Sercos International announces free Sercos Softmaster webinar

February 3, 2017 - Sercos International, supplier of the Sercos automation bus, will present a free Sercos III SoftMaster webinar on February 20, 2017 at 4PM CET.

By using a Sercos III SoftMaster, a Sercos III master device can be implemented without a specific FPGA or ASIC Sercos III hardware controller. Instead, a standard Ethernet controller is used and the Sercos III hardware functions are emulated in a host-based driver software. With this implementation approach, sufficient real-time performance can be ensured for a large number of applications. If an Ethernet controller is used that operates with multiple queues and a telegram scheduler (e.g., the INTEL i210™), a synchronicity similar to that of a hardware-based master can be achieved.

A speaker from Bosch Rexroth AG will present detailed information about:

  • Application areas of the Sercos SoftMaster
  • The software architecture
  • Features and performance
  • A short outline of the demo package
  • Integration into OEM machine controllers 
  • Tools for commissioning
