Sercos at IANA Show -- The Sercos User Groups invite you to visit us in booth E-4448 (in the Lakeside Hall) at the Industrial Automation North America Show, Sept 12-17 at McCormick Place, Chicago.
Sercos will present two multi-vendor interoperability demos plus other products from member companies. Multi-vendor interoperability demo #1 includes 16 automation products from 10 manufacturers connected using the Sercos automation bus. Multi-vendor interoperability demo #2 includes 23 Sercos products from 11 manufacturers, all running interoperably. We'll also have products from other Sercos manufacturers in the booth.

Multi-Vendor Demo 2.
Users are encouraged to interact with the demos: use the touch screen to select product details; scan QR-codes for additional information; move and set the position of the absolute and linear encoders; activate load cells; perform safe motion functions using CIP safety over Sercos while the light curtain is broken; operate multiple safety systems; move the capacitive Ethernet coupler; command VFD, stepper motors and actuator; and explore gateways and bridges to other Ethernet networks, viewing results on the display.
Visitors can see Sercos real-time redundancy in action when an Ethernet cable is disconnected or damaged by cutting it, disrupting communication, then the cable is later restored. The system detects an interruption/restoration within one cycle, indicates it on the screen, switches modes and remains fully operational during the interruption.
FREE Webinar -- Sept 26, "Integration of IO-Link into Sercos." This webinar explains how IO-Link is integrated into the Sercos® protocol and how to implement IO-Link gateways or use IO-Link devices subordinate to Sercos. Topics will include: sub-bus structure in the Sercos FSP_IO; sub-bus tunneling protocol; IO-Link data transmission--cyclic, acyclic, diagnostics; sub-bus startup, device identification; device and port configuration; and an example of usage within the PLC.
