Directors re-elected

At the annual general assembly of CiA (CAN in Automation), three directors have been re-elected: Arnulf Lockmann (Janz), Heinz-Juergen Oertel (Port), and Holger Zeltwanger (pictured right). They lead the non-profit association since 2005.

The CiA members also nominated the Technical Committee and Business Committee delegates (esd, Janz, Port, Schneider, Vector, and Wachendorff).

The CiA international users’ and manufacturers’ group, which supports the international standardized Controller Area Network (CAN) serial communication system (ISO 11898 series) has more than 500 members worldwide.

“The members requested activities to improve the standardization of CANopen device descriptions in order to simplify the selection of products,” says Holger Zeltwanger, the re-elected Managing Director. “This could lead to a data base, in which the system designer may search for specific device functionalities.”
