ProWorks Now Supports Machine Hardware Control With CAN Bus Interface

May 24, 2010

POMONA, CA — ProWorks, a division of Everett Charles Technologies and a leading developer of process control and work instruction software, announces that it can now support machine hardware control using a CAN Bus interface.

ProWorks has traditionally helped capital equipment manufacturers build products, not only by walking their operators through the step-by-step processes to build the product, but also by taking over control of equipment using an RS-232 interface. This control is typically used to cycle the equipment, take measurements from the equipment, and log those results without human intervention.

A new feature of the interface for ProWorks version 7.2 is the ability to control equipment through a CAN (Controller Area Network) Bus interface, which is very common among PLCs and machine interfaces.

“The introduction of CAN Bus support inside ProWorks will significantly improve the flexibility of ProWorks for our customers, and it keeps it in a league of its own as a Work Instruction Solution,” said Randy Crockett, Software Engineering Supervisor, Everett Charles Technologies.
