SECSConnect

SECS/GEM Software Library

The SECSConnect™ software product is an easy-to-use library of functions for sending and receiving SECS-II messages (E5). SECS-II messages can be transported by either the HSMS-SS or the SECS-I protocols. The product includes features that support message logging and communication diagnostics. SECSConnect is available stand-alone or bundled with the CIMConnect™ product.

Both equipment suppliers and factories use SECSConnect as a driver for SECS messaging or to develop tests to verify an interface.

Cimetrix products are supported on Microsoft software development packages and platforms, along with VMware implementations of supported platforms. For more information about the specific development environments and platforms, request the SECSConnect Technical Overview.
