By Control Design Staff

An electronic survey of Control Design readers was conducted in February 2013 in order to identify usage and application trends of motions, drives and motors among the industrial machine builders that comprise Control Design's readership.

Respondents who use a digital bus indicated use of EtherNet/IP at 36.7%; CAN/CAN open at 10% and SERCOS/SERCOS III at a further 10%. The remaining digital bus usage for motion control showed DeviceNet (8.3%), EtherCat 8.3%, Powerlink, (3.3%), and Profinet (6.7%).
