Open Control Systems are the key enabler for the realization of modular and re-configurable manufacturing systems. The large number of special purpose machines and the high level of automation have led to an increasing importance of open control systems based on vendor neutral standards. This paper gives an overview on the past, present and future of Open Controller Architecture. After reflecting onthe different criteria, categories and characteristics of open controllers in general, the CNC… CONTINUE READING
