New Record Number of Attendees at 12th Sercos Plugfest
Sercos International, supplier of the Sercos® automation bus, welcomed technology and automation vendors as well as end users from various industries on October 23 and 24 to its 12th Sercos PlugFest.
The two-day event took place at the Institute for Control Engineering of Machine Tools and Manufacturing (ISW) at the University of Stuttgart, Germany. More than 30 products, many of which were newly developed, were intensively tested with each other to insure users of the interoperability of Sercos products. Among the tested products were CNCs, PLCs and motion controls, electrical and pneumatic I/O systems, servo drives, safety components, encoders and various infrastructure components.
The Sercos test laboratory used this occasion to test the latest releases of development-, test- and certification tools prior to their finalization.
Peter Lutz, Managing Director of Sercos International, was very pleased with the number of attendees and the positive feedback of all participants. "We are very pleased to see how well the PlugFest has been accepted by the Sercos community. With more than 30 attendees, we've seen a new record in participation. Additionally, we welcomed a number of vendors for the first time at the PlugFest and they used the opportunity to convince themselves of the high grade of interoperability that the Sercos Automation bus provides."
The 13th Sercos PlugFest is scheduled for May 7 to May 8, 2014.
