From 10th to 12th of May we presented our BiSS-to-EtherCAT-Gateway on the measurement fair SENSOR+TEST 2016 in Nuremberg. The Gateway, that is based upon our Modular Control System, establishes a connection between the powerful and digital sensor-actuator-bus-system BiSS-Interface and the real-time-capable fieldbus-system EtherCAT and therefore enables the possibility to use advanced sensors with the digital BiSS-Interface in various closed loop controls.
After our successful debut at the SENSOR+TEST last year, the Robot Makers GmbH also takes part at the Measurement Fair in Nuremberg this year. From 09 to 12 May 2016 the possibilities of the electronic series Modular Control System are shown together with the central control- and evaluation-unit Generic Control Box and the software framework Finroc®, in a scenario of modern measurement technology. As a special innovation, our BiSS-to-EtherCAT-Gateway is presented, that connects the both powerful bus systems, BiSS-Interface and EtherCAT.
