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.
One year after our successful trade-fair-debut at the SENSOR+TEST 2015, we were also present with a slightly enlarged booth at the joint booth for young innovative companies of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy, this year. Thereby, we wanted to keep our customers up-to-date about current developments in the field of mobile automation. This year, our presentation was focused on the powerful sensor-actuator-bus-system BiSS-Interface, that has become more popular in the last months, because of the many advantages digital sensor interfaces have. The BiSS-to-EtherCAT-Gateway of Robot Makers GmbH is the first gadget on the market that establishes a connection between BiSS-Interface as a sensor-actuator-bus-system and the fieldbus-system EtherCAT and therefore enables the possibility to connect advanced sensors with the digital BiSS-Interface to real-time closed loop controls via EtherCAT.
On the three days of the trade fair, we were happy to welcome a lot of visitors to our booth and present to them the products and services of our company. We were able to talk to many customers and prospective buyers and learned a lot about their requirements and wishes, that helps us to improve our products, too. Therefore, we would like to say thank you to all visitors of our booth for the shown interest in our company and the friendly and informative conversations.
