Laser System Configuration and Job Monitoring
Users benefit from both centralized and distributed control of XLS laser systems with the Embedded PC option. This feature gives users the ability to connect over Ethernet or WiFi to XLS laser systems via the Laser System Manager (LSM). The topology for control and monitoring a XLS laser system with the Embedded PC option is completely flexible. This topology can range from a centralized model of one user interfacing with many XLS laser systems to a distributed model of many users interfacing with a single XLS laser system. The Embedded PC directly controls all functions of the XLS laser system, resulting in a minimal amount of information being exchanged over the remote link, permitting real-time monitoring of all aspects of Embedded PC XLS laser systems from a central control point, as well as real-time control of all functions including job selection, job parameters, and job control. Printing and Direct Import are supported over the remote link as well.
