The Hermes Standard is “The next big thing” in integration of mixed vendor equipment in SMT assembly lines: Where “the old world” was based on “signals” and dedicated wiring, The Hermes Standard is based on TCP/IP and XML, enabling smooth connections of equipment along the line…
The Hermes Standard revolutionizes the way SMT equipment manages board handover in mixed vendor lines.
The Hermes Standard, published as well under IPC-HERMES-9852, is a non-proprietary open protocol, based on TCP/IP- and XML. It enables equipment takes exchange of PCB related data between the different machines in electronics assembly lines to the next level.
Being an IPC Standard, global acceptance is guaranteed. With a broad range of equipment vendors supporting it, global availability and support are a given fact.
