The Sercos (serial real-time communication system) interface is a globally standardized open digital interface for the communication between industrial controls, motion devices (drives) and input output devices (I/O). Sercos is designed to provide hard real-time, high performance communications between industrial motion controls and digital servo drives.

  • Collision-free communication through the use of a time-slot mechanism.
  • Ability to control, for example, 60 axes of motion at an update of 250 microseconds for each and every drive (Sercos III)
