OPC 40082-3 describes the interface between injection moulding machines (IMM) and liquid silicone rubber (LSR) dosing systems for data exchange via OPC UA. The target of OPC 40082-3 is to provide a standardised interface for IMM and LSR dosing system from different manufacturers to ensure compatibility.
The following functionalities are covered:
- General information about the LSR dosing systems
- Status information
- Process data Synchronisation of dosing between IMM and LSR dosing systems is not part of OPC 40082-3 and must be done by additional interfaces e.g. via hardwired signals.
Safety related signals like emergency stop are not included.
