for product labeling. Wrong or missing labels can result in sizeable economic damage. Using the printer in combination with the data transmission capabilities of the OPC Router will help prevent huge time losses and costs due to human error.
Industrie 4.0 for Domino
Manual configuration is a thing of the past, since the OPC Router und the Domino plug-in establishes your Domino printer as one link system item within an Industry 4.0 infrastructure.
About the OPC Router
That’s how easy it is.
The transfer object of the Domino plug-in contains the printing commands.
The configured template contains comand sequences, and can be enhanced with dynamic fields. The fields need to be created in compliance with the layout. During transfer, the respective fields are filled with the transferred values. Upon completion, the resulting command sequence is sent to the printer.
The Domino plug-in does not have trigger functions of its own but uses the standard trigger functions the OPC Router offers.
The Domino plug-in extracts the filled-in dynamic parameters from inside the command sequence and makes them available for selection.
How do Transfer Objects, Triggers and Browsing work?
The connections the OPC Router establishes between systems can be addressed with the core functions of the OPC Router.
Depending on the nature of the respective plug-in, functions vary, which is due to the functional scope of the respective connceted systems.
Sources and Destinations
Homegeinity on the Outside – Heterogeinity on the Inside
Triggers determine execution time of data connections. Various Triggers can be used for these connections, independent of transfer object type. Within each connection, several triggers can be used together via AND/OR-connections.
Triggers can also be useful as data sources if the prompting event is combined with data reception.
Searching and Finding Data Fields
Easy browsing also makes data field configuration easy when establishing transfer objects in order to establish the respective interface connection. The browsing mechanisms may vary, depending on the system and its available plug-in.
Reading out Structures
Many plug-ins that are available for the OPC Router offer easy search and selection tools for quick identification of respective data fields without the need for specific knowledge about inherent subsystems. The user can easily browse through the data. Data source structures may vary according to the specification of each respective plug-in.
