SIPLACE Setup Center is a software tool for reliable setup verification and data storage. With Setup Center, users can check whether the components are correctly set up before the production line starts up. With the new ‘SIPLACE MSD Monitoring’ function as part of SIPLACE Setup Center, moisture-sensitive devices can now be tracked and managed across the entire placement process. Once relevant data such as the MSD exposure time, MSD shelf life and MSD level has been loaded into the Setup Center database via XML, it is centrally available for the entire setup and placement process. To cover the entire process, Setup Center also maps the dry-storage systems. The MSD option stores the MSD opening date and time, i.e. the point in time at which the hermetically sealed packaging of the MSDs is opened. For online and offline controls, the system compares this MSD exposure time with the manufacturer’s specifications. As soon as the exposure time of the reel expires, the SIPLACE MSD Monitor issues an error message and blocks it from further use. Furthermore, it notifies the operator that he or she must return the reel(s) to the dry-storage cabinet. Users are also able to enter the exposure time, residual life cycle and level themselves with the SIPLACE MSD Editor. The programming of the new MSD option in accordance with customer-specific requirements can be performed by the user himself or by the SIPLACE team.
