The JVL SERCOS modules for MAC motors have all the important features from the Sercos specification. Automatic recognition of drives is supported by the FSPDrive and the Sercos Drive profiles (FSPDrive/PackProfile/SercosDrive). Synchronization is supported enabling simultaneously operation of up to 511 motors. Hot plugging and redundancy is possibly for exchanging motors without power off. Probe/capture is supported enabling use also in packaging machines. JVL deliver SDDML files so the motor is recognized as FSPDrive by BoschRexroth. JVL Sercos motor is found and recognized as a SercosDrive without the presence of a SDDML file if you "scan” from the BoschRexroth development environment (Indra Works).
