This latest SERCOS technology offers a one-network choice for synchronized motion, safety, I/O and information over Ethernet. Elau will continue to support an open system architecture by implementing all field and device bus solutions that have earned acceptance in the packaging industry for users preferring to continue to segregate their networks according to functional requirements. SERCOS III combines real-time performance and supports safety applications up to SIL 3 (Safety Integrity Level) according to IEC 61508.
