The milestone was commemorated at this year’s SPS IPC Drives show in Nuremberg, Germany, which also hosted the debut of the Sercos TSN Demonstrator. Jürgen Welker, divisional director of control systems and service at Koch, represented the company to accept the official membership certificate and accompanying award.
Martin Rostan, executive director of the ETG, presented the award. “Koch Pac-Systeme joining the ETG is evidence of how well accepted EtherCAT P is already as an extension to EtherCAT,” said Rostan.
ETG recently published the initial draft of its EtherCAT P specification documents.
