Nikon Corporation (Nikon) has launched the “Remote Control SDK” software compatible with the CNC Video Measuring System “NEXIV” series for automatic measurement system integration.
“Remote Control SDK” is a tool for developing software routines to control the “NEXIV” via a network. Through remote control of “NEXIV”, electronic, semiconductor, and small equipment components can be measured and inspected, meeting the increasing needs for accurate measurement and inspection in line with shorter delivery time and low cost.
Also, it is possible to remotely control up to 10 “NEXIV” units, helping to improve the productivity of the production line.
In the recent trend of automation on the production floor, there is a demand for remote control solutions for video measurement systems that measure electric components.
Especially in the recent coronavirus pandemic, these needs are increasing. Nikon provides a “Remote Control SDK” which can remotely control “NEXIV” from the control room or office, saving manpower and automating the production floor.
Control Multiple “NEXIV” Systems Remotely
Up to 10 “NEXIV” systems can be controlled remotely, enabling centralized management and distribution of measurement programs and results in one place. By controlling “NEXIV” and measurement programs from a location away from the production factory, such as a control room or office, will streamline manpower and improve productivity
Easily Create Control Software to Optimize Factory Operations
“Remote Control SDK” is SDK* with abundant support tools such as a sample of code and sample applications. Functions for “NEXIV” can be easily customized and used in software depending on the operation.
