In addition to a fresh graphics approach, the website now offers a greater depth of information on the Sercos automation bus.
Sercos is making recordings of webinars on the topic of “CIP Safety on Sercos & EtherNet/IP” and “Common Sercos III and EtherNet/IP Infrastructure” available free and on-demand.
The test tool offers the possibility to automatically test the full CIP Safety on Sercos protocol functionality of a device in order to prove the compliance with The CIP Safety specification.
WHITE PAPERSin Sercos Automation Bus

ODVA's Machinery Initiative improves the integration of manufacturing machinery with the industrial ecosystem. ODVA has adopted an open approach to this initiative which includes alliance partnerships with OPC Foundation and Sercos International in order to foster cross-collaboration on topics of mutual interest for machinery applications. This white paper describes this cross-collaboration.

Using intelligent controls, axes and components that are not necessary in current production processes can be switched off. Especially with flexible production, the energy saving that can be achieved via SERCOS Energy is enormous.
CASE STUDIESin Sercos Automation Bus
Marietta Nondestructive Testing uses Rexroth’s digital servo drives and controllers with SERCOS to follow intricate path planning for scanning complex, curved objects with tightly controlled motion tolerance.
The BrentonPro Series Mach-2 uses a Rexroth integrated motor/drive and motion logic control platform and SERCOS to improve machine performance, save space, lower costs and save energy.
Antiquated analog controls and motors at Royal Vendors were replaced with IndraDrive M servo
drives and asynchronous motors with SERCOS that return wasted energy to the system.
