Synapticon at SPS IPC Drives 2013
Consistent platform for flexible automation solutions
Gruibingen (Germany), 28 October 2013 – Synapticon GmbH, the developer of a consistent development platform for cyber-physical systems, is set to present at SPS IPC Drives in Nuremberg, Germany, from 26 to 28 November 2013. Visit Synapticon at Booth 151 in Hall 1. The company will demonstrate the latest expansion of SOMANET, a modular system made up of CPU, interface and control modules, which makes it possible to implement intelligent, distributed sensor/actuator systems more quickly and easily. Synapticon will also offer visitors an insight into the OBLAC tool chain, which is used to develop the embedded software for the systems constructed from the SOMANET modules. The trade fair booth will be surrounded by a mobile manipulator, and Synapticon plan to demonstrate reference projects from their work as development service providers for complex electromechanical automation solutions.
“What are the advantages of the SOMANET platform in a nutshell? Well, you could say that SOMANET is a type of Arduino for professional developers and applications. We use SOMANET to provide electronic modules, which can be used to develop new sensor/actuator systems,” explains Nikolai Ensslen, Managing Director at Synapticon GmbH. “What’s so advanced is that the modules are perfectly aligned and their development environment is completely aligned on distributed systems with parallel computing power and real-time capability. This, along with their small size, makes them ideal for autonomous cyber-physical systems. It means that the SOMANET modules can be used in prototypes and mass production.”
Synapticon will use SPS IPC Drives to present a series of new SOMANET hardware modules, including a Wi-Fi module and a particularly powerful GPIO module, alongside the familiar modules for actuators, sensors and EtherCAT and CAN-Bus communication.
