EtherCAT

EtherCAT® is the open, real-time Ethernet network based on the widely used 100BASE-TX cabling system. EtherCAT® enables high-speed control of multiple axes while maintaining tight synchronization of clocks in the nodes. With EtherCAT® "processing on the fly", Ethernet frames (or data packets) are no longer received, then interpreted and passed for every node. EtherCAT® messages are passed before being processed in each node. This allows for high speed and efficiency. A single message can update all nodes on an entire subnet.

EtherCAT® Benefits

  • Deterministic and high-speed update rates
  • Tight Synchronization
  • Flexible Topology (line, tree, star)
  • Faster Installation
  • Higher Reliability
