SCS open link is an open standard. With the aim of making an open source interface available to the Community members which would guarantee them smooth interoperability of every component. Deployed in the drive system, though being from different manufacturers.
In order to ensure compliance with our standards, SCS open Link products undergo the certification process of the SCS open link test laboratory. This ensures and guarantees standardized compliance and interoperability with products from other manufacturers which allows for trouble-free deployment of components from different sources in the same system.
