RACE™

“Romaric Automation Control Engine”

 

Rock-Solid Stability

With over 50 deployments worldwide, RACE provides the rock-solid stability demanded by 24/7 factory automation systems. Its multi-layer architecture facilitates reuse across a wide variety of software applications, as any layer can be replaced or modified as necessary. All of Romaric’s software applications are built on RACE, which accounts for approximately 70% of the total source code of each application.

Ultimate Flexibility

RACE I provides the core enterprise services such as database persistence, high availability, failover, transactional integrity, security, low-latency event logging, data caching, process management and inter-process messaging. RACE II adds to those services automation-specific functions like scheduling, equipment communication drivers, device management and statistics gathering. Any application built on RACE inherits these necessary, robust and scalable services. RACE is also designed to be computer platform and database agnostic, allowing the customer to determine the deployment computer hardware, operating system and database.

Semi Standards

The RACE device driver set includes all the equipment communication standards as defined by SEMI (SECS-I, SECS-II, GEM, SSEM, IBSEM, E153 and others), plus many other non-semi interfaces.
