Press release date: April 16, 2014

Hannover Fair confirms growing interest in Sercos technology 

Sercos International, supplier of the Sercos® automation bus, registered high interest in Sercos-capable products at Hannover Fair.

A broad portfolio of Sercos-enabled products and growing demand for high performance Ethernet automation busses was responsible for the increasing demand. Visitors to the Sercos joint booth saw that Sercos offers a solution for any application.

One of the highlights was a demo engraving machine from Schneider Electric. Interested parties could receive an engraving and see Sercos live in action at the same time. The new Modicon LMC078, a logic-motion controller for up to 16 servo axes, demonstrated how NC-applications can be implemented using a standard motion controller and the Sercos automation bus.

Bosch Rexroth introduced its new SERCANS Sercos master module with the slogan "one cable instead of three." This is one of the first products for the common Sercos III and EtherNet/IP infrastructure. The parallel communication of Sercos III, EtherNet/IP, TCP/IP and safety-related communication significantly eases automation and allows engineers and system integrators to combine devices from different manufacturers that support Sercos, EtherNet/IP or TCP/IP. This PC plug-in card simplifies the automation of individual machine modules as well as entire machines.

Image processing and the coupling of Sercos with AS-i (actuator-sensor interface) were also hot topics.

Vision & Control presented its pictor® and vicosys® camera systems, plus a demo that showed a high performance Sercos-driven camera in action.

The interconnectivity of Sercos with AS-i were of special interest to visitors who were looking for easy, cost effective and flexible networking at the lowest automation level, while also easily networking with the specific needs of the machine and/or plant. Bihl+Wiedemann presented AS-i systems which perfectly complement industrial Ethernet systems for transmission of process data and safety data.

Various new products from additional manufacturers rounded off the exhibition presence of the Sercos user organization.
