Final sprint: SPS IPC Drives and Bauma Shanghai

As usual, the SPS IPC Drives and Bauma Shanghai tradeshows take place at the very same week. CiA serves both exhibitions and is present in Nuremberg as well as in Shanghai. This is always a challenge for the small CiA team.

SPS IPC Drives addresses the German and Middle European industrial automation market. CiA focuses on CANopen FD and will present first CANopen FD products on its stand (hall 5-410). Additionally, CiA staff will inform about all CAN-related topics ranging from physical layer to CANopen FD profiles. CiA will also inform its testing, publication and training services.

Bauma Shanghai is the leading exhibition on construction and mining machinery in Far East. CiA is again part of the German Pavilion in hall 2 (stand 831). CANopen is one of the leading embedded network technologies on this market. Of course, there are also J1939-based networks and proprietary application layer protocols in use.

These both tradeshows are the last exhibition activities of CiA in 2018. Next year, CiA intends to participate at the Bauma, Embedded World, Interlift, and SPS IPC Drives fairs.
