For packaging applications, plant automation, and manufacturing where end users frequently utilize customized OEM equipment in conjunction with their overall process automation schemes, the Message Manager provides the unique benefit of allowing end users to transfer PLC data from OEM equipment to a Rockwell Automation PAC/PLC without modifying the OEM’s code. This eliminates the need to access the OEM source code, which may not be available. It also eliminates concerns about affecting the OEM’s machine operation and/or owning and maintaining other PLCs’ programming software.
