The MECHATROLINK Members Association reports that it has been aggressively promoting compliance with international standards to globalize MECHATROLINK.
Semiconductor and electrical equipment manufacturers have been working toward acquiring certification under the SEMI E54 Standard. MECHATROLINK was approved for SEMI E54.19 standard certification on January 18, 2007.
SEMI E54 is a standard for Sensor/Actuator Network Communication which offers certification to companies using networks and reduced wiring systems. The MECHATROLINK Group is the first Japan-based group in the motion control network field to be certified for the standard.
MMA plans to promote compliance with other standards to accelerate the globalization of MECHATROLINK.
