Sercos N.A.
405 Loblolly Bay Dr.
Santa Rosa Beach, FL, 32459

Press release date: December 11, 2013

A moderated forum and technical innovations proved to be a crowd-puller

Sercos International, supplier of the SercosŪ automation bus, displayed twelve other demo points from different manufacturing companies as well as exhibits from more than twenty companies (including many new products) on advertising columns at the joint stand in exhibition hall 6. In addition, a multi-vendor Plastic Electronics Demo was a crowd pleaser. As a result, the user organization's growth trend is set to continue. Increasingly more companies are developing Sercos-enabled devices, and more and more people are choosing Sercos technology!  

Among others, the compact high-performance low voltage LVD Sercos III servo drive, from Servotronix, a weight transmitter from Laumas and the fido5000 REM switch from Innovasic were present for the first time. Phoenix Contact also displayed a new media converter and Automata presented the A2-PAC programmable automation controller. Different safety solutions, such as SafeLogic and SafeLogic compact from Bosch Rexroth, as well as the AS-i gateway with CIP Safety on Sercos from Bihl+Wiedemann added to the presentation of new products.

One of the highlights was the new CIP Safety on Sercos conformity inspection system which is now available for implementing conformity tests for CIP Safety on Sercos devices. This can be used for originator as well as for target implementations regardless of whether the safety functionality is a component of a Sercos master or slave device.

The hourly moderated forum "Sercos in practice" proved particularly popular. In this context, different topics were discussed on the basis of the multi-vendor "Plastic Electronics" demo from Bosch Rexroth in cooperation with Sercos International, Bihl+Wiedemann, Hilscher and Vision Control. Sercos-based automation systems, Safety & AS Interface, Vision & Motion as well as Ethernet transparency were also discussed.
