DEK’s Intelligent Scaleable Control Area Network architecture enables intelligent machine communication for complete control and flexibility.
Based on Field Bus technology, ISCAN transmits packets of information digitally to deliver unprecedented economic efficiency and reliability for manufacturers. Facilitating advanced communications for unrivalled machine control, ISCAN users can now request the distance and speed a motor travels, rather than simply turning it on and off. Plus, the motor can effectively ‘reply’, transmitting details about when it reaches position, the velocity profile and amount of current used. Ultimately, this means that manufacturers can read power supplies and check circuit status without even opening up the machine.
As a consequence, next-generation ISCAN technology is equipped to deliver comprehensive trend analysis, monitoring overall machine health and predicting routine maintenance. This advance in machine control technology enables manufacturers to simultaneously reduce machine downtime and optimise performance for a faster time to market. In addition, ISCAN reduces wiring by around 40% compared to conventional screen printers while also considerably simplifying the upgrade process.
