User opinion

From a drive bus to a universal bus with more than 4 million real-time nodes implemented in automated machinery: Sercos technology offers all benefits of a standardized, proven real-time Ethernet mechanism – saving resources while ensuring a high standard of user friendliness.

Dr. Thomas Bürger
CEO of Sercos International e.V.

Almost 10 years of positive experience with Sercos controls and drives is why we decided to use Sercos as the system bus in our machines and systems. Thanks to the real-time performance of Sercos for motion and I/O, as well as an option to easily integrate TCP/IP services, we expect that future developments will produce essential added-value for our production machines.

At 3S, there was never any doubt that we would implement Sercos  in our CoDeSys system. We have had very good experience with Sercos II. The excellent level of drive profile standardization allows us to operate devices from a variety of manufacturers without time consuming driver development or modification.

Manfred Werner

Machine manufacturers demand faster and faster, highly precise motion as throughput requirements increase. Operator safety requires more and more intelligent machine function awareness and control. The future demands ever greater energy efficiency. Sercos is at the forefront of meeting these demands with a level of reliability and flexibility that is unsurpassed.
