SERCOS vendors launch packaging profile

SERCOS N.A. reports that the SERCOS vendor organizations have developed a Pack Profile in response to a request by the OMAC Packaging Machinery Working Group. The Pack Profile defines a subset of the SERCOS interface functions for packaging machinery to further improve the multi-vendor interoperability of servo controls and drives.

SERCOS N.A. reports that the SERCOS vendor organizations have developed a Pack Profile in response to a request by the OMAC Packaging Machinery Working Group. The Pack Profile defines a subset of the SERCOS interface functions for packaging machinery to further improve the multi-vendor interoperability of servo controls and drives. Products from various vendors that conform to the Pack Profile will provide plug-and-play functionality for packaging machinery. A conformance test to ensure interoperability is now available.

A Pack Profile interoperability demo, with controls and drives from multiple vendors, will be presented at Pack Expo 2004, Nov. 7-11, in Chicago.

The published Pack Profile specification, plus a white paper on the subject, are available at www.sercos.com .
