FirstPAGE Gateway for COPA collects data from one or more COPA compliant work cells (FIS, AVI, etc.), allows business rule definition against the collected data, and sends messages to FirstPAGE Server for processing. Information such as name, trigger test, value, and various obtained values from COPA sources are all available for message composition.
Supporting COPA data sources such as FIS and AVI, FirstPAGE Gateway for COPA can monitor any COPA compliant work cell for data exceptions. The offline test can be utilized to report on downed PLCs feeding, for example, a FIS work cell.
