Sercos International Presents a Multi-Vendor Demo at the Industrial Automation North America (IANA) Show

Sercos International, supplier of the Sercos® automation bus, will present a multi-vendor interoperability demo at IANA in Chicago, IL, September 8 to 13 at booth 4865 in the McCormick East Building.

The multi-vendor interoperability demo shows various automation products connected using the Sercos automation bus including the Bosch Rexroth XLC (eXtended Logic Control) PLC, IndraDrive Cs servodrive, various IO devices (Inline, S20, S67 and VAM panel), SafeLogic compact safety control, and HNC100®-3X hydraulic axis controller. Additional Sercos devices include an Aventics pneumatic valve system, Cannon-Automata SSI Gateway for Encoders, Feller Engineering's multi-channel temperature controller, Festo's pneumatic valve terminal, a halstrup-walcher positioning system, RiceLake's Laumas Load Cell Transmitter and a TR-Electronics programmable absolute encoder.

Cannon-Automata will present a demo of the new A2 PC based-Intel Atom dual core equipped Programmable Automation Controller. The A2-PAC device family combines the advantages of a PC-based control with the typical features of PLCs and motion controllers.

Also on display will be Bihl+Wiedemann's AS-i 3.0 Sercos Gateway with integrated safety monitor for CIP Safety on Sercos, which can be used to transmit data from safety input slaves and to safely control safety output slaves via CIP Safety.

Peter Lutz, Managing Director of Sercos International, will present "Trends in Industrial Communications for the Factory of the Future" on Tuesday, Sept. 9 from 9.00-9.55 am in room W190. Part of his presentation will be on the blended infrastructure conceptual approach that simplifies the integration of machinery in manufacturing. True to the slogan "Fewer cables, less complexity, easier machine integration," Sercos International developed this approach in collaboration with ODVA and the OPC Foundation. A common network infrastructure where Sercos telegrams, EtherNet/IP messages, CIP Safety messages and TCP/IP telegrams run on one single cable allows mechanical engineers and users to reduce the costs and complexity involved in machine integration. At the same time, they are able to continue using their preferred product suppliers and automation devices and can benefit from more than 1,000 connection options.

A first impression of the presentation can be gathered during a webinar on July 30 from 10.30-11.00 am Eastern Time. Interested parties can log into the webinar.
