Cassette transfer between process equipment and transport equipment is performed by means of a mechanical operation in the interactive area and requires quick response and reliable interlock signals.


The purpose of this Specification is to provide a cassette transfer parallel input/output (I/O) interface for control of the interface mechanism that supplements the SECS standard for material movement.

This Specification deals with the parallel I/O interface for the cassette transfer between two pieces of equipment, such as a piece of process equipment and a piece of transport equipment.


This Standard defines the wire-connected parallel I/O interface between two pieces of equipment and the photo-coupled parallel I/O interface between the process equipment and the transport equipment.
