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)
Sercos may be found may be found in the following industries:
- Machine Tools
