– Pack ML –
Pack ML is an automation standard that makes it easier to transfer and retrieve consistent machine data. The primary goals of Pack ML are to encourage a common “look and feel” across a plant floor, and to enable and encourage industry innovation.
Anyone building or working with a Pack ML enabled machine can expect a common look and feel and consistent defined behaviours even if they come from different manufacturers and use different control systems.
Pack ML defines a common structure for machine states, operating mode and packets of information that the describe an machines condition know as pack tags.
This is a packaging standard used in the machine control sector, specifically for packaging machines.
