The Hermes Standard is designed to replace the previous SMEMA interface, in which communication from individual machines was reduced to signals and a scanner was required in front of each machine to identify assembly. Hermes technology is enabling for “smart factories” and Industry 4.0 protocols.
The Hermes Standard offers an overreaching protocol for machine-to-machine communication (M2M) in module manufacturing. The objective is to improve the board-flow-management and the traceability across all stations of an SMT line. The Hermes Standard uses modern communication technology and standardized data formats for M2M communication.
