Board of Directors re-elected

(PresseBox) (Erlangen, ) The General Assembly of the CAN in Automation (CiA) non-profit organization has re-elected its three directors: Arnulf Lockmann (Janz AG) as Business Director, Heinz-Jürgen Oertel (Port) as Technical Director, and Holger Zeltwanger as Managing Director running the CiA office. The CAN (Controller Area Network) trade association with 526 members has had a successful business year. About 1000 engineers have been trained in CAN/CANopen technologies. And some additional CANopen specifications have been released (e. g. application profile for photovoltaic systems).

The increasing number of members (January 2006: 460; January 2007: 520) and the associated increase of activities made it necessary to move the 1992 founded association into larger office facilities. The new office is located in the center of Nuremberg at Kontumazgarten 3 (CIP code: 90429). The new telephone number is +49-911-928819-0 (Fax: -79). The office provides the possibility to held seminars, workshops, and working group meetings.
