The T2 communications protocol makes it possible to manage the entire marking process of several marking units simultaneously from a PC or PLC.
This is a robust, 100% reliable communications protocol featuring a large set of commands that permit changing any of the controller’s general parameters as well as the marking parameters.
Manage the entire marking process from an automated PLC with a set of 11 input and 7 output digital signals as well as 3 timers.
In addition to fixed meaning signals (error, pause, ready, reset, and binary marking), the programmable inputs and outputs in combination with the timers give users an option to control various external electromechanical devices or to create simple automatisms.
A computer is not required to run the COUTH pin marking systems. However, users can attach a computer to the T2 controller to add further ease of use and additional capabilities.
MECCO provides two programs at no cost to assist with faster programming and additional features: MCEDIT2 and MCVector. The MCEDIT2 Windows-based software allows you to quickly and easily create marking files that can be loaded on to the dot peen controller. The MCVector program is used to create logos and other graphics in the proper language for the controller.
Aside from these standard programs, we also have the ability to create custom software to help with data integration and ease of use.
Create marking files on a computer quickly. This easy-to-use marking file creation and editing software application is designed for use with the T2 controller.
Use this software to convert logos and graphics to work with the COUTH marking systems. Simply import a CAD file, bmp, or jpg image and trace the graphic to convert the image into a format supported by the T2 controller.
Getting one digit wrong in a hand stamped serial number can greatly increase the labor involved. Between that and the extra labor of deepening a mark, Walkup Co. faced mounting costs. Read how their switch to computerized pin marking proved successful for their traceability applications.
