System Blocks and Functions

 

Industrial End System (iES)

iES’s is the logical end system units, iES units handle communication, control signal processing, hardware interfaces, implement advance interface logical control and monitoring functions called Industrial Service (iS).

 

Industrial Service Port (iSP)

Industrial Service Port (iSP) unit responsible for the hardware interfaces (e.g. sensors, controllers, memory …), control and management.  advance hardware design technics which enable simple integrity and modularity, implement advance autonomic complex functions in hardware, simple to modify, simply add new / modify interfaces, user can set simple script for each of the interfaces for power up port initialization, automatic task’s and management tasks
