ODVAODVA announced that Bosch Rexroth will become one of the organization’s principal members, joining suppliers Cisco Systems, Rockwell Automation, Omron and Schneider Electric. Bosch Rexroth’s increased participation builds on its long-term support of ODVA technologies and the ODVA organization in which it has been an active member for several years, ODVA noted. Users will benefit in the increased availability of ODVA-compliant products under the Rexroth brand, especially those implementing the EtherNet/IP network, according to ODVA.

With another industrial automation supplier supporting ODVA as a principal member, ODVA said it will have "unequalled critical mass among industrial networking organizations." This will help further establish global standards that integrate the three main domains of the industrial enterprise to the market – production, enterprise and utility – through automation and interoperability, the organization said; as a result, users reduce risk through lower cost of ownership and global, multi-vendor solutions for automation systems.

Bosch RexrothODVA will introduce Bosch Rexroth as a principal member at its 2011 Industry Conference and 14th Annual meeting, to be held March 1-3, 2011, in Phoenix, Arizona, where Bosch Rexroth will also present an overview of the company and its motivation to become a principal member of ODVA.
