WS XML Interface documentation

The documentation of a machine prepared for data acquisition by „Weihenstephan Standard” occurs digitally in an XML-device description file according to a given pattern. This file includes the physical connection and the definitions of all data points. By automatic evaluation of this interface definition by the higher IT system (client) data acquisition is possible according to the principle „Plug & Play“.

The software tool WS Edit which enabling a user-friendly construction of device description files, as well as the management of data point libraries was developed by the industrial partner KHS GmbH.
