Newsletter 1, 2020

Good resolutions are a good start!
 
Dear reader
 
Your MESCO team wishes you a successful 2020! Thank you for placing your trust in us, and thank you for the good cooperation in the past year.
We successfully realised more than 40 projects for you in 2019. You benefit from our innovation and efficiency, while we benefit from the large range of new technologies, which is typical for the electronics and automation sector.
If you are not a customer yet, we would like to invite you to take your first mutual steps with us in 2020. Now is the time for good resolutions and we imagine that cutting development times is quite high up on your list this year.

Product managers are pushing development departments to finish products faster and with ever more features, yet while maintaining the same high quality. This wish is particularly pronounced in the field of Functional Safety, since the market is waiting for these products. The challenge, however, is that the development times are longer and the risks higher. Thanks to our extensive experience with different project types, the concrete hardware and software development as well as methods, tools and certifying bodies, MESCO can take over parts of your product development for you independently.

MESCO presented the hardware and software development platforms at the trade fair SPS 2019. The individual Design Packages cover the areas of safe fieldbus communication, safety architecture (SIL2/SIL3), safe I/O, and encoders. This allows us to optimally implement motion control, safe I/O and functionally safe sensor/actuator projects. We are very grateful for the extremely positive reactions received to date and the first orders placed for this type of project realisation.
We look forward to an exciting new year with you!

Here in our region, close to the Swiss border, we say “En guetes Neues!”
An idiom not easy to pronounce even for the rest of Germany.
Anyway, it means "Wishing you a good one!"

Best regards from Lörrach,

Your

Peter Bernhardt

Faster time to market through Safety Design Packages & Development Services

Expert Knowlegde makes the difference

As a result of many years of experience in the field of product development MESCO have come up with the concept of Design Packages. These are proven circuits and software components. With their help we develop customized solutions for your individual requirements.

        

Build-up on base board / expansion boards as a reference design, our Design Packages simplify and accelerate the development in both safety- and non-safety-related environments.

Sensors, actuators, motion control projects or I/O modules – with our know-how, we implement for you projects of the highest quality with short development times, reduced costs and risks.

BiSS Association e.V. grants 500th license to MESCO

MESCO develops hardware and software for encoder interfaces in customer-specific projects. That is why MESCO has joined the BiSS Association.

The open source interface BiSS continues to gain increasing popularity and correspondingly increasing demand. The bidirectional sensor interface introduced by iC-Haus in 2002 has established itself as a worldwide standard in encoder and drive technology. BiSS Association e.V. particularly welcomes its 500th licensee MESCO!

Electronics development – let’s play it safe...

Dear reader
 
At present, automation is defined by IoT, Industrial Communication and Functional Safety. A huge number of developers are working with these topics to make products smarter, safer and more communicative. But are the products really getting better?

As experts in Communication and Safety, we know how complex it can be to implement an Industrial Ethernet interface in compliance with standards or even to implement a safety-relevant development and certify it.
We use our expertise to help you with the development. We take over standard interfaces or HW/SW part or complete electronic developments right up to certification.

We have our MESCO Design Packages at your perusal to help you reach your goals quickly and efficiently. Currently, we present the Software Library Fieldbus Wrapper, which abstracts Black-Channel based Secure Communication and is ideal for multiprotocol applications.
Safety Ethernet protocols can thus be implemented much more easily and quickly. This leaves time for genuine product improvement and innovation...

With this in mind, we also support you with our White Papers: Our expertise for you – plain and simple. In this issue of our newsletter, you will find information about the Safety System FMEA. We hope you reap benefits from it.

Anyway, get in touch with us! We look forward to hearing from you!
 
Best regards,

Your

MESCO Design Package: Safe Fieldbus Wrapper IP

Our latest design package Safe Fieldbus Wrapper IP Design Package is a safety-relevant software library, which provides a generic communication interface between safe, Ethernet-based fieldbus stacks and safe device software.

Specific, safe fieldbus data is converted into an abstraction layer. Different safety stacks can thus be implemented without changing the interface to the software device application.

This is particularly beneficial for multi-protocol implementations of Ethernet-based fieldbuses such as PROFISAFE, FSoE, CIP Safety, CC-Link Safety.

The library Safe Fieldbus Wrapper IP can be used for safety projects up to SIL3.
