Sercos International will present a variety of demos at Hanover Fair—Hanover, Germany held April 25-29—including the Sercos III SoftMaster, developed in cooperation with Bosch Rexroth, ISG Industrielle Steuerungstechnik and Tenasys.

Also at the Sercos booth will be a conceptual approach that simplifies the integration of machinery in manufacturing. Sercos says it developed this approach in collaboration with ODVA and the OPC Foundation. A uniform network infrastructure where Sercos telegrams, CIP messages and TCP/IP telegrams run via a single cable allows mechanical engineers and users to reduce costs and complexity involved in machine integration. At the same time, they are able to keep using their preferred product suppliers and automation devices.

A Hexapod demo, various demo boards and products from a variety of companies which produce Sercos-capable products will also be on display at the show. Among them are new drives and controls from Bosch Rexroth, a Sercos Slave and Ethercat Master in one single device from Cannon-Automata and more.
