On this site you find the Universal
Dispenser Communication Protocol. This protocol describes the way communication
has to take place between dispenser driver software and the point of sale software.
This standardization improves the quality of the communication and reduces cost
and development time for new and changed point of sale and driver software for colorant
To maximize the success of this protocol
it was decided to create a public standard, which can and will be used by all parties
in the market involved in the usage and production of dispenser driver and point
of sale software. The UDCP has a GNU FDL. GNU FDL means the (terms and conditions
of the) GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.2, November 2002, as published
by the Free Software Foundation Inc. (http://www.gnu.org)
This protocol development was led
by AkzoNobel and developed in cooperation with CPS Color, Dromont, FFM, Füll engineering,
Hero and Lenteq, resulting in the first release of version 1.0.
Possible new developments on the protocol
are allowed by all parties in the market. To assure the best standardization possible
it was agreed with the initial development group of version 1.0 to create a change
control board which is seated by AkzoNobel. In case you would like to change anything
to the protocol please get in touch via MMSupport@akzonobel.com.
