About us

The community consists of sensor manufacturers and manufacturers of related evaluation units.

Baumer, Hengstler and Kübler presented the SCS open link interface in 2017 as open standard protocol for encoder and sensor applications, with numerous network partners as another driving factor. SCS open link component compliance is ensured by an independent specialized laboratory.

The SCS open link protocol is accessible to the public as open source with all relevant details for efficient and fast implementation.
The SCS open link brand and IP can be accessed free of charge.

Detailed information on brand and IP licensing as well as external supplier support, market-oriented products and application potential for industrial encoders, motor controlles and masters, can be found on this webpage.
